Noah Syndergaard: About Last Night (September 25)

I didn’t think we’d be here. Not if I’m being honest. If you’™ve read this blog for any length of time (if so, thanks!) you know I’ve voiced my fair share of complaints. Prior to the trade deadline, right after the failed Carlos Gomez trade, I voiced many of those complaints in a rather scathing …

Dillon Gee Had a Bad Time

Lucas Duda’s Big Night

Moments before Giancarlo Stanton hit his first homerun of the season, I idly thought about how far he was off the plate. After a weird, stream-of-consciousness Stephen Dedalus’ like sequence, I eventually thought that attacking the outside corner would work with him but if you miss by even a little . . . bad things …
