That was one hell of a comeback attempt in the 9th inning. What’s Paul Sewald so mad about? He sucked while he played for NY. Also, I still hate interleague play.
Be interesting to see what if anything Cano has left getting a chance to play more regularly.
Great start today by Walker. Glad Buck finally sat Escobar down.
Can’t front when Lindor hit that 2-run HR on the 9th to make the game 7-3, my only thought was ‘here he goes again, padding his stats at a time when the game has already been decided instead of when he need him in the clutch’…and boy was I wrong.
While I get that Robinson Cano is far from a sympathetic figure what with all the money he’s making and of course the PED suspension which took him away from the team for an entire year. But if we’re being fair 41 ABs with sparse playing time does not equal a fair assessment on whether or not a player has anything left. And damn, while we all know that Steve Cohen is mage-rich, to just eat $40M like that is kind of insane.
Great game. Great win. But combined no-hitters just don’t excite me as nuch as when the starter goes the whole way.
I agree with Terry here, but also wonder if Nolan was naive enough to think that he wasn’t going to get hit at all judging from his post-game comments.

No wonder no team wanted to sign Conforto this past offseason. Anyone could guess if he’ll stick with Scott Boras as his agent after the ass-backwards advice he gave Conforto when it came to signing deals that were on the table, much less what kind of deal Conforto can get once he’s ready to come back.
The way you see Max Scherzer and Chris Bassist talking to these pitchers on the TV screen, you have to wonder how much effect exactly do they have on a Mets pitching staff that is off to a great start so far.
Great start to the season. But I’m very curious as to why Buck’s been playing Luis Guillorme over Robinson Cano so much of late.
Bullpen is becoming more and more worrisome (esp. Seth Lugo) and I don’t why Buck keeps feeding us Luis Guillermo who can’t hot a lick, but I’ll take another series win.
Tough loss. But like I always say, series wins are what’s most important.
