Apparently he lost 25 pounds? How I have no idea but they are attributing it to his loss of velocity.


He had 25 pounds to lose?!

I think they meant he lost 25 pounds of weed. He's depressed now since that happened, so it's affecting his pitching.

Can this be the Jason Bay we met fans have been waiting for? Also great to see Ike get a homer today. I

4-0 against the Braves and going for another series win tomorrow with Johan on the mound.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I'm not but he made a great play in the OF and he hit a bomb. Ill take anything at this point. Anything is better than last year's performance.

He was doing a strict swimmer workout type thing over the offseason to increase his durability.

small sample sizes own but you have to remember your first 10 games were against the worst teams in the majors.

False. We haven't played the Giants yet.

He definitely looks thinner, especially in the legs. Not as apparent as Brian Wilson's weight loss (dude really looks like a guy who went off the sauce), but it's obvious enough to me at least. I fully expected him to look exactly the same after doubting the weight loss reports, but when I saw him in uniform I was convinced.

Well... fences were moved in. Can't hurt. He won't be the Bay of the Pirates or even the Red Sox, but he should at least be an average MLBer.

Yeah I saw the game. I was happy he was able to contribute but at this point he is only really out there because of is contract.

Validating my decision to shut the game off a while ago. :bomb:

Man, what a disaster Mark Melancon has been. I thought he was supposed to be a decent reliever, he's been basically throwing batting practice all Spring.

I was listening to the game on MLB Network radio and the Boston announcer's said his ERA went from 9 to 49. Baseball stats early in the year are awesome.

49 doesn't even do justice to how brutal he's been. He's gone from "possible closer and 8th inning guy" to mop up duty in a week, pretty impressive for a guy on a new team.

Melancon was an Astros pitcher. That should validify any argument stating that he's anything but absolutely terrible.

I'm shocked that the Astros let him get away, because it seems like the motto there recently is "Hey, can you play baseball? What's that, you can?! Now kindly GTFO."

I'm on record as saying the Melancon trade was a disaster from the beginning. They had no shortstop after they traded for him. It made no sense. And he's never been any good. Not a second guess, first guess.

man rough loss tonight. Santana got banged around and man what happened to Ramirez. That 4 ER in the last two games. Well its still early and the Metsies should even out soon. Hope Dickey can take the rubber match. ATL came out to play finally.


I just hope there is 0 truth to the Mets honoring Larry Jones at Citi. I had 0 respect for Wilpon now. I never knew I could hit the negatives with this BS owner.

Rebuilding phase, yo.

They pretty much got a King's Ransom of prospects for Pence. If they all pan out, score.

Schafer doesn't seem so bad, right now.

Melancon wasn't that bad when he was pitching with the Astros.

Glad the Braves finally got the offense going and beat the Mets. Could have a good year if they can get some offense going as the pitching is solid through the rotation and bullpen. And will get better when Hudson makes it back.

Damn Dodgers lose another in play at the plate, Matt Kemp ball was in time but catcher didn't place the tag in time. Man it was fun though 5 infielders for the final two brewers.

They should've asked for Domonic Brown in the deal. He's just wasting away with Pence taking his roster spot.

My point was that usually in a rebuilding phase, the team keeps at least ONE guy that can do.. well.. SOMETHING for their team.

Bartolo Colon threw 38 straight strikes. That is ridiculous.

Good game for the Rangers tonight. Getting to the Boston bullpen in the 8th again was nice.

The game between the Giants and Phil's reminds me how much I wish the Rangers still had Lee.

While I do miss Lee, I don't wish we still had him. He would have cost too much money down the line which is the same reason I don't wish we still had CJ. I love the rotation as it is right now.

I'm glad we swept the two-game stint from Boston, but the the Rangers face their first playoff-caliber team this weekend in Detroit. The Rangers have always played bad at Comerica, but the same was true at Minnesota's new ballpark. Theoretically, I would love to see them split the series. Gonna be interesting to see Darvish face the best hitting team he has ever faced.
