deGrom up to 80 pitches, have to keep working ABs and get him out of there.
Stanton has gotten a bunch of pitches to hit tonight, nothing so far.
that's a large part of Luis' problem, they are not chasing his stuff like Stanton just did, he's just not anywhere near as accurate as he was at the start of the season
Time for Didi to go deep.
I heard Castig the other day comment multiple times about how interesting it was that JD Martinez and Yeffry Ramirez shared the same last name.
Yeah, I think it's some combo of lack of fastball accuracy and batters picking up what he is throwing early.
OK, that works.
Nice! Michael Kay called Chapman Contreras the other day.
that last pitch was....strange
Asking for time and not getting it, I guess? Strange.
Noah, fat kid made good.
I'm settling into acceptance....twist and turn but we will have nothing resembling a plausible rotation in the playoffs
The AJ Cole experiment is near an end, or should be anyway.
Get about 4 more and it may be an even match when it becomes a bullpen game.
The Mets and Knicks have the same front office strategy. Get former all stars 8 years past their prime
Keeping deGrom in here offers us a slight opening...
Keith is on his good behavior after ESPN threw him a bone. The subdued Olbie is a gem.
More like A.J Burnett.
Pretty soon, the Yankees will have at whatever the Mets call a bullpen.
WHY IS COLE ON THIS FUCKING TEAM AND WHY DOES BOONE LEAVE HIM IN TO DO THIS EVERY GODAMN TIME
we were stumbling tonight, now our pitching has fallen flat on it's face and can't get up
I guess keeping Cole in there gave the Mets an opening.
But can the Mets' bullpen hold a 4-run lead? Unclear.
No. Cole and Green continue to be relied on and they continue to get slammed. This is all Boone. He has no idea how or when to use them.
Sans Judge and Sanchez, maybe.
lol, who would you have sent in ? Gray ? blaming Boone for this is just silly...
Kontos has two World Series rings, if that floats your boat.
He was really really good for a few months, but yeah, time to move on, I think.
just what I was wondering. not like this was an unwinnable game at all down 5-3.
It's the 7th inning man. Are Robertson, Britton, Betances, and Chapman only allowed to pitch with a lead? Cole is absolute garbage. He doesn't belong on this roster. He had a great run for a few weeks and now he's exactly who he has been for entire career.
"A.J. Cole’s last five outings: 8.64 ERA, 8.1 ip, 14 h, 11 r, 8 er, 5 bb, 13 k, four doubles, four homers."
They're letting DeGrom come out for the 7th with 104 pitches under his belt. Not exactly a vote of confidence in that pen.
the current Chapman in the 6th would have been a sight to behold and Britton is a 50/50 shot anywhere atm
Looks like DeGrom's Season high is 116 pitches. Maybe he will break that here.
Sons of Darryl Strawberry have to be screaming about Callaway stealing outs. Oh wait, only we do that about Alex Cora haha
They don’t have Familia any more, for one. A’s have been collecting relievers.
Mets may be on a mission to get Degrom the win so he draws even at 7 and 7. I thought they’d give him the third out there.
Here comes the LOOGY.
I don't think there is any way that pen gets through the bottom of the 8th unscathed. Best case scenario is they limit Stanton-Didi-Hicks-Andujar to 2 runs.
They had to pull him. It took him 114 pitches to get through 6 2/3.
Familia was gruesome in yesterday's A's v. LAA, gave up two runs in the eighth.
Any pitcher can have a rough game, you know, even CK. Familia’s ERA for Oakland is 1.64 over 9 games. Getting off topic here.
Let's see. How far will Stanton's HR travel this inning?
Hey Seth Lugo is pitching. If the Mets blow it maybe we can blame LUGO
So many Red Sox fans on the Yankee game thread tonight. You would think this is a Red Sox board, or something.
Or that there's no Sox game tonight.
The three prongs of Sox fans on the Yankee game thread:
1) No Sox game
2) Yankees getting their asses kicked
3) Sox comfortably in 1st
A perfect storm.
It's going to be quite stormy in the coming weeks.
Speaking for myself, DeGrom pitching tonight might have also been a contributing factor.
