This will be the 10th or 11th game I've seen this season but the first deGrom start. Section 516 tonight
Let me tell you something: I have a big set of balls.

Ben Lively (I don't know who that is)


I know that he's a 6' 4" 25 y/o RH rookie, originally drafted by the Reds, who's made 10 ML starts this year including one against us that wound up as a 2-1 Mets
win (thank you JdG) back in late June.

I also know that he's nowhere near as nice to look at as Blake Lively


Aside from that I got nothing.

That's Philly's top prospect J. P. Crawford making his ML debut at 3B tonight: 'Young man we'd like to introduce you to Mr. deGrom'

The touts who follow such stuff started to sour a bit on him this year as his stats more or less plateaued and/or backslid, but he's still just 22.
He's essentially a SS but the Phils are going to have to figure how they want to integrate him into their current roster.

If you've got to play Nimmo, I'm having trouble figuring out why you don't hit that guy leadoff every time.

Because pop-outs to start the game are so much more .... umm, something.

If "Nimmo" is Creole for "Cespedes" and "Lagares" is Creole for "Conforto", I like our chances tonight.

And on that note... leadoff pop-out.

Man, Kim looks like a real bruiser out there in left. Puts me in mind of Luzinski.

Betting on Reyes to pop-out, whether he leads off or not, is like a 50/50 proposition these days.

Not quite.

Lively homers in the 4th.

5-1 not us.

This is not going well.

Luckily, the Phillies are team that we can come back on. But let's not spot them any larger of a lead.

Without a comeback here, that'll make it six losses in the last eight JdG starts.
Prior to that the Mets had won eight straight with deGrom getting the win in all of them.

And Smoker, with one pitch, pretty much puts the game out of reach.

Let's shut down deGrom and send him home.

Before his arm spontaneously combusts.

Yeah, it's time. No home though, grab a clipboard. Look busy and interested.

Did Nimmo just get a low-five and point to the heavens for reaching on a walk in a 9-1 game? Or did he get a hit and I missed it?
