Lucroy got a few hits for the cubs, little dissapointed we didnt get him for the strech run, big improvement over Nido imo.

Not to get too off topic, but the one that seemed most wrong was what happened to the Reds in 1981 during the strike shortened season. Best record in baseball but didn't make the playoffs.

They split the halfs like minor league ball and let the two winners of each half make the playoffs. I think that was Seaver's final Cy Young season too.


He should have won the Cy Young but didn't. I think it was Fernando-mania. And Nolan Ryan had a great year too.

The Giants have a 3-0 lead over the Phillies.

The Mets could be tied with the Phillies by the end of that game.

Not quite.

The Brewers are currently tied with the Phillies, so the Mets and Phillies and Cardinals would be tied, 0.5 games behind the Brewers.

The Phillies lost.

The Mets have caught the Phillies and Cardinals.

Next up: the Nationals, who are starting a three-game series in Queens tonight.

The free-falling Phillies have now been outscored 541 to 572 this season.

Todd Frazier (and Andrew McCutchen) has more WAR than Bryce Harper.

The Phillies and Nationals play a 5-game series September 23rd through September 26th (there's a double header in there) at the very end of the season. The Mets just need to take focus on winning and those two can cannibalize each other to end the year.

Edit: The Mets have a 4-game series against the Marlins during the same stretch.

The baseball gods have lined this up for the Mets.

You always worry about upsetting chemistry with these DFA moves, but I don't think Hart or Altherr DFAs would do it.

Hechevarria seemed to be well-liked however and was on the roster for 3 months. Hopefully not a jinx situation.

I am getting a 2015 vibe from the team. And while Alonso and McNeil are rightly getting a lot of the attention, the contributions from Rosario and JDD are making a HUGE difference. I love the line-up 1-5. Ramos, Frazier and now Panik are the types of veteran bats that good teams have at the bottom of the order.

Keep the starters healthy. Hope at least one more reliever steps up along with Lugo

LFGM!

This has been amazing. Lest we forget, a lot of folks here had said that the team looked like it should’ve at least been decent, but it wasn’t working for whatever reason and that maybe it was time to burn it all down. This is what it looks like when it’s working.
