The Orioles blew past the 100 mark and kept right on going - 110 in their sites.

Holy Cow. You weren't kidding. They're practically a lock for 110.

Hey Phillies fans - remember when all you needed to continue your post season dreams was beat the Mets - for a change?

You can't keep using this. I had zero expectation and I'm not surprised by this collapse. I honestly don't care. I still watch here and there but so what

Sure I can. Absolutely.
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?

Last night Jacob deGrom broke a 108 year old MLB record when he pitched his 26th consecutive game where he gave up 3 or fewer runs. He also took the loss and his record stands at 8-9.

And that, in a nutshell, was the Mets season.

That's an absolutely amazing accomplishment. The fact that the Mets cant' score is beyond sad. That's a record that should be getting a LOT more hype than it has.

They actually can score ok, as long as deGrom is not on the mound. When deGrom is on the mound, they can barely swing. And, the bullpen has been a disaster too, so even if he leaves with a lead things quickly go south.

I agree with you that should be getting more attention. I think/hope he shoudl win the Cy Young but we'll see. And, the most amazing thing is a few years ago the Mets had this crop of young arms in the minors and he was the after thought. He surprised them in Vegas and they called him up as a bullpen arm. But, right after he got there they needed a starter to face the Yankees. He was rested, had been starting in Vegas and they figured "what's the worst that can happen?". He went 7 innings, gave up 1 run and struck out 6 (and as a harbinger of things to come, he lost that game 1 - 0). At that point, the Mets figured they HAD to give him a 2nd start. And, the rest is history. He won Rookie of the Year and the pitcher they called up with him, Rafeal Montero, who was called up to start ended up splitting time between the pen and starting and never really working out the way the Mets hoped he would.

They scored 13 last night. God forbid they should score 7 runs one night and 6 the next. :lol:

They are going to be looking for a new GM as soon as the season ends. You should throw your hat into the ring. When they ask what your philosophy is, you can say "I am going to spread the runs out more so rather than score 13 all in one night, we will score 6 one night and 7 the next.".

After that, all you do is count the money from the big payday.

GM is too stressful. And you have to make phone calls all day and have meetings and deal with the manager. Screw that. I want Jeff Wilpon's job.
