The Denver Post wrote an article about Ian Desmond this week, calling him the “biggest waste of money in Denver sports.”
The Rockies are paying Desmond $22 million this year to be their starting first baseman and he has 10 hits in 85 at-bats so far this season. He isn’t hitting homers, either. He isn’t doing much of anything, other than collecting exorbitant paychecks.
But Colorado continues to play decent baseball, decent enough to remain over .500 despite a guy making that much money and batting in the middle of the lineup hitting .118.
The Rockies aren’t a bad club but they aren’t good enough, or rich enough, to overcome something like what Desmond is giving them now.
Chad Bettis was an ace in April, winning three and losing just one start, with a WHIP around 1.00 and an ERA better than 2.50.
New York Mets
The Mets were swept away in three games at Citi Field against the upstart Braves this week. That sweep, combined with the Nats’ hot streak, has tightened up the NL East.
New York is 1.5 behind Atlanta now, with Philly right on its heels and Washington lurking, just waiting to get healthy again.
Steven Matz was questionable a day ago to make this start but he will go, despite some stiffness in his back. Assume he’s just fine because the Mets wouldn’t be running him out there if they weren’t sure he was.
Matz hasn’t given up more than 3 earned runs in a start this season but he also has yet to go even 6 innings, either. The 1.29 WHIP is indicative of what he’ll likely do for the whole season, as long as he stays healthy.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction: under.
The total should be reasonable to play. Reality is, both these starters are steady and the offenses can hit hit-or-miss. I’ll play the under if I can get 8.5 or better.
