That sucked. Mets blow. It’s the Syndergaard game that really mattered. We were never going to win a spot start vs. Scherzer.
Everyone’s looking to Sandy. Everyone’s acting like, “oooh we got a Cubano last year and that solved everything! Let’s do that again!” Even Sandy acknowledged how fucking lucky he was last year. Gomez’s balky hip. The team going on a tear with Cespedes playing out of his mind. Jesus blessing Murphy. Sandy said, “everything broke right.” It was luck, basically. Gourriel isn’t even ML ready.
One thing that could happen but won’t: trade the farm for Arenado. That plus Conforto finding it again and Lagares being healthy and nobody else getting hurt (HA!) could save this team.
Here comes 4 games against the Cubs. Remember how we swept them in the NLCS? Get ready for the opposite.
Did you guys stay up? Beat the Booth was awesome. Gary & Howie are awesome.
Oh and there was a Mets game? Let me just say this to Nattitude Nation: I have no idea if Giolito (grandson of the dude who played Susan’s dad on Seinfeld!) is good or great or whatever. He very well could be. But if you think yesterday is any indication, you’re a fucking moron. We couldn’t hit Ollie Perez!! We can’t get a fucking hit at a Bob Marley concert.
Scherzer tonight. Should get swept. Should be out of it by the ASB.
Ooooooh this team is SHOT!! Here comes Mets disease for everyone.
Matz is dead. Thor says that he’s fine but he sure did suck last night. We may never see either of them again.
I’m the stupidest. I actually got fooled. Thor got out of the 1st inning jam and we tacked on runs and I thought we were dialing in for the big series here. Ace on the mound. Nimmo with his first hit. Some key hits with RISP. Ahhhh nope, we’re terrible. Worst loss of the year. They keep finding new ways to outdo themselves.
Bastardo mopped it up nicely. Prolly his best outing all year.
HarveyDay today. He’s taking on their new stud prospect (ML debut). Get ready for “Giolito’s better” chants. DC folk probably aren’t clever enough to do it.
Well, Bastardo’s ERA was infinity last night. 3 runs and 0 outs. BRILLIANT! It’s the walks, really. He has no control. He walked, he balked, he sucked. And it has really been all season. He was really good with the Pirates. I don’t get it. He got paid, maybe? How do you lose command of your fastball so easily? What a bastard. Somewhere, Lyanna Stark is crying, “promise me, Sandy, promise me you’ll find a better reliever.”
It’s not all on him. Colon let up a solo dinger to Freeman (why is he pitching to him at all!?) and that was the game. Colon pitched great coming off of getting hit in the hand by a comebacker last outing but he’s gotta know it’s zeroes or bust with this team. Talk to deGrom about it.
Nimmo 0-4. Take it slow, buddy. Reyes 0-3 in Brooklyn. Oops.
Another classic Mets loss. Another sinfully boring game. We avoided the shutout in garbage time, but peeeeeee-ew what a stinker. A split with Los Bravos woooow we blow. 2-5 in our last seven games against them. Wow. Good thing the Nats blow, too, and we’re only 3 games out. On to Washington D.C. to take back the white house, BYAAAHH!!
Uhh hey Terry, he’s there to play! Cespedes can’t slide. Maybe give him a day? At least pinch run for him. De Aza doesn’t run out bad bunts in extra innings. Maybe bench him? Nimmo better be in the starting lineup tomorrow.
deGrom knew it was zeroes or bust, put up zeroes, and still didn’t get the win. He’s such a class act; I’m sure he just said that he’s happy the team got a win, but maaaan that’s gotta eat away at a pitcher. The Mets haven’t scored a run while he’s been on the mound in over 20 innings.
Hey Jose, do you think you can take over the team lead in steals from David Wright? He has 3. Second on the team is Conforto with 2. Oh wait, he got demoted. Another good move. He’ll be back.
Professor Reyes has returned! “Professor Reyes” is the greatest jumbotron bit of all time with the possible exception of when they put two chicks up on the kiss cam. I’m pretty sure that’s how Pamela Anderson was discovered, but I digress.
I love this move, unless it means no Gourriel. We all know that a Dominican cannot be used as a substitute for a real Cuban.
Reyes is so HUNGRY and HAPPY to be back. That’s what I love about it. If he succeeds or fails, this is a good move because he is going to TRY HARD and that can go a looooong way. It’s the right place and right time to have a chance for a renaissance (a Reyessance?). Pray for his health. Odds favor digging his grave plot now. Put it side by side with David’s.
