Three Jakes, A Loogy, And A Luis Sojo

By: metstradamus | August 17, 2019 The latest “biggest game of the year” saw Jacob Junis (I guess he wants to be called “Jake” now) match the stellar Jacob deGrom inning for inning through six. deGrom was lights out for the first six innings, and he wasn’t fooling around with the top of the order, and Jorge Soler in particular. Didn’t matter who the Royals sent up … deGrom was mowing them down as he gave up just one run in the fourth on an error by Pete Alonso. (Don’t worry, there’s a happy ending for him.) deGrom was...

The Greased Pigs Had It Easy By Comparison

By: metstradamus | August 17, 2019 It’s hard to sweep teams … whether they’re from Kansas City or not. If there was a game I was worried about, it was tonight. Mike Montgomery is a tough lefty, as all lefties are tough when you get to August. The Mets had a late trip in, because Atlanta doesn’t do weekday getaway games. Someone noted that the Braves don’t play day games on getaway days, at least for the visiting team. Weekday games interfere with the neighborhood office-worker lunch-hour trade at the restaurants in the Battery. — Jeff Ofgang (@jeffnews) August...

The Worst Way

By: metstradamus | August 16, 2019 The Mets needed this one in the worst way. And they got it. Also, in the worst way. Well, almost. Maybe winning a game where your star player is lost to injury for six months would be the worst way to get a win. But winning a game where your bullpen turns a 10-3 eighth inning lead into a game where the tying run comes to the plate is really the worst way to win a game which causes bodily harm. But … and this is important … they won. The need for...

The Ballad Of Handsome Art Howe

By: metstradamus | August 15, 2019 Hang down your head, Mickey CallawayHang down your head and cry (ah-uh-eye)Hang down your head, Mickey CallawayPoor boy, your career is bound to die Here are the problems with this move … the move to take out Matz after six innings and bring in Seth Lugo for the seventh, which preceded Lugo’s implosion in the 7th. I had a feeling he made the move just for the reasons he stated: Matz was running around the bases, and he had a tough righty leading off the 7th in Josh Donaldson. I get it. But...

8/14/2019 Game Preview: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

By: metstradamus | August 14, 2019 The streak is now at two, and unfortunately it’s two losses. And more unfortunately, Jeff McNeil’s MRI shows actual squirrels biting his hamstrings. He’s headed for the injured list and Ruben Tejada is making his Mets return. Yay, nostalgia. #Mets officials believe it’s likely Jeff McNeil will need to be placed on the injured list due to injured left hamstring, but they’re waiting for MRI confirmation this afternoon, source says. Ruben Tejada is the likely callup, per @JonHeyman. @MLBNetwork @MLB — Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) August 14, 2019 Thankfully, the squirrels took it easy...

Jeff McNeil Heads To IL, Paving Way For Reunion

By: metstradamus | August 14, 2019 The good news is that Jeff McNeil’s hamstring injury should only have him miss the minimum amount of time. The other news is that taking his place for ten days is somebody you’ve heard of: Jeff McNeil is headed to the IL with what was termed as a mild left hamstring strain. Ruben Tejada will be activated. — Mike Puma (@NYPost_Mets) August 14, 2019 Tejada was hitting .330 in Syracuse, so he’s certainly earned a look. I wonder if Dilson Herrera would have been a better play as he has played a little...

Well You Got ONE Squirrel To Stop Being Aggressive

By: metstradamus | August 13, 2019 I knew it was a bad omen when I read this today: Squirrels in New York City are on the attack, biting the hand that feeds them. Officials are warning families to stop feeding the animals, especially in Battery Park City. They’ll watch, stalk and then suddenly strike. The squirrels in Rockefeller Park will attack anyone and anything when it comes to stealing food. Well I hope you’re happy. You angered the goddamned squirrels. And guess who was the first squirrel to be affected? That’s right! Jeff F***ing McNeil. You’ve angered the squirrels...

Streaks Are No Match For Slop And Superstition

By: metstradamus | August 11, 2019 Soaring with every win means paddle boarding in the mud with every loss. Today, we paddle board in the mud. And that in itself is okay. The Mets took two out of three from the Nationals, keeping themselves on the road map that I had set for them back on August 1st. At 61-57, they’re a game and a half back of Washington for the first wild card spot, and while they missed an opportunity to leapfrog over Milwaukee (who lost) and St. Louis (who are losing by four right now), the Mets...

8/11/2019 Game Preview: Washington Nationals at New York Mets

By: metstradamus | August 11, 2019 Can the New York Mets pull off another heart stopping victory over the Washington Nationals? Well I’m sure they’ll settle for a nice, run of the mill victory as they go for the series sweep at Citi Field in a Sunday afternoon tilt to try to move into a playoff position. All fans are supposed to receive a pack of baseball cards to commemorate National Baseball Card Day. If I were you though, I’d still get there early because those Jacob deGrom t-shirts were supposed to be for all fans on Friday, except...
