We got one of those leadoff hitters I've heard folks tell about.

How about giving a glove to Flores and DH'ing Cabrera?

Fisher lives up to his name, fishing after strike three.

What did Gary say?


In discussing the partial comeback in Game 1 Gary referenced the time they DID come back from eight runs down -- occurring on this date in history as it turns out -- which he credited Greg
for passing along the info with a plug for FaFiF in the process.
I believe GFaFiF mentioned that game here just recently.

Yeah, I want to hear a good word come out of that clubhouse. That ball drove up into his nose.

Aoki quit on that early, I think.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was a couple of innings before the Mets have their heads remotely in the game.

If we were to get good news coming out of our clubhouse following an injury, would we even recognize it?

You had to figure that was coming after we couldn't get more than one last inning.

Do these guys ever hit it AT someone?
Astros have no XBHs in this game and I can't remember any liners either, so each of the seven hits has been a grounder that found a hole and Lugo has recorded only 2 GOs

Why is our catcher receiving the ball seven feet in front of the plate?
