Robert Gsellman will be Live at 4:05, Throwing Copper at the Nationals, who will be scarred like that. Lightning Crashes all around Gio Gonzalez, courtesy of a unified Met lineup in which nobody says I Alone can fix this. They will be All Over him.

As implicit in lineup, Taijeron, wearing 28, and Reyes are up/back. Ces on DL, McGowan optioned.

No Murphy or Zimmerman for the bad guys.

Won't everyone be confused when they realize that "Rey Rey" isn't Jose Reyes.

Players' weekend is really confusing when you get a lineup full of nicknames for players you don't particularly know in the first place.

That's two games in a row for Zimmerman & Rendon, not quite sure what Dusty is up to with that.

When I hear 'Rey Rey' I immediately think of Ordonez

Zimmerman hurt his hand sliding into home in Houston the other night.

Bad pitching plus two infield grounders NOT turned into outs = ... well pretty much a typical 1st inning as far as the Mets are concerned.

The Nats look like they're back down to four racing Presidents again after briefly expanding to five and then six.
They should get a Trump mock up, but then stage so that at one point in each race he falls flat on his face.

6-2 Nats in the 8th. Flores did homer.

The good news is we're 4-for-7 w/RiSP
The bad news is that only 2 of those 4 hits actually knocked in a run.

This entire game essentially turned in the 1st inning. The Mets fail twice to turn grounders into outs and instead turned one of their own singles into an out.
This is a very different game if that 1st frame plays out differently.

Lugo up, Gsellman down; McGowan back as 26th man.

Sorry, what I meant to say is that the band Live, featured at the top of this thread, is 0-1, as in, the Mets are 0-1 in games featuring an in-game thread kicked off with a Live video.

Live are from the cooby orbit, by the way, having hailed from York, PA.
