I appreciate the Mets paying tribute to my wife by refusing to make any contact and never coming home
JOSE ALVARADO WANTS ALL THE METS BECAUSE THEY CAN’T HIT BACK
Man City is the team that nobody really cares about from the area, right? like the off brand Man United?
kinda like the Clippers... or the Mets... or the Jets... or the White Sox?
sorry i’m still learning about all of this, just want to make sure i got it right
Francisco Lindor, who scouts widely predicted would struggle at the outset in the hard throwing NL East, is batting .192 for the #Mets
Benches have cleared in the Mets-Phillies game.
POV: youre watching the Mets
“He invited the Mets. They should’ve went and got him.” — Ron Darling on the Alvarado situation
I’ve fully convinced myself that if the Mets start throwing punches every night they’ll win 100 games
Benches clear at the end of the Mets-Phillies game!
Marcus Stroman just struck out pitcher Chase Anderson to strand the bases loaded, but the pitch got away from James McCann to allow two runs to score. The ball actually hit the umpire in the leg...really bad break for the Mets.
Phillies 2, Mets 0, bottom two.
The struggles with RISP continue for the Mets. They're 0-for-5 so far through three innings tonight.
This remain chippy in Philadelphia, as Miguel Castro throws inside to Rhys Hoskins and the Phillies take offense.
Bad blood between the Mets and Phillies right now.
The Mets haven't scored in 20 innings. They have scored one run since Sunday (25 innings).
And in the 22nd inning, the Mets catch a break. A tailor-made J.D. Davis double play ball gets caught in the webbing of Alec Bohm's glove. Dominic Smith makes the Phillies pay with an RBI single on the next pitch.
Phillies 2, Mets 1, top six.
Nets losing grip of the one seed and the Mets losing their dignity. Not a good night.
Mets are the worst in baseball with .119 isolated slugging.
If you want to look at the biggest reason the Mets aren't scoring runs, it's right there.

Ron Darling is as measured as they come with his commentary. So when he said the Mets should have taken up Alvarado on his invitation to "come get me," it tells you how unprofessional the Phillies' reliever was with his gesturing toward Dom Smith after the strikeout.
The Mets had the best offense in MLB when their hitting coach took the year off and have the worst offense in MLB when he is in attendance.
April 30, 1988: Pete Rose gets suspended for 30 days after pushing umpire David Pallone, whose delayed call allows the @Mets
to score the eventual winning run in a 6-5 win Riverfront Stadium. Rose claimed he was poked in the face during the argument. #LGM #MetsRewind https://t.co/5ycZBgDKrW
It's hard to have your worst loss of the season two games in a row, but the Mets have managed to do it.
There’s a few ways to look at this:
If the Mets score there, Alvarado has nothing to say
The Mets can either sit back and take the talk or back themselves up and fight back
It’s not a real baseball season until there’s bad blood between the Mets & Phillies.
Omg SAME. or even on tv, I feel like the Mets fight so much less than other teams.
#TheCalmBeforeTheStorm The Mets & Phillies bullpens deciding whether it’s worth it to run all the way in from the outfield a send time for an almost-fight... https://t.co/10vtyJDfI5
