Duda? Obviously. TDA? Lock of the year. But Yo is hurt. Cover the field. Concede until he returns…if he returns. Oh and we lost the rubber game to the PHILLIES with Thor on the mound today. Unearned runs. Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Maybe we should move the fences in.
OK. I get it. 16 innings later, you wanna give Yo the day off. Fine. Stanton had the day off, too, but the Marlins have a much better–or at least more balanced–lineup. It would take at least 2 more boat crashes for them to have as shitty a team as we do.
Fortunately, we had Thor on the mound. Oops, his blister’s back. He’s dead. Nevermind. Why would the team doctors address that after it happened the first time? No waaaay it’ll happen again. Just put a bandaid on it. It’ll never happen again. Million to 1 shot. Probably never happen again. No way. It won’t cost us a win or anything. Totally probably doesn’t maybe it might happen again immediately.
But even if Thor stayed in, we didn’t hit for shiiiiiit. No Yo, no go. That’s all there is to it.
P.S. Helluva throw by Conforto.
But really, who cares about Plawecki? He’s trash. TDA is also trash. It ain’t like Conforto (who just hit a dinger, btw). Conforto is still young young YOUNG, especially in terms of MLB XP. TDA not so much. He’s already an injury-plagued has-been.
La Potencia!!! 4y/$110m. Totally fair for the hardest hitting player in the fucking league. And on this, the day wordpress is asking me to renew my account. Guess I gotta do it. Guess it’s thanks to me. Thanks to us, Metsblow nation. We prayed and we forced those Jews to cough up a little bit of Jew gold.
The Cubs are scared, and likely still drunk. Now we pray for good health and we’ve got a fucking shot. It’s actually a good time to be a Mets fan, and we all know Yo was the turning point.
Mets still blow, and will find new ways to blow, but we blow a lot less today.
I went to Saturday’s game. Awful, awful game. But the Grandy fireworks were spectacular. Almost made up for the fact that they struggled so much against the doodoo Twins. I also didn’t get a deGrom hair hat but arrived in time to let everyone know that Jacob needs surgery. Great day for deGrom day!
But what was nice was that the Mets definitely parties their faces off after the extra innings win. Yo and Grandy were probably neck deep in “it.” Cespedes had to leave the day game with a massive hangover. That’s pretty funny. He’s fine. He’s fine. Don’t panic. Stop panicking!
Also Ynoa (sounds kinda like Noah) looked like Noah and Conforto looked like pre-Bumgarner Conforto. So there’s that. Good sweep, even though it was a struggle. Interleague is tough, I guess. Facing the unknown is tough. In September, you face guys hungry for jobs. But we took care of business (eventually) and now let’s do the same against Notlanta.
