Conforto and Judge each need 5 homers to make a milestone number. Get it on.

31 is a milestone number?

Great first inning for Montero.

Does Rosario's beard look a little well, uh. in need of a groom?

Cessa looks a little Pettitte-ish in the face.

Granderson on the other hand, just looks grand.

We rule the universe in solo homers.

Why did the fans explode into cheers two seconds before Céspedes connected?

(And as I hit submit, Darling reports that they were cheering about Granderson's homer being thrown back. That guy gave you 2100 perfectly good plate appearances, you ungrateful jerks.)

If you're going to copy the Wrigley thing and throw the HRs back, a few suggestions:
a) don't
b) if you insist on doing it, do it at the right time: before the next AB, NOT DURING IT!!

I'll take the sacrifice fly there, but what a jive slide that was.

Bad job setting it up by Céspedes. And the terror of the Lunchie-fortold fourth-inning explosion is minimized run-wise, if not pitch-count-wise.

Hey, he stopped doing that thing!

Nice wrap-up to the inning for Montero.

Geez, Montero is not a lot of fun to watch when he has one of those innings.

Wheeleresque. I like Montero's stuff more, though.

Hicks is fast but there's no way he should have scored there.
I think it was one of those deals where Cespedes assumed the runner wasn't going and figured he could simply gun him out if he did try.

4 1/3, 66 pitches and Cessa's account is closed (save for Lagares on first).

Hey, Lil' Torre-- just because your pitchers wear spring training numbers doesn't mean you have to manage like it's March.

Verizon Trivia: Curtis Granderson is one of six players with 600 at-bats for both the Mets and Yankees. Who are the other five.

Uh ... Rick Cerone, Rafael Santana, Darryl Strawbowski, Carlos Beltran, Elliott Maddox.

Nice throw by Sanchez to nail Lagares.

Then he smirks like a pro wrestling villain for, like, five seconds.

Straw
Sheffield
Rickey
Granderson

oe (re: Edgy's answer) Beltran's a better answer than Ventura

That Dom Smith slip was one of those deals where, had it happened to a Yanx 1B at Shea, George would be complaining to the league office about inferior conditions and wanting the game results nullified.
And that was in one of his more rational moods. Otherwise he'd be accusing the Mets of intentionally trying to injure his players.

I don't mean to blue-jeans-test the kid, but Smith doesn't exactly inspire Keithian confidence with his posture/facial expressions between pitches.

Straw
Sheff
Rickey
Vanis Takee
Randolph?
