That wouldn't take much.


One good thing is that the Mets almost certainly beat Miami to Miami last night as the Marlins got a later start and had a longer flight in returning home from their home series in Milwaukee.

I heard that Rosario ate a bad meal late last night at the Spanish food joint that Duaner Sanchez never reached due to his cab wreck -- so at least it's just a bad stomach and not a busted up shoulder.

Add Harvey to the list of Mets disinterested in holding runners on.

I recall not that many years ago a WATP thread where most(?) of us balked at a Harvey for Stanton swap

Bringing in Robles with runners on base is cruel at this point.

The Marlins BABiP tonight is just shy of .600 (16 for 27)
I mean they're smacking the shit out of the ball now, but these "real" hits are just on top of all the bleeders and seeing eye hits that they were piling up earlier.

We'd do better with Adam Wilk out there.
Let me tell you something: I have a big set of balls.

Yeah, show me the thread as we work on this all-swinging-bunt 11-run rally.

Or a game-ending double-play, giving Vance Worley the save in a 12-run game.

Seems these days the Mets play two kinds of games:

1) They score a couple of runs early, there's a decent enough starting performance and the bullpen either makes it close late or blows it.

2) They don't score early and they gradually fall further and further behind as the game progresses.
Only in today's America can policy be based on the notion that the rich have too little and the poor have too much.

Resistance is not futile. https://www.indivisibleguide.com/indivisible-action
