Gotta really like what's going on with Familia and Mejia.  The team as a whole is substandard, but they're definitely building something for the future with those two guys.  Familia is looking like an absolute stud of late.

Looking forward to see TDA back in the lineup and Campbell there as well. Let's try and split the series

Kirk hitting well. Couldn't understand why he was sitting this week against RHP coming off his big 2 2B hit game. I just can't figure out Terry sometimes. Nice win, Kirk played a role.

Campbell seems like nice guy - well spoken, humble, and he's hitting too!

Because Mets

@mets63 Why would you play either Young, Jr or Kirk over Lagares?  EY is at best a 4th outfielder.

I would think no Mejia tomorrow.

Chill with the stupid stuff and crying garbage. It was a concern because he threw 35 pitches last night. That stuff isn't needed.

I'm not crying I was saying that mejia could have used a day off. But if he wants to go out there by all means. But for sure he won't be able to go tomorrow

@shami jacob Collins isn't getting fired. And Jenrry is the closer. And it's a save situation.

U can't look at it that way. C'mon.

Have you seen some of the moves Terry has done this year? He's had every right to be roasted some times

It's a reasonable argument we didn't lose the game we won so let's keep it going

He's also a tired closer, but he's got two outs so I'll eat my words

Oh no haha. I'm finished. If we keep winning keeps can't we just wash the jerseys and wear them again? Let's go Royal Giants!

I'm not saying anything about TC. Those remarks aren't needed. Just disagree without the trash talk. Easy stuff guy

Well it's not often you have your closer throw 36 pitches then run him out there day game after a night game but we won so who cares

I think the only reason he pitched today is because before yesterday hadn't pittston 6 days
