You can have a tie in a baseball game? Never heard of such a thing

It's never good for a player to get injured but if Gee doesn't get hurt the deGrom goes to the bullpen and who knows if he ever gets a shot a starting

Wow, did not expect them to pick up 4k like that, lets hope we lock this one down and finish this off for deGrom's second win.

So if we win every game for the the rest of this season and the next two, we'd be officially mediocre.


Got it.

I'm getting a very eerie feeling about this--like when Gary Carter was going for HR #300 and it took FOREVER. Figure we should get it be August--after Sandy announces, once again, that he 'likes this team.'

Surprised that they have a winning home record against the Br*ves, but hey, that's cool.  Atl did have a lousy team for a lot of years, too.  Good luck DeGrom!  That would be an honor for him to get the big 4,000.  Gotta beat these guys this week, if we want to have a chance.

Glad that they at least pulled out last night's affair, which was quite an odd one.  The neighborhood play, eh?!  It is interesting and maybe a tiny bit troubling that MLB took an unofficial tendency by umps to embrace the neighborhood play and then, all-of-a-sudden, we discover last night that there now have been written into the new "policy" for replay actual "guidelines", I suppose you could call it, very specifically showing how a call should be handled, when (correct me if I'm wrong) this is absolutely nowhere in the official rulebook for MLB.  Look through the rules.  Is there "neighborhood play"?  Or are these the new rules?  I'm a bit confused about that.  I know this is the wrong place to post this, but it struck me today.  Feels like they have added the neighborhood play into the "rules" through the back door, sneaking it in with replay.  Any thoughts on this?

Great! We are still double digits under 500 and not making the play offs again for the 8th year in a row.

And 4374 losses, embarrasing for what is supposed to be a big market team.

Funny they posted this...i was just reading today where the Angels (LA, California, Anaheim) just got to .500 for the first time since they were 1-1 in 1961.  And the Mets are 375 games under 500.  A major market team can't get it's act together for any length of time....smdh

@SomeHighSchoolKid 10/2/1965...2nd game of a doubleheader...Mets/Phils ends in 0-0 tie after 18 innings.   

I assume since it was the second game of the day, last or next to last day of the season, and both teams were well out of the running, they just didn't GAF to finish it.

@mike23 What is that even supposed to mean? Such a stupid comment. Plenty of "big market teams" have similar if not worse winning %s.  Suck it up.

@C.K. Dexter Haven Mets should hit .500 sometime around the arrival of the Alien Overlords in 2500. I wonder if the descendants of the Wilpons will still own the team. I can also guarantee you that TC will say that CY's swing is 'coming-around.'
