Against Kershaw, What Can Ya Do?

Mets put up a goose egg agsinst Kershaw.

3 hits, no runs, complete game…any other pitcher and I’d be barkin’ at the Mets but whatever. This one had the L penciled in as soon as the probable starters were announced. And that’s not a knock on Tolo.

Truth be told, I think you gotta sit Grandy and stick Conforto in right. Because come playoff time, or even stretch time, Conforto needs to be in this lineup every day. I know MadBum owned him and even maybe caused a slump but so what? If you’re obsessed with starting Juanny Beisbol against lefties, that’s fine and I’m not mad at it, but Yung Savior needs to be out there every day. 

We didn’t hit a home run last night (obviously), but now we head to Colorado. I’m very excited to see our bats do work out there. 

Shocker of the Season: Kershaw Throws a (Nearly Perfect) Shutout Against Mets

Dodgers 3, Mets 0

I won’t say what everyone else is saying. Even the syocphantic blogs are starting to “pull a Metsblow” and call for Jeff’s (aka Joffrey’s) head. Good on them. Glad to have an effect on people.

All I’ll say is this:

To anyone who is saying, “well it’s Kershaw,” let me ask you this:

Was it Kershaw who threw a no-hitter against us? No. It was a medicore-at-best rookie for SF, and they did it IN FLUSHING.

We get shutout every other fucking day. Kershaw has nothing to do with it.

Our cleanup hitter, Mayberry, is batting .170, while our #5 hitter, Soup, is batting .179…oh and Tolo, our pitcher? He’s batting .147 hahaha.

Thank God Greinke is having a baby, otherwise it’d be back-to-back CGSOs guaranteed. Instead, the Mets face scrub Ian Thomas tonight. CGSO almost guaranteed.
