4,000 Wins, Two World Series Championships

Congratulations to the New York Mets on their 4,000th win in franchise history. And a nice job by their PR department on the above graphic, although I would have had one player to represent each decade of their history.

The Mets (41-49) beat the Braves (49-41) by a score of 8-3 on Tuesday night at Citi Field. Jacob deGrom got the start for the Mets and was fantastic. By the way, if nobody has coined the term “deGromination” yet, I’m totally going to do that. The rookie went 7 scoreless innings, giving up 7 […]
