    You'd find a way to defend Mickey even if they were 20 games under .500 Dug.

    I’m not a Calloway at all. However he managed a very good tight game last night. Gotta call it the way we see it and he did a solid job. Deep down I still fear our bullpen. Ugh, the agony of it all.

    Oh god no. No more Great Value Brand Gary.

    Don't tell me he managed a very tight game last night. The decision to bunt Panik could have cost him the game.

    You mean like threatening a reporter for asking a question?

    Was I?

    Absolutely hated that decision, especially with two strike candidates following him and a speedy Rosario on 2B.

    Was ridiculously bad. He had already used Lugo for two innings. Extra innings meant almost certainly relying on the uber erratic Edwin Diaz out of the bullpen. And here he is playing for the tie after leadoff double by bunting one of his best hitters.

    It's simple math. Do you have the best chance to win by allowing for three outs or two? Indeed, the move backfired when Conforto hit into what should have been a game-ending double play after the intentional walk to Alonso.

    They won't be so lucky the next time.

    Got tickets to tonight's game (Sec 19, row 8) back in the dark days of late June. Who knew? Going with a lifelong friend who for some reason always followed Cleveland (hence the seats behind their dugout). He and I and our sucky teams had a lot in common in the late 70s and 80s. We spent many nights on the highest hill in our town in the sticks catching a buzz, alternating between Mets broadcasts and a distant signal from Ohio, discussing the impending superstardom of Lee Mazilli & Mike Vail, Joe Charboneau & Rick Manning. I have a soft spot for the Indians because of that but right now they will have to suck for at least one more night. LFGM

    Have a great time, surprise you didn't discuss Bruce Boisclair.

    We have all night for that. I can't imagine a lifetime NYer and Mets fan knows more about the Cleveland Indians of the late 70s and early 80s than me. Len Barker. Andre Thornton. Duane Freakin' Kuiper. What kept us together was a mutual hatred of the Yankees.
