Well.. The season has been over for a while.
But there are still games to be played. Let’s try and get through the rest of this season together. Here are the best Mets related tweets from the month of August.
I’d love Wright to say, “I signed an under value contract. I risked my health and career for them. Now they want more from me? They can go fuck themselves!” https://t.co/OU1KpQtipX

Rosario last 20 games:
.326/.351/.472/.823, 3 HR, 15 RBIs
Walk rate is still alarmingly low but he has cut down on the strikeouts and making more hard contact

1) We count Wright's full salary against the payroll and don't reinvest it because he might come back;
2) We don't let him come back;
1) We prioritize first base defense so we can't call up Alonso
2) Play Bruce at first

Or in other words, the Wilpons made this decision because of freaking money. They do not want to risk losing any of the insurance payout on Wright's salary, and they don't want to start Alonso's MLB clock. Ricco is just providing cover for greedy, cheap, money grubbing owners. https://t.co/8iAuh96ilJ

"Paul Sewald is in a Hot Spot, but you don't have to worry. American Standard Heating and Air Conditioning systems …" Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time. Harper 3 run double. 5-0 Nationals in 8th.

Zack Wheeler continues his run of strong pitching for the #Mets. His day is done after 7 shutout innings and 4 K’s against the #Nationals, dropping his ERA down to 3.46 on the season. In 5 August starts (including today), Wheeler has allowed a total of just 4 runs. #NYM

Being a Mets fan this season sucks. But the Nationals just got shutout by Jason Vargas so…. #lgm

This is the third straight start where an unearned run has scored against Jacob deGrom. His teammates really have not backed him up this season. #Mets

Jacob deGrom's final line:
9 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K, 108 pitches.
It was his third career complete game, and his last since June 12, 2017. In his bid to remain the National League Cy Young pace-setter, deGrom was sublime.

The Mets scored 46 runs in the last two days. They scored 89 in the entire month of June.

Just want to make sure my eyes are still good. The Mets have scored 14 runs? #lgm

Paul Sewald hasn’t gotten many outs this season.
— Mike Puma (@NYPost_Mets) August 15, 2018
Luis Severino has allowed 30 earned runs in his last seven starts.
Jacob deGrom has allowed 31 earned runs this season.

Mets say David Wright will begin a minor league rehab assignment tomorrow with 5 innings at 3B for St. Lucie at Clearwater.

Even with that HR, it was another dominant outing for Zack Wheeler. Since June 27 (8 starts), Wheeler has a 2.22 ERA with 54 strikeouts and 13 walks.
He has really turned a corner.

Fans: We want a consistent strike zone every game
MLB: Automatic walks
Fans: No, the umps are too inconsistent
MLB: Pitch clock
MLB: We’re going to start the inning with a runner on 2nd

Zack Wheeler has a 2.91 ERA with 72 strikeouts and 24 walks in 77 1/3 IP over his last 12 starts. So happy for him and his re-birth. Been a real long road for him (and remember he didn’t even make the team out of camp!). #Mets

Jacob deGrom’s final line:
8 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 9 K, 100 pitches.
deGrom has gone 19 consecutive starts without allowing more than three runs. He is in line to fall to 3-7 in those games.

And then a single, 1-0 Braves, that is AMBS last update from Citi Field tonight, not wasting my time or yours
