My stupid iPhone won’t let me link it, but there is a funny article on The Onion about the Norfolk Tides sending a third baseman to Baltimore for a rehab assignment.

18!!!

That's 5 multi-run leads in a row blown by the Mets pen in addition to the 18 blown leads in June. And, they have 3 games vs. the Braves before the month is over so I'm sure things are about to turn around. :roll:

This is historically awful.

I don't know why, but I thought this was funny. Not the statue. The cat.

You think that was funny? Check out what Francesa had to say about the Mets latest meltdown.

When you're not sure how to feel about your team, be thankful for Mike Francesa to help you along.

Not just fire - put them on a bus and drive them south.

Actually, I'm sort of on board with this. Maybe not for all of them but the bullpen should be driven somewhere - preferably over a cliff. Btw, Edwi Diaz was the centerpiece of that trade that brought Cano over. He's the primary reason they were willing to give up two former 1st round picks and top prospects and eat all that Cano contract money. And, he sucks. I mean he really, really sucks. In 2018 he was the best reliever in the AL. In 2019 he's a AAA pitcher masquarading as a Big Leaguer.

It seems like the Mets and Knicks are becoming the wicked step children in baseball and basketball. The Knicks were primed to snag 1-3 huge free agents in basketball and that is probably not going to happen. Instead, the free agents would rather head to Brooklyn. The owner of the Knicks (James Dolan) is an idiot. He had a run in with Charles Oakley and it wouldn't surprise me if that run in has something to do with players not wanting to play with the Knicks

And then you have the Mets! Somehow the Yanks get FA but the Mets don't. The owners seem like they don't have any direction, core values, or a plan. Last, they field a bunch of pansies. I heard someone in their front office stubbed their toe walking to the water cooler! He was sent home and told to take the rest of the week off!

Evidentally London is a hitters climate. Redsox - Yankees are sitting at 8 - 6 after 3.

Btw, Rick Porcello clearly can't hold his bitters juding by how he made it through a whole third of an inning today.

I haven't watched 2 seconds of it and don't intend to. The entire season has been a large Bucket of Aggravation. I'm not going to let them futz with my blood pressure. I'm heading back outside.

I'm in a bar drinking a beer, catching up on work, and the Yankees - Red Sox are on in the background. I couldn't be more relaxed (except for the work stuff)

My BP doesn't go up until the Mets take the field at 4.
