that was a tough call but I think wong tried to short hop it and get a quick tag and looked like he missed lost the ball before the contact if any. so all in all im ok with the play call.April 19, 2019 at 8:26 pm #88050
Tells you how the game is going in Jeff McNeil has three plate appearances and its only the 3rd inning.April 19, 2019 at 8:26 pm #88051
Brian on board…..Euro is going to have to watch his language now…..oh looks like Euro isn’t with us this evening. Can anyone think of a better place tonight to be than right here???April 19, 2019 at 8:27 pm #88052
one thing ive noticed, way too many offspeed pitches by waino. he doesn’t have great command up them and its driving his pitch count up. is he even gonna make it past 4 or even 3 innings.April 19, 2019 at 8:28 pm #88053
Mets have left 7 stranded thru 3….this could be much worse, gang!April 19, 2019 at 8:29 pm #88054

Wainwright has thrown 76 pitches through three innings. Of these, 44 have been strikes. Yikes!April 19, 2019 at 8:30 pm #88055
I really don’t see how you can send him back out there for a 4th inning. Already at 76 pitches and they’ve burned 2 mound visits.April 19, 2019 at 8:32 pm #88056
well Im not gonna call it great or even good pitching, but at least it hasn’t busted open. maybe we can still pull this out. we need to start getting some runs though. we are at a weird place. do you want to really work the bullpen to try to win this game which hurts us going forward or do we put someone in as a sacrificial lamb and save the bullpen but less likely for us to win though we still could.April 19, 2019 at 8:39 pm #88058
Bottom of 3
Carp – 6-6 lifetime vs Jason “Las” Vargas. Sky’s it to straight away center where Linares has her measured….1 out…I think I may have hexed our 3rd baseman.
Goldy – Hits it deep to center!…but that one does not have enough TNT in it to propel it out of here…..and Linares will glove it about 14 inches in front of the track for the out.
DeJong – Walks
Ozuna – DeJong to 2nd on a botched kickoff attempt….it’ll go down as DeJong’s 2nd stolen base of the year .
JMart – Rifles a shot towards the gap in right center where the outfielders converge…where Linares snatches it as he and Comforto collide….Linares had that ball snowconed in the upper reaches of his glove’s webbing, but somehow he hung in to it.

In the Cardinals, defense Vargas only came into the game with an ERA around a thousand. The Cardinals have historically been lousy against pitchers like Vargas. I fully expect him to go 5 scoreless innings.April 19, 2019 at 8:43 pm #88060
The ball is finding Martinez in RF tonight and it is only the third inning. Where are those folks who were wanting him to be the everyday starter? I am watching the Mets telecast and they are being frank about the fact he cannot play in the field (as well as being very positive about his ability to hit a fastball).
Wainwright is pulled in the fourth having thrown 86 pitches. Gallegos inherits two in scoring position and no out.April 19, 2019 at 8:45 pm #88061
Brillaint managing by Shildt sending Waino back out for the 4th. Just brilliant. If the game wasn’t out of reach before then it could be now.April 19, 2019 at 8:46 pm #88062
well kind of silly leaving waino out there. its what long relievers are for. at most you were gonna get one more inning anyway, just silly in my opinion.April 19, 2019 at 8:53 pm #88063
Gallegos does a nice job getting three outs with only the runner scoring from third. Mets up 4-0 in the middle of the fourth.April 19, 2019 at 8:54 pm #88064

Could have been worse, The season starting trend by starting pitchers is worrisome … team needs to start getting six innings out of starters. I am worried the bull pen will run out of steam sooner rather than later.April 19, 2019 at 8:56 pm #88065
And Martinez answers the criticism with a solo home run, his first of the year.April 19, 2019 at 8:58 pm #88066
well this game is kind on of on the downside right now so im gonna relay something baseball related but only personally. I was out on this walking/bike path the other day and there was some road workers fixing a barrier that had been ran over. well one of the people holding the stop/go sign was looking at me like he knew me but I didn’t recognize him. he said I was his baseball coach back when he was young, mentioned my sons name who was on the team and gave me his name. I actually told him I remembered him but I didn’t. I coached hundreds of kids over the years. but later when I was telling my son about it, I started remembering him partly cause his dad was one of my coaches. pretty cool, that a kid could remember me after 45 years or so.April 19, 2019 at 8:59 pm #88067
good for Martinez. that’s a start. lets get this place jumping now.April 19, 2019 at 9:03 pm #88068April 19, 2019 at 9:08 pm #88069
Great story, but everyone here would surely recognize 1982 willie today!April 19, 2019 at 9:08 pm #88070
Cool story, Willie!!!April 19, 2019 at 9:09 pm #88071
Let’s see a pic of you, Willie.April 19, 2019 at 9:15 pm #88072
Carpenter made a bad running decision not coming home on an infield out. Second and third with one out and Ozuna up.
From one of the Mets beat writers…
Dreadful baserunning by Matt Carpenter there not scoring from 3B on slow roller with infield back, but nobody cares about baserunning anymore, especially the players
— Kevin Kernan (@WheresKernan) April 20, 2019
DeJong, Ozuna and Martinez all fail to get the runners in scoring position home, though DeJong’s roller should have scored Carpenter.April 19, 2019 at 9:18 pm #88073
no pictures, Pugsley. im too ugly for those. im glad for goldy, but that was an error not a hit. still might get something here. need a flyball hereApril 19, 2019 at 9:19 pm #88074
well bwalton, its a tough read. if he breaks right away, that guy can still go home. if he waits then runs, could be a double play
