3 of the 4 HRs would've been out even with the old dimensions.  Leave the fences alone.  When the temperature rises the ball travels, and the park evens out.  If you hit better, you'll HIT BETTER.

We have 9 starters next year. Colon, gee, Neise, Harvey, wheeler, degrom, Noah, montero, hefner. We need to try to get that true 4 hitter in a trade.

You want a fast game?  Get on the mound and throw 73 out of 112 pitches for strikes

Colon caught a lot of attention in both leagues tonight. Even if the price was right, I would hate to see him go.

The Mets better be in the A block on MLB Tonight.  You punch the best team in baseball in the mouth like that you DESERVE to be shown early in the show.  Not with the "also played today"....

Colon going to get his 6th straight win, sounds like the ace they were attempting to sign to replace harvey to me

@hankypanky  me too but it would be the smart move.....well if we really think we can compete we could hold on to him and trade him in the offseason

@hankypanky ERA shrinking but wins increasing.  Yeah, he opened some scouts eyes for sure.  Just remember, his destiny here was always to be flipped for...something else.

@Randy Wilcox The Phillies are old, that's not apt to change.  I personally believe the Marlins are playing over their collective heads AND they're running out of pitching options.  The Braves SP is CRASHING back to earth.  The Nats...sigh...they're gonna get BETTER in the next few weeks...the East is a dumpster fire that the Mets can stay relevant in...gonna take more days like the last two though.

@Gerard Farrell @7up17left 77-14 K's to BB 3.65 ERA!

@7up17left  He's been better than good his last 7 starts, but All Star ERA's are in the lower 2's. It'd be awesome if he made it though

@7up17left @Gerard Farrell  Hey, if he finishes strong and pitches the way he has been last 7 outings up to the break, I can see him sneaking onto the roster. I'd love it, but I have to be realistic
