At least the Mets had the decency to lose in nine innings after a four hour rain delay.
So much for your imaginary concept of "momentum". I don't suppose there's a chance that the Braves could acquire Carlos Marmol in the next few minutes?
The Mets could now go 0-3 in a span of 24 hours thanks to Freddie Freeman's walk-off dinger off Dillon Gee giving the Braves a 2-1 win. I had no problem with Dillon Gee staying in the game with a one run lead in the ninth. It was his to lose. And he lost, but he lost with honor. But mostly, he lost because he wears "New York" on his chest. In orange. And because the only runs that are given to the starting pitchers are the ones that he gets for himself. F*cking Freddie Freeman. F*cking lineup. F*cking Bob Costas and his Western Civilization.
This is what Zack Wheeler has to look forward to tomorrow. Good luck, kid. You'll need it. Dammit.

BEST OF MAXIM
There was a time when Carlos Marmol was a reliable closer for the Chicago Cubs, but that was over three years ago. Now, it is an adventure each time he takes the mound. He no longer is the team’s closer, as that belongs to Kevin Gregg, but he was called upon in yesterday’s game to get the final three outs with a 3-0 lead. The Cubs lost 4-3. Teammate Alfonso Soriano has seen enough...
What a punch in the gut… After a rain delay of three hours and 43 minutes, Dillon Gee took the mound and fired eight shutout innings against the Braves as the Mets took a 1-0 lead heading into the ninth. But it was all for naught as first baseman Freddie Freeman crushed a two-run, walk-off homer to give the Braves a dramatic 2-1 win to take the first game of the five game series...
ST. LOUIS -- The Cubs were three outs away from heading to Busch Stadium on a rare four-game winning streak Sunday afternoon.
Then came Carlos Marmol. There went the Cubs' momentum.
Marmol gave up four runs on two homers while getting only one out -- that on a sacrifice -- to turn a 3-0 lead into a 4-3 walk-off loss against the lowly Mets.
Even normally soft-spoken left...
Normally when a pitcher throws a complete game on the road, it means they won. However, Mets fans know better than to think they are anything close to normal.
One night after the Mets continued the downward spiral of humanity by celebrating a game they didn’t deserve to win, Karma reared her ugly head and forced some the Mets’ own medicine down their throat.
Dillon Gee had perhaps...
The Mets start a four game set with the Braves tonight with the key day being the double-header tomorrow that is also Harvey/Wheeler Day but before we can get to that, we have a Dillon Gee game. Yesterday the Mets somehow won. At points yesterday the defense was so poor that it doesn’t even qualify under the word defense. Anyway Byrd hit a solo homer to lead off the bottom of the...
From SB Nation’s “Bleed Cubbie Blue” Blog:
“Cubs-like fielding detected”
“That’s worse than the Cubs or the White Sox.”
“3 missed throws in a row.”
“practicing for the Broadway show”
“Wow. That…was just classic Mets fielding. Fantastic”
“I think the Mets just added one of their top plays of the year to their season retrospective reel.”
The Atlanta Braves waited a long time to get going.
Finally, at 1:22 a.m., Freddie Freeman gave them a most improbable victory.
Freeman hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning to ruin a brilliant performance by Dillon Gee, leading the Braves past the Mets 2-1 Monday night in a game that was delayed nearly four hours by rain.
Gee (5-7) drove in New York's lone run and totally...
Today, of course, is Fathers’ Day, and as such I had a good time with the family and especially with my son. The wife will give me something else later (ha!) but we just finished watching Monsters, Inc., and playing Stratego and some card games. It was very relaxing. It’s almost as if the Cubs hadn’t lost a game and our world hadn’t suddenly ended.
That post, surprisingly...
Kirk Nieuwenhuis crushed a Carlos Marmol fastball for a three-run, walk-off home run to give the New York Mets a 4-3 win over the Chicago Cubs at Citi Field Sunday.
As is the tradition of getting a shaving cream pie in the face during the post-game interview, the Mets' hero did not go unscathed. The only difference was old Newie got a real apple pie in the puss.
