Rooting for the laundry kinda sucks

I know you’ll all get mad at me but whatever.  I also saw @mediagoon mention he’s trying to unload some seats on Stubhub and the tickets aren’t moving.  I put the TV on night after night (except or Metscation during the Olympics which was great) and I’m bored.  I think I have found the reason why.

I’m not attached to these guys.

Friday, August 26
vs. Philadelphia

Jose Reyes – I know you love him, I didn’t even like him the first time.
Asdrubal Cabrera – whatever
Yoenis Cespedes – sure he’s fun to watch
Neil Walker – replaced my favorite player. I will never feel a bond.
Wilmer Flores – I guess
Jay Bruce – hasn’t exactly Cespedes’d the place
Justin Ruggiano – do I need to explain.
Travis d’Arnaud – I guess.
Bartolo Colon – I love pointing out he’s better than all the studs you market so I shall enjoy him throwing another gem.

Then there’s the Loneys (I tired) and the De Aza’s (I didn’t).  Lugo.  The Gazelle Man.  Whoever the hell is in the bullpen now.

I’m just not attached.

I guess having, you know, David Wright, makes a difference.  Duda is one of us.  Murph was.

This bunch that Terry runs out there every night, and I know its wasn’t the plan (well except exiling Murph which was the plan for 7 years), but it is the product and it’s just kinda Who Cares.

Mets Host Phillies, Marlins & Nats in Pivotal Homestand Beginning this Weekend; Tickets Start From Just $5

So you’re saying there’s a chance?

The Mets brought their bats with them to St. Louis on Monday, mixing a record-breaking moonshot with some small ball to beat the Cardinals, 7-4, in the opening game of the series. Robert Gsellman picked up his first major league win along the way, thinning the Cards’ lead to just 3.5 games for the second Wild Card slot.

Maybe it’s still too soon to talk postseason, but there’s something building in the Mets clubhouse. Yoenis Céspedes has looked like his old self since returning from the disabled list. Asdrúbal Cabrera is showing the defensive range scouts said he no longer had. To put the cherry on top, the pitching staff has weathered the indefinite loss of Steven Matz, who landed on the disabled list last week citing shoulder tightness.

A series win in St. Louis would be a huge momentum swing heading into the upcoming homestand against the Phillies, Marlins and Nationals. And for fans hoping to catch the action in Flushing beginning this weekend, Mets tickets are going for bargain rates on the secondary market.

The Phillies will be in town for three games between Friday and Sunday. As it stands now, MLB tickets on Razorgator across the three-games series start from as low as $8. The weekend affair will see Bartolo Colón and Noah Syndergaard each take the hill for the Mets, who have each pitched masterfully over the last two weeks. Free Shirt Friday, a Matt Harvey bobblehead and a Steven Matz Lunch Bag will be on the promotional docket this weekend. Jon Niese was slated to pitch the final game of the series on Sunday but is expected to be replaced by Gsellman after suffering a knee injury Tuesday night.

The Marlins currently sit just 1.5 games behind the Cardinals for the second Wild Card spot, so their visit to Citi Field at the beginning of next week will be a big one. The four-game stint will be the final time the Marlins come to Queens during the regular season, and fans looking for tickets can find them starting from just $5 throughout the week. Citi Field parking is also available for the cheapest rates on ParkWhiz.com for fans driving to the game.

Ok, we’ve had some time to let it sink in – the Nationals are winning the NL East this season. Even with their huge divisional lead, though, their last trip to Queens in the regular season will be an important series to attend. Tickets for the three-game affair from September 2-4 start from $9 on the secondary market.

The next two weeks will define the season for the Metropolitans. If they can continue their winning ways, there’s every reason to believe that playoff baseball will make its way to Flushing come October.
