Syndergaard has a so-so outing, the bullpen didn’t help matters and Conforto and Alonso were nowhere to be found. With 3 weeks left, our wild-card hopes continue to dimmer.
Hey, beating up on losing teams is what you’re supposed to do. Now with the Nationals coming in and 10 or our next 11 series against winning teams, the real fun starts.
The Dodgers are so good that taking a game out of L.A. is good enough for me. I just didn’t want the Mets to get swept. By the way Steven Matz isn’t getting near enough credit for how well he’s pitched so far this year. Take away that one awful start in Philly and the guy’s been an ace.
I know that he came back this year from a major injury. But considering that he was an All-Star last year and is now in his 4th season in the big leagues, a .232/14HR/39RBI line just isn’t cutting it at all. Yet, Conforto continues to get the benefit of the doubt from the press along with a handful of excuses for why he’s struggled all season long. Funny that.
