On SportsNite, Anthony McCarron and John Jastremski join Michelle Margaux following the Mets 6-4 loss to the Miami Marlins. The defeat puts New York into a tie with Atlanta in the NL East standings. Jastremski called the performance by Carlos Carrasco "pathetic," while McCarron said he is now "intrigued" to see if Taijuan Walker can seize a post season spot with Carrasco struggling.
Taijuan Walker won back-to-back starts for the first time in two months, Daniel Vogelbach homered against his former team and the New York Mets beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 4-3, Friday night.
On SportsNite, Maria Marino John Jastremski, and Chris Lopresti offer their take on whether Taijuan Walker will be part of the Mets' playoff rotation, and how big of a weapon Edwin Diaz would become in the postseason.
In this Mets post game news conference, starter Taijuan Walker knows the scouting report on him is that the splitter is his go-to pitch, but in his last two starts, Walker has relied more on his two-seam and four-seam fastball, while mixing in more curveballs as well.
