Asdrubal Cabrera is valued at 0.9 Wins Above Replacement, but his recent production has been irreplaceable. Cabrera's third homer in two games gave the Mets a third-inning lead over the Phillies. The Mets are 57-48 when Cabrera starts this season, 8-15 when he doesn't. Cabrera's 16 home runs are his most in a season since he hit that many with the 2012 Indians.

In his Jets debut, RB Matt Forte played 11 of 20 snaps in the first quarter -- 6 carries for 15 yards, two catches for nine yards. They moved him around the formation, using him on the left and right wings. The offense looks lost without Brandon Marshall (inactive).

It appears as if coach Ben McAdoo is calling plays. He has the oversized menu-looking chart. OC Mike Sullivan had called plays in first 2 preseason games.

This preseason has been a re-birth for the Jets' special teams, which stunk last season. Bruce Carter blocked a punt deep in Giants territory to set up the offense, which fumbled it back to the Giants. Not exactly crisp football.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall, chatting with personnel director Brian Heimerdinger, is scratched from tonight's game. He's smiling and talking with people along the sideline. If he's resting, it's an odd game to take off.
