There's still time for 1-2 players to get hurt warming up or taking BP.

Well, hey, at least he's throwing the curve for strikes consistently. There's that.

Matz is a disgrace.

Wow, Céspedes chases the slider low and away.

I wonder what the team record is for 1st inning pitch count.

That pitch would have needed to be two feet closer to the plate before it could be classified as merely low and away.

I don't believe Matz will be in the organization next season.

This game makes it now 104 runs allowed in 119 1st innings for the Mets.
That's an ERA of nearly 8.00 and a slash line (before today) of .305/.367/.517 w/26 HRs

No other inning has more than 80 RA


I'm not going to look up every other team to find out if that's the worst in all of baseball but I can't imagine that it's not.

Once again a NYM bat manages to hit the ball directly at the lone glove on the opposite side of the infield.
It takes some sort of talent to do that so consistently and not cause the infielder to even have to move.



And then their 112 pound midget hits a seven hopper that never comes near any of the infielders.



... and game over!

I picked a good night to leave the TV off, apparently.
I believe that someday I will punch that arrogant foreman at the plant square on his fat nose; that I will get in the last word with my wife; that I will win the Irish sweepstakes; that the Mets will start a winning streak.

I don't think I've ever bailed on a Met/Yanx game before, but I did tonight.
Oh I checked back here and there, but I just couldn't hang with it for any length of time.

And for a series decided by 2, 1, 2, and 2 runs, none of the games seemed even slightly close.

The GrandySlam really upped my hopes but that's what the Mets do to you sometimes.
Up your hopes and then kick you in the nutz.
