Yesterday, Luis Rojas said that Kevin Pillar was hitting the ball hard, but just getting unlucky. Guess he was right.
Donnie Stevenson teaches aggressive baserunning.
Kevin Pillar with the heads-up play!
KEVIN PILLAR GOES DEEP TO MAKE IT 5-2!
Kevin Pillar - New York Mets (2) 2-run
Kevin Pillar is simply a pro. He’s a valuable member of this team. I know many wanted him sent to the land of misfit toys after Almora made the catch, but he’s clearly the better player. #Mets
"I played damn near every day up until this year. I knew what I was signing up for when I came here...I like to remind people I can play this game"

1B Pete Alonso
LF Dominic Smith
CF Kevin Pillar
3B Jonathan Villar
C Tomas Nido

Luis Rojas has been criticized a lot this season (and he’s probably deserved some of it — what manager is perfect?).
But dang, his decision to give Kevin Pillar a shot to get rolling is paying off right now.
Monday #Mets lineup vs. #STLCards…
Jeff McNeil - 2B
Francisco Lindor - SS
Michael Conforto - RF
Pete Alonso - 1B
Dominic Smith - LF
Kevin Pillar - CF
Jonathan Villar - 3B
Tomás Nido - C
Joey Lucchesi - LHP
Jonronazo de Kevin Pillar. #Mets 5-2 en el inning 3.
I guess now Kevin Pillar is all bat no glove
"I've been a guy that has had success in the major leagues. I've been an everyday player damn well every year of my career. Speaks to the volume of the talent of this team. It's been an adjustment, but I knew what I was signing up for." Kevin Pillar @Metsmerized
Maybe Kevin Pillar is related to Donnie Stevenson
Yesterday, I asked Luis Rojas why he continued to start Kevin Pillar over Albert Almora. Rojas said the team’s metrics indicated Pillar was doing all the right things at the plate but getting unlucky.
They might’ve been right. Still early.
If Pillar completes the Bingo-Bango-Yahtzee tomorrow I’m becoming a full-time Kevin Pillar fan account
THEY’RE AFRAID OF KEVIN PILLAR
Lindor is making 34 million and Kevin Pillar has contributed more offensively
The bullpen was great, Luchessi not so much.
Kevin Pillar smashed a 3 run home run which put the Mets in front but the lead doesn’t last long.
Onto the next game which is tomorrow. Jacob DeGrom takes the hill at 7:45 PM EST.
