@  yogib8 : (19 Aug 2017 - 13:18)

Cubs, interesting.

Cubs dumped Montero when he blew up at Arrieta and traded for Aviles from the Tigers, then Contreras went on the DL. Reportedly will be out till mid-Sept. A veteran C makes sense especially for a pro-active team

@  yogib8 : (19 Aug 2017 - 13:08)

Happy for Grandy, brought leadership through example and loved the rush of late season baseball

@  yogib8 : (19 Aug 2017 - 13:05)

With all the moves and the downloading of AAA and AA players to Citi...do the players have to wear stickers "Hello my name is_____?

@  brian stark : (19 Aug 2017 - 11:16)

I agree, Dru, I thought Asdrubal would be the first to go, too. Especially when Pedroia got hurt.

@  brian stark : (19 Aug 2017 - 11:15)

Cubs, interesting.

@  Drucifer : (19 Aug 2017 - 11:03)

I figured Cabrera was going one of the easy ones to move. Sandy must have a decent price tag on him.

Cubs Claim Rene Rivera From Mets http://dlvr.it/PgBDKb #mets #mlb

@  brian stark : (19 Aug 2017 - 10:36)

Did they say who Rivera was to go to? I still think Cabrera will end up in Boston.

@  Drucifer : (19 Aug 2017 - 09:10)

Wasn't me, in NYC this week

@  Jambo : (19 Aug 2017 - 06:19)

Just seen someone here in my area in the UK wearing a Mets T Shirt, hope this can bring a wee smile to everyone.

:nightall:

@  Drucifer : (19 Aug 2017 - 01:04)

Reyes is here on the cheap. He's not going anywhere. But Cabrera does look like the last man standing.

@  Drucifer : (19 Aug 2017 - 01:02)

Anthony DiComo‏ @AnthonyDiComo
Sounds like Rene Rivera may soon be on the move in a separate deal, as @CraigMinervini first reported. But don't expect that tonight. #Mets

@  West Coast M... : (19 Aug 2017 - 00:40)

That only leaves Cabrera and Reyes as trade bait

@  West Coast M... : (19 Aug 2017 - 00:39)

A deal to trade Rene Rivera is also reported to be close.

@  brian stark : (18 Aug 2017 - 21:34)

Well, I've been up since 4:30, so I think the top of the 5th will be the end for me...

@  brian stark : (18 Aug 2017 - 21:33)

And no to the sarcastic gold stars, Dru. I expect my players to give their best effort and play smart. If they can't do that, there should be consequences, even if only symbolic.

@  brian stark : (18 Aug 2017 - 21:32)

Cleared the pitcher...

@  abat : (18 Aug 2017 - 21:26)

Resorting to WOR - WiFi not working well enough (and I should really be blacked out.)

@  Drucifer : (18 Aug 2017 - 21:17)

Will you guys be handy out gold stars too?

@  brian stark : (18 Aug 2017 - 21:13)

I'm for that. errors during effort, no. Errors for not paying attention or for poor fundamental play? Absolutely.

@  yogib8 : (18 Aug 2017 - 21:08)

I think I would fine players that made the bonehead plays that meant they weren't following the game and for not hustling.

@  yogib8 : (18 Aug 2017 - 21:01)

This team is playing with 2nd string pitchers including a AA starter tonight

@  yogib8 : (18 Aug 2017 - 21:00)

No fine for errors, but a fine for a bonehead play?

@  brian stark : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:57)

I think I actually would be. I just would hold them accountable. This team gives up WAY too many 0-2 hits.

@  yogib8 : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:55)

I'm guessing that you would not be a players' manager

@  brian stark : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:53)

I swear, I would fine any pitcher who gave up a hard hit on an 0-2 count.

@  Drucifer : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:52)

I'm watching the game in a small screen on DirecTV w/o sounds. So far, it looks like I have missed nothing.

@  yogib8 : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:42)

Mets down 2-0

@  yogib8 : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:41)

You can't get the game? I wouldn't have thought

@  abat : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:40)

Just not back to Citi until Sunday (and Monday)

@  abat : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:39)

Me? In midtown Manhattan

@  yogib8 : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:37)

You are up state?

@  abat : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:36)

Not sure hotel WiFi and/or VPN are up to streaming this. Not back until Sunday

@  yogib8 : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:33)

This pitchers swing so slow, you could blow a change up by him

@  yogib8 : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:30)

Realmuto is a bit more than scrub, if only the Mets....

@  brian stark : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:27)

Well, scrub is harsh, but still...

@  brian stark : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:26)

Dammit, if we are going to get homers hit off us, I'd rather see Stanton hit them than a scrub catcher...

@  yogib8 : (18 Aug 2017 - 20:23)

Game starting 2 hours late, add 3 hour minimum and that is tomorrow

Thanks Drew, but I was content on waiting. Now Giancarlo and Ozuna can each go deep several times

Here comes the grounds crew to pull off the tarp. The crowd is pumped. One guy is riding a tractor which looks kind of fun.

Nothing yet....

Have they given a start time yet?

@  Drucifer : (18 Aug 2017 - 18:42)

Two teams not going anywhere in a ;raindelay; is so exciting.

All four loses were an example of this season - their pitching gave up more runs then the team can score.

that is usually how losses work...and when it is not that; it is generally a case of the offense scoring less runs than the pitching/;defense allows

Both the buyer of my current home and the seller of future are not ready. To be real, neither am I.

Sorry, guys, I had a church meeting. I was here in spirit, though. Got back just in time to see the Grandy man homer. Too bad its too little, too late...

No that was WC PH for brian with the Game = Over

@  METS FANG : (17 Aug 2017 - 19:28)

about to head out of the office, but did they really bat our of order?

@  yogib8 : (17 Aug 2017 - 18:44)

Matz with a 1-2-3 inn.... 4 innings ?

@  yogib8 : (17 Aug 2017 - 18:38)

Some time next Apr. with Judge sitting on 99 straight games with a K, Girardi is going to have him bunt and then pull him to break the streak.

@  yogib8 : (17 Aug 2017 - 18:35)

It wasn't his turn AB, you're out!

@  West Coast M... : (17 Aug 2017 - 18:34)

This team is excruciating to watch even with rooting for the rookies. I was hoping for putting a dent in the Yankees playoff hopes not advancing them. This season cannot end soon enough and there still is a month and a half to go.

@  West Coast M... : (17 Aug 2017 - 18:33)

I'll pinch hit for Brian, "Game=Over"

@  yogib8 : (17 Aug 2017 - 18:31)

Not Matz's best- down 3-0 with a 40 PC ......can he go 3 ?

@  yogib8 : (17 Aug 2017 - 18:30)

This game could be over, but we don't know that yet
