Albert Almora Jr just lost the Mets their season. You can’t let Albert Almora end your year.
and the mets entire season comes down to the big bat of…
albert almora jr
forget the splits*, Guillorme is hitting .296/.404/.363 since start of 2020. but yeah, let’s send Albert Almora up there
* (when given the opportunity to face lefties regularly with Vegas in 2019, Luis Guillorme hit .323/.416/.385 over 77 PA; 71 MLB PA vs LHP in 172 G)
Asked why he went with Albert Almora Jr. instead of Luis Guillorme, Luis Rojas said Guillorme wasn’t even considered
“Against a lefty, not the right matchup,” Rojas said
Guillorme is hitting 276 with a 344 OBP against LHP in 33 plate appearances this season
For some reason José Peraza is still technically on his rehab assignment, but he's clearly healthy (10 games for Syracuse now) and obviously rather have him taking at-bats instead of Albert Almora.
Should note that Peraza has played a bunch in CF during the rehab.
Yeah I get why Rojas didn’t want Guillorme batting against a lefty
Guillorme hitting .280 vs RHP and .276 vs LHP
Almora hitting .097 vs RHP and .150 vs LHP
Almora is MUCH better against LHP than RHP so obviously he has to hit since Guillorme hits LHP worse than RHP
If only the Mets met the kings ransom for Jorge Soler or Adam Duvall maybe they wouldn’t need to send up Albert Almora in clutch spots. The fails of this team still fall mostly on the front office, Rojas is just the easy scapegoat
He really put Jake Reed on the mound and pinch-hit Albert Almora Jr. in the biggest game of the season. #Mets
Luis Rojas is way too obsessed with righty/lefty matchups. I understand it in certain spots, but Luis Guillorme gives them a better chance in that spot than Albert Almora. I'm not saying Guillorme would for sure come through, but he is no doubt the better hitter. #Mets
Luis Rojas died on the hill of lefty/ righty. He doesn't care about stats or past history, but he is obsessed with lefty/ righty matchups. Does Luis know thatGuillorme is batting .125 points higher than Almora vs. lefties??
Rojas can’t even read the analytics binder correctly. If he could actually understand the reports he would have bat Guillerme over Almora since Guillorme’s numbers are better vs lefties but Rojas said that he liked the matchup with Almora. I mean you can not make this shit up
I would rather have left handed Taijuan Walker taking at bats than Almora right now
Or had we just gotten better depth in the offseason instead of Albert Almora and Kevin Pillar we wouldn’t need to have the debate of which Fettucine Alfredo bat to send up in a critical position
It’s bc Almora is the only other healthy guy that can play center. However, Peraza’s been a clutch bat all year and he needs to be here… if you’re not gonna use Guillorme in an obvious spot last night, might as well have Jose up here instead.. but that would make too much sense
That’s a really small sample size and Guillorme hasn’t had a hit since late July. The right question is why is Almora even on the roster? Needed Drury in that moment, not to mention Lee deserves a shot again. Kid raked all year in milb
Luis Rojas and today's handling of pitchers & having Albert Almora pinch hit instead of Luis Guillorme, is why the Mets don't deserve us losing sleep, or spending money to go to the ballpark. Rojas looks lost.
Almora has one use. Late or last inning defense. That's it.. He should never bat. There are at least 2 pitchers I'd bat before him.
The season ended with Jake Reed on the mound and Albert “Six hits” Almora at the plate. Let that sink in, bro. Time to move on and find a real leader
Great point. I’m honestly not sure how Almora has stuck around as long as he has. Options are nice to have on a player, but what does it matter if that player isn’t a major leaguer anymore?
And it's not like nuanced things. Fans/Media are first guessing decisions re: BP, lefty/righty obsession instead of going w/better player. It's like Jake Reed in the 11th? Almora? If you managed the game better, these wouldn't be the choices late.
I’ve never heard a manager use that excuse more than Rojas. Guillorme is a contact hitter who hits .280 against righties and .276 against lefties. Almora is batting .097 against righties and .143 against lefties. No brainer who you should go with in that spot. #FireRojas
i woke up, would’ve preferred having lee up instead of almora
