Re: 2018 Baseball Season

You gather wrong. The Mets entered the season with the 12th highest payroll in MLB. Their payroll was more than $40M over the Phillies. The problem isn't spending. The problem is they don't spend wisely. The Wilpons insist on putting money into older players and paying premiums for the wrong skillse...

Atlanta lost, so you've got that going for you.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

6 - 0 after 4.

As big a disaster as this season has been, my one chance for baseball joy is if the Phillies miss the post season because they couldn't beat the Mets.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

Bdub, tonight you can curl up in the fetal position with your thumb in your mouth and watch the Mets get pounded. For at 3 hours you can feel like a kid again... olly olly oxen free That's bold talk for the fan of a team who's gone 2 of the last 4 against one of the worst teams in the league AND go...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I find it difficult to believe how old I've become and how fast it's flown by.....I am disturbed by this.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

You're never going to see a guy with a 163 pitch count again. These guys make too much money to risk their arms like that.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

Jacob DeGrom dominated the Phillies for 9 innings yesterday. That was the 10th complete game this season. I don't mean that was DeGrom's 10th complete game. And, I don't mean it was the Mets 10th complete game. I mean it was the 10th complete game thrown in all of MLB this entire season. It is late ...
