Ack! Corbin is good. Milone? Not so much.

Conforto is being scratched due to a thumb issue.

And they put Matt Reynolds in right field?

What happened to Zimmo?

Eaten by bears. Should miss 5-7 days.
I believe that someday I will punch that arrogant foreman at the plant square on his fat nose; that I will get in the last word with my wife; that I will win the Irish sweepstakes; that the Mets will start a winning streak.

Well, so much for the getting-guys-on-base-and-then-hitting-the-ball-real-hard strategy.

I think it's quite possible, I might even go to probable, that the Mets won't score another run for the remainder of the season.
Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.

I am almost surprised people pay to watch this crap.

This is low entertainment.

Looks like they scored a run.

Are there any other alternatives to Mayday Millone? This season is completely in the handbasket.

There you go. Rosario.

He and Smith are totally getting with the some-homers-but-no-other-offensive-value act the Mets have going on, guys!

Relax! Chris Flexen's turn is coming.

Corbin puts down a fine bunt. Robles fields it half-assed, and throws it half-assed, but that's fine, because Corbin is running half-assed.

I know, intellectually, I've seen this brand of consistently mailed-in-effort baseball before, but it feels like nothing I've ever seen.

Rosario is not mailing it in. He's been playing like he wants to set an example for the veterans.
I'm impressed.

damn. so close to getting Conforto to the plate as tying run.
