Im not going to be able to post as much as I used to guys due to some career-altering decisions so some other posters might have to start game day threads if they so choose. Mets up 1-0.

Should have been a 2 run double but Ump ruled a Ground Rule double because it basically went under the Ball Boys stool. I didn't have that big an issue with the call though.
Jake looks good hope he can give a really positive outing.
Bruce appears to be in one of his epic slumps. I think he was 2 for 20 or so on the road trip and a quick o for 2 tonight.
Luckily Walker and others have perked up. It'll be humorous to watch the fan base turn on Bruce after a couple weeks of this.

I'll be one of them
he's got nice giddyup on his FB tonight and he's commanding it. Keep it going!
On whatever path you are choosing - I'm sure it was a wise decision, and success will follow. But I don't buy for a second that you'll be around her any less...

You're probably right. lol. Once things settle down Im sure Ill ease back in. haha. And thanks man!
just blowing them away. Fingers crossed...
and it's totally getting to him. JFC.
go get deGrom when he's clearly having an issue. Like I said, every tendency Collins has seems to be the wrong one.
Cant believe we got out of that. Circus play by Reyes.
really have to give some credit to Terry for giving him a chance to get out of it. I mean really, who are you bringing in who gets out of a bases loaded no out jam?
And Conforto goes BOOM!
He wouldn't stop looking at his finger. Nobody even went out and checked on him. He couldn't find the strike zone and loaded the bases. Everyone in the booth said "you gotta go get him". We got out of it and it worked out but it still drives me crazy.
Is a no doubt, major league plus pitch

He's got a bit of a funky delivery too. I like him. Now please God get Edgin and Montero out of the pen and call up Smoker again.
Neil Ramirez has me slightly intrigued. He's still young, throws hard, and has a nice k/9. Not saying he'll be great but he's worth trying at least.
Front page of espn yesterday highlighting stuff exactly like we saw. Yea it worked out tonight but 9/10 it doesn't. Furthermore blister or whatever. Like get worst and could hurt next start. TC habitually lacks the ability to consider long term ramifications like this.
Hey, we won a game!
This season has fucking sucked so far, but god damn.. Conforto is for real. If Rosario winds up being as good as he looks like he can be right now and Dom Smith pans out... those 3 guys are going to be a fun nucleus to watch to go along with Cespedes (if he can just fucking stay healthy)
Would be amazing if Matz and Lugo could avoid hitting the DL again when they come back - but of course, I can't do anything but expect that they will.
He got fired, ironically as TC passed a Mets milestone. Love irony.
But.. Backman yells and screams and holds people accountable!
accountable. Seems to work for TC, lol.
In any event, Backman was a loon anyway.
Guess I can enjoy the rest of the afternoon now.
Leaving the hotel for my son's graduation. Guess I don't have to worry about monitoring the rest of the game.
need to play everyday.
I don't think it's impossible that an infield of Rivera, Flores, Rosario and Smith, along with a healthier pitching staff, lead us on a wild card run.
