    In The Books! Postgame Show: Game 16

    Jacob deGrom didn't have his Sunday best, but the hands-down, most dominant pitcher in baseball gutted it out as the Mets defeated the Marlins 4-2.

    Gimme Gimmy Gimenez has officially become "our guy," collecting 3 more hits and doing the little things that Mets' fans love to see. We had some shaky moments with Edwin but the close-er did what had to to get out of it and hand it over to Mr. Reliable, Seth Lugo.

    BONUS: Special Call-in guest Mrs. Clancy, best cheese steaks in LBI, ranking gum and lemon lime sodas.

    Mets beat the Marlins 8-4 in David Peterson's Citi Field debut. The lefty continues to show that he has what it takes to pitch in this rotation and despite a few early runs, settled down for the W.

    JD Double Davis Davis extended his hit streak to 12 while driving in 4, Michael Conforto went big fly and Pete Alonso hit a baseball that went supersonic on its way to putting a hole in the outfield wall.

    When this team is clicking and the bullpen is solid its scary to think about what they are capable of, now it's just going to come down too consistency. We've got day game deGrom on the mound today so we'll just pray for runs and hope we can take the next step.

    Jared Hughes

    Jared Hughes has officially become our guy. Mad Dog jumped on with the guys to talk about last night's wild play, his infamous GIF with J.T. Realmuto, why he sprints, his crazy pictures and what it's like playing for the New York Mets.

    The Mets lose to the Marlins 4-3 in typical Mets fashion so the guys turned to Frank the Tank to serenade them with his misery.

    The team made a Single-A pitcher look like a seasoned vet, Jared Hughes was hit by a sniper trying to field a ground ball and the team did just enough to make us believe before stomping on our hearts.

    WGB #59: Mr. Brightside

    Tropical storms and no electricity are a walk in the park compared to rooting for this team. After several attempts, the pod is live!

    KFC is finally looking on the bright side and opening himself up to hurt again. Since the season is fraudulent any and uncle Stevie is coming, we’re just trying to have a good time and watch some baseball.

    The team crammed a bracket’s worth of Mets misery into the first 2 weeks and put us in a blender, but now we’re looking at this season with clear eyes and a readiness to relapse.

    Gimme Jimmy Gimenez has been a revelation thus far and at 21-years-young, he is making a great case to play everyday. In fact, his smooth fielding and capable bat are even giving us flashes of Reyes.

    Speaking of Jose, Jose, Jose, we discuss his retirement, his impact on the Mets and how his off-the-field actions soured his image with the fanbase.

    The guys also pay homage to OG MetsBlog, do a deep dive into Point 72 (Stevie’s firm) turning away new business and declare once and for all that ARod needs to get out of the bidding war and CONCEDE TO COHEN.

    So far we’ve had blown saves and players injured, missing and possibly murdered, but it can't get much worse right? We gotta believe the Mets will start trending in the right direction, but if this team has taught us anything, it's to expect the unexpected.

    Mets defeat the Nats 3-1 on a stellar performance by Rick Porcello. The former Cy Young winner finally showed up and put together an impressive 7 inning outing before handing it over to Seth Lugo for the 6-out save.

    The defense was flying around the diamond, we've finally got a center fielder that can field his position and JD Davis was putting on a show at the hot corner.

    Dom Smith still can't get a look at first base, but as long as he keeps hitting in the big spots, he needs to be in the lineup every day.
