tphez

baconinja09

Man, Diaz... If you walk this guy....


Blue387

STRUCK HIM OUT


padds98

Wasn’t even close


Unable-Reindeer-7468

he’s squeezing the fuck outta that strike zone


CybeastID

He wasn't half an inning ago


toledosurprised

he got robbed on the last AB


Blue387

Crowd not happy with the umpire


Blue387

WAYNE: "Of course it's a one run game."


admiral_aubrey

Just turned it on, and wouldn't you know...3 runs. Say what you will about this offense, but they are consistent.


lawoftar

And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number,


admiral_aubrey

bravo


lawoftar

ty


CookieSheaButter

3 runs or less guaranteed


mcman12

I would say double play but it seems Diaz only strikes out or allows HRs.


Hustlediva

Gotta get a double play here don’t want to face Harper or we lose


CybeastID

Ow.


MegaManXanax

If you called that pitch a strike ump Freddie would’ve struck out two minutes ago and wouldn’t have taken a fast ball to the knee. Just sayin.


toledosurprised

this ump’s been a disaster


GreatWallofManhattan

Man, I hope Galvis is fine. Anything to the knee is not fun.


bamj6

The first Sunday night game Diaz was in the 9th and somehow coughed up 4 runs while keeping track in cbssportsline The final Sunday night (unless the Mets can parlay this) has me doing the exact same thing on cbssportsline regarding Diaz. Hope that ends up better


padds98

He swung


CybeastID

Nooooo no he didn't


padds98

Sure did


NY2PHX

Or he just dropped the bat.


Unable-Reindeer-7468

Nice Harper will be coming up now


mcman12

A rod: “You can’t afford a walk” Diaz: let me hit him


seecs2011

Technically not a walk lol. Galaxy brain move


about20ninjas

#LET’S GO METS - A Cardinal


baconinja09

There is no "us"


Blue387

We only take advice from bishops


baconinja09

Omg.


toledosurprised

oh shit that looks bad


unitedairlineeeeees

Fuck Fuck Fuck runner on base


NY2PHX

He just wants to make sure Harper gets to bat.


free__jl

I’m sorry but diaz is still good I know everyone wants to disown him when he has a bad stretch but he is an amazing closer


free__jl

I say as he blows someone knee up


knackisback3

Spoke too soon lol


lawoftar

oh shit that hurts


Hustlediva

Omg Diaz


MegaManXanax

He’s been calling that low strike all night so naturally he didn’t there for the Mets


Blue387

Damn it Diaz


baconinja09

All fastballs so far


[deleted]

[удалено]


jumpman3006

Ya gotta believe😎


baconinja09

Cmon Diaz. Don't put anyone on base


NY2PHX

Too late.


lawoftar

ok no big deal he is out


rotzby

From here on out any little fuck up should immediately get your name thrown in the chopping block. Nido just earned himself a ticket


free__jl

He literally just open his glove


Throwing99it99away9

Why Tomas, why 🥺


Blue387

One away!


GreatWallofManhattan

Hopefully that becomes a moot point and not a turning one..


MegaManXanax

It’s okay to boo when that happens and the catchers name is not Mike Piazza


unitedairlineeeeees

Pain


Jrain415024

Nido 🤦🏽‍♂️


DarkThorsDickey

TWO HANDS YOU HAVE TWO HANDS FOR A FUCKING REASON


ct2707

Are you fn kidding me Nido


DarkThorsDickey

NIDO WHAT THE FUCK


tphez

😬


Hustlediva

Omfg


Blue387

Nido drops the ball!


fuckoffbruh

Mets are literally always overshadowed during the espn broadcasts


Blue387

Hold on to your butts!


baconinja09

Pls pls pls be ⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡ Diaz. Save situation at home, you got this right?


MegaManXanax

He PH’d a guy with a .270 OBP for JD. Holy fuck Rojas sucks.


NY2PHX

Loup was in JD's spot. The pinch hitter was for Loup. Double switch earlier when Loup came in.


jumpman3006

Bryce Harper😕


baconinja09

Dammit


unitedairlineeeeees

Fuck


Blue387

The Mets are ahead, Wayne!


