The problem with this year's Mets is that in order to win a pennant, you hafta think that you ain't as good as you think you are. Wow!

The closest thing to a starter is Kendrick, who has been filling in in the outfield during Harper's rehabilitation

Just Murphy & Rendon sitting takes 6 or 7 hits out of their lineup vs NYM pitching.

Oh good, getting our butts kicked already and not until tomorrow and Sunday are we forced to face actual major league hitters and pitchers.

Kendrick and Kompany 6, Mets 1.

It's shots like that that keeps one from giving up on d'Arnaud
Off the bat that looked like a line drive which, at best, you were hoping would split the OFs


Mets are only hitting tonight with ticket holders in the booth w/GKR

So, is tonight the night that you give a save chance to Jeurys again, assuming one is available?

Or is it more important to get Ramos back on the horse?

When I saw the Nats' lineup, the first thing that came to mind was "Don't let Adam Lind* beat you". I was going to post it but was late for an appointment.
That dinger was on me.
I hope this isn't too late for the Mets to read.

It's not a good look for the Nats that their trainer seems to have a belly and man-boobs.

And Smoker pitching like a champ too.

Mets showing some heart for the first time in weeks, and Familia returns to the closer role.

Familia on for the save, just like the old days.
