I just will never be confident in Edwin Diaz ever again.
I try to give Luis Rojas the benefit of the doubt, but there was no reason to pitch Edwin Díaz in a non-save situation on back-to-back days. Just no reason. And now he’s injured. Hopefully its minor, but this is just bad. #Mets
Its a good thing Luis Rojas gave the ball to Edwin Díaz in a non-save situation. Solid move. #Mets
Edwin Díaz departed alongside Mets trainer Brian Chicklo due to apparent injury.
And on replay, umpires say it's NOT a home run for Rhys Hoskins, but a two-run double. Jeurys Familia will pitch.
What. A. Crazy. Game.
Mets 8, Phillies 7, bottom nine.
Edwin Díaz shouldn't have been in this game in the first place.
Edwin Diaz had back tightness. Tried to pitch through it.
Oh my goodness. Edwin Díaz just served up a game-tying, three-run homer to Rhys Hoskins in the bottom of the ninth.
What a crazy game.
Mets 8, Phillies 8, bottom nine.
Edwin Díaz was experiencing some back tightness in the ninth, which is why he departed with the trainer. The Mets will have it checked out and know more tomorrow.
To recap the Mets season:
- Offense legit couldn’t be any worse
- deGrom the GOAT, but we still lose
- Offense still can’t hit
- No one on the team can field
- Our franchise player sucks
- Bullpen bad, amazing, then bad
- Edwin Diaz good, then bad again
Tied For First
Edwin Diaz’s back was bothering him tonight. He told Mets pitching coach Jeremy Hefner it was tight, which is why the Mets pulled him out, per Luis Rojas.
So this fucking moron left Edwin Diaz in the game with a back issue.
Rojas is a fucking brainiac
THE NATIONALS ARE PLAYING NARCO BY BLASTERJAXX. I REPEAT. THE NATIONALS STOLE EDWIN DIAZ’S ENTRANCE MUSIC
Luis Rojas explains why he brought Edwin Diaz into the 9th inning with a four-run lead:
The Phillies are bringing the potential tying run to the plate against Edwin Diaz.
Mets 8, Phillies 5, bottom 9
Edwin Diaz was dealing with back tightness during the ninth inning, Luis Rojas said.
"He got tight throughout the outing"
Luis Rojas says that Edwin Diaz left the game with back tightness:
Lo que parecía un claro jonrón para empatar 8-8 se convierte en doble que acerca #Phillies 8-7. Edwin Díaz salió aparentemente lesionado. Fans no felices.
Stole their logo from Walgreens.
Stole their chant from the Jets.
Stole their in game music from Edwin Diaz.
Very original organization.
to discuss the Mets' wild win over the Phillies and concerns surrounding Edwin Diaz after tonight's performance:
Esto es increíble lo de Edwin Díaz y Mets . OMG.
Even by the Mets’ bizarre standards, their win Sunday against the Phillies was a wild one.
"I don’t know if that’s a season-defining game," Pete Alonso said, "but it’s definitely a momentum-shifter."
By the way, if the Mets want to win a World Series, Edwin Diaz is going to have to learn how to be effective on consecutive nights.
A four run lead in May on a game with that much emotion and momentum was the PERFECT spot for Diaz to do it.
#Mets 8 @ #Phillies 8 [B9-2o]:
Rhys Hoskins homers (9): fly ball to RF (3-run)
Hit: 356ft, 100.9mph, 25°🚀, OPPO🌮
Pitch: 100.3mph🔥 Four-Seam Fastball (RHP Edwin Díaz, 1)
"[Edwin Diaz] is confused as hell, he doesn't know what to do"
True in every situation though, regardless of the play at hand
Down four runs in the ninth against Edwin Diaz and the #Mets, the #Phillies have come back to tie it on a three-run homer from Rhys Hoskins.
Edwin Diaz has allowed earned runs in only 2 of his 11 appearances, both being non-save situations. He has yet to blow a save this season. I feel like some people need to hear this.
