Starlin Castro hit a game winning home run off of Jenrry Mejia and his hernia in the ninth inning to send the Mets to a Sunday loss by a score of 2-1. If the Mets want to trade for Castro now, he’ll likely cost Noah Syndergaard, Keith Hernandez, and Sandy Alderson’s first born. Theo Epstein is currently growing a mustache just so he can twirl it and laugh in an evil fashion. And good luck trading for Javier Baez.
In an ironic twist, Ruben Tejada had two hits. In film, Tejada would be called a red herring. A refreshing change from when he would simply smell like rotting fish.
Rafael Montero pitched seven and a third innings of strong baseball, only giving up five hits and striking out six. Of course, it meant nothing because it was wasted on the Mets offense. Meanwhile Juan Lagares, Daniel Murphy, Eric Campbell, and Anthony Recker all landed on the DL with severe curveball allergies, thanks to Jake Arrieta.
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York discussed the Mets with our friends at Sports Talk New York on Sunday night. So stop wasting your time reading this nonsense and go listen.
