Mets Game Notes
In truth, there’s far less than a half-season left after the All-Star Exhibition — why is that? Currently 47-53 in their first 100 games, the Mets can reach their 90-win goal by going 43-19 through the final 62 ballgames. Impossible? Heck no. Difficult? Yes. That would be a .693 winning percentage; or, they’d have to win roughly 7 out of every 10 games going forward. It would be a heckuva run.
They might have a shot if Jacob deGrom can pitch once every three days, and continue to perform as he has in his last three starts. The young righthander went seven frames again, holding the M’s to one run on five hits and a walk.
I have to admit I fell asleep at some point in the third or fourth inning. I vaguely remember an errant Daniel Murphy throw before fading away into the night. Or maybe that was a dream. Travis d’Arnaud continuing to hit the ball with authority is also stuck in my head.
Fill me in on the rest, OK?
