Luckily the Braves have gone cold.

After saying that getting caught by the Braves isn’t necessarily a collapse by the Mets have gone 5-7 vs the Nats, Pirates, Cubs, Marlins. So yeah. Fuck it. Maybe we’re entering collapse territory.

Scherzer due back soon.

Gone cold?

West Coast Road Trip is over. 13 games Home and Way with the Phillies and Nats, starting with 3 at home vs Phillies. 1/2 Game out of first after the Mets got swept at home by the Cubs.

Manufacturing runs can help, but when Alonso and Lindor don't hit the Mets have no offense. I would say Mets schedule is easier but you just went 5-7 against losing teams so not sure that matters.

They lost 4 of 6 after winning 8 straight. I think we can all agree that’s cooling off. Relax, I’m not talking shit or trying to dismiss the Braves. They’re a great team. They had a chance to grab control of the division given the Mets struggles lately and they didn’t. Likewise, this was a huge missed opportunity for the Mets. The Braves might not lose 4 of 6 again this season. It wasn’t meant as a diss. The Mets are very lucky to still be in 1st.

Lindor and Alonso are super important, but I think we really miss Marte. McNeil has been on a tear but the rest of the reliable hitters have been cold. Bottom the lineup has actually stating coming around recently. Nido and McCann are showing signs of life at C and Eduardo Escobar has been hot since coming back from injury. But I don’t have much confidence that those guys are suddenly turning into + value hitters at this point. All season long, the Mets offensive strength has been getting on base and manufacturing runs rather than smashing HRs. Which is fine. But aside from Alonso there is very limited power. Top of the lineup has gone cold and that’s been the bread and butter all year.

The rest of the month will be fun and stressful.

https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/34542980/radio-host-doug-gottlieb-admits-made-false-claim-freddie-freeman-contract-talks-atlanta-braves?platform=amp

This is like a week old but I didn’t see it till just now. Basically Doug Gottlieb lied about Freddie Freeman’s agent not telling him about the Braves final offer. I’m not gonna say “I told you so” because I did not in fact tell anybody so. But this story seemed sketchy as hell all along. Why would Doug Gottlieb of all people be breaking this news? He’s not a baseball reporter. He’s not even a sports reporter. He’s a basketball analyst and radio host. Hardly the type of person that would be privy to this kinda news/rumor. And beyond that, why would an agent working on commission not tell his client about a better offer? Also Gottlieb claimed Freeman had fired his agent which doesn’t seem to be true according to the linked article.

Man. Doug Gottlieb is just a total buffoon

We all know next weekend in Atlanta will determine the division. Loser gets Wild Card, win that and best of 5 against the Dodgers. Winner gets some rest for their bullpens and a matchup with winner of Cards/Padres

Judge is overrated. Wouldn’t have hit 50 in Ruth’s era.

Also. It’s always funny to me when I remember that the of the other 5 guys to hit 60 or more HRs in a single season (not counting Judge since he’s still active), only 1 is in the HOF

yes what he is doing is impressive, not really paying attention to AL the year. I will say Judge picked the best time to go off and I assume he is a Boras guy so he will be trying to get paid this offseason.

Judge rejected a huge contract in the off-season. Don’t remember the details of it. But yeah. He bet on himself and he’s gonna make the Yankees pay for it.

Braves and Mets are now tied each playing bottom feeding teams tonight.

Means if one team loses and the other wins the division could be over if the team that wins sweeps the 3 game series this weekend. Ian is going to play a major part though. Lots of rain and possible wind though the track has shifted more towards coast. Possibilty of a split doubleheader on Sunday. Also wonder if they could postpone Mondays games with Marlins and Nats to get this series in. Would mean a doubleheader in both or canceling a game for both since it would not be an advantage for either team. One will win the Division the other will be top wild card team. Both teams should be at or above 100 wins.

Yeah Ian is gonna make things extra interesting.

I have no faith in whoever is gonna be the Mets 4th starter in the playoffs. Carrasco has a 6+ ERA vs teams with a winning record. Walker is slightly better but doesn’t seem to have the stamina that Carrasco has. As long as they’re healthy, degrom, Scherzer, Bassit is a great 1-2-3. But things get really squirrelly with the #4 guy.

^thats why the Mets would have an easier time with Dodgers in a 5 game series versus a 7, so go ahead and take the WC

So I guess weather won’t be much factor for this series after all.

So Mets clinch with a sweep.

Mets win 2/3, they’ll have a 2 game lead with 3 to play (vs Nats).

Mets win 1/3, they’ll be tied with 3 to play. But in the event of a tie at the top of the standings the Mets would have the tiebreaker.

Mets get swept, they’ll be down a game.

Basically, if the Mets go 4-2 (which would mean beating the Braves at least once), they’ll win the division.
