  1. I loved Thorne as the Devils guy and Mets. Always had a ton of enthusiasm and made the games sound bigger. He's 70+ now so I really don't know if he'll be quite the same...but looking forward to it. I loved him doing hockey. Don't care how many names he got wrong he had tremendous passion and a powerful voice
  2. Honestly I mean yes it is making him historically dominant. But he's also a human being and how long can he keep throwing like this? Is a human arm meant to undergo this kind of strain so often. I'd rather a slightly more hittable deGrom give us 4-5 more great years than deGrom have a legendary pitching season and decimate his arm.
  3. Right shoulder soreness. He shouldve been shut down for two starts. How stupid can they be?
  4. Braves I always fear. They've really been underwhelming this year but are still hanging around and are capable of ripping off 11 wins in 13 type stretches. I just hope Morton, Smyly, and Fried (who was spectacular last year in 11 starts) continue stinking up the joint Phillies strike me as a typical middle rung team. Tease you a bit, and finish 81-81
  5. A very pleasant surprise. And today it looked like things could unravel early. He got out of the first, shook off the Baez home run a bit later and settled in. Showed some mental toughness.
  6. Diaz is one of those You Know Right Away closer when he doesn't have it. There are guys who get an out, get 2 outs, or a booted ball and then the unraveling starts. Diaz is a guy who if he doesn't have it you will see from the first batter he faces. I'm definitely one of those guys not averse to pulling a closer before it's too late.
  7. This isn't the first NJDevs message board. I believe it's the...3rd? Some here come from NJ.com New Jersey Devils, and nobody is ever finding those posts from 98-99
  8. Alright we got some life out of Dom. Home run and a 2 out RBI tonight so far. And Peterson actually pitching well so far!
  9. Not a Lucchesi fan and was worried things could crumble early, but to his credit he totally settled in (and even if things did fall apart how could I argue with today after the last two nights) Familia in some big trouble here. Got through it last inning...not sure he'll be so lucky here They're still just...they're not hitting at all but they're getting just enough offense at the right times. Feels like the Mets for the first time in forever are getting quite lucky more often than not.
  10. It would be too Metsian to blow the game too...at least they salvaged the night with a W. I'm sure he'll miss AT LEAST two starts. Hopefully not more.
  11. ugh. Of course. Nice Birthday present for Mr. Cohen from the baseball Gods. Things were going just a little too good for the Mets of late, and of course that cannot be allowed to continue Hopefully not serious, he was rolling toight.
  12. Alonso does have a propensity to chirp a bit from time to time, but honestly I kind of believe him on this one. Concrete proof of it will be mighty difficult though (if not impossible)
  13. Interesting little not, the Mets (though they have played the fewest games in baseball) Met pitchers have surrendered the fewest home runs in the league. A mere 38. The closest team to them is the Marlins with 47 in 7 more games played Also 2nd only to SD in staff ERA
  14. Getting real tired of Peterson. Can't get smacked around by the bottom feeding Orioles like this after being spotted a 2-0 lead. Especially after two nice wins out west. He's not long for this rotation. Someday I think he may be ok...but as of now he's hurting the team. Mets may need to slug their way out of this one.
  15. Added a HR last night...and a double. Though he also added 3 K's. Him busting out and playing like the top 15 MVP vote getter we know he can be would make a world of difference. Also time for Alonso to start hitting HR's again. I worry this wrist issue may be a season long thing...and sap his power
  16. There are really no more words to describe deGrom anymore. This is a legendary season. An all time great (in sports history) performance thus far. There's a lot of season left and I can't possibly imagine he can sustain this...but somehow, some way he keeps getting more and more dominant (at nearly 33 mind you...I wonder how much he has left...though I don't think his arm has nearly as many miles on it as other pitchers his age of all abilities) They needed a win last night in the worst way, with what is still a ragtag lineup, and deGrom totally snuffed out a very good team on a road, where the home team hadn't lost in forever. That's special.
  17. Guess all Snell needed to see was this pathetic excuse for an offense to get back on track. Try not to get no hit boys Cant really get too mad at the team as a whole but this is really anemic looking sometimes
  18. That was a rough one last night. Still can't recognize half the roster...down 4-0 to SD on the road. They battled to 4-3...runners on in the 9th and the rally died in typical heartbreaking Mets fashion. But for what they got, this team fights
  19. What the Mets have been able to do with this kind of makeshift lineup....it's very impressive. And on top of that with a dullard manager who is in over his head. This is the kind of stuff we'd laud other teams for every year when some blah lineup walks into Citi and takes a key 2 of 3 FROM the Mets. Not letting the injuries get to them. Seeing this more as adversity to be conquered rather than adversity destined to trample you We have lot to be grateful for in this Failure to Launch of a division as well Good to see Alonso with a big hit last night...we're gonna need to see more of the long ball from him as well as the season progresses
  20. It's astounding how many games behind the Mets are some of these teams. What are we like 9 or 10 behind the Dbacks. Covid...delays, the crunch the Mets will have to go through to even things up will be brutal
  21. Atlanta with a 20-1 massacre over Pitt last night...I really hope they don't take off while we're hobbling around. They're still a good 3 games below .500 though
  22. Something about this building...it's not Turner Field but the Mets have had some bizarre gutwrenching impossible losses to some awful Marlins teams here. need to close it out
  23. Chris Drury of Little League World Series Fame? Might as well be?
  24. deGrom (in a single A rehab start) hits 102 and strikes out 8 in 3 innings. Outstanding sign....hopefully this doesn't flare up again
