deGrom Benefits From a Grand-y Night

Back Room Talk Never Looked This Bad

The fallout from the ‎Mets and ‎Brewers debacle on Wednesday night has been lighting up social media. Carlos Gomez and his teammates were literally tweeting happy thoughts and goodbyes from an airplane in the air while Zack Wheeler was shaking his head in Florida about possibly being traded a second time at the trade deadline and ‎Wilmer Flores was put in the unenviable position of not knowing what everyone else in the world seemed to already know, and left hung out to dry for the entire world to see.

Back... Back in the New York Groove?

Last week Jose Reyes made headlines saying that he would love to finish his career with the New York Mets. This coming while he was with his third team since leaving the Mets, having been traded for the face of the Colorado Rockies franchise, Troy Tulowitski, just a couple of weeks ago at the trade deadline.

Harvey Is Harvey

The Mets get another big performance from their starter as ‎Matt Harvey throws eight dominating innings. ‎Juan Lagares has a big game with 3 hits and blows the game open.

The hitting is still not consistent. They have been able to have a big inning here and there but if not for the great starting pitching, they would still be in trouble.

Mets Whiff After Seven Straight

Mets finally lose after winning 7 straight. Not pretty...except for two Curtis Granderson HRs...Mets K'd 15 times & ‪‎Ruben Tejada’s double clutch allows go ahead run. ‪‎Noah Syndergaard had some moments but just didn't have his best stuff and allowed four runs in the first inning.

No Real Comparison

I previously compared the 1969 ‎Mets to the 2015 version. But the three-game sweep by the Pirates is indicative that, other than the starting rotation, there is not much likeness.

The Start of the Move

On August 15, 1969, the Mets began their ascent to the top of the baseball world, coming from 9 1/2 games back and third place, to complete their Cinderella finish and capture the hearts of the city and the world, creating baseball lore that has been referred to in every medium imaginable.

The Mets completed a four-game sweep of the Rockies. The starting rotation continued their dominance and the Mets bats finally exploded.
