I don't like Conforto in center and Nimmo on a corner.

Flexie pitching like an adult here. If not particularly effective, he's getting the job done.

Questions:
Is this game being played in slow motion?
Why do we care if Hoskins gets his first major league hit? SNY is covering this like he's a Met.
Not that it really matters but if the Walker deal was decided upon at around 6 PM last night, why isn't McGowan with the team by now?

Yes, but 4-1/2 innings (1/2 a game) in approx 1:35 actually qualifies as just about normal these days.
Twelve of the 15 games played yesterday were over three hours, eight of them came in north of 3:10, so what was once a rarity is now the norm.

What a lovely cheap double play with the bases loaded.

Herrera does his best to move the game along.

That one was even worse than what the BoSox "accomplished" on Friday after Reed blew up their lead in the 8th.
Aroldis Chapman started the 9th by walking the first three hitters. Then came a Sac Fly to LF to cut the lead to one but the runner on 2nd decides to tag also and is thrown out at 3rd (for the rare SF-DP)
One out later the Sox had lost by one.

Young Dom does have a nice ability to get bat on ball.
He's making square contact nearly each time even if it's not always the hardest contact.

Why does a game between two sorrt azz teams have to take so long.

I liked that hit by Cabrera. Rips a foul down the left-field line. Rips a foul down the right-field line. Then he drives one off the pitcher.

Are we positive that it wasn't Gsellman?

#61 for those scoring at home (or even if you're alone)

Today's 6-2 win was the Mets' 100th regular-season 6-2 win in their 56-year history. Celebrate with a six-pack...and a couple of shots.

That is kinda sad. Only 100 6-2 wins? But I know there are a lot of different score combos...

If it earns us a six-pack AND two shots, how can it be sad?
In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, "I have finished." There is a lot of satisfaction in that - Fred Lebow
