If you ignore all the runs and hits and walks he's given up, Flexen's been very good.
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.

Hard to win games when some of our best hitters are on the Rays, Indians and Brewers. At least we have their closer.

Yeah, we just don't have ours.


Since we last saw the Marlins
- they've been riding Giancarlo's hot streak (he's hit 46 HRs since Tuesday) to a 9-6 record in August and, as a result, are now in 2nd place five full games ahead of us. I suppose that gives us something to shoot for
- 1B Justin Bour in on the DL, as is 3B/NYM-pain-in-ass Martin Prado, and starter Edison Volquez (TJ surgery)
- closing since the AJ Ramos deal has been Brad Ziegler. He has 4 saves in 4 tries since taking on the job with no runs allowed even while allowing hits each time. On the other hand this nice streak only served to lower his ERA down to the mid-5.00's Also, rumor has it that he's recently been offered the job as White House spokesman as apparently the Trump folks mistook him for former Nixon press aide Ron Ziegler but he turned it down figuring that even closing with a 5.50 ERA for the most unstable franchise in baseball while it's in the midst of an ownership change has better job security than trying to explain DJT's tweets with a straight face.
Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.

Tarp is off the field and the game is scheduled to start at 9.
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
