Buying Viagra

Cheapest viagra                                                                                 The Ol’ Perfesser

Cheapest viagra As promised in my last post, cheapest viagra it’s time for the 2013 NY Mets first half report card.  Unlike years past there is room for optimism even though the team has not had a winning monthly record since June of 2012, cheapest viagra that’s seven consecutive months of losing, cheapest viagra but the tide seems to be turning.  There is optimism in that the young arms are starting to emerge as we see today with Matt Harvey being named the starter for tomorrow nights All Star Game. Cheapest viagra Zack Wheeler has shown some growing pains but he should figure it out and Noah Syndergarrd talk is all the rage.

Cheapest viagra But the club needs bats and needs them badly but that’s a post for another day. Cheapest viagra On to the grades:

Cheapest viagra John Buck Grade C

Cheapest viagra Took off like a rocket in April with the bat hitting 9 HR and driving in 23 runs. Cheapest viagra From months May thru July, cheapest viagra Buck has hit 5 HR and knocked in 23 runs. Cheapest viagra The biggest aspect of catching is defense, cheapest viagra while Buck is not a great catcher; he is a vast improvement over what the Mets have had the last two years. Cheapest viagra He’s holding the seat warm until Travis D’Arnaud gets himself healthy and ready for the big leagues, cheapest viagra most likely next season.

Cheapest viagra Ike Davis Grade F

Cheapest viagra UGH! What a mess Ike is. Cheapest viagra So far the great re-invention of Ike Davis approach at the plate has been a failure.  His first couple games when Ike came back from Las Vegas there was a bit of an improvement but the last week he’s back to his ass going one way and his arms going the other. Cheapest viagra UGH! I sense Sandy Alderson’ patience are wearing thin with Ike and with Davis arbitration eligible next season  Ike looks like a lock for non-tender status.

Cheapest viagra Daniel Murphy Grade D

Cheapest viagra Who doesn’t love Murph? He plays his ass off, cheapest viagra worked very hard to be a serviceable 2nd baseman and has battled serious injury to come back strong.  But Murphy like Ike is at a crossroads in his career. Cheapest viagra He’s making just a shade under $3mil this season and would be looking for a raise towards the $5mil mark in 2014. Cheapest viagra He’s 28 years old he doesn’t draw walks and he hits with little power and is not a solid fielder. Cheapest viagra Add 2nd base as another position the Mets will need to upgrade in 2014.

Cheapest viagra Ruben Tejada Grade F

Cheapest viagra I’ve never been a fan of Tejada’s and never understood what some baseball people saw in him. Cheapest viagra He’s in Las Vegas now and will most likely be there until September. Cheapest viagra Call this addition by subtraction.

Cheapest viagra David Wright Grade A+

Cheapest viagra Just put a decent bat behind Wright and he’ll put up numbers like have never been seen in Flushing. Cheapest viagra Just having a decent bat like Marlon Byrd protecting him has allowed Wright to put up solid numbers. Cheapest viagra His defense has also improved to where you might as well give him the Gold Glove now. Cheapest viagra He has also embraced the role of Captain showing more leadership on the field than we’ve ever seen. Cheapest viagra David Wright is one of the top 10 players in baseball and we are damn lucky to have him on our team.

Cheapest viagra Lucas Duda Grade C

Cheapest viagra Duda and Josh Satin could be the demise of Ike Davis. Cheapest viagra Duda will never see left field again as a Met and that’s a major plus. Cheapest viagra It’s not Duda’s fault that he was a lousy outfielder, cheapest viagra he never played outfield and when he was moved back to his natural position of 1st base he looked like a new man. Cheapest viagra But then he went down with a strained intercostal muscle pull and hasn’t be heard from since. Cheapest viagra  Duda’s 14 % BB rate and .204 ISO is what has me not quitting on him, cheapest viagra I’d love to see him get back soon healthy and coupled with Satin as a very productive 1st base platoon. Cheapest viagra Sorry Ike.

Cheapest viagra Juan Lagares Grade D

Cheapest viagra Tough grade for the young center fielder but when you break it down his offense is an F and his defense is an A. Cheapest viagra Thought of giving him a C but he lost his job to Kirk Nuienhuis so that dropped it to a D

Cheapest viagra Marlon Byrd Grade A

Cheapest viagra All the Sandy Alderson critics were screaming “where’s the bargain signing that pays off” well here you have him in Marlon Byrd. Cheapest viagra Now no one, cheapest viagra even the Mets GM , cheapest viagrathought Byrd would contribute as much as he has. Cheapest viagra Byrd leads the team in HR’s (15) and Rib Eyes with 51 his wOBA is solid .346 and his play in right field has been stellar. Cheapest viagra So where do you fall? Keep Byrd, cheapest viagra Trade Byrd? I get the feeling Byrd will stay as the Mets GM is sick of his team sucking in the second half and is looking for a strong finish to build on for 2014. Cheapest viagra Byrd stays.

Cheapest viagra Omar Quintanilla Grade D

Cheapest viagra Best part of Q’s game is he takes a walk as in base on balls with an 11% BB rate. Cheapest viagra His defense is plausible and he’s 31 years old so he’s not the future. Cheapest viagra Mets have a big ? at shortstop

Cheapest viagra Jordany Valdespin Grade F

Cheapest viagra Good bye and good riddance.  If Valdespin had called John Buck the name he called Terry Collins, cheapest viagra he’d be getting fit for dentures today.

Cheapest viagra Mike Baxter Grade D

Cheapest viagra Still can’t understand why he had to go to Las Vegas and JV1 got to stay big big mistake. Cheapest viagra Baxter better lefty bat off the bench than Vladespin.

Cheapest viagra Justin Turner Grade D

Cheapest viagra Teammates love him and his pies but where does he fit on this team on the field? Isn’t Josh Satin Justin Turner but with talent?

Cheapest viagra Kirk Nieuwenhuis Grade C

Cheapest viagra Looks like Kirk has won the CF job and the last couple of weeks his bat has come alive and his play in centerfield has been solid. Cheapest viagra A C grade may be a bit generous but Kirk gets a little more love due to grit.

Cheapest viagra Anthony Recker Grade Incomplete

Cheapest viagra Poor guy doesn’t play enough but when he does he hits with pop with a .237 ISO but it’s a very limited sample. Cheapest viagra He could find his way as a Sunday catcher with Mets when Travis d’Arnuad makes his debut

Cheapest viagra Josh Satin Grade Incomplete

Cheapest viagra Again small sample size but he has forced Terry Collins hand as Ike Davis regresses and the team looking to win games and stop the loser mentality Satin has played his way into the lineup. Cheapest viagra Easy guy to root for.

Cheapest viagra Terry Collins Grade C

Cheapest viagra Some days I’m pro-Collins some days I’m looking for his replacement. Cheapest viagra Collins handles the press and his clubhouse as well as anyone in the game but when it comes to in game strategy and handling his bullpen, cheapest viagra Collins is playing checkers while the opposing manger is playing chess. Cheapest viagra Second half of the season will determine if Collins is the Mets skipper in 2014

Cheapest viagra Tomorrow the pitching staff.
