I'm paying more attention to the Mets these days - due in part to this thread - but even I was aware before this that Cespedes seems to be injury-prone? I wish B-R had injury stats but they don't.

This reminds me of a cool feature in OOTPB where, on the Finances Page, you can see your players ranked by $/WAR. The most Cost Efficient players are those with the lowest $/WAR. Of course, salary is a factor on one side while WAR is on the other and you need to play in games to accumulate WAR.

At $29MM, I bet Yo would not even be on the list (which only goes up to 8 players on my screen).

Yo's Topps card is copied onto all sorts of medical books. -.-

The best part of today's dreadful 12-1 clubbing at the beaks of the Blue Jays - aside of the 18-minute rain delay that was not a rain delay in the bottom of the third - was that during the seventh and eighth innings, Gary Cohen and Ron Darling went through their stash of random baseball cards and remembered players from days long gone.

And I learned today that in '97 the Mets' Dave Mlicki finished a 9-hit shutout over the other team in town in Yankee Stadium by striking out some guy named Jeter. What was the given name again? Derrick? Delmon? Desmond? Something like that.

I think his name was Didi. Didi Jeter. No?

Unrelated #1: why are newborn baby boys not named Doyle anymore? Or Dirk? Dunbar?

Unrelated #2: something like a 9-hit shutout sounds amazingly weird today. In today's game teams routinely score five runs with seven hits, four of those dingers. Was baseball better back then? Was it more fun? Less fun?

I have no idea, because for the longest time my only exposure to baseball was the baseball scene near the end of The Naked Gun, and it took me about 15 years to realize that the partial scenes don't add up given that at one point a team hits a grand slam with four players dancing across home plate, but on the scoreboard nobody ever scores four runs in an inning.

Sorry. My mind is adrift.

Well, it's Juan and Yo together again on the DL, just like old times.

Yo + Juan = Johan

Pattern discovered!

Is it possible Vargas might actually turn out to be okay??

No.

I also wrote this somewhere else today: with the way everybody's lauding Mesoraco since getting washed aboard and how he seems to have a hand in what scant offense we have most of the time, I am pretty sure he has at most one week left before a ghastly broken femur takes him out for the season.

Because Mets.

They sure hustled to sign somebody else's leftover breakfast.

Y'know, we could give the at-bats to Nimmo (not that I am very fond of him) now that Cespedes and Lagares and 21 other outfielders are injured, or, well, y'know, sign somebody else's leftover breakfast to bat .169 for the next three weeks before releasing him again.

Although in the horror replacement signings pool, my pick was Rick Ankiel, again.

Paws up - who knew with two on in the 10th and Ramos coming in that the game would end on a walkoff walk?

(raises paw)

Although part of me hoped for a grand slam rocket that would somehow enwhirl Ramos in its draft and carry him all the way to Lake Michigan, never to be heard from again.

I dozed off for like ten minutes, not a minute more, I swear, and somehow the Mets coughed up some blood and six runs in the meantime.

At least I am as befuddled as A.J. Launchpad here, judging from the dead-eyed look he sports as he is sitting in the dugout with his ERA approaching the sum of his age and uniform number.

Like Vargas, y'know.

Ah, this team.

I read about this. I don't know how I would be as a major league manager, or as a baseball coach on any level, but this is one thing that would drive me bonkers. For a professional level pitcher to give up walks like that when the game is on the line tells me that the guy does not have the courage to take charge of the plate and challenge the hitter. That guy would be on thin ice with me.

Two years of rehab for David Wright as of yesterday. He's still doing the work at 35. There are some guys that you root for in this game no matter what uniform they wear.

Wright is probably the main character in the enormous Greek tragedy that is the 2010s Mets; one in which by the end everybody has either died or slept with their mother.

I also watched the entirety of the Mets' series in Milwaukee. I lived, barely.

This game isn't that much better. They just made two outs on the bases in a single inning, and they literally don't know who will start the night game of the double header.

Nifty times.

DeGrom's got them guts!!

Now the waiting game begins for Familia to allow a hit, a walk, drill a guy, and then surrender a slam to Freddie Freeman.

Or Sam Freeman, for ****'s sake.

And as Seth Lugo surrendered the game-ending moonshot, the great Gary Cohen exclaimed "Charlie Culberson with his first home run in TWO years! [...] Can you believe it!?"

No, I can't. I just ****ing can't.

There are no words.

There are... no words.
