How in the world are the Mets 14-6???April 22, 2018 at 9:09 pm #49797PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
Here’s a first…. Rat not seeking a weather forecast for tomorrow’s game. Hope you’re feeling ok, Rat?? Someone must have finally told Rat where to find The Weather Channel on his tv.April 23, 2018 at 8:06 am #4981014NyquisTParticipant
He doesn’t need the Weather Channel. All he needs is someone in St. Louis to stick their hand out the window and report the result. If it stays dry, we play. If it gets wet… well, you know. 🙂 Mon.am humor.April 23, 2018 at 9:17 am #49827RatsbuddyParticipantFree
Its not close to game time yet…….
Hey Pugs? Did you get to the US Open at Erin Hills last year?April 23, 2018 at 9:40 am #49839gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
How in the world are the Mets 14-6???
Their pitching staff is healthy this year, at least so far. They were decimated with injuries last year. Plus Callaway is probably a breath of fresh air.April 23, 2018 at 3:44 pm #49888PadsFSParticipantFree
I’m interested to see how Luke Weaver responds in this one.April 23, 2018 at 9:04 pm #49894bicyclemikeModeratorPaid - Annual

Yep, pitching is the name of the game. Strong pitching and defense gives a club a chance to win every game. Offense tends to be quieted by good pitching.April 23, 2018 at 9:16 pm #49895stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
I would expect a bounce back from Luke this game. He got hit around a bit last start but he’s too good to be down for long. I’m thinking that ERA is back in the 3s after this start.April 23, 2018 at 9:55 pm #49897PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
Did I go to the US Open? Some call me Pugsley “Erin Hills” Addams, Rat.
For me, this series is going to be a pretty fair indicator of what kind of a club we have. After losing 2-3 earlier in NY, if the Mets come in here and handle us again, then it will signal the start of my doubts as to if our Birds are serious contenders. We have to beat quality teams….. Cincinnati is gone…. and they aren’t coming back for a while.April 24, 2018 at 7:59 am #4990414NyquisTParticipant
We won’t see deGrom this time around and we beat Matz earlier in April. We do have to face Syndegard again (Wed. afternoon) and that will be the tough one.April 24, 2018 at 8:39 am #49911
Right, Ny, except Syndergaard is Thursday afternoon. Against Martinez, that would be a repeat of Opening Day.April 24, 2018 at 3:43 pm #49948April 24, 2018 at 7:13 pm #49971
At the game tonight, club section 1b side. Team looks good warming up, Luke looks relaxed. Weather is perfect – 65, partly cloudy. Nat’l Anthem was well performed by local high school. Time to rock!April 24, 2018 at 7:20 pm #49972April 24, 2018 at 7:32 pm #49973
Weaver 22 pitch 1st inning, but looks to be settling down. Pham in 2 hole and Molina in 5 hole makes sense. Sure enough Carp draws a lead off walk.April 24, 2018 at 7:35 pm #49974
Pham goes BOOM! 2-0April 24, 2018 at 7:36 pm #49975
Fireworks 1st inning (literally)! That ball got out of here quick.April 24, 2018 at 7:39 pm #49976
Tonight's 3B ump, Adrian Johnson, is the same one who blew the call at 3B on Carlos Beltran's liner that stirred up dust but was called foul. It preserved Johan Santana's no-hitter at Citi Field on 6/1/12. Only MLB no-hitter I have ever seen live – and it was tainted. Que sera.

Oquendo needs to move from helping Martinez on his defense to work on his baserunning.
Also, Weaver has walked the leadoff man in both innings.April 24, 2018 at 7:46 pm #49978
Really bad play by Ozuna 2-1April 24, 2018 at 7:46 pm #49979
Weaver can’t throw strikesApril 24, 2018 at 7:48 pm #49980
Wong with a great play.April 24, 2018 at 7:50 pm #49981
Terrible, terrible, terrible.
Ozuna gets handcuffed, the ball gets past him. Then he makes a wimpy throw to Wong as the cutoff. Wong held the ball long enough so the batter could take third and it is scored an RBI triple.
So far, 2017 baserunning and defense tonight.April 24, 2018 at 7:53 pm #49982
Ozuna muffed his play, but no error. Good play Kolten. Agree Weaver having trouble finding the zone. His body language shows frustration. 48 pitches already.
