deGrom -ZERO walks, 11 K's.  2/3 of his pitches were strikes. Love that!

Duda up to .260 after 3-3, 5 reaches.

...since it's clear the Mets have adopted this towel waving thing, what's taking the Mets PR department so long to put together a towel give away this home stand?  How cool would Citi have looked tonight with 3,826 the fans joining the players during all that scoring?

This is a team that has yet to fully "move in" to its home field. Nights like this point to what it COULD feel like with a team that plays at home with confidence, pride, and a connection to its fans. Let's hope there will be more nights like these over the rest of this season and beyond.

looks like kirk might be a possible solution in LF.  he has an OPS over 1.0.  hard to keep benching that production no?

I think we all will remember where we were and what we were doing on the night the Mets won their 4000th.

At least he threw that one at 97.  Velocity looks good.  Be nice if he could throw it over the damn plate.

Maybe one day Collins will grow a pair and have his pitchers throw some chin music at Freeman to back his behind off the plate and make him uncomfortable.

Familia is definitely TC's go-to-guy for the most stressful in game situations

So let him hit against righties and let's see if he keeps going.

@C.K. Dexter Haven that requires somebody with a clue in that department. The PR efforts by the Mets have been quite terrible for awhile (See - letter to fans).

If we give up prospects to get a hitter it better be someone under contract not a free agent to be.

@wackymets Fwiw, we're also chasing the Nationals (and to a lesser extent the Marlins), so if we were to somehow manage to sweep the Braves (still a big if), we might not pick up 2 games on the division leader.

@wackymets I believe the Mets will remain the same until later in July or possibly August when i could see Colon. Murphy or both traded. Possibly others, but i wouldn't expect anything involving our prospects until this winter.

Play him against righties and let's see him hit.
