I Didn’t Watch the Game

The Mets won. I don’t know the score. I saw DeGrom returned to form. As one of my two war room generals put it, let the Reckers of the fan base get this one. Today we rest.

What a glorious rest it was. I probably would’ve ended up watching if I was home, but I had a softball game. We won. Everything’s coming up Milhouse. 

Also, the Dodgers lost. We care. Make your jokes about how we suck at home now, but you want the higher seed. Of course you do. If you take the whole season into account, the Dodgers are GREAT at home and BAD away. The Mets are apparently perfectly capable of winning anywhere, so get the Dodgers the fuck out of Cali. 

Should Harvey Pitch Today?

Mets 12, Reds 5

Duda 2 dingers blah blah. Thor great start yada yada.

Let’s get down to business here: The magic number is 1 (Nattitude!). Harvey is on the mound today. Should he be pitching? Of course he should be. We can finish it today and that’s exactly what we should do. Finish it. Don’t let anything crazy happen. Don’t let it go to Philly where hey who knows maybe just maybe but no way but maybe the Phillies are game to spoil our party. Maybe just maybe but no way the Nats step up and start winning but yeah no way.

So, mainly thanks to Nattitude, this hasn’t really been a pennant race. Even so, the people saying we should rest Harvey are retarded. It ain’t over till it’s over. Of course you put Harvey out there today. Close it out today and then you can officially rest everyone for 2 weeks and that should be plenty. Close it out today and we can watch Recker and EY and Soup in the starting lineup for the last games of the season and have a good laugh about it.

Everyone get the fuck off of Harvey’s back. He’s coming off of MAJOR SURGERY. No shit he’s confused. No shit everyone’s confused. The dude is a young beast in the limelight. Give him a fucking break. Across town, they’re lovingly embracing A-Roid as a hero for getting them to the postseason. The Yankee fans may be dumb assholes, but they cheer for winners. Harvey has been a big part of our first winning season in a long time. He’s been a big part of the culture change here. For fucks sake, cut the kid a break. Metsblow Nation knows that all these bullshit problems and media spins are a result of the Jewpons fucking things up and then manipulating the media to point the finger at the players. Don’t be fooled.

Magic Number 3…Wow

Mets 6, Reds 4

Hard to imagine a team with Votto, Phillips, and Bruce could be so awful. They have rookie pitching. We have rookie pitching. The difference? Ours are elite (supposedly) and there’s are poo-poo. We’ll see what Thor can do on the road tonight.

So-so start from Steven Matzohballsoup. Atone for that shit, brother. Whatever. We won. Back-to-back-to-back hits from Murph, Cespedes, and Duda sealed the deal. That’s what we’ve been waiting for. More Nattitude helped us and our magic number is now at 3. Remarkable. What’s funny is that 90 wins (we may finish with a couple more) is good enough to make the playoffs as a wildcard team 4 out of 5 years. And it just so happens that this year, 90 would NOT be enough. The Pirates and Cubs will both finish with better records than the Mets. Somehow, someway, (keep coming up with funky ass shit like every single day), the predicted 100+ wins Nats might not even get to 82. Wow. NL LEAST. Wow.

It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over

I’m not even going to post yesterday’s score.

The Mets need to take a page out of the late great Yogi Berra’s book. Named after a famous bear, Yogi said, “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.” Wake up, fucktards. Losing to the Braves at home? Really? They’re soooo sweepable. Take some advice from one of the greatest, winningest athletes of all time.

Vets gotta step up. Big Sexy Bartolo Colon tonight. Gotta win this game. If we lose this game, I don’t even want to make the playoffs.