Blue387

Damn it!


CybeastID

I flip back just in time to see that BS strike on Villar. One of THOSE games, huh.


TheMooseIsBlue

ESPN and Fox both really want Harper to win the MVP. Arod called him “generational” and “transcendent.” Dude, he left and his shitty franchise won the WS. Also, they just talk about all these other teams that aren’t here tonight and then it’s like “oh, and the Mets have 2 on.”


PipeGuy64Bit

It's like they're treating the game as a blowout


TheMooseIsBlue

It was the 9th inning of a one run game and they’re talking about a divisional race in the other league.


nycism

“Walk is greater than a double” - Arod


rgthunder1

What an idiotic comment.


NY2PHX

We're reaching to hate A-Rod. Not in any one situation but over a whole season his ability to walk regularly will get him better pitches to hit and he will play up to another level.


myassholealt

But is it a win for the Cubs, Alex?


Blue387

Baez draws a walk!


lawoftar

yes arod..plz shutup


Blue387

Jeopardy theme!


rotzby

I CANNOT wait for confortos phoning it in worthless ass to be gone. Completely gave up after the all star break and is a clearly a huge toxic piece in the club house


CookieSheaButter

I’m sad that ohtani is on the west coast. Have not been able to enjoy how amazing his year has been. Also sucks that he’s on the Angels. The west coast Mets but worse.


MegaManXanax

I am extremely concerned at the thought of Conforto getting paid $20 million to play for the Mets next year. This is much worse than what I imagined a down year would be for Conforto.


myassholealt

Mets need to pay Keith $5 million to spend the off season as his hitting coach. 1-on-1 sessions all winter.


MegaManXanax

Is his ceiling high enough to even justify that?


myassholealt

Keith was super high on him when he first got called up. Always praised the potential power hitter he saw in Conforto. So I figure he's as good a mentor/trainer as any to try and help Conforto right the ship.


Peter_O

Bryce Harper is nowhere close to Brady and LeBron, are you fucking kidding me?


lawoftar

way to excite the crowd conforto


toledosurprised

conforto…


myassholealt

Harper's only 28?? I would've bet he was over 30 by now. Dude's been around for forever.


jumpman3006

Is arod really comparing Bryce Harper to Tom Brady?


Almostthere5229

Holy hell did they seriously just go throw 4 graphics about Harper in the span of Pete’s at bat!?!?


Blue387

Alonso walks


baconinja09

Cmon Pete. Get a hit


CookieSheaButter

Baez and Lindor literally the only bats on this team.


jerejeje

Aaron fucking Loup.


myassholealt

What does the race for reliever of the year look like?


derpbynature

> reliever of the year I think that award tends to go to closers, though, which is unfortunate since Loup has absolutely been lights-out.


NY2PHX

Probably Hader. Although Loup is very close.


Hustlediva

Loup there it is


bamj6

An even 1 ERA and it's not Jacob degrom doing it despite his best efforts


lawoftar

resign loup as the closer..send elite diaz packing


toledosurprised

aaron loup for cy young imo


rgthunder1

Loup for a 2nd inning? What kind of dark magic is this?


JDLovesElliot

The power of an off-day


Blue387

Side retired!


dstraller

First game Rojas has a competent bullpen strategy, expected to see Hand here and lose


lawoftar

loup our new closer


unitedairlineeeeees

Rojas uses Loup for a second inning. Impossible.


baconinja09

Whoa Loup going for another inning?


RedCheese1

Groundbreaking


Good_Fundies31

Top notch ESPN commentary, "The evaluator said, he needs hits" You don't say?


gheost

I love how there was some kind of peptalk rumor going around that the Mets had a meeting. A little too late, don’t you think? What are they getting the players positive for, going separate ways after the season?


bamj6

I want them to win tonight and am happy they're up. That said there is almost a flip between the atmosphere from the subway series and this game. I dont know if that will come back before 2022


NY2PHX

9 Met whiffs tonight. Has even one of those been swinging at a pitch in the zone. I really can't remember. Nido twice, Villar, Lindor were not even close.


