Mets Game notes for May 17 vs. Braves

Hello! The site has been broken most of the day. It seemed to break after I commented on a certain somebody. Maybe I messed with the wrong person and that person sent me a message! Anyway it seems to be behaving now, maybe.

My friends the Mets sent me some game notes today!

INF Jeff McNeil has been placed on the 10-Day IL with a left hamstring strain.

OF Michael Conforto has been placed on the 10-Day IL with a right hamstring strain.

RHP Seth Lugo has been transferred to the 60-Day IL.

OF Khalil Lee has been recalled from Triple-A Syracuse.

OF Johneshwy Fargas has been selected from Triple-A Syracuse…He will wear #81. Media Goon had a custom Fargas made at Stitches today, just to mix things up and keep the joke fresh.

Media Goon does not like your jokes.

With a team leading 6 HRs, Vulgar Pete Alonso leads the team! Pete is tied for 61st best in The Major League Baseball along with famous baseball players Randal Grichuk and others!

On this date in 2012 Ike Davis was batting .164 with five home runs. Ike Davis is only 34 years old now.

Dominic Smith is batting .304/.385/.370 with five runs, three doubles, six RBI, five walks and a .754 OPS in 14 games this month… This compares to a .222/.340/.333 slash line with four extra-base hits in 20 games in April…In his last five games, he has four RBI.

Tomorrow’s starter is TBA.

Is Mets owner Steve Cohen laying ground work for excuses?

I don’t want to hear it. There are no excuses now. There is one acceptable outcome and it is winning the World Series. Anything else is failure. No excuses Steve.

You’re banged up because some maniacs let Jake throw 100 in March. I said it loudly at the time so I’m not second guessing.

You’re banged up because someone let Jake pitch twice while he wasn’t right.

You’re banged up because someone thought they could get McNeil some at bats this weekend.

I want accountability and I am done with excuses. You’re the owner. Fix this. Don’t tell me it’s gonna be a tough week. Fix it.

Mets Game Notes for Sunday May 16 vs. Rays

The Mets have taught me not to sit down waiting for game notes that may never come, so I will make my own.

PETE ALONSO homered in his first straight game  Pete has hit six homer runs this season, tying him for 60th best in The Major League Baseball with famous baseball payers R. Grichuk and M. Garver who are actual people.

With SIX home runs in the Mets’ first 33 games, Pete is on pace to hit an amazing 29 home runs this season.

This is Pete’s third MLB season.  In Ike Davis’ third MLB season, Ike hit 32 home runs.

Today’s starting pitcher MARCUS STROMAN had a baby attack earlier this year when weather conditions were not perfect.  Fortunately for Marcus, today’s game is in a dome.

The Mets come into today’s game 18-13 with a half game lead over the Phillies.  The Mets have won 7 of their last 10!

After teh game, the Mets will take a torturous 90 minute chartered flight from Tampa to Atlanta where they will sleep in a 5 star hotel with catering, and then have to play a night game on Monday after a day game on Sunday, with all that travel in between.  Life is hard in the major leagues.
