SLACKISH REACTION: I was watching Ken Burns’ Vietnam doc when 7p rolled around and I chose the doc over what the Mets were offering. Fantastic documentary and really illustrates how frustrating the entire thing must have been. Vietnam, not the Mets.
Anyway, I then checked out the first half of the USWNT (soccer) before popping on the Mets and saw not only the Mets were winning, but that it was the 7th inning and not yet 9pm. However the Mets lost in extras. I’d tell you about it but neither of us cares and the only source even covering the Mets these days is MLB.com. Seriously do a Google for “Mets” and watch what comes up.
The Mets have a day game today because the Marlins really really like empty stadiums.
Today’s stupid article link mentions people who won’t be the next Mets manager including Mike Piazza. It’s so bad that it gets the link.
FLUSHING, N.Y., September 14, 2017 – The New York Mets announced today that they are partnering with Queens Borough President Melinda Katz to hold a Hurricane Relief Drive next week at Citi Field to help those affected in Houston and Florida.
The Mets will be accepting donations at Citi Field next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (September 19-21) from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. in front of the Jackie Robinson Rotunda.
Fans driving to the ballpark can enter via the Official Lot G on 126th street and proceed straight to the fire lane in front of the Rotunda. Mets staff will be on hand to unload items from vehicles.
Donations will be delivered to the Houston Food Bank, which provides 800,000 meals a year in southeast Texas, and Mustard Seed, a community outreach organization serving Fort Pierce, Florida.
“Mets fans and all New Yorkers want to help the Hurricane victims in Texas and Florida just like the rest of the country helped us pull through Superstorm Sandy,” Mets COO Jeff Wilpon said.
“Mets fans and people throughout Queens and the entire New York metropolitan area have not forgotten how the rest of the country supported us in the wake of Sandy,” said Queens Borough President Melinda Katz. “That’s why we want to give back to those who have suffered due to Harvey and Irma. This hurricane relief donation drive we are hosting with the Mets at Citi Field will be a great opportunity for New Yorkers to help our fellow Americans who are in need.”
The following items are in need by both communities and will be accepted at the drive:
Canned ready-to-eat items with pull tops: vegetables, fruit
Protein in pouches or pull-top cans: tuna, beef stew, chili, canned chicken
Once again the offense let Matt Harvey down, scoring just one run. How is he supposed to win games if they don’t score for him? The Next Seaver’s career record fell to 39-39 making him a lifetime .500 pitcher with just three Harvey Days left!
To quote TDK himself, “It’s terrible. It’s not fun.”
SLACKISH REACTION: I was working and peeked at the score and saw TDK had given up 2 runs in 3 ip and had the weird, “Hey that’s no so bad!” reaction. Then at 9:30 I checked again and was like WTF and went on with my night which consisted of immediately falling asleep.
I have noticed that even @mets gives up most nights. They usually start all pumped and share highlights orly on. Then as the Mets get their asses kicked they go silent for hours at a time. Here, look….
If you want to know where Mets season is right now , 6:37am, do a Google News search for Mets. Nothing new. Nobody wrote anything. Total complete Garbage Time.
