With last night’s rain-delayed game officially having ended at 1:22 a.m., the Mets and Braves are poised to become the first teams to have three games completed on the same calendar date since the Cincinnati Reds on Aug. 23, 1996. That day, the Reds finished a game in Atlanta at 1:47 a.m., then played a doubleheader in Miami.
Dillon Gee drove in a run and took a scoreless effort into the ninth before surrendering a walk-off two-run homer to Freddie Freeman as the Braves beat the Mets, 2-1, at 1:22 a...

I noticed a few things during Zack Wheeler’s start I’d like to point out. A few things impressed me and there are some things that are noteworthy after doing some research:
Of Wheeler’s seven strikeouts, six were swinging and it was only the opposing pitcher that took a called third strike.

According to Brooksbaseball.net, here is the fastball breakdown...
Zack Wheeler is excited about his big league debut with the New York Mets, especially since he'll be pitching not far from where he grew up.
Wheeler is a native of suburban Atlanta and will have plenty of family and friends in the stands at Turner Field on Tuesday night, when he pitches the second game of a doubleheader against the Braves.
The 23-year-old right-hander is one...
Now that he's about to make his highly anticipated debut with the New York Mets, Zack Wheeler will rely on some advice he got from a minor league coach.

Terry Collins watched on from the dugout as Matt Harvey dominantly no-hit the Atlanta Braves for six innings on Tuesday afternoon. The Dark Knight of Gotham ended the game with a career-high 13 strikeouts on 116 pitches, but Collins almost mismanaged the game out of the Mets’ hands.
While Harvey has indisputably been among the best pitchers in baseball by every conceivable metric...
From SB Nation’s “Talking Chop” Blog:
“i would say at least the mets have their B lineup out there too but i can never really tell with them”
“The Mets don’t have an A lineup”
“No Valdespin “

It was nice after the "Super Tuesday" doubleheader to forget a lot of our problems and just allow ourselves to dream. And to bathe in the virtual beer that Zack Wheeler felt for real because let's face it ... when one gets doused with cheap beer, we all get doused in cheap beer.
But we feel the bad times too. Oh boy, do we feel the bad times. For example, when...
