    fvck off Matt you worthless fake Alpha Male p*ssy. Don't let it hit you on the way out. Good luck with the Yankees...I'm sure they'll sign you right up this offseason.
  2. New York Mets 2018 season thread

    That's a fvcking joke if true. sh!t, at this rate, might as follow through on Tony LaRussa's experiment of having three guys go 3 IP each each game. Really hate what baseball has become sometimes.
  3. 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    MITB's response pretty much sums it up, but what "minor league" deals are you referring to? Since the end of last season, look at all of the moves Shero made. A lot of them sure as hell weren't minor league, and all of them were solid moves. Shero's two deadline moves made sense. Grabner unfortunately doesn't look like he's going to work out, but it definitely made sense on paper. Maroon's done some nice things since coming here...not like everyone is going to be a good breakaway player. Sounds like complaining for complaining's sake.
  4. New York Mets 2018 season thread

    It's not a full WC swing at least, but it is across multiple time zones. Four against the Braves, three against the Cards, and then three against the Padres. I'm sure the Braves would love to take at least 3 against the Mets...they have to feel pretty good about being only 3 games back. If Calloway's practicing a little tough love with Matz, I can get behind that...accountability was pretty much non-existent with Sandy & Terry (though Terry would feign it at times), and it pretty much always will be with Sandy, so I'm guessing Mickey is trying to instill some of that himself. As much as I hate Reyes the player, I understand Mickey trying to get him going with these PH appearances, but if he keeps racking up the 0-fers, then I'm sorry, he has to become a garbage-time guy soon. Reyes has gotten more chances than he's ever deserved since coming back, and his upside is much lower than it once was. He's also going to be 35 years old in June, and as we all suspected a long time ago, his skillset wasn't going to age well, especially since he never dedicated himself to become a student of the game...Reyes is EXACTLY the kind of player who doesn't find other ways to contribute as his natural and primary abilities start to wane. For some reason the Mets are incapable of seeing that. As far as the starters go, at some point, you gotta start finding ways to get these guys into the 7th inning more consistently...this pen is just being asked to do too much, especially since a lot of them are prone to high-pitch innings.
  5. GAME 4: Tampa Bay @ New Jersey. 730 PM EST, GOLF, MSG+

    There was one time that I was already at work late (around 6:00 pm), and a friend had snagged a ticket last-second and asked me to go, so I went to meet him at a game...unfortunately I didn't have time to go home to get a jersey, and man did that feel flat-out WRONG. Part of the whole experience for me is putting on the jersey...I felt off the whole night without one. I've gotten to the point where I usually throw one on even if I'm just in my basement, watching alone. Why? Better question: WHY THE fvck NOT?! And the bolded is how I remember many Devils crowds looking...sure, a nice percentage of fans wearing jerseys, but many of them not, and several not even wearing anything Devils-related. When I took my seat for Game 3 I was blown away by the amount of red, and sheer numbers of jerseys period.
  6. GAME 4: Tampa Bay @ New Jersey. 730 PM EST, GOLF, MSG+

    And one other note, and something I've really noticed in both Games 3 and 4, I think more so than I ever seen before...the sheer numbers of JERSEYS everyone's wearing. It's awesome to see. Jerseys themselves are still a considerable expense for a lot of people (even the "lower" trim levels), and yeah, there's some bad knockoffs here and there (at least they're still showing their support, and not everyone knows they're wearing a bad fake), but to me it seems like damned near EVERYONE was wearing a jersey last night. Pretty damned cool.
  7. GAME 4: Tampa Bay @ New Jersey. 730 PM EST, GOLF, MSG+

    The officiating was all over the place last night for sure. Very frustrating...but more and more I just come to expect it. 1) I'm glad to see him stopping pucks at an acceptable rate again, and in a playoff series to boot. 2) That was a killer, and of course the refs don't notice it. Because the fvcking refs have a way of missing a hell of a lot. 3) and 4) Good news is that Severson is on a movable contract...the AAV isn't bad and he's cost-fixed. I need to see a lot more out of him next year...he's going to be 24 years old and he now has 279 regular season NHL games under his belt. Start progressing already. 5) Like Tri and others have noted, was definitely not a great night for Maroon in general. 6) Yeah, sucks for him in that the Devils need him to be awesome almost every night. Like Tri pointed out, when Nico and Hall aren't at their best, the Devils look like a much different team. 7) Can't kill Wood, still not much experience and his first go-round in the playoffs. But yeah, didn't notice him much. 8) Yeah, for all the bitching about the officiating, Devils had their share of power plays. They just weren't able to cash in nearly enough.
  8. New York Mets 2018 season thread

