Splitting Noah and Matt is bizarre, even by Met standards.

I realize the Mets are playing terribly, and they're to be mocked in everything they do, but I'm not sure what the complaint is here. It seems like a pretty obvious choice.

Might go better if they let Harvey pitch one inning and let Syndergaard finish.

Giving Noah just a single inning is sensible on account of the long layoff.
Starting him then coming in with a replacement rather than the other way around makes sense too since it assures him the optimal warmup time.

I don't see the harm and certainly not the 'bizarre-ness' - particularly not in the final week of a lost season.

Dwight Gooden came back from a shoulder injury in September 1989 and threw two long relief outings, 7 IP in all. Bobby Ojeda returned in September 1987 with three long relief outings totaling nine innings before getting the last home start of the year (which he won, with the Mets hanging on in their quest to repeat). I figured they'd ease Noah back in with something similar. Maybe they have new ideas since then.

Pete hitting 98 in the first and gets the job done on five pitches. Wonder if they'll give him another batter or two.

Gary says 'No' on that second inning question.

Only five pitches although three hard-hit balls: Line-out, Single, GiDP

Best to not push that one too far, even if it's good to dust off temporarily

What do you know? Harv gives back a 3-run lead
Let me tell you something: I have a big set of balls.

Its Ashie's thread title.
Looks like he's the only one who can answer that, because nobody else seems to know.
Mr. Ashie , please pick up the courtesy phone in the lobby.

Later
I'm smarter than you think you are.

I believe 'Pete' is just serving as a generic name for purposes of the subject title.
'One Inning Noah' just doesn't have the same ring.

Except that nobody cares about blown saves except for closers in the 9th inning.
