Great time at Citi Field. Had some drinks but man our team is bad. Season is over


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

Season over, better luck next year


Blue387

The ballgame is over.


UltraVires33

And so is the season.


Bucket-Cat

Was pillars walk up song “fat bottomed girls”? Lol what a weird song choice


JoshTShaw823

Well there’s the season


NY2PHX

John, not to worry most of his at bats this year have been bad.


NY2PHX

Maybe because it's a Saturday night, maybe because the team sucks and they're done but only 650 or so posts tonight.


myassholealt

Participation dropped off a Cliff right around the turn of august to September. It's crazy how quickly it happened. Like on a Monday the comments were 1700 by end of game. On Tuesday it barely cleared 700.


OtherAcctWasBanned11

Football is back too.


NY2PHX

I was 3 for 3 earlier in the day with a Bronx team loss, and Red Sox and Blue Jay wins. I guess I used all my good luck earlier in the day.


hangout_wangout

it was fun while it lasted. No matter how much I get my heart broken, i'll come back for the next game with a smile


jerejeje

The Mets will win this game if Jose Peraza bats in the 9th inning. That dude is ONLY good with the game on the line.


OtherAcctWasBanned11

I’m thinking Baez leads off with a single. McNeil pops out to right. And McCann grounds into a double play to end it. Sound about right? Edit: Never mind.


jerejeje

Nah. Baez single, McNeil HBP, McCann triple play.


OtherAcctWasBanned11

I don’t think we’ve had a game ending triple play yet so sure. It would be appropriate for us.


Blue387

Side retired!

Bobby Bonilla jokes are some of the lowest hanging fruit on the tree.

Blue387

Sit down, Bryce!


4Door77Monaco

Can't wait til we make it a 1 run game then leave it at that.


4Door77Monaco

Brah, I'm on the Blue Jays bandwagon. Not ashamed to say it.


NY2PHX

I'm a Rays man myself.


Blue387

One pitch, one out!


myassholealt

Wtf is this subway commercial


Blue387

Jeurys Familia to pitch for the Mets, you know what to do


OtherAcctWasBanned11

Lie back and think of England?


NY2PHX

With the Cards win, our wild card tragic number down to 9. Could be 8 in about 20 minutes.


GoBeaversOSU

0-4 with three hangers. Konforto


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

Absolutely never lucky


OtherAcctWasBanned11

At least it wasn’t a Golden Sombrero.


Blue387

Conforto avoids a sombrero by grounding out


Ranseler

One of the few bright spots this year. I love Nimmo. Love the joy he gets from the game. How can you not love this guy? Plus DAMN he can play the game!


13simba

I guess we are motivated to lose by 1


baconinja09

That's our sparkplug


Cb23bx

Nimmo different


thtkidfrmqueens

**NIMMO** *Hustles and Smiles folks, Hustles and Smiles.*


mrbojanglesXIV

Maybe Nimmo can play CF and manager next year?


myassholealt

We need him to take over the hitting department. Not the coach. The top top dog who determines what the team's offensive philosophy is gonna be and then directs everyone below him to orient their work tasks to achieving that objective.


mrbojanglesXIV

I don't know if my little heart can handle more than three outcomes. ​ Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh who am I kidding I love this idea. Give Nimmo the reins.


Hustlediva

Always with no one on base


Blue387

IT IS GOING GOING IT IS GONE GOOD BYE!


Blue387

Hector Neris to pitch for the Phillies


4Door77Monaco

Liberty mutual ad followed by the applebees country rap song? Wasn't aware I'd rather watch us lose than get the ad break til now.


Blue387

Side retired!


hateuscuzyoenis

I might be wrong, but I think Villar hurt his thumb on the swing. It seemed like it snapped where his thumb guard was.


hateuscuzyoenis

Cmon Rasta, end this inning…


OtherAcctWasBanned11

No, please, walk the guy batting .094.


akaghi

At what point do you just bat the pitcher instead?


SpiffyArmbrooster

this dude is batting under .100 dude just throw strikes


baconinja09

Ummm don't walk this guy


jimmybond000

This could be the last time we see villar in a Met uniform


unitedairlineeeeees

Mets bad


KenPiffyJr

oh no we suck


baconinja09

Smoltz seem like the kind of guy who would choose "Born in the USA" for his walkup song


4Door77Monaco

Cracking up at the Smoltz walk up song story tbh lol


myassholealt

Of course Smoltz doesn't understand walkup songs. He probably doesn't like music at all. Story gets even better to confirm my impression of him. Objects to Dancing queen. Too homo I guess. *he's a s t r a i g h t m a n*


SpiffyArmbrooster

I mean he literally said “I don’t know the words to a single song” after you posted this lmao he doesn’t like music, I guess.


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

Is Castro’s walk out song a Spanish version of Deadz by Migos?


