We finally made it!
Regular season baseball is here.
Let’s ease in to the season with the very best #MetsTwitter has to offer in April.
JD Davis has the range of a battery powered lawnmower. You heard it here first.

#Mets arrived at Citi Field at 2:45 AM this morning. And then they had to go home and get some sleep. Perhaps playing a night game 1000 miles away from a day game scheduled for the next afternoon won’t happen again.

Wilson Ramos and Amed Rosario have each hit safely in all seven games this season.
The last Met with a longer season-opening hitting streak was David Wright, who recorded at least one hit in each of his first 10 games of the 2012 season.

Interestingly, Robinson Cano was Keon Broxton’s secret weapon at the plate today.
During Broxton’s 8th inning at-bat, Cano noticed Broxton was swinging for the fences. He shouted from the dugout & told him to stay inside, hit it to RF. Broxton listened, got the go-ahead hit.

Losing a game where you score 9 runs when scherzer is starting is peak Mets.

Guillorme’s gotten all of five PA and 6.1 innings in the field to showcase his skills this year.
guess a .287/.363/.338 slash line and just 272 K over 2,322 minor league PA doesn’t get you much these days..

The Mets can’t afford to not give themselves a chance every night. This NL East race is so tight and wild that every game matters. And sending Vargas to the mound 20% of the time will be costly in the long run. They need to move on from him immediately. Can’t start him again

Hank Aaron is a legend. And ESPN should consider showing the game they're broadcasting.

Hey MLB, just a thought, but maybe your "pace of play problem" is because every game is 15-12 and not because teams switch pitchers in the middle of innings sometimes.

The all-in Mets who wanted you to know every game counts had Flexen, Avilan, Rhame, and Sewald pitch today.

Pete Alonso, with this swing, hit that ball 99 MPH. He is not human. pic.twitter.com/qNfEHoxvNS

Following last night’s win, the #Mets are particularly playful & loose during BP.
Smith, pretending to be a pitcher, threw to a squatting Davis as McNeil umped behind him.
Cano & Broxton danced as they waited for grounders. The weather is nice & spirits are high at Citi Field.

12 years ago today. One of my absolute favorite baseball memories. If you told a casual baseball fan in 2019 that a:
– Safety squeeze
– Drag bunt
won this game, they’d ask you what a drag bunt is. pic.twitter.com/g8wgvApHAd

Mets woke the sleeping giant phillies so well that they just held to 1 run on 4 hits, and a loss in extra innings, to the mighty powerhouse that is the Florida Marlins.

So in a nutshell, deGrom, Syndergaard and Wheeler all have ERAs close to 5 or higher and the Mets began the night in first place … That's baseball, Suzyn.

Travis d'Arnaud has been exuding some incredible "future Oriole" energy for a couple years now.
— Nathan Bernhardt (@jonbernhardt) April 28, 2019
And I'm not just saying this because of deGrom and Syndergaard. Look around the league. Aaron Nola's ERA is 5.68. Corey Kluber's ERA is 5.81. Chris Sale's ERA is 7.43. I love dingers too, but it's not fun to watch good pitchers get bombed every night.

Frazier has struggled early (.217/.250/.347) but I’m sure he’ll turn things around and go back to the player he was last year (.213/.303/.390)
