Mets rotation/bullpen strategy feels like the definition of rearranging deck chairs on Titanic

The rare hot mic moment that makes me like someone more?

I missed our pig roasting savior

I'm convinced Benitez is going to blow this game.

In these trying times I am grateful for Marcus Stroman's delightful social media presence.

This seems like such a weird thing to be cagey about

Just like the scriptures say: Let he who has not lost $20 million in a wild-boar-related ranch accident explain the ordeal to the media first.

Tbh this is excellent trash talk

Lol the behind the back catch. Would gladly fend off 30-50 feral hogs to protect him.

Yeah but was the burner account Beltran?

The settlement better be that the Mets pay Cespedes more money.

The Mets are seventh in projected WAR on Fangraphs right now. Second in the NL. https://www.fangraphs.com/depthcharts.aspx?position=ALL&teamid=25

I guess the problem with wishing that some rich person will buy your favorite sports team is that some rich person will buy your favorite sports team.

Ah so this Knicks season is going to be a "remember that year when Marcus Morris' PPG was higher than the Knicks win total?"

Really enjoying Joe Buck implying that call was so bad it might actually kill Davey Martinez.

300 home runs in a season is amazing. Only nine lineup spots, so that's 33~ homers per spot. The Yankees only had two players actually hit 33 or more home runs.

Jeff Francoeur talking about spin rate on national television feels like a fever dream.

Whatever the 07-12 Phillies had, the Nationals clearly do not because I'm . . . happy for them? I have no ill will toward them?

I cannot believe Hansel Robles, of all people, is thriving in the juiced ball era.

So I guess the only remaining question is whether Alonso can hit 20 more home runs tonight and tomorrow.
