In case you missed it…

Last night at Wrigley Field, the Mets rallied from an early 4-0 deficit to tie the game, but ultimately fell, 7-4, to the Cubs as they were swept in the three-game set >> Read more at MetsBlog, ESPN, MLB.com, Newsday, New York Post and Daily News


Triple-A RHP Noah Syndergaard was removed from his start in the first inning after injuring his left (non-pitching) shoulder while covering home plate after a wild pitch. Syndergaard had precautionary x-rays after the game. It was Syndergaard’s first start since returning from a mild flexor-pronator strain.

Feels like the season is over already. The Mets got swept by the Cubs and Wright is probably not playing tonight. Looks like the team will be going in yet another dreadful losing streak. It's hard to keep having faith in this team.

So much for moving in the fences. It's obvious that a hitter's park like Wrigley cramped their style, even though the hitters showed up for the Phillies. Keep the demensions intact, even though the opposition does well.

Par for the course for the Mets and Thor. Hope he is ok.

Hey Matt. Time for another Right/Wrong Direction poll.  SMH!  Lose 3 to the Cubs. This team bites!

What is really sad, is the fact that I would be very happy with a 500 season :} That's how you know I'm a METS fan, 500 is my goal, can we do it? It is NOT going to be easy, and, I'm not sure we have the pieces to get it done.

The reality is this folks.....you can't compete with several players in your line up hitting .200 or less. the only way that's possible is if your pitcher is throwing shut outs game after game. It's just not realistic to expect success with these kinds of hitters.

This is what really make me mad about this team, they took 4 out of 5 from the Phillies, should have been 5, but, a certain player can't catch a pop up :{ They move to 1 game under 500, with a 3 game series against the worst team in the NL. What happens? In classic METS fashion they get sweept :} YES!!! I love it when they play like the METS. Flash a little hope and crush it. LETS GO METS!!!!
