The count is incorrectly correct at 1-1

What is with these random zoom ins tonight lol


1005thArmbar

intentionally walk Escobar, Ruf fucking fucks with the Mets


PM_ME_UR_GLOVES

I feel like they are pumping crowd noise in


lupin43

Get loud, routine fly ball to center!!!


Bersho

lmao that ball was absolutely crushed... can't be putting 93 middle-middle on the Polar Bear...


rotallytad

Just knew that shit was coming. Anyway Ian happ has a 4.0 WAR Kyle Shwarber: 1.0


MaveInfinite

What’s wrong with having both Happ & Kyle on the team?


rotallytad

2 left fielders would b nice but they ruined the shift


MaveInfinite

So one of them can’t be DH?


rotallytad

I mean sure. But Willy/Reyes hopefully will be that next year


MaveInfinite

Willy should be our main catcher and Kyle would’ve been the perfect DH. But he’s gone so it is what it is.


rotallytad

Huh? Willson is/was having his best year since Gomes is actually backing him up


MaveInfinite

maybe, but I will always be team Schwarber. Ian is nice but he always heats up in Sept


rotallytad

Fair


MaveInfinite

like I said, we had/have the money for both.


elgenie

It's a bit closer by fWAR, but Happ has been the better player offensively and (by a ton) defensively and on the bases.


1005thArmbar

that's fine


Aura_Masta420

That's fine indeed :D


Hope4years

Well, glad nobody was on base and I’m glad he didn’t homer off of Sampson


elgenie

Hughes is going to need to work on his gopher-ball problem next season. 11 dongs in 51 innings is a ton for a guy auditioning to be a late inning option.


Aura_Masta420

\*Ahem 2019 & 2020 Kimbrel\*


lupin43

Happ is an ~~all star~~ Gold Glover


Hope4years

I’ll say it again: I love Ian Happ


lupin43

In other news, the twins have a combined no no through eight against the royals. I do like a good no no


weezermc78

Hot take. Marvel needs to take a decade long break. All this super hero shit is getting old


MaveInfinite

It won’t happen..lol will keep on paying to see them just like Wrigley will be packed every game..just like Madden will have top sales..it’s just the way it is.


1005thArmbar

i will die on this hill with you. it's pretty bad


lupin43

Eh im still enjoying it fine. I’d just stop if I stopped enjoying it


MaveInfinite

I hope for these superhero movies to die down and want love to see the return of little indie comedies. I know both don’t have anything to do with each other..but still.

McKinstry blows

Happy Birthday to the Cutest Cub, Alfonso Rivas <3


PM_ME_UR_GLOVES

Death by a thousand bunts


slinkyfarm

Wisdom got lucky. Happ would have been out by five feet if McCann hadn't left the back door wide open. He was in no position to make a tag.


PM_ME_UR_GLOVES

Oh, there was definitely a lot of luck involved in all of that.


lupin43

Good bunt there Rivas. We will single-handedly raise the league wide bunt totals


kyhansen1509

More bunts! More bunts! More bunts!


rotallytad

What’s the cubs obp? On bunt %


malepitt

In general, a bunch of stuff has to go wrong for a C to get a SB. Coomer: "It goes in the stat book. I haven't thrown any of mine away."


weezermc78

Rivas looks like Mac from always sunny


1005thArmbar

exploiting their bunt weakness, h*ck yeah


lupin43

Play the game Yan!


-_butters_-

Yan "Ricky Henderson" Gomes


Hope4years

LOL


Riderz__of_Brohan

They shouldn’t do that trumpet thing when they’re losing or it’s not a close game


1005thArmbar

as a mariners guy on the side i can tell you that Diaz is way better in save situations than not. we might score off of him here


rotallytad

Taylor v ms. Met Vote below


weezermc78

Ms met because she thicc


rotallytad

Wrong Elise menaker is the correct answer


HHHU03

All that hype just to pitch around yan and give up a hit💀


1005thArmbar

i want to fuck mrs met


weezermc78

God that's one fantastic walk in song. So intimidating


MaveInfinite

Damn, Ms. Met is looking kinda thicc for a baseball..


