Baseball 2015

Recommended Posts

15 games played last night and 15 home wins. I bet that doesn't happen very often 

First time ever, apparently.

 

We really can't afford to **** it up now. Our remaining schedule is not all that difficult.

 

Bad teams

 

Rockies (3 road)

Phillies (3 home/6 road)

Red Sox (3 home)

Marlins (3 home/3 road)

Braves (4 road/3 home)

Reds (4 road)

 

 

Good teams

 

Yankees (3 home)

Nationals (3 road)

 

Downside is it's a road heavy schedule and we're much better at home. But overall it's easy and after these next 3 against the Rockies, we don't have to travel any further west than Cincinnati. We've seemingly learned how to hit now too!

The Mariners released Fernando Rodney, at long last. Following the Mariners this summer really felt like a continuation of following Villa all last season.

David Wright returns, hits a HR in his first at bat. Franchise record 8 HRs in one game for the Mets!

So in the 7th inning of the Braves-Yankees game tonight, Brigham pitched to Young. It made me laugh. And reliever Branden Pinder was the first Yankee pitcher to hit a double since Andy Pettitte did so in 2009. The Yanks won 20-6 with number 3 being the only spot in the Yankees order not to score at least two runs.

In other news, Toronto seem to have entirely lost their ability to lose a game of baseball.

Wow. That comeback. 7-1 down to 8-7 win late on. Nats fans, players and staff looked devastated. Mets magic number at #19!

Get the brooms out. Does that sweep mean the end of the Nats. They must have been hoping to claw back some of the Mets lead. To get swept at home has got to knock the confidence of the team

I think it will be difficult to come back from that. Losing at home to your playoff rivals, while leading late in all games, is pretty soul crushing.

Good news that Cespedes has removed that weird clause in his contract so the Mets have a shot at re-signing him. He's been on fire. 

I may even change my avatar if this keeps up!

Nats lose again. Mets win again. Showed good character to win it after giving up a 3 run lead late. Magic number at 12. It's getting close!

Saw this. Cespedes numbers as a Met expanded over 152 games:

664 ABs
208 H
40 2B
12 3B
60 HR
156 RBI
40 BB
12 SB

.313/.360/.681/1.040

Mets lose 5 of 6, Nats win 7 of 8. I can see this going to the final series and the Nats taking it. 

Harvey gave up 1 hit through 5 innings in a 2-1 game. But god forbid he pitches an extra inning, his arm might fall off!

Yogi Berra passed away last night. The man was 90 but it was still kind of a shock waking up to the news of his passing. I've only been a baseball fan for about a decade, and obviously never saw Yogi play, manage or coach, but Yogi was special. Someone on a Yankee forum responded to the news with a fitting Yogi-ism:

RIP Yogi Berra. You came to a fork in the road and took it.
