JONTAHAN VILLAR BRINGS IN ALBERT ALMORA TO TIE THE GAME!!!!
Still cracking up that Albert Almora is literally on this team to pinch run and for vibes
The best part about that 7th inning rally was that it was all from offseason acquisitions (McCann, Almora Jr, Villar, Lindor)
It was a hella risky send but when you consider the team’s RISP woes to this point, it was 100% the right call. Great slide by Almora Jr
VILLAR AND ALMORA METS HEROES JUST LIKE WE THOUGHT
The contributions from Almora and Villar were so key. This is a very good bench and they contributed in a huge way in game 1. #LGM
Who needs George springer we have Albert almora
What a game. Reminded me of Tuesday’s doubler header where the Mets were in control than almost lost a brutal game than came back. deGrom deserves some good fortune, McCann, Villar, Lindor all huge hits. Credit Rojas pinch running Almora early. #Mets #deGrom #Villar
Villar comes up clutch again
Super close play at the plate but Almora just slides in safe getting his left hand in there #LGM
Let's not overlook Almora's role -- great speed and perfect slide. And the manager for putting him in. And having him on the bench, what a difference from previous years
Almora and Villar both deserve a start...
Almora has barely gotten any time. After doing his job as a pinch runner and making an excellent slide to save a DeGrom start, I would have rewarded him with the nod in center over Pillar
I'd really like to see Almora get a chance to start over Pillar.
Should start Almora over Pillar simply because of his exquisite slide
I’d rather see Almora play. Kevin Pillar hits worse than Joey Luchessi @Mets
Details: Almora’s slide was exceptional. McCann showed how much more agile and intense he is than Ramos on that SF.
A big move that payed off for Rojas was pinchrunning Almora Jr for McCann. I know everyone loves to criticize Rojas but that was a great move to make. McCann most likely doesn't score on Villar's double and they would've still been down by one.

I wanted the #Phillies to sign Carlos Rondon and Albert Almora Jr. But they didn't listen to me. #RingTheBell
That was an incredible slide by Almora and who would have thought that Villar would be the #Mets Mr. Clutch so early in this season. #LGM
Mets won in a come from behind 7th for deGrom.
1. Jeff McNeil is a liability in the IF. He's a much better OF.
2. Alonso is still swinging at the high fastball & missing.
3. Both Villar & Almora are excellent bench depth.
4. Luis Rojas IS a great manager.
Yessir love to see everybody chipping in on this W and love to see our 4 new additions help out in the 7th McCann getting that single Almora pitch running that speed was clutch af and Villar w the double to bring him in and Lindor to take the lead was so perfect