HHHU03

it’s so funny to see mets saying the season is over when we’ve been enduring this suffering for the season


lupin43

Especially when they essentially have a playoff spot already locked up


HHHU03

seriously lmao I just don’t understand it


rotallytad

My god. Ruker/Hughes no runs? Is this the real life or is this just fantasy


malepitt

caught in a landslide


sandrakarr

... we need a gif of that pitch and Lindor's face pls. If it at *least* doesn't show up in highlights ill be sad.


lupin43

Hughes


Hope4years

Thanks Hughes!


Aura_Masta420

ROCK ON HUGHES


Aura_Masta420

Don't give Lindor any fast meaties in the middle of the strike zone.


malepitt

COOMER: Rossi's like, "We were facing deGrom in this game and we're up 4-0 in the eighth, \*we are going after this win\*


mt77932

I have a feeling the entire city of Atlanta is rooting for us right now.


Riderz__of_Brohan

Just FYI betting wise this would be the biggest upset win in the last decade or so for the Cubs if the leaky bullpen can hold on


rotallytad

Get rucker out now ROSS


Aura_Masta420

Hey. He did good. Gotten us an out, and now we have a semi-good closure/saver. Now let's win this damn series Cubs!


lupin43

That feels like an incredible waste of lobster


elgenie

Early in American history lobster was considered a trash food only fit to be fed to prisoners and the desperately poor. There are letters from inmates complaining about how often they were being cruelly plied with lobster.


rotallytad

“Early in American history” is always a prelude to sum dumb ass shit.


elgenie

“In American history” also usually has a similar effect


rotallytad

“Right now in American history”


lupin43

Yes I know and that’s not how it’s considered anymore


malepitt

The instant Happ popped out, a loud, "FUCK!!" could be heard on the radio broadcast, and I have to assume that was probably Ian.


Aura_Masta420

Ian happ: "FUCK!"


elgenie

It was. All the hitters' f-bombs are coming through loud and clear on TV as well.


rotallytad

Mets don’t want none. That is all


elgenie

"Fiddlesticks!" ~ Ian Happ, per Boog, presumably


Spectre211286

the field mics are really picking up all the Fucks today


lupin43

Aww dang - Happ


-_butters_-

Happ also said "darn"


SpawnJetpack

Ian “FUCK!” Happ


PM_ME_UR_GLOVES

Too patient


lupin43

Play the game Seiya!


elgenie

The Cub with the best chance to get a bat to the pitch was Ian Happ, still on deck Franmil hitting the deck on the 2-0 pitch outside was a nice troll.


rotallytad

Mets pitchers are dangerous and should be suspended for the life of their contract


1005thArmbar

what the hell


lupin43

Anyway you can get it Seiya


Hope4years

I’m so glad Seiya got on base; he’s had another night of bad ump calls


elgenie

The consecutive games streak being broken might perhaps be the *least* interesting streak to witness from a spectator standpoint, and almost by definition requires a dude to worsen his team's chances in quite a few games.


Parchabble

The bottom line though is that no one will ever get there again. These days, everyone has scheduled days off, but young guys rarely break into the big leagues as full time players. That's one that you don't realize how unique it is until deep into the players career and players will never get the opportunity to get there.

rotallytad

The rucker, bote, Rivas combo is unstoppable.


Parchabble

I think 300 game winners and stolen bases are going to be tough to get to in the future, but one I don't think is ever going away... Taylor just got it. Consecutive games played is never going to be broken


lupin43

Aww dang - vogelbach


-_butters_-

Sampson > deGrom, don't @ me


elgenie

Vogelbach: **FUUUUCK!** Boog: … popped in the air, Vogelbach says ^"darn"


poundfourpound

I don’t understand baseball.


malepitt

2 teams, 54 outs, 18 players, 9 innings, 4 bases, 4 umps, 90 feet, 60 feet 6 inches, 30 teams, 750 players, 176 years of history, what's so confusing?

Boat way to go!


-_butters_-

##Bote McBoteface!


malepitt

Coomer tells a great story about Alonso's near HR in the 1st, followed by a BB, and a burst of anger from Alonso, which may have spurred Sampson to his good evening.


golden_sombreros

David Bote slander will not be tolerated


PM_ME_UR_GLOVES

🛳️🛳️🛳️


Parchabble

Bote!


elgenie

lol Nimmo was so sure he was catching that and then wall said otherwise


rotallytad

Lol bote


Hope4years

BOTE!!


