Mets Game Notes
Like many of you, I was earning a paycheck while this game occurred, so I have no personal observations to share. Looking at the boxscore, and seeing that Braves starter Kameron Loe allowed 14 baserunners and two homers in 4 1/3 innings, it’s slightly surprising the Mets scored only five — but then, five runs is like ten in the PEDs era, right?
Starting Loe makes me think this was a throwaway game for the Braves, who will be mathematically winning the NL East soon enough. Good that the Mets were able to take advantage.
Also from the boxscore, it looks like Dillon Gee threw another brilliant ballgame. Good for Gee, he’s easy to root for.

Mets Item of the Day
I can’t provide any game insight, but I can offer you a fantastic Mets item. Sticking with the “back to school” theme, how about a set of New York Mets pens? Like the Mets themselves, they’re disposable, and they cost only about four bucks for a set of 5. If you don’t see the picture below to click and buy from Amazon, try this link:
