I don't know what's weirder, Juan Lagares randomly being good or Juan Lagares randomly being the worst player in baseball for four months.

Feels like this happened overnight: deGrom is sixth in WAR with the Mets.

Why is Familia wearing the wrong hat?

I do not like watching the Mets play the Royals.

The Mets having five relievers on their 40-man roster with career ERAs over 7.50 seems ... not great.

This is how characters consistently hold phones in "Mary Worth."

Tejada and Rosario on the same infield feels like an anachronism. Tejada should only be allowed on camera with Matz, deGrom, Syndergaard, Conforto and Lagares.

🎶Ruben Tejada. What a wonderful phrase. Ruben Tejada. Ain't no passing craze.🎶

What's it like to be Mickey Callaway right now? Do you think he's like "yeah, I'm doing such a great job?" Or is he secretly wrestling to figure out why God wants him to remain the manager of the Mets?

I want Don Smith to heal, obviously, but I also want him on that scooter forever.

The most amazing part of this Mets run is that they've done it with one reliever.

Weird how similar Syndergaard and Wheeler's totals are this season:
Syndergaard: 141.0 IP 132H 68R 14HR 38BB 140K 3.44 FIP
Wheeler: 139.1 IP 135H 70R 17HR 35BB 149K 3.44 FIP

Watching Guillorme and Hechavarria is making me wonder whether the Mets have had a good fielding everyday infielder in my lifetime.

The Mets are going to play meaningful games against the Nationals this weekend? These Mets?

Best Mets deadline move might be sticking a team they're chasing with Jason Vargas.

Seems like the Mets have to trade a SP before the deadline, if only to avoid sticking Matz or Vargas in the bullpen.

Gotta give it to BVW in that his (bad?) moves are at least galaxy brain creative.