SledgeNX

LMAO That was so a foul! These Umps are so blind its unbelievable


jameskeg

It wasn’t even close to being foul…


jameskeg

Villar prob out for season


Hustlediva

All 2 weeks left


baconinja09

Villar hurt?


robmcolonna123

Yes. On the swing


Metboy1970

That slow death The Mets have been dying since the All-Star break is starting to accelerate.


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

Villar’s crouching, looks hurt


_token_black

Why do these announcers sound like they were slipped Ambien?


OtherAcctWasBanned11

The coke finally wore off.


SpiffyArmbrooster

yay Dom

[удалено]


OtherAcctWasBanned11

I ask myself that every spring when the Mets open camp and then again in July when the Jets open camp. My life is not enjoyable most of the year.


senpai-soldier

Ah, another year, another season of coming up short. Anyone like myself born after '86 we have a lot of waiting to go before we finally see this team win.


4Door77Monaco

McCann needs to change his walk up song. When I hear Imagine Dragons I automatically shudder.


myassholealt

They played a country song for him before an at bat on Monday. Either he has a second song, or they accidentally played Mazieka's song, lol.


4Door77Monaco

As a country music (older country) I'll take that over Imagine Dragons.


SpiffyArmbrooster

it’s so on brand for a white, Christian family man like McCann to have Imagine Dragons as his walk up music


OtherAcctWasBanned11

But McCann is so aggressively Caucasian that Imagine Dragons actually works for him.


4Door77Monaco

Player injured? Time for a word from lysol!


mcman12

You coulda let that one fall dude


myassholealt

McNeil is a highlight reel hitter: fielders constantly make those sort of plays to ensure he doesn't get a hit.


OtherAcctWasBanned11

McCutchen looks concussed.


myassholealt

Which in major league sports means he's totally fine.


OtherAcctWasBanned11

Well yeah. You don’t need a fully functional brain for hit ball, catch ball, throw ball.


mcman12

Jesus fuck


4Door77Monaco

McNeil can't even buy a hit right now. Sucks.


NJImperator

Jeff can’t catch a break


ct2707

McNeil has such bad luck


Sad-Perception

Jeff


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

Jeff has no fucking luck


myassholealt

The arms in the bullpen haven't "equated to the arms and/or success" I really hate it when my arms don't equate to arms.


Rabbledabbel

I can’t wait for us to get 3 runs in the 8th and leave 2 on in the 9th.


andyoh212

We going to get swept by the Phillies.... By Monday there is no more hoping that Mets will make the playoffs. It's hard being a Mets Ny Giants fan now.


NJImperator

How did people still have hope??


baconinja09

I blame only Brad Hand for putting May in that situation in the first place


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

Good crowd on a Saturday before the stretch and you shut the line down what the fuck dude don’t you want to make money?


4Door77Monaco

Phils have already surpassed our maximum allotment of 4 runs.


[deleted]

[удалено]


matt3302

I hope you piss the bed tonight


13_PG_13

I do not like seeing Bryce Harper be happy


Sheepies123

Trevor May is a bad pitcher


OtherAcctWasBanned11

Well at least they won’t lose by one again.


gh234ip

You still have 3 innings to go


OtherAcctWasBanned11

True but the offense looks dead tonight.


gh234ip

Hasn't the Phillies BP blown the most saves?


OtherAcctWasBanned11

Honestly I have no idea. I know their pen isn’t good but our offense kinda stinks so…


4Door77Monaco

*Touch brain meme* Can't lose a 1 run game if we give the opposition a bigger lead


StayBlessedFam

Why are we throwing a guy like 5 fastballs in a row? Who is calling these fucking pitches


matt3302

May can’t throw anything else rn


StayBlessedFam

Just watched him get Realmuto out with off speed pitches. We watching the same game?


mcman12

Should’ve walked him.


baconinja09

Yep. That's what happens when you miss your high fastball to Harper


DarkThorsDickey

I hate Harper and his stupid gorgeous hair.


UltraVires33

Of course, it's Bryce Harper. FML.


matt3302

Lol bro gets an extra life and comes back to bite us


myassholealt

thanks ump.


Blue387

Good night, nurse


jameskeg

Johny got his gun?


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

They fucking suck


gh234ip

In 33 minutes I'll have been up for 24 hours. The joy of working midnights and getting out of work at 9am on a Sat morning.


4Door77Monaco

[strike this mother fucker out](https://youtu.be/W9665weLclE)


baconinja09

May's a 1 pitch guy


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

They should down the waffles place before the seventh inning stretch I can’t win


myassholealt

Should be a strike out. Now he's gonna instead blast a 3 run bomb.


OtherAcctWasBanned11

How was that not a swing??


Sheepies123

May’s got nothing but his fastball again


myassholealt

I find it hilarious the extent of the boos by Mets fans for Bryce Harper. He'll be 80, at Citi for an all-star game celebration, get announced, and mets fans will probably boo him. Then cheer, since he's retired and can't hurt us anymore.


MegaManXanax

He doesn’t really do that much to us tbh he’s not like Utley or Murphy


Throwing99it99away9

Yeah but he’s still a douchebag. Fuck. That. Guy.


