This is Plawecki's second straight start, no? Anything up with d'Arnaud?

OE - no, Td'A started yesterday, and Gary said he's now splitting starts with Plawecki.

They want to do the things that might help Travis not get hurt at this point of the season.

Plawecki was raking AAA. Mets might want to see him more to get a better idea how/if Rene Rivera needs to be replaced.

Cespy goes kaboom. Good to see him hitting like Cespy again.

Second no-hitter broken up with a solo HR in the last 15 hours or so.
This one was not quite as dramatic as last night's, but we'll take it anyway.

Here's hoping d'Kong recovered the homerun ball. To judge by his photos, there is only a few dozen other folks at the ballpark to compete with him.

Not a bad inning for Montero despite the two runs: legit single, fluke single, misplayed bunt, single up the middle, then a medium Sac Fly w/a weak throw
iow, unlike past outings, Rafael didn't panic, or start to nibble, or go into a shell

And we know he's taller than MetFairy, so he's got a better reach.
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.

Twitter users are saying shoulder dislocation, and you know, that's never good.

We may see Tebow after all.

Gary just confirmed that it's a dislocated left shoulder. So nothing that would stretch into 2018. Gary and Ron speculating on whether he'll be back this season.

Well, I guess Nimmo gets to play everyday.

This injury run is ridiculous.

Cheech = also good.

I think the Mets ought to be more jazzed about all these good young guys we got.

I know Conforto's arm just fell off but Rosie, Dommy, Zimmo and Cheech oughta play
