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.