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

HE FUCKING WENT I HATE THIS GAME


13_PG_13

Just tuned in and this is SO MUCH WORSE without GKR Also Herrera shouldn’t be in the MLB


SledgeNX

How was he not out at first? It seemed like he was tagged with the ball, and it got knocked out by the tag?


David-S-Pumpkins

Yeah I don't know the rule on that. Pete secured it intiailly but I guess it's like running over that catcher.


Blue387

Two away!


KantExplain

Hi fellow kids. How did Cookie look tonight? LFGM!


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

Pretty good, Segura had his number but very nice besides that


KantExplain

Good. We will need him next year.


mortal_rombat17

What is Smoltz talking about? Segura's stance doesn't look unorthodox at all.


David-S-Pumpkins

I'm not convinced Smoltz actually knows what words mean.


redwingsfriend45

that play worked like the second time i tried it in mlb 07 (shoutout david wright), and like none of 90 other times i tried it


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

Mets get burned by another rough Hand job


andyoh212

I'm really starting to believe this team is cursed. We can't get a break....


UltraVires33

It's not a curse, they just suck.


baconinja09

That wasn't smooth Pete


myassholealt

Was it the same hand that got hit that ended up punching the ball out of the glove? What luck/irony.


NJImperator

Herrera getting hurt would basically be the only positive of the night.


myassholealt

damn it Pete.


UsedToBeBradfordTwo

Why hasn’t Hand been DFA’d yet? Sandy still got to get his money’s worth out of his 2 year long Hand Hardon?


Blue387

Damn it


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

Comedy of errors


Triforce179

Beer Snake Update https://imgur.com/SDUIbXx.jpg


Blue387

CB Bucknor lives in Brooklyn, he was originally a physical therapist who decided to become an umpire


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

So if Trevor May was available the whole time, WHY NOT JUST PITCH TREVOR MAY


Slice_Of_Life_DM

I think that’s it for me tonight


baconinja09

Can we DFA Brad Hand now?


NJImperator

I hope Herrera is hurt :)


David-S-Pumpkins

"There's a lot of places I could go right now..." Please go there, Smoltz.


InstructionNo3616

Buckner is an embarrassment.


Eson_The_Searcher

Hand hits hand.


baconinja09

Still not taking out Hand? That's 3 batters faced


Blue387

Not a hit by pitch? I can't see over the radio


HAHAYESVERYFUNNYNAME

Rojas has to be punting these games on purpose


gh234ip

Avocado tastes better when it's chilled


myassholealt

And very very bad when warmed up. I bought a breakfast sandwich from a "hip" coffee shop: runny egg and avocado on a croissant. It got cold by the time I got to work to eat it so I warmed it up. Biting into hot avocado mixed in with the yolk of an egg made me gag. Most disgusting thing I tasted in a while.


gh234ip

Bought a bag last Sat and they were hard as rocks, left them out to ripen and just having one now. YECH!


Allisaur21

THREE teams dropped Brad Hand within the last year for a reason


Bacedorn

Do they keep bringing in Hand because they’re just *not quite* sure if they want to re-sign him. Seriously though how many times this month has Hand not made it out of an inning? If a guy gets canned by two teams in one season, you know something is terribly wrong.


suckmytesticles

Hand has too much milage on him. He's used up


supreme_customs_nyc

I didn't mind the Hand acquisition but he has NOT had it for us


InstructionNo3616

Just let carrasco pitch the inning, wtf.


GeekTrollMemeCentral

At the game. I’m just shaking my head in disappointment. What a crappy way to end the season basically


Metboy1970

Well, everyone that was worried about the 1 run game…Mr Brad Hand everyone.


akaghi

I feel better about our chances coming back from two behind than one behind, at this point.


Nights_King

I can’t believe how much I wanted Bauer and Hand before the season started. Never hire me to run the Mets front office.


mcman12

Should’ve been an out. Fuck.


[deleted]

[удалено]


myassholealt

If you're walking everyone when do they get the 27 outs needed for a game to be completed? That just sounds like an infinite inning.


sparkie557

Pick offs. But I realized (obviously) that picking off every player is equally as unlikely as every player just not coming to bat and being called out automatically (which is another way to pitch 0 times and finish out a game). Either just wouldn’t happen. But at least pickoffs exist in the normal realm of the everyday game


jameskeg

Another fucked strike call results in run


Blue387

Miller scores :(


David-S-Pumpkins

Smoltz has never actually seen baseball before.


Metboy1970

Seriously. He made a comment about “getting points on the board”. No points, John. Come on. That’s a no-no.


Orange8920

Why has Lindor been a complete non-factor since the Yankee series?


robmcolonna123

He literally scored their only RBI today, got two hits yesterday, and a hit in every Cardinals game…


myassholealt

If you don't go 4-4 or 5-5 and get an RBI every at bat you're garbage. -Some Mets fans


robmcolonna123

I think you use the term fans loosely lol
