    I like the way Tatis stole 3rd on the same pitcher when up 6 last night. A real F You to all those complaining!

    Mets the latest team to get hit by COVID. Tonight and tomorrow’s games off.

    Weekend series off now too.

    The fake noise in the A's v Angels game on now is really annoying. At times when Oakland are batting they have an instrumental "let's go Oakland" chant played on what sounds like a kid's guitar on repeat. And what makes it more annoying is that there is an organ player in the stadium playing the usual stuff so the two sounds are going against each other. I've had to put it on mute whenever it starts up.

    Brewers following the Bucks and not playing tonight.

    God knows what's going to happen tonight or the weekend. The season is already so messed up from Covid game cancellations. How long before it is shortened full time and the playoffs begin?

    All games on MLB.tv are free today


    EDIT - In hindsight, watching the Mets blow a 5 run lead in the last inning wasn't nice to see. damn you MLB.tv for allowing me to see that!

    I love an in-game trade. Villar from the Marlins taken out in the 6th as he's getting traded to Toronto, who just happen to be the Marlins next opponents in Miami tomorrow. So does he fly home with the team?

    Padres are going to be pissed when they don't win the WS.

    The good old Mets. Trade their best pitching prospect for Miguel Castro

    The sooner Cohen takes over and gets rid of BVV the better. He is so out of his depth it is unbelievable. He has basically gutted the pitching depth in the organisation for b-list players.

    I've given up on this season entirely. My hope with Cohen coming in is that;

    A - He fires BVW
    B - Hires a new GM (I'm not looking for outstanding. One who is competent will do just fine for now)
    C - Invests money in the team

    Worse still. They're bringing back Todd Frazier.


    I'm so glad I've written off the season. Won't go through as much alcohol as a result.

    Frazier and Chirinos. 34 & 37 respectively. So much for investing in youth and athleticism.

    Anyway, next season here we come!!

    Adieu, Tom Seaver, The Franchise, greatest Mets pitcher of all time, HOF. As dominating a pitcher as I ever saw pitch for a number of years. I remember opening day the year he returned from the Reds, standing and chanting his name at Shea Stadium as he walked in from the bullpen.

    RIP

    5 double headers, 20 games in total today. Most games in a day for 46 years if they're all played.

    Its a bit like extra time in American Football if you scrapped the kick off and allowed the team who won the toss to have their first down on the 50 yard line

    They should keep the DH in both leagues though. Enough of that farce. Either both leagues, or neither.

    I cant see that reverting back. The bottom line from the players point of view is that there is now 15 more spots available.
