Reyes just shut down that "run" to 1st awfully early for a semi-tough backhand play by the 2Bman.
Someone needs to remind him that he doesn't have a job for next year as things stand and that maybe he needs to play like he's fighting for one.

Howie tells me I was a little premature with the official game business. Now it's official.

Yes, losing team has to bat at least five times.

I'm sure Randazzo called that early on the radio. I was just passing it on. Howie didn't correct him or anything. He just let it go by and brought it up again in the next half.

Good outing for Gsellman so far. More please.....

6-0 Mets

There could be room for Gman next season if he can grab it.

Shit.

6-3 Mets.

I like Gsellman. I liked him a lot more last season tho.

That inning was a little bit of a corker. The first guy reached on a wet-ball error. Then the double over Nimmo's head had him going back at a speed that suggested he wasn't confident in his traction.

A homer is a homer, but he finished strong in pissy weather and I'm OK with that.

Maybe a taste of the minors got Gsellie a little more focused.

In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, "I have finished." There is a lot of satisfaction in that - Fred Lebow
