From SB Nation’s “Talking Chop” Blog:
“Going to the game tomorrow, considering I’m 16, is wearing a braves shirt a bad idea?”
“Nah. I used to live in Brooklyn. Always wore my Braves stuff. There might be a bit of ribbing, but Mets fans are actually pretty great.”
“OMFG, I can already hear that asshole barking.”
“I am beyond ready for Gattis to be a masher again at the plate.”
“Don’t hold your breath”
“But, I’m already turning blue.”
“Not sure I want to see Latroy “Cy” Hawkins again after I had just finished repressing my memories of his last sighting.”
“Awfully quiet in here tonight.”
“Jeez so I know we all gained lots of respect for EYJr. for his class with regard to Huddy, but please don’t score”
“that is probably the equivalent of a BJ RBI single to the other team…”
“ike hitting .300 .477 .500 .977 since the all-star break, so nope”
“I am getting tired of seeing Ike Davis get big hits against the Braves. “
“wheeler has stupid-looking facial hair growing on his chin like dillon gee”
“Anybody else watching the Mets’ telecast?”
” I generally like their announcers”
“Definitely the best commentators in the NL East.”
“I can’t believe you guys. Yes, they’re the best in the NL East, but I really can’t stand them overall”
“I was just gonna say that their announcers are raving about Wheeler’s stuff today, so that’s a bad sign for us”
“Christ, Janish is horrible.”
“Janish getting very close to the Janish Line”
“Not looking forward to facing Harvey and Wheeler for the next 5 years……”
“STOP SWINGING AT EVERY PITCH”
“WTF are you swinging at?”
“Gattis is being an asshole.”
“eric young got the best fit theme song on MLB lol”
“Wheeler is on his game tonight.”
“Ike Davis First home run off K. Kawakami”
“It was a SHOT too. http://wapc.mlb.com/play/?content_id=7610099&c_id=mlb“
“WOW. That was crushed”
“Why do the Braves struggle to score at Citi Field?”
“kid’s got nasty stuff”
“It appears we forgot to pack our bats again. Or did they get misrouted on their way to New York?”
“On the bright side the Mets will be into their pen soon”
“Whatever happened to us putting up 5 or 6 runs in one inning?”
“It’s so quiet in here.”
“This offense is offensive tonight and not in a good way”
“Road blues so far with a dash of Wheeler”
“McCann’s arm… garbage.”
******* **** **** ****!!!!”
“well **** me runnin’!”
“B.J. Upton for Marlon Byrd? sigh”
“I wonder what the deal with Citi Field is for the Braves this season. It has been a tough place for them to play.”
“The smell of warm piss all around the ballpark distracts us.”
“And to think I stepped away from plunging the toilet to watch part of this game.”
“Did you see a brave’s win circling the bowl?”
“If we could just get to the Mets BP, we could still pull out a W”
“Damn, what have the Mets been doing to our ‘pen of late?”
“Yay, Ayala.. Pls don’t let Byrd kill us again.”
“I fully expect this to not end well”
“and THAT’S WHY we need Ayala in the playoffs you guys. Veteran smoothness in high pressure situations”
“Gattis is bad right now.”
“that ball was murdered”
********* Fredi. and Ayala, too.”
“Why is Ike Davis so good against the Braves and why was Ayala still in the game?”
“That was pretty impressive right there.”
“Somewhere, in The Braves organization is a AAA team with Ayala’s name on it.”
“This guy kills me…How in the holy hell has LaTroy “Freakin” Hawkins stayed in the league sooooooo long?”
“this is horse *******
“Man Hawkins never ages”
“In Yoda years”

BEST OF MAXIM
When this season started, everyone pointed to the Mets’ outfield as a major weakness. At the time, everyone wasn’t wrong. Coming out of Florida, the “set” lineup was Lucas Duda in left field, Collin Cowgill in center and a combination of Mike Baxter, Marlon Byrd and Jordany Valdespin manning right. Not exactly a group that will make you forget the power, speed and...
David Wright has said that without a doubt he will be back on the field in September for the New York Mets. For the sake of the Mets and the 2014 season, he should let his injured hamstring have extra time to heal for the touted 2014 New York Mets.
I know that David Wright isn’t the type of player to sit out if he feels like he is in playing shape; it’s one of the many reasons...
The worst case scenario of any batter is that they will be standing at the plate when a fastball gets away from the pitcher and hits them square in the head or face. This is, of course, the worst case scenario for any pitcher as well. Nobody can adequately prepare to be hit in this way. The Braves, Mets and their respective fans watched this scenario play out Wednesday when Atlanta...
As reported a few hours ago by our own Robert Murray, Jason Heyward's jaw was broken in two places when he was hit by Jonathan Niese fastball today. Jason is due for surgery tomorrow on his fractured jaw back in Atlanta.
But what exactly does this mean for the Braves? They have already had 6 season ending surgeries this season, and despite it all, they have MLB's best...
Dillon Gee and the Mets made their one-day stop in Minnesota today to settle some unfinished business, and the outcome was a good one to say the least.
The Mets struck first against Twins’ starter Kyle Gibson. Eric Young Jr. led off the game with a single, and after subsequent singles by Daniel Murphy, Ike Davis and Andrew Brown, the Amazins held a 1-0 lead.
The Twins may have...
I read a comment this morning in our threads from one reader asking another why he left out Gee in his projected 2014 rotation. In addition to MMO, I spend a lot of time reading comment threads at MetsBlog and on other Mets Forums and I see that a lot. Mostly I see future Mets rotation projections looking a lot like this:
This is one reason why social media can be pretty cool these days. It’s always neat to see stuff we as fans don’t get to see every day. In this example, veteran Mets’ reliever LaTroy Hawkins snaps a little photo on the team plane following a win in Minneapolis this afternoon.
Hawk posted it on his Instagram feed, and it immediately became a runaway hit with Mets fans everywhere...
This is exactly why I was not real interested in playing baseball as a kid (that and I sucked). Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward was hit in the face with pitch during today's game against the New York Mets.
If it sounds like it hurts, well--it does. The poor man was spitting blood when he was helped off the field.
He was taken to the hospital for further examination...

Atlanta Braves right-fielder Jason Heyward suffered a broken jaw after being hit by a pitch against the New York Mets on Wednesday, and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. Injuries are a part of baseball, and the Braves have certainly had their share of them this season, but this one really hurts.
Losing players like Tim Hudson, Eric O'Flaherty, Jonny Venters, and Ramiro Pena for the season were
The New York Mets have plans on keeping the recently promoted catcher Travis d’Arnaud at the major league-level through season’s end after current starting catcher John Buck had recently left on paternity leave. Some were wondering if d’Arnaud would get sent back down once Buck returns but that may not be the case as the Mets plan to give d’Arnaud plenty of work. It is a...
19-year-old shortstop Gavin Cecchini‘s 16 game hit streak came to an end last night after he went 0-3 in game one of a double header against the Staten Island Yankees. Cecchini was one game shy of tying the Cyclone team record set by Lucas Duda in 2007.
The Mets top pick in the 2012 First Year Player Draft, Cecchini is hitting .302 this season with 10 RBI’s and 2 stolen bases...

The Braves lead the Mets by 17.5 games in the NL East and own the best record in baseball but Zack Wheeler hasn’t given them an inch.
The young righthander earned the win in a 5-3 Mets victory over Atlanta on Tuesday at Citi Field and improved to 3-0 with a 2.89 ERA in three tries against the first place Braves this season. Overall he is 6-2 with a 3.49 ERA.
