GGs everybody, way to come out and finish it up with five outs two days in a row Hughes
Lol, fucking Mets.
# [ W ] [ W ]
W! I hate the Mets! We took the series!
#[ W ]
#[W] STATUS: FLYING
The count is incorrectly correct at 1-1
What is with these random zoom ins tonight lol
intentionally walk Escobar, Ruf fucking fucks with the Mets
I feel like they are pumping crowd noise in
Get loud, routine fly ball to center!!!
lmao that ball was absolutely crushed... can't be putting 93 middle-middle on the Polar Bear...
Just knew that shit was coming.
Anyway Ian happ has a 4.0 WAR
Kyle Shwarber: 1.0
What’s wrong with having both Happ & Kyle on the team?
2 left fielders would b nice but they ruined the shift
So one of them can’t be DH?
I mean sure. But Willy/Reyes hopefully will be that next year
Willy should be our main catcher and Kyle would’ve been the perfect DH. But he’s gone so it is what it is.
Huh? Willson is/was having his best year since Gomes is actually backing him up
maybe, but I will always be team Schwarber. Ian is nice but he always heats up in Sept
like I said, we had/have the money for both.
It's a bit closer by fWAR, but Happ has been the better player offensively and (by a ton) defensively and on the bases.
That's fine indeed :D
Well, glad nobody was on base and I’m glad he didn’t homer off of Sampson
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.
\*Ahem 2019 & 2020 Kimbrel\*
Happ is an ~~all star~~ Gold Glover
I’ll say it again: I love Ian Happ
In other news, the twins have a combined no no through eight against the royals. I do like a good no no
Hot take. Marvel needs to take a decade long break. All this super hero shit is getting old
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.
i will die on this hill with you. it's pretty bad
Eh im still enjoying it fine. I’d just stop if I stopped enjoying it
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.
Small ball is gonna make a comeback next year and the cubs are just being the trendsetters
Happy Birthday to the Cutest Cub, Alfonso Rivas <3
Death by a thousand bunts
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.
Oh, there was definitely a lot of luck involved in all of that.
Good bunt there Rivas. We will single-handedly raise the league wide bunt totals
More bunts! More bunts! More bunts!
What’s the cubs obp? On bunt %
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."
Rivas looks like Mac from always sunny
exploiting their bunt weakness, h*ck yeah
Play the game Yan!
Yan "Ricky Henderson" Gomes
They shouldn’t do that trumpet thing when they’re losing or it’s not a close game
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
Taylor v ms. Met
Ms met because she thicc
Elise menaker is the correct answer
All that hype just to pitch around yan and give up a hit💀
i want to fuck mrs met
God that's one fantastic walk in song. So intimidating
Damn, Ms. Met is looking kinda thicc for a baseball..
it’s so funny to see mets saying the season is over when we’ve been enduring this suffering for the season
Especially when they essentially have a playoff spot already locked up
seriously lmao I just don’t understand it
My god. Ruker/Hughes no runs?
Is this the real life or is this just fantasy
caught in a landslide
... 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.
ROCK ON HUGHES
Don't give Lindor any fast meaties in the middle of the strike zone.
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\*
I have a feeling the entire city of Atlanta is rooting for us right now.
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
Get rucker out now ROSS
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!
That feels like an incredible waste of lobster
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.
“Early in American history” is always a prelude to sum dumb ass shit.
“In American history” also usually has a similar effect
“Right now in American history”
Yes I know and that’s not how it’s considered anymore
The instant Happ popped out, a loud, "FUCK!!" could be heard on the radio broadcast, and I have to assume that was probably Ian.
Ian happ: "FUCK!"
It was. All the hitters' f-bombs are coming through loud and clear on TV as well.
Mets don’t want none. That is all
"Fiddlesticks!" ~ Ian Happ, per Boog, presumably
the field mics are really picking up all the Fucks today
Aww dang - Happ
Happ also said "darn"
Ian “FUCK!” Happ
Play the game Seiya!
