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.
Great game. Great win. But combined no-hitters just don’t excite me as nuch as when the starter goes the whole way.
Signed to a one-year deal, Aaron Loup (6-0, 0.95 ERA, 1 HR allowed) had a phenomenal 2021. And now, GM or no GM, the Mets need to resign him. He’s already gone on record stating that he loves being in New York and wants to stay a Met, so this shouldn’t be complicated: give the guy a 2 or 3-year deal already, before God forbid the Phillies or someone else in the NL East grabs him up.
Wheeler is at best a No. 3 starter and can be maddenly inconsistent, but damn if I didn’t want to lose him…esp. to a major division rival. Word’s out too that Cole Hamels just a 1-year deal with of course…the Braves. Meanwhile, we’re still waiting on any major deal from the Mets. SMH.
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.
At 34 seconds long, the trot was not only cool to watch, but it was the perfect troll after almost getting hit twice against by Jacob Rhame the previous night. Let’s just hope that with Major League baseball’s obsession with pace pf play, the powers-that-be don’t come up with some stupid rule that regulates the home-run trot.
Harper stays in the NL East so we still have to face him 19 times a year. And by the time this deal ends, Harper will be like 40 and still making $30M a year. Ridiculous.
Once the Mets got Jeurys Familia in addition to Edwin Diaz, you knew right away that the chances of us going after Robertson were nil to none. But damn, if Robertson didn’t have to go to a division rival.
