It's my personal opinion. 4 homers is not what they expected from Bay at this point. They gave him the big bucks for his power. We knew Citi would affect his power, but not this much.
Niese has a high WHIP and I am not at all impressed with what I've seen from him.
Feel free to disagree, this is a free country. It also doesn't hurt that I despise the Mets with a deep passion.
It makes you sound like a clueless homer.
Bay is on pace to hit more doubles than last year, his OBP is right where it always is and he's playing solid defense. Just because his HR numbers are down doesn't really mean anything in that ridiculous stadium.
Niese has a grand total of two negative stats, neither of which is anything more than below average, and you think he isn't good because nothing has impressed you? I'd be happy with a 23 year old lefty with 16 solid starts under his belt including a complete game already. His FIP, league average K/9 and improving BB/9 all suggest he's a legit SP and nothing about what you see changes the facts.