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.
Mets pitchers are dangerous and should be suspended for the life of their contract
what the hell
Anyway you can get it Seiya
I’m so glad Seiya got on base; he’s had another night of bad ump calls
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.
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.
[Cheers from San Diego! Alpine Brewing’s Duet IPA. Amazing. And lots of Bote McBotefaces in the background](https://imgur.com/a/E4Q2PYK)
Cheers from my basement! I'm sitting on the old sofa drinking a Coke Zero.
Still sounds like a good time to me!
Eat some California burritos.
Going to get Mexican in a few 🔥
The rucker, bote, Rivas combo is unstoppable.
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
Aww dang - vogelbach
Sampson > deGrom, don't @ me
Boog: … popped in the air, Vogelbach says ^"darn"
I don’t understand baseball.
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?
Only Mets let bote go deep on them
Mets and dodgers, only NL heavyweights lol
Really thought he was gonna get robbed there.
Boat way to go!
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.
David Bote slander will not be tolerated
lol Nimmo was so sure he was catching that and then wall said otherwise
Coom said Alonso’s antics fired up Sampson and made him pitch even better
“I hit it 400 feet in the air, why isn’t this a home run?!?!?” - Pete, probably
Let him gooooo Ross
Really annoying that i cant watch this series
Bote and McKinstry are the two Spidermen meme personified, so of course they have good double play chemistry.
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
Degrommit still running it up 100 mph. Maybe shoulda done that inning 1-3
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
Glad I’m listening to the radio. That’s a bizarre thing for anyone with any knowledge of baseball history to say.
There's not a wrong answer in that poll question
Kershaw is a wrong answer given his playoff resume.
I get home from work to find Sampson outdueling Degrom! Did I pass through a portal into an alternate universe!?!
We’ve activated deGroms rage. Just ripping 98+ against happ
He was throwing 100 with 93mph sliders from the get-do.
The first pitch of the game was 98.8.
I’m only watching on the app play by play, in the Mets area so blacked out.
The formidable Mets lineup has managed all of one run in 11 innings against Javier Assad and Adrian Sampson.
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?
Sampson > Degrom confirmed
It is known
J.D. with the line of the night
Can’t outrun that punchout
Lol JD for Gryffindor
I was told the Mets were good 😂
Bro Sampson thru 4 1/3 no runs lol
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
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.
supposed to do? drink, after the game
Long way to go in this one but funny as hell that this shit ass AAA lineup is beating the Mets.
Of course, three of the four hits are from non-AAA-quality players.
I love it
Damn Hermosillo making his presence known in this one already
[Sampson appreciating the catch](https://i.pinimg.com/564x/cc/e1/b1/cce1b132a3a558c2997fc3a5cc5c8472.jpg)
Member when the Mets traded pca for javy Baez?
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.
Him and Lindor still text each other. I’m sure of it
Obviously Trevor williams was the big piece in that trade
Williams has been surprisingly solid for them since the trade. Over 100 IP with an ERA of 3 in 35 appearances (12 starts).
hell yeah hermosillo
Hermosillo haters - that was pretty
LOL we got 3 runs off Degrom
I don’t even know why I watch when Diaz is back there
This deGrom guy is a bum. idk what everybody sees in him.
[Look at this beautiful man I saw while I was running in San Diego](https://imgur.com/a/uPRdous)
I miss Yu
I miss Yu too 😢
Con-a get it right Boog
TMac redeems herself with the banning of pineapple
was it just me or did that pizza look like ass?
It’s New York pizza so that explains it
Someone get Taylor a customized Tracy McGrady jersey with "T-Mac" on the back.
Bote is completely toast.
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?
His debut season was when he hit that grand slam to win it against the nats
The only players left on the team from 2016 are Heyward, Hendricks, and Contreras.
He made his debut in 2018
Rivas, stop it with that long swing just fucking make contact here