    As far as Matz goes...he'd only thrown 74 pitches after four innings, and had retired 10 in a row. Apparently he was furious about being taken out of the game...kinda nice to know that Matz has a pulse. This offense will never be consistent, but they'll have their moments. It's too bad that Frazier isn't a little more talented, because he seems like a real gamer...much more so than Cespedes (who to his credit somehow has 17 RBI despite a pretty lousy start otherwise). As of course, if I could've signed up for a 13-4 start and being 5 games up on the Nats, I'm signing right on the dotted line, every time. Sure, would've been great to win yet another series, but the Nats were ultimately only able to pick up one game on the Mets. 10-game road swing coming up, with one off day, and a stop in San Diego. All things considered, I think I'd be pretty happy with a 5-5 trip...the Mets would come home with an 18-9 record (they'd also finish April with that record). I'm still hoping for 20 wins for the month, but not about to get greedy. May will be a nice "rest some BP arms month"...the Mets have off-days on 5/10, 5/14, and 5/17. They also have an off-days on 4/23 and 4/30. So five off-days in less than a month, which is kind of nice...the Mets play 17 consecutive days from 5/18-6/3, then get another batch of close off-days (6/4, 6/7, and 6/11), before playing another 16 straight days from 6/12-6/27. Then another compressed batch of off-days (6/28, 7/2, and 7/5), before an 11 games-in-10 days burst to close out the first half. In general, it's REALLY nice that the Mets have these little batches of lighter scheduling, and that they're spread out...unless these starters being to find a way to start going consistently deeper into these games, the BP is going to need some rest-up weeks.
  9. GAME 4: Tampa Bay @ New Jersey. 730 PM EST, GOLF, MSG+

    Pretty much agree with all of the above. The crowd could've been better last night...much more subdued overall than Game 3, and in general we have to learn to be a little less "frontrunner"...of course, being pretty solidly off did factor in that somewhat, but we didn't give the team enough energy to feed off. The crowd almost acts as though being down by one is more like being down by 3+. But every seat was filled, and once again, lots and lots of red in the crowd. That alone is a beautiful sight...and I would love to see it one more time, in Game 6.
  10. GAME 4: Tampa Bay @ New Jersey. 730 PM EST, GOLF, MSG+

    Was in 210 for Game 3, will be in 211 for Game 4. Hoping that I'll need to find tix for Game 6. LGD!
  11. New York Mets 2018 season thread

    I know I've said it far too often, but you don't keep letting losers hang around. Reyes is a loser. Pretty much always has been, even when he was younger and putting up much better numbers. Most of his production last season came in pure garbage time. Is anyone other than Sandy all that surprised that Reyes isn't doing a damn thing so far? Hopefully this zilch is gone in a few weeks. These are the guys you have to fvcking move on from eventually. The offense is never going to be consistently good. Last night you saw why, and it's for the same reasons as always under Sandy (too many whiffs, no ability to change their approach with two strikes). But as the team is currently constructed, where is more offense coming from? None of the catchers have really shown much offensive ability, and that includes Plawecki. Until further notice Rosario is a pretty bad hitter (a career .247/.274/.381 slash)...I'm not saying he won't improve in time, but it will probably take a while. Look at the rest of the roster and most of it is pretty flawed at the plate...we're going to see plenty of low hit/low run/high K games, along with the HR-barrage-type performances. Lagares will slow up, Frazier will fall back into the .230-.250 range. This team is currently middle-of-the-pack in the NL in runs scored, and that's about where I would expect them to finish. I can't see them doing much better than that. This team was never built on offense anyway...we know it's all about the pitching with the Mets. And on that front, the starters have to start doing a much better job...they're averaging a tick over 5.5 IP per start, and it's taken Wheeler's arrival to increase that average. Sorry, you can't keep asking a BB-prone bullpen to keep pitching 3-4 innings every night. Agree with your earlier post...for goddamn ONCE Sandy, don't be patient to a fault. Actually show just a little bit of energy and creativity for ONCE and surprise us all by making a good move early. You already blew it by letting d'Arnaud hang around yet another year...now fvcking do something and bring in a real catcher.
  12. New York Mets 2018 season thread

    I can't get that mad about what I was expecting to happen. Nats weren't as bad as their early start suggested, and the Mets weren't as good as theirs. If anything, maybe Sandy wakes up long enough to consider addressing the catching situation, but it's not like he ever operates at a pace faster than glacial.
  13. Hall for the Hart

    I think Hall will obviously accept the C if it's offered to him, but would never actively campaign for it, and I can't see him being comfortable taking it unless everyone (meaning Greene, Hynes and a few select others) was fully on board. Even though Greene's current on-ice play often has us cringing, I agree in that I think his teammates still have a lot of respect for him, and yeah, that includes Hall. This being said, I won't be terribly surprised if Hall's wearing the C next year, and Greene's got an A. If not next year, then definitely the following season (assuming Shero doesn't buy Greene out of his final year). Greene might still be the captain in name, but it's clearly Taylor's team now.
  14. Devils vs. Lightning Series Discussion

    It's really hard to get a read on Johansson going strictly by the numbers, because he was just never able to stay in the lineup for a truly extended period...it's the same reason why it took Palms a while to really get locked in. As far as MoJo goes, I think you throw out this season and hope that he can stay healthy next year, and then we'll be able to better judge what he can bring.
  15. GAME 3: Tampa Bay @ New Jersey. 730 PM EST, CNBC, MSG+

    That's how it goes with Palms (the streakiness...he's now without a goal in his last 7 GP overall, though he does have 4 assists), FWIW he has 9 shots in this series. Hope he snaps out of it soon. When he gets rolling he tends to REALLY get rolling.