RedCheese1

Guys, I just heard McNiel got a hit! I feel like a proud mother.


myassholealt

Is hand throwing in the bullpen for the Mets?


lawoftar

baez and lindor give thumbs down


Hustlediva

Yesss Jeff- hydrate 👍🏻👍🏻


gheost

Jeff McHeal


robmcolonna123

McNeil hitting near .300 the last 15 games! Just in time…..for the season to end


CookieSheaButter

We gotta fix this power outage on the team this off season.


egg663

Nice to see McNeil smile.


gheost

Like seeing a unicorn. Can’t believe I witnessed a McNeil HR. Imagine if these dudes were consistent.


lawoftar

sasquatch


cb3553

Needed that for so long


lawoftar

loup is good food


tmak082685

Sure. Now he wants to hit.


Hustlediva

Once we are mathematically eliminated they’ll be hitting bombs every night


jumpman3006

JEFFMCNEILJEFFMCNEILJEFFMCNEIL


baconinja09

When was the last time McNeil did that!?


gheost

August 1st smh


No-Owl-3202

Man I cannot believe Jeff McNiel just homered


GreatWallofManhattan

How McNeil got his groove back.


Jrain415024

🐿


NY2PHX

And now we have to keep him. It's the Dom and McNeil show tonight.


hangout_wangout

JEFF DIDNT HIT INTO SHIFT UPVOTE PARTY


Hustlediva

How long has it been since we’ve had an actual lead


meme_domestication

MCNEIL YOU DID IT


NY2PHX

Great at scoring late to lose by 1.


Blue387

IT IS GOING GOING IT IS GONE GOOD BYE!


three_dee

They got out of it, but they could have gone to Loup for Galvis. Then Harper is his third batter and you can take him out if he is not successful, so he doesn't have to face Realmuto with runners on.


bdeluxxe

as bad as we are, we'd be worse without Loup.


derpbynature

Get Loupted!


Hustlediva

Or, Loupy, as Rojas loves to say


baconinja09

Loup there it is


hangout_wangout

that was easy! never a doubt.... *as i chug a can of beer between ball 4 and the ground out*


baconinja09

Not mad. Gotta pitch around Bryce. I'll take my chances with realmuto


Blue387

Side retired!


unitedairlineeeeees

Loup there it isn’t


Blue387

Keep it together, Loup!


NordicReagan

Really burning through the bullpen during a tied game huh?


Blue387

Off day tomorrow


NordicReagan

I’m just wondering what happens if they go extra innings. Do they still have a decent number of guys to fall back on? EDIT: Welp fuck me then. Thanks Jeff!


seecs2011

Hearing Luis get booed is nice


three_dee

No, it's as embarrassing and mean-spirited as booing Lindor and Baez


baconinja09

Geez


baconinja09

Cmon Lugo. Don't put Harper on


knackisback3

It may be time to put Dom back in left. He gets a hit almost every pinch hit, meanwhile Jeff looks absolutely lost up there


unitedairlineeeeees

Put Pillar out there. He killed it when Nimmo was out.


knackisback3

Well we stand corrected lmao


knackisback3

Yeah, Pillar would be better than McNeil too


hangout_wangout

[here are the game notes for today's game, if anyone is interested on some tidbits](https://img.mlbstatic.com/mlb-images/image/upload/mlb/ik5bvnkqfiecgxojjwc4.pdf) I've posted about it before but if you go to the Mets MLB website -> Cursor over "NEWS" -> "Game Notes". I feel like this perk being open to the general public is nice. Most teams don't release them unless you have a press pass login.


skyguy118

They really like their puns


baconinja09

Ah fuck did I see Brad Hand come out of the pen? Phew. It's Lugo


WaywardWriter

How many games have we likely lost because a wild Hand appeared at the wrong moment? I'm thinking it's likely five or so at this point.


three_dee

Hard to say, he's had 9 appearances and 5 of them scoreless, however in his 4 scored-upon games, twice he came in with the Mets already losing. The other two times he got a blown hold. So I'm gonna say conservatively he cost the Mets 2 games.


knackisback3

Yeah they look a bit similar, it’s scary until you realize it’s Lugo


Blue387

-_-
