    Why let Mortensen hit if he was not going to start the 8th ?

    I guess they just want to keep Ciriaco in reserve.

    You have to be pretty good to hit .360 in AAA.  Pap kind of blew him away last night , but he will be a good hitter.

    I wouldn't take Ortiz out for defense.  Is Napoli that much better ?   

     



    I agree with that.  Papi is much better hitter. 

     

     



    i hope removing ortiz doesn't come back to bite farrell on the AZZ.

     

     



    It's a no-brainer.  You don't risk injury to Ortiz playing the field with a 4 run lead in the 7th.  Napoli is the starting 1st baseman, so it's not like they are putting Ross at first.  It was also hot and humid, not the most ideal conditions to be out there for the first time.   

     

     



    i keep forgetting how FRAGILE these guys are. thank god they don't play hockey.

     



    Ortiz is coming off a serious achilles injury and he's not exactly Ricky Henderson physically.  Why pose unnecessary risk?  I don't think you'll see Ortiz on skates anytime soon, and besides, John Kruk may as well have been also talking about Ortiz when he said, "I'm not an athlete, I'm a baseball player."

    I was wondering why no one seemed to notice that Salt had the wrong helmet on.

    Thank you NY Mets for sweeping the Yankees twice!!!   Laughing

    Also, thank you for screwing up Toronto's farm system by getting their top two prospects for R.A. Dickey.   Cool

    Let's hope that Bailey does not throw a lot of pitches in the 9th. I know he needs the work , but if he gets up to 20 pitches , I would pull him.

    He is putting up some good at bats. As long as he stays away from the Ks , he will be okay.

    i'd say that hitting a baseball like ortiz does is very athletic.

     



    You're missing the point, Slugger.  He's obviously a tremendous hitter, and that's what he gets paid to do.  You don't wan't your best hitter, coming off a serious injury, to get injured on a freak play with a 4 run lead in the 7th.  Farrell did the right thing by giving each of them a start, and if the game was closer, maybe you keep him out there, but pulling him was absolutely the right move under the circumstances.
