With God and Clarke Schmidt on our side...

...We will show the New York Mets we're the less pathetic New York ballclub!

Doesn't look like the Jints will be a source of any solace this year. P.U.

JM said...

One of the ESPN announcers, after they talked about the 13 game win streak followed by a 3-11 stretch, noted that they got worse as they got healthier.

No kidding.

Anonymous Bosch said...

Schmidt? What kind of name is that for a baseball player? Is he forming an axis with Rizzo and Higashioka?

TheWinWarblist said...

Love the Axis of Evil Empire reference AB.

Axis of Evil Empire.

Good one.

Has anyone noticed that Toronto scored 44 runs this weekend? 44?

TheWinWarblist said...

How does one walk a minor league pitcher who's last plate appearance was in 2014 when he was at Alatoona High School in Georgia?

TheWinWarblist said...

Criminy it's gonna be another bullpen game. I just can't. It's September and I cannot any more.

Anonymous Bosch said...

Schmidt has taken second! Yastrzemski better watch his back!

TheWinWarblist said...

Yes, AB, I did. They are a bunch on hitting fools. Somehow they have a Bichette AND a Guerrero. Before you know it they'll have a Little Edgar Martinez. Maybe a Sheffield Jr? Why not a fucking Big Papi Jr too!!!

HAVE YOU SEEN WHAT WE'RE FIELDING!?!?!!

Pocono Steve said...

Torres the Terrible.

TheWinWarblist said...

I wouldn't care about Torres' fielding if he had 44 HR like Vlad Jr!!!!!

Pocono Steve said...

Alas, Torres may have been a juiced-ball wonder.

Funiculì, funiculà!

"Allatoona, Allatoona, Allatoona, Allatoona, Allatoona, Suzyn. Allatoona!"

JM said...

Judge out of the game. No news on why

TheWinWarblist said...

AB, that is a most peculiar reference, and the only reason I know it, is my father use to sing that peculiar tune.

TheWinWarblist said...

Something in his eye? A twig or something?

TheWinWarblist said...

I'd like to point something out, you know, lest it had escaped the rest of the Commentariat.

WE ARE FUCKING LOSING AGAIN!!!

Artificial Lemon Flavorin' said...

OH MY GOODNESS - WHAT IS GOING ON!!!!!?!!!!!

JM said...

Gio sucks. Jesus.

Mets player of the game: Clarke Schmidt.

JM said...

Torres and Urshela can't field anymore.

It’s a standard of Neapolitan Songs since 1880. I once interviewed Luciano Pavarotti to tie-in with his album of Neapolitan Songs and we got into a disagreement about the great tenor Aureliano Pertile (1920s-1930s) and I KNEW I was right. I was dismissed with “Eef you no like you can go FOOK yourself. No more! No more I feenish! I feenish!” I have the digital tape to prove it!

Anonymous Bosch said...

I have to say: Gio looks rather pallid, rather ashen and unwell since his return from the IL. Premature?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

AB,

That is an incredible story. More so that you were arguing about Aureliano Pertile.

Who'd a thunk it?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Gio may have extended coronaticks

JM said...

Sure looks like it.

That Pavarotti tape would go viral, I bet. Think it might be worth something?

TheWinWarblist said...

Pavarotti is an Italian Diva. I'm sure he'd argue with anyone over any thing, any time.

TheWinWarblist said...

Which of the Yankees had plague this year??

Anonymous Bosch said...

Christmas is coming early for us:

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Would it be easier to ask who didn't catch it?

Anonymous Bosch said...

Might be easier to list which Yankees HAVEN’T had a bout with the plague. I’d be more curious to know who refused vaccinations and on what grounds.

13bit said...

I hear that Pavarotti was a side-arming junk baller in a Florida nudist camp softball league in his spare time.

JM said...

Easier to name the ones who didn't.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Is there an echo in here?

...here?

..here?

.here?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

How can Rizzo be out when he didn't even reach the middle of the dirt?

Pocono Steve said...

