St. Patrick

Unless you’re talking about winning, there is much to digest since our last update.

I don’t have a whole lot of sympathy for Matt Harvey, who was a dingbat ever since pulling up to his first Spring Training in an Escalade and becoming Mike Francesca’s favorite player. Never learned the difference between actually working on his craft and bullshit bravado and undermined his teammates over and over again.

His polar opposite, Jacob deGrom, in the meantime is taking a seven-day break on the disabled list necessitating tonight’s Mets debut for P.J. Conlon. The Ireland-born righty wore No. 80 during Spring Training but the club hasn’t announced a jersey for him yet. I’d like to remind them that 33 is very available.

PJ’s Twitter handle and Las Vegas number was 29. That’s available now, and was last worn by Tommy Milone, another Irish Met.

You don’t need me to tell you this but the Mets look just awful: Michael Conforto is slumping like he did back in 16; and the team is following the pattern of the ’15 group but coming apart on the heels of a big winning streak that included a Travis d’Arnaud injury. It’s pretty plain the Mets desperately need a more capable catcher than Jose Lobaton or Tomas Nido – the latter wearing No. 3 these days.

Oh, and Cespedes is hurt. Go Mets!

    29 will look better on Conlon’s back than 46 or 80, so I’m going with 29. Regardless, let’s hope he has a nice debut against an offense that’s probably not much better than the AAA teams he’s recently faced. We need a decent #3, #4, & #5 starter!

    #60, per MLB Jersey Numbers on Twitter.

    I don’t get it—-why give him a spring training number? Just give him #29. It’s available and he obviously likes it.

    Mets now have two #60’s on their 40 man – Conlon and Guillorme.

    Mesoraco in uniform tonight #29
