Some game, huh? If the Nats didn't win it in the 12th, I was going to suggest that Davey and Terry Collins just agree that both teams should take the "L". It was pretty terrible baseball all around, but with 162 to play they all can't be instant classics. The important thing is you come away with the "W", and the Nats did with a nice moment for Bryce.
What to make of last night? As I tweeted, unless the game is completely out of hand, say the Nats are down by 10 in the 8th, they are going to have a chance to win. As much as I'd like to say it's because the Nats offense with Morse back is that good, that's not the driving force here. It's that the Mets pen is that bad. They have an ERA of 5.39, dead last in the majors. If they were to improve by an entire run they would be tied for 28th in the majors. (If the 29th team, Milwaukee, was to improve by an entire run they would be 13th in the majors). This is all quite amusing because basically the only thing Sandy Alderson did in the offseason was try to fix the bullpen. Maybe if he did nothing at all the Mets would be the best team in baseball.
Don't turn off your transistors early kids.