A competent play from the left side of the infield!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Mr. Haney is warming.

Good night Irene, goodnight.

TheWinWarblist said...

Go ahead. Just plunk him. Load the bases. Go wild!

Pocono Steve said...

I didn't just see Heaney throwing did I?

Anonymous said...

Andrew Heaney again!!!!!!! Seriously what is wrong with these people????

Doug K.

Anonymous Bosch said...

Final words on Pavarotti. He was a pig. Couldn’t learn his roles and cost opera companies millions in cancelling new productions.

The day I interviewed him at his apartment in 1991, he was married to his first wife (who was back in Modena), and ordering his mistress (who he later married) to serve drinks to all present. He perched, looking like Jabba the Hutt, on a sofa with a tablecloth stuck in his collar. I got there as a film crew from the BBC was packing up. The second the sole British woman went to the bathroom, he said “How do you like the tits on her”? Meanwhile his mistress is serving espressos.

At a table rehearsal of Verdi’s rarely-performed “I Lombardi” he got up after the third act and put his coat on and went to leave as everyone else looked on in disbelief. “Where are you going”? “I die. I feenish. I go to dinner.” He had never read the score beyond his death scene and had no idea that Oronte appears as a heavenly vision to his beloved from offstage in the Fourth Act.

JM said...

Oh my Lord. This is insane.

As I said last night: It's Boone's Sisyphus complex.

JM said...

Wow. He got a guy out. Sac fly, but still. Real progress.

Anonymous said...

I'm not a big conspiracy guy. I don't look for "dark" reasons for things but there is something nefarious going on here.

The Heaney Code or maybe he's in cahoots with undersea demons.

Heaney and Cecil!

I just don't understand.

Doug K.

JM said...

Heaney and Cecil... that's great.

JM said...

Gleyber Day!!!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

They're just teasing us.

To borrow Winnie's term:

Fuckers!

Anonymous Bosch said...

Well, that was a nice surprise. Here comes another 4-hour nail-biter.

Judge is … dizzy? Maybe he should consult Clint Frazier, the Red Cyclops.

JM said...

My hangover is so bad, Judge is showing symptoms.

HoraceClarke67 said...

You keep alert out there, Sancho.

And yes, dizziness?

It's a dizzy team, stem to stern.

HoraceClarke67 said...

Huh. Ya think Voit is swinging for the fences or something?

Rufus T. Firefly said...

JM,

I'm feeling the same symptoms.

Now, how could ICS NOT get second on that wild pitch?

Anonymous Bosch said...

No sweet mustard on this Weißwurst!

Anonymous Bosch said...

With every other team completing their games before the Early Bird Special, do you realise that we are – for the moment – OUT of the Wild Card race (by half a game)?

Oh goody: Wandavision!

Anonymous Bosch said...

Way to go, Wanda!

Marc Finkel said...

Close your eyes and hum RIZZZZZZZZO

JM said...

Magic Wanda struck again.

Dodged a DP there. Thanks, Mets.

JM said...

That was fucking Stantonian.

He taunted Lindor. Trash talk in baseball?

Anonymous Bosch said...

I always said it was going to be an Ugly Weekend.

ranger_lp said...

Wow Stanton...this is what happens when you can't throw at players anymore...

I can't blame him to be truthful....

JM said...

The Yankees whistling to tip pitches? What?

JM said...

That was bizarre.

Platoni said...

Fuck, that was beautiful. You know when you wish for something very specific to happen in a game and it happens and then you think toy made it happen? I wished Stanton to hit that homerun and then say something to Lindor. And he FUCKING DID IT! Glorious

That was all me, you guys. Totally made that happen through my awesome mind

JM said...

Good job, Platoni.

Wade has him rattled.

Shit.

Do we seriously need to start focusing on Oakland and Seattle? Sad, sad, sad …

Pocono Steve said...

We suck. But we knew that.

Anonymous said...

There was a fearful symmetry to that last out.

HoraceClarke67 said...

We need to focus on 82 wins—the only thing of consequence that we can win.
