If you want to start an IGT winning streak, it's best to do so on a night where deGrom is starting.

vs Sonny Gray making his third MFY start
Gray is 0-2 so far, losing to Cleveland & Toronto, but got a little unlucky in the first one as three 1st inning errors led to two unearned runs and then his own error in the second game led to another unearned.
Plus the Yanquis bats scored a grand total of one run for him so far in the two games.

Sonny Fox was lights out in 2015. He has had arm issues since. The guy has skillz.

Pretty much as expected. Personally I would flip Cespedes and Conforto in the lineup.

Meant to ask last night, why wasn't the ESPN broadcast not blacked
out in the SNY/YES umbrella area?

I've been watching Sonny Gray for 10 seconds and already find him revolting.

Y'know, one run deficit, three run deficit ... it pretty much doesn't matter since the Mets don't show any hint of a possibility that they're going to score a run.

It's stupid, but it's like getting somebody on base actually undermines their strategy of trying to hit solo homers.

So what are we up to now, like 8 singles (3 never leaving the IF) and 2 solo HRs over the last 15 innings or so?

And now they have five HRs in this series and we have maybe five balls out of the infield.

You know how in the last game of the season, there's this unspoken understanding by both teams that they'd just swing at shit and get it over with and go home? I feel like the mets have been in this mode since at least the third week of July.

Wilmer Flores, giving us our best trips to the plate these days. I kind of think it's because he's angry.

OK, Smitty. That's two.

I tend to agree with your first thought, Gary. Take the free baserunner that the bunt offers.

Not only are about 40% of the high-priced seats in that stadium empty, but at least 40% of those who are there aren't watching the game, something that becomes even more obvious when they show replays.

Terry's Pinch hitting = Genius
