So, here is a fun stat: On their current stat the Mets have scored a total of 32 runs. Only one of them came while Jacob DeGrom was pitching.

They must really hate him.
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?

The Mets and David Wright have scheduled a press conference for 1:45 today. I am predicting it's to name him the next General Manager.

Actually, I think it's going to be to say that he will play in the final home stand of games at the end of the season, and then he's going to retire. At least, I am hoping that's what it is. If he says that he plans to play this season and then show up next April with the intent of taking a spot on the 25 man roster, I'm going to be unhappy. We have enough guys on the roster who can't play. We don't need more.

And so ends the career of David Wright. H'es going to play on September 29th for one last time, and then he says he's not coming back for 2019. I watched and he didn't say that up front. But he was crying and talking about taking the field on the 29th. A reporter had to flat out ask if this meant he was retired and while he couldn't say the "R" word he did say this was it and his body could no longer do it.

thanks for everything, David. I loved watching you play all those years.

I assume that Wright,the Mets and the insurance company finally agreed on a contract settlement?

I assume so but it did not come up. But, I'm sure they negotiated a buy-out.

By the way, there's no crying in baseball. No crying.

Well, there is on the Mets apparently. First Wilmer Flores and now David Wright. He was balling like a teenage girl after her first breakup. He didn't say "retirement" but it was pretty clear that was what was happening. Even after he was specifically asked he didn't use the "R" word but he did say this was it.

I'm glad he gets to come back and play one last time. Nice to be able to walk away like that. Shame the Mets couldn't get it all done in 2015, but what can you do?

OK. This is it. The entire 2018 season has been a build-up to this moment! Red Sox vs Mets!

Mrs psu_dad: zzzZZZzzz

You'll see Thor tonight, Corey Oswalt tomorrow and deGrom on Sunday.

Mets best chance for a win is tonight with Syndergaard. Corey Oswalt is a AAAA pitcher who has looked good at times against medicore teams. The Red Sox are going to feast on him like it's batting practice most likely. For Sunday, I predict deGrom goes 9 innings, strikes out 18 batters, gives up 1 hit and 1 unearned run whereas the Mets offense will have 10 hits, 10 walks, strand 27 base runners over the course of the game, fail to get a single batter across the plate as deGrom loses the game 1 - 0.

Thankfully it's not the Sunday night game. Those games seem to go on forever and you have to listen to ARod for 4 hours. Apparently, the ratings are way down this year.