Hope4years

Coom said Alonso’s antics fired up Sampson and made him pitch even better


lupin43

“I hit it 400 feet in the air, why isn’t this a home run?!?!?” - Pete, probably


rotallytad

Let him gooooo Ross


Youeffeduphaha

Really annoying that i cant watch this series


elgenie

Bote and McKinstry are the two Spidermen meme personified, so of course they have good double play chemistry.


lupin43

DP!!!


rotallytad

Cubs bullpen? I’m out


malepitt

NGL: I kinda like the "what the hell" decision to listen to this game where we presumably get mowed down by deGrom. September, we're way out of it, etc. Scoring at home, listening to the radio guys, and we're up 3-0, unexpectedly. Like I said, "what the hell" and carrying on. DISCLAIMER: New Belgium Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA sponsored this message


rotallytad

Degrommit still running it up 100 mph. Maybe shoulda done that inning 1-3


1005thArmbar

degrom is good but it's complete recency bias to say he's the best of all time. holy shit that's an idiotic take, fuck off sciambi


Hope4years

Glad I’m listening to the radio. That’s a bizarre thing for anyone with any knowledge of baseball history to say.


MostMirror

There's not a wrong answer in that poll question


SwAeromotion

Kershaw is a wrong answer given his playoff resume.


mt77932

I get home from work to find Sampson outdueling Degrom! Did I pass through a portal into an alternate universe!?!


iamthatguythere

We’ve activated deGroms rage. Just ripping 98+ against happ


elgenie

He was throwing 100 with 93mph sliders from the get-do. The first pitch of the game was 98.8.


iamthatguythere

I’m only watching on the app play by play, in the Mets area so blacked out.


elgenie

The formidable Mets lineup has managed all of one run in 11 innings against Javier Assad and Adrian Sampson.


Hope4years

Do you ever catch yourself with your mouth hanging open? I just watched that strikeout to end the 5th and Sampson has given up NO runs while deGrom has given up 3… whaaaa?


[deleted]

Sampson > Degrom confirmed


guy_incognito23

It is known


neonxmoose99

J.D. with the line of the night


lupin43

Can’t outrun that punchout


Spectre211286

Lol JD for Gryffindor


rotallytad

I was told the Mets were good 😂


rotallytad

Bro Sampson thru 4 1/3 no runs lol


lupin43

I love the idea that Suzuki has said approximately two sentences in English to Boog, and he made sure one was to comment on his ice cream belly. He is adorable


elgenie

IDK what a right handed batter is supposed to do against 93mph sliders away out of the zone, but located in places that Laz Diaz has called strikes.


malepitt

supposed to do? drink, after the game


poundfourpound

Long way to go in this one but funny as hell that this shit ass AAA lineup is beating the Mets.


elgenie

Of course, three of the four hits are from non-AAA-quality players.


Hope4years

I love it


lupin43

Damn Hermosillo making his presence known in this one already


elgenie

rotallytad

Member when the Mets traded pca for javy Baez?


elgenie

Javy put up great numbers for them … except his first week there, when he sucked and the team sucked and they immediately fell out of the playoff picture, never to work their way back in.


rotallytad

Him and Lindor still text each other. I’m sure of it


lupin43

Obviously Trevor williams was the big piece in that trade


elgenie

Williams has been surprisingly solid for them since the trade. Over 100 IP with an ERA of 3 in 35 appearances (12 starts).


1005thArmbar

hell yeah hermosillo


Hope4years

Hermosillo haters - that was pretty


[deleted]

LOL we got 3 runs off Degrom


lupin43

I don’t even know why I watch when Diaz is back there


neonxmoose99

This deGrom guy is a bum. idk what everybody sees in him. /s

It’s New York pizza so that explains it

Someone get Taylor a customized Tracy McGrady jersey with "T-Mac" on the back.


TranceScape

Bote is completely toast.


MaveInfinite

yeah its a shame he doesnt have it anymore..Fran is the player we all wanted Bote to be. Either way, I wont forget him. Was he brought in after 2016 or did he get a ring?


[deleted]

His debut season was when he hit that grand slam to win it against the nats


SwAeromotion

The only players left on the team from 2016 are Heyward, Hendricks, and Contreras.


TranceScape

He made his debut in 2018


PM_ME_UR_GLOVES

Rivas, stop it with that long swing just fucking make contact here