Attention Christian Nation: Enough with the “classless” talk! Enough with the “he’s evil” talk! You racist fucks! First of all, doesn’t Jesus say to forgive? Let he who is without sin beateth the first spouse. Now I know Mrs. Reyes dropping the charges means nothing because battered spouses are not necessarily thinking straight. I get that. And I think Reyes needs to do a walk of atonement. A stolen base of atonement would be nice, too. A batting tittle of atonement would be sick (sidenote: Murph’s gonna win that shit choooof). Reyes has been a standup guy his whole life. This one monstrous act is baffling and scary, but this is baseball and one strike doesn’t mean you’re out. Is he remorseful? What is he going to do to show penance? He served his suspension. He remains in therapy. Isn’t the rest between Jose, his wife, and his Gawd? How about this: If you’re so pious that you can’t watch Reyes–that Reyes being back in NY sickens you and you’re going to boo him (Jesus would do otherwise)–quit sports. Quit fandom. Shit’s pretty fucked up. I can’t argue with that, but you definitely have to turn off all sports.
I can’t fucking wait for the Jose chants. I really want Gourriel but I’m excited that the Mets are shaking things up. It feels good to know that my Reyes shirsey is relevant again. I’m excited to see Nimmo, too. Getting Reyes and sticking him 1st in the lineup feels good. It could be a spark. It’s worth a shot.
Maybe we come back and win the next 3? Not as bad as the Matz early-hook on Saturday? Is Cespedes back in the lineup today?
We’ll see how things shake up. But this game comes down to Reed throwing an 0-2 cookie and blowing it hard.
Now, lots of fagoat reporters and bloggers and radio jockeys are talking about how Reed has been good and how he just missed with this pitch. NO!!! Leave it to these mooks to get it wrong as usual.
The plan was NOT to throw it in the dirt. Therefore, the plan was wrong. Oh what you’re worried about a wild pitch? No, you fucking morons!! It’s PLANNED. A catcher can field a fucking ground ball. You practice the pitch in the dirt. Throwing an 0-2 pitch anywhere near the strike zone (and yes, despite the “miss,” the plan was for it to slide just outside) should result in your locker being burned.
This is something that Terry should have nipped in the bud a long time ago. During simulated games and spring training and whatnot, any pitcher who throws an 0-2 pitch near the strikezone should have been forced to throw BP to Cespedes. A round of your pitches being teed the fuck off might help you remember. Also, all your ham sandwiches would be smacked to the ground.
Horrible call. Horrible coaching. Someone teach these guys how to play baseball. For the love of god, I hope none of them read or listen to any other Mets analysis except for me and GKR. There sure are a lot of retards out there, including ones in the dugout and on the field.
No, it’s not a Chinese team saying, “work hard, pray hard!” I’m talking about actual prayer. Pray to the Old Gods and the New. Cespedes (wrist) and Syndergaard (elbow!!) both left today’s game (we won…pyrrhic…horrible). Without them, I think we might be 20-60 at this point. Yes, we are about halfway. Yes, we must pray.
I fear that without Daniel Murphy, our prayers might not be heard. Pray extra hard. Pray the hardest.
Game ball to Dru. Some good D and a dinger. Also a ball and a blessing to Reynaldo, who hit his first ever dinger for what would prove to be the game-winner. Up next is the dreaded, merciless Braves in haunted Turner field. Should be about 20 people in the stands. And the ghosts of all our failures and even last week’s debacle at Shitti will loom there, too.
Robles actually did something good! Now let’s see Terry abuse him in the long relief role until he completely falls apart!
Pray for Tolo. First batter boom comebacker right off the pitching thumb.
Pray for Wheeler. He suffered a setback. Elbow. Praaaay. All of a sudden we’re light.
Pray for Henderson. He’s “hurt.” Now Colins’ decision to bring him in over Matz on Saturday looks even worse!
Pray for TDA. He nailed a runner in the 1st (nice tag by Dru, too) and it set the tone. He also caught a tough game, dealing with lots of relievers in a real nail-biter.
Pray to the dinger Gods because we sure as fuck need them. Asdrubal hit one today and Cespedes hit one so far it could’ve counted for two. Pretty much dead center, but a little bit left of the apple.
The Royals look light without Mouse and Gordon, but they’re still good. Mediocre at best ex-Yankee Ian Kennedy held is down cuz we blow but I’ll take 2 solo dingers and superb pitching for a win. That’s what this team does.
