OK

@  Canada Mets Fan : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:43)

No run across?

@  Canada Mets Fan : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:42)

brian, that grandmother line made me snort beer out of my nose.

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:42)

Gotta love that impact bat. POS.

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:40)

Just need a fly ball now, Jay, don't :fbomb: this up...

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:38)

RISP, no out, they have us right where they want us.

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:38)

And if my grand mother had a thinner mustasche, she might have been my grandfather. For most of the season, it's been a one-inning offense.

@  Mr. Magoo : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:37)

Brian, you say business as usual, but the Mets have been scoring runs lately. Also, remove that great play by Ozuna, and it's 4-2. Then don't allow Big Sexy to swing, and there may have been even more runs scored.

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:28)

Other than the little league defensed second inning, it was a nice, quiet outing. For our offense, it's business as usual, one inning with scoring, zilch otherwise.

@  Canada Mets Fan : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:26)

Thanks Magoo. So Big Sexy must be pitching well.

@  Mr. Magoo : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:16)

It's 2-2 going into the bottom of the 7th.

@  Mr. Magoo : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:16)

And Colon takes the pop up himself.

@  Canada Mets Fan : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:11)

I'm not at home, how's the game going?

@  Canada Mets Fan : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:11)

I agree Sax. I have always been a fan of the NL but I'm convinced it's well past time to adopt the DH.

@  Saxon : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:09)

they affect every inning that they come to bat...guys in front of them get pitched around, and if they get on base, it's an automatic out and a rally killer...and then if they get on base, they slow down the leadoff and 2nd hitters

@  Saxon : (31 Aug 2016 - 20:07)

back to the Colon Double Double plays with several guys on base....I absolutely hate watching pitchers hit, unless it's Thor/Matz...no excuse for not having the DH anymore

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 19:48)

Grandy just missed that one.

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 19:39)

He'll never be confused with a MENSA candidate, that's for sure.

@  West Coast M... : (31 Aug 2016 - 19:36)

Twice in the game TC lets Colon hit into a DP. Again, the bat should have been on his shoulder hoping for at best BB or at worst a SO. TC in game strategy just flat out sucks.

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 19:33)

I hope that inning does not bite us in the ass...

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 19:29)

Bases loaded and Big Sexy up. So much for the rally.

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 19:25)

Gotta get hot somewhere, a few bleeders like this and who knows.

@  Saxon : (31 Aug 2016 - 19:21)

for a power hitter, Ozuna is not a bad Center Fielder...

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 19:17)

not a great route taken there by Yo...

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 19:12)

Dang, that was not far from being a two run double to the wall. Nice play from Ozuna, though.

@  Mr. Magoo : (31 Aug 2016 - 19:12)

Wow, Great play by Ozuna to rob Flores. I hate him so much.

@  West Coast M... : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:54)

Saxon at the very least the bat should have been on his shoulder hoping for either a BB or a SO.

@  Saxon : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:54)

I think Colon swung, but then I think he took a nap before leaving homeplate, because there is no way that grounder should have been a DP

@  Saxon : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:53)

best thing for Bruce/Grandy, have them fight for playing time and if 1 of them gets a key hit, then the other guy has to hit to stay playing

@  West Coast M... : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:53)

Did Colon bunt into a DP or did the moron have him hitting?

@  Saxon : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:52)

I can't believe they didn't have Colon bunt....

@  West Coast M... : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:49)

Colon up. Time for a hit and run!

@  Mr. Magoo : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:47)

Travis needs to wake up too.

@  Mr. Magoo : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:46)

And Bruce with a hit. Maybe he's getting it going.

@  Mr. Magoo : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:46)

Flores really starting to hit RHP is huge. He just needed some reps to get used to them. He is an everyday player they're going to need to produce too.

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:45)

Yep, Wilmer sure can't handle the right handed pitchers at all, boy, I tell you.

@  Mr. Magoo : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:45)

Willlll-MAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:41)

good job minimizing the damage after a little league defensive inning.

@  Saxon : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:40)

because I'm sure someone is going to blame Flores for those 2 errors, saying "looney would have had those"...I'm just using the fire extingusher before someone rags on him

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:39)

Saxon, why refer to Flores?

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:38)

OK, Magoo, I see your point, I'm just saying that it might be more realistic to expect 1 of the next two against the Marlins and two of three against the Nats, that's all.

@  Saxon : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:37)

2 bad throws to Flores within a minute or so...neither one was his fault...Bad throw by Colon followed by an ill-advised throw by Reyes (he had no shot, he should have ate the ball)

@  Mr. Magoo : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:34)

I can't believe Keith just referenced the magic loogie.

@  Mr. Magoo : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:33)

Brian, I'm not being overly enthusiastic. I made a simple statement that if the Mets can win the next 5, they'll be in a good position. They've got 16 of their next 24 games against bad teams, and should be able to win at least 12 of those 16 games. If they can, the head to head games against Washington could determine the NL East. Turry needs to manage the shit out of this team, because they have a shot if they hit for the next month.

@  Saxon : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:29)

I saw an article earlier today from mlb.com that said that Lugo's average spin rate on his curve ball is the highest since in the majors since they started tracking spin rate

@  Mr. Magoo : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:28)

Seth Lugo wasn't exactly a top prospect, but he's been very good in the majors.

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:24)

This is a game that looks winnable, against a pitcher making his debut, a pitcher who is not exactly a hot prospect. We usually fare very poorly in those situations.

@  brian stark : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:22)

I'm just saying that it might be wise to temper the enthusiasm a touch. I like what they have been doing, adn I'm optimistic, but I want to keep expectations realistic.

@  Mr. Magoo : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:15)

Lugo has been a better starter than Harvey in 2016. Despite what some people think, this organization is still very deep with young arms.

@  Mr. Magoo : (31 Aug 2016 - 18:13)

Lugo, Montero, and Gsellman have pitched well so far. If Bruce and Granderson can get hot, this team can go on an incredible run.
