The Phighting Phils are taking a broom into Sunday night’s ESPN game when they play for the 3-game sweep of the NY Mets. The Phillies are winners of their last 4 games and are in the thick of the playoff race in the National League.
Now that the Mets are 5 games under .500 we can hear the fat lady from a good distance tuning her throat. It doesn’t seem like that long ago that the Mets were in first-place and in control of the NL East, but those days are long gone.
The bats have cooled off and injuries to the likes of deGrom and Syndergaard have taken two big names out of the rotation. Syndergaard has obviously not pitched at all in 2021, but he was hoping to make it back before the end of the season.
There will likely be no significant games to play in New York, however, so bringing either of these two potential aces back might be pointless anyway.
The Mets… are favored tonight!!?! Hi, my name is Ej and I have a ‘fading the Mets when they are favored’ problem! But, it keeps filling my pockets so I am okay with that! Let’s do it again!
Do the line setters think the Phillies should be road dogs as they look for the sweep? I know so many bettors out there think the home teams can avoid getting swept, but the reality is that the Mets are simply not playing well at the wrong time.
Jean Segura had himself quite a night on Saturday before the fireworks show at Citi Field took place. He lit his own fireworks with a boomer in the first inning and another boomer in the third inning that put the Phils up 2 – 0 and Nola cruised from there. Nola had full control of the Mets lineup on Saturday night striking out 7 through the first 3 innings. We do remember that Nola struck out 10 consecutive Mets this season, right?
CB Buckner is always nice for a pitcher to have behind the plate too, however, so that came to his aid boosting the Ks for Nola. Buckner’s strike zone is bigger than the moon and he is a classic example as to why we need to get rid of umpires calling balls and strikes.
Kyle Gibson goes tonight for the Phillies and he puts his 10 – 7 record on the line after losing his last start to the Cubs, 6 – 3. Gibson struck out 7 but gave up 2 huge homers while only throwing 77 pitches before being yanked. He is ultimately only 4 – 4 with the Phillies since coming over from Texas.
Mets fans remember it well. It must seem like yesterday they were up 7 games in the division and the playoffs were a foregone conclusion. Or… not so much because the wheels fell off not having deGrom around among plenty of other factors.
Jonathan Villar went from so hot you couldn’t touch him to absolutely clueless in less than a month. Villar is a free agent after the season and I thought it was hysterical listening to Fox announcers last night talking about how he has been a bright spot down the stretch!?!? Down the stretch of what, his underwear? You can tell when people don’t watch certain teams because we know better than that! I don’t miss a single pitch of any Mets or Yankees games, and if you think Villar is hot and helping the Mets right now? You are a f**king moron! Plain and simple!
In his last 12 games, Villar has 1 game with more than 1 hit and his average has fallen from .268 to .257 as a result. Hot? WHAT? Stop listening to Fox broadcasters and you’ll be okay! The dude has one double IN THE ENTIRE MONTH of September and has 3 extra-base hits this entire month. That’s an idiot talking when he should be reading the stats not thinking off the top of his head!
Anyway, the Polar Bear is literally in Antarctica right now and Michael Conforto also went from seeing the ball well to looking like a AAA guy! Flailing at balls out of the zone and all you need to do is slider him to death and he is as good as useless!
Brandon Nimmo didn’t need a stint on the IL because he was the one guy who was hot when he went down earlier this month. Now, he needs to get ABs to get back in a groove but there is no time to wait.
Baez got in a groove but he strikes out 33% of the time he is in the box and he chases anything like Gregorius does for the Phils. Just throw it 3 inches within the plate and both of those dudes will get themselves out.
McCann? Yeah, far removed from his Chi-Sox days and his 10 HR on the season won’t keep in in town much longer.
Rich Hill barely can throw a baseball over 90 MPH and he throws curve after curve and curve and then throws 3 more curves! So hittable and so predictable that you don’t even need to steal signs. Just wait for it!
I have two words for Mets fans…
NEXT YEAR! Oh, here are two more… GOOD LUCK! LoL
