    Re: Atlanta Braves discussion

    -Good start to the series.

    -Its always nice to pop an overhyped Mets pitcher around.

    - Fried pitched another gem, only for the bullpen to make an unnecessary close game.

    - Melancon did close it out pretty well

    - Anyone voting for Bellinger for MVP is either dumb or extremely biased.

    wouldn't surprise me judging by the matchups. We miss Kershaw by a game

    What is with Melancon and the covering of the mound?

    And I agree Acuna should be running away with the MVP but the only people even mentioning it is Braves fans and Braves media.

    I think he is doing it to be a jerk. He is basically trying to confuse the hitter of what a strike is by where he is on the mound. Because if you notice he is not in the same position every pitch.

    The Marlins just called him on it. I’m surprised that the Mets didn’t since they were still very much in the game with the top of the order up.

    If the Mets don’t make the WC then their manager and GM need to go because this is one of the 5 best teams in the NL.

    Dumb fielding and dumb pitching is probably going to give us the L tonight unless something changes in a hurry

    If I was a Mets fan I would be throwing stuff at my tv right now. Letting Matz after retiring 14 straight hit while having every intention of putting Lugo in the bottom half is the dumbest managerial decision I’ve seen all year.

    You aren’t fooling anyone when the #4 hitter is the first batter coming up.

    I’m speechless. I just hope our bullpen doesn’t forgive their manager for his stupidity.

    It is nice seeing someone else's bullpen screw up.

    Yeah it is, but trying to trick Donaldson with a new pitcher was pretty stupid. If Matz’s pitch count was an issue, and Lugo was going out regardless then there was no reason Matz should’ve been paraded around to hit and run. Granted he hit and scored, but unless everyone on the bench is sick or hurt then there is no reason the pitcher should’ve hit unless you are riding that horse one more inning.

    The Mets are desperately trying to steal a win, and they are stupidly doing it. But then again this is a manager that couldn’t get his lineup in the right order that we are talking about.


    But it is refreshing to see someone else implode late in the game other than us.

    Usually when you say “battle of the bullpens” you think of a long pitching battle that is going to be under 6 runs, not a never ending heart burn of finding out who has a worse bullpen.

    Between Carmago and Culbertson I have no idea who makes worse mistakes at shortstop. Culbertson is a better outfielder
