Why should the Mets be punished because the Nats didn't do the right thing? It was originally reported that 1 person tested positive and 4 others were out due to contact tracing. If that's the case, just play the game. If it's more than that, then the Nats clearly aren't following distancing protocols and don't deserve to be bailed out by MLB.

Gee, it sure would be sweet if we could play a game at some point.

This is the Metsiest start ever.

Nah. It'll be the Metsiest when Lindor pulls a ribcage muscle on his first swing and it nags and hampers him until mid-August.

Outside of it being opening day, this is pretty typical. When was the last time a FA bullpen arm didn’t suck ass?

Need to get McNeil going, the bullpen will round into form - I truly think it will be a strength by July

Because you think Lugo will be back by then, or you're expecting on of these rag arms to turn around?

Be positive! Castro and May are great bullpen arms! Familia is Familia... Loup was a sneaky good signing!

It's only game 3! Need to batter Nola early today.. POSITIVITY!

I hear you. We have talent. I wish I had more faith in Rojas.

On the bright side, how about Alonso’s defense!

Pete looks like he slimmed down too, my wife pointed it out, I wish she'd say the same about me!

Did the Mets strike gold with that kid or what?

Topic for discussion: Should the Mets sign Conforto to a big extension?

I have a big love/hate relationship with him. Seems like a great kid, good teammate, sweet swing. Power and average. But do we need him? Or can that money be better spent elsewhere? Is he the next Jay Bruce, Jason Bay type "average" corner outfielder that makes his bacon over a hot few stretches every year?

I think it's a no brainer to sign him. They're already going to be looking for a CF in a weak OF class next year, finding 2 is going to be really tough. Especially when Conforto is by far the best option available. After him you're looking at older guys like Starling Marte and Andrew McCutchen as the best options

Gotta sign him. 5 years 100 mil? Have to lock him up long term.

That strike 3 call on him with the bases loaded yesterday made me IRATE, it was outside.

Right now he's looking for $200M, I suspect they settle somewhere in the middle above Springer's 6/$150M

Mets steal a win with Comforto getting grazed on his elbow protector in the strike zone with bases loaded in bottom of 9th and bases loaded. Refs blew it big time. It is illogical that getting hit on a called third strike is not called batter interference. :confused::confused::rolleyes:

Yeah, no doubt it was the wrong call. Ref admitted it afterwards; Mets announcers said it instantly. HBP in strike zone = out.

I’m not certain he meant get hit but it doesn’t matter. He should have been called out. And he will get thrown at before the Marlins leave town.

Yikes, bad press that the Mets booth is getting so much attention for criticizing the call on the field and the "lean" by Conforto. Hope this fades away quickly.

It should fade away quickly once Conforto gets beaned. It's unfortunate that they have a day off today.
