From the cold dead hands of the pirates owner.

That Pitt is going to take out Jones this early with him cruising.
GF1080 : 4/16/2024 8:35 pm : link
Yes but Reed Garrett has been a find so far!

Nutting has been better about spending recently (Hayes and Reynolds extensions)
Did something happen to Baty?

No one is sure yet.
Why did PIT  
pjcas18 : 4/16/2024 8:51 pm : link
take Jones out? did the announcers say?

I get if he's on an innings limit, but it really should be a pitch count limit.

Left hamstring tightness. Vientos time?
GF1080 : 4/16/2024 9:02 pm : link
Wow! Huge RBI 2B to tie it.
GF1080 : 4/16/2024 9:09 pm : link
To take the lead!!
nice insurance run from the singles hitter  
Eric on Li : 4/16/2024 9:12 pm : link
the only 2 guys in the linup with an ops over .724 right now are alonso and baty. need more guys to start hitting but hard to not be encouraged by how the rest of things are coming together. pitching, defense, timely hitting.

did anything happen visibly or they just pull him?
narvaez has been a low key solid contributor all year  
Eric on Li : 4/16/2024 9:16 pm : link
taken a lot of good at bats.

holy crap reed garrett - 9 whiffs in 2 innings? i think i had him cut him off the 40 man roster like 5 times this offseason.
vientos 3/5 with a 3b, 4 rbis and 2 hard hit balls at 99mph  
Eric on Li : 4/16/2024 9:18 pm : link
his average exit velocity is 2 mph below what he did in the big leagues and he's still got a 934 ops. so this may be his AAA statline in a cold streak.
another comeback and a winning record  
Eric on Li : 4/16/2024 9:39 pm : link
do they have more late inning rallys this year than all last year already?
The Mets pitching is much better than I thought it would be especially  
Ira : 4/16/2024 9:49 pm : link
after the failure to get Yamamoto and the injury to Senga. The bullpen and the rotation have both been good.
Another series W!!  
GF1080 : 4/16/2024 10:49 pm : link
Baty thing doesn't seem too serious. Garrett, Lopez, and Smith all looked great tonight.
Just saw
