Flexen holds 'em to 1 run on 30 pitches in the first. I guess that's something.

Based on our season's average of 0.87 runs allowed per/1st inning, it's pretty close to the norm for this year.
Last year's 1st inning average for the entire season, 0.40, was less than half what it is this season

Folks can question Terry on his lineup choices or his bullpen management, but those stats are purely the results of that night's starter and therefore essentially out of his hands.

Zimmo totally makes this team go. I don't understand why they look at him as though he's some kind of limited player at the same time they apprar ready to gamble on Smith developing enough first base power to succeed Doodoo
Let me tell you something: I have a big set of balls.

Wrong Gary. Dennis Martinez has the most wins for any Latin pitcher but not foreign born.
Rik Aalbert Blyleven of Zeist, Netherlands = 287, 42 more than 'El Presidente'

He's got some rough edges on his game, but nothing that can't be sanded off if they show some commitment.

It's philosophically a big problem with this organization. They give lip service to on-base percentage, but they don't commit to the players who give it to them.

Two infield grounders by Wilmer tonight which 90% of ML'ers turn into singles.
Wilmer was out by a wide margin both times.

I never would have sent the runner on that play. Heck, I might not have sent Dee Gordon, but great job by Lagares.

Are the umps wearing wrist bands again? This time gray?

And he's doing it playing his game.

I think we're finally in the position where he's the manager's first choice for leadoff hitter. It's a step forward that's overdue.

Nothing spectacular, just consistently hitting and walking and running, y'know, the kinds of things the rest of our lineup hasn't been doing a lot of lately ... or all year for that matter.

He walked to load the bases.

Would have been nice if Cabrera got the bat off his shoulder as the next batter.

Great stop by Smith. Blevvy fails to cover first. Come on, 2017 Mets! Your head-out-of-game-ness has reached critical mass.

Crap footwork by Rosario, too, but I guess he had given up on the throw by then.

Sewald shutting down Schmidty like he wants to be part of the future.

Part of NIMMO's future.

Oh, I see now. 3 walks and a double (1 fer 1). Nope, they can't stop him.
