Jacob deGrom blocks out the Sunday afternoon home woes. Adam Conley shouldn't look directly at No. 48 without protective eyewear.

That does kinda look like what to expect next year,

with healthy starters and a legit bullpen. (Sandy, spend some saved money on the bullpen.)

How did I miss the Marlins signing Shane McGowan as a starting pitcher?

Both Miami runs have been produced by Gordon's wheels.

Gordon's legs may be about to buy the Fish their third run.

6-1 halfway through seven... time to stretch. Watch youtube, it's better than
the dreck that's on SNY this afternoon. Cy Conley 2-hitter and like ten K's.

Hey, Yellich, it's centerfield. There's no side wall, and you don't have to slide.

Kyle Barraclough has done great in his career vs. the Mets, but he walks a lot of folks. Just keep it going, Mets.

Tying run at the plate. LGM, let's make up for all that shit playing you did earlier.
Let me tell you something: I have a big set of balls.

Dominic seems to have a bunch (relatively speaking) of quick -- three or four pitch -- almost 'no contest' strikeouts so far in his ML stint.

Yeah, he and Conforto were golfing at sliders and changes in the dirt all afternoon long.

I guess at this juncture, you want the lefties to get experience against lefties even in particularly over-matching situations, but it's not the sort of thing one wants to watch.

The goat of the day, though, was Rosario, with Smitty and Céspy riding shotgun.
