How many more hubcaps can they possibly pop in 15 more games?

Rosario pulled from the game, possibly lame. d'Arnaud also removed. No word yet why.

Not twice, twice without a throw!! 2nd base once and 3rd once.
When he stole 2nd he had such a big jump I thought d'Arnaud was going to throw the ball directly to 3rd just to keep him at 2nd.

I saw the first one. Lugo could have easily stepped off and caught him midway but he gave it no mind.

d'Arnaud: twisted knee.
Rosario: sore hip flexor.

The Cubs offense had had 22 half innings in this series: 8, 8, and 6 times in this game so far.
How many leadoff batters have NYM pitchers retired do you suppose? I'm guessing maybe 5 of 6

Next available potential middle-infield minor league callup is 32-year-old Josh Rodriguez, who is a minor league free agent at the end of the season and is probably already home and planning his retirement.

Behind him is ... Luis Guillorme? L.J. Mazzilli?

It's like a couple of lists go up in the clubhouse each day: one which lists whose turn it is to get hurt that day, and the other which pitchers' turn it is to suck.

Those uncontested stolen bases are so emblematic of the 2017 Mets. They just concede so much.

You know how the league is trying to save time by having the manager hold up four fingers to call for the intentional walk?

Terry should just walk away from the mound after making a pitching change and hold up five fingers -- and have the umpire just go ahead and add five runs on the scoreboard. You know it's going to happen, and it just eliminates more chances for someone else to get hurt.

I just realized that, before the start of yesterday's action, the Mets had a 7.5 game lead over the Phillies with 17 games remaining.

Also, that loss (and the horrible play that ended it) sealed the package on the Mets' elimination.

Cool, now they can start playing the scrubinis!
(I would have guessed mathematical elimination happened long ago)

Yeah, umlauts have failed just as so many things have failed me.

But you'd really never think you could be disappointed by umlauts, of all things.

Mets flew out of Chicago wearing römpers to the last man. Kind of appropriate, I guess, and it beats rookie hazing day.
