You will read this story from Jared Diamond as I continue to shake off my guilt from nuking his timeline Saturday night.
The Mets’ opponents from Monday to the end of the season have a combined winning percentage of .455, the worst of any slate of opponents in the major leagues.
I gotta say, the Mets are awesome at releasing the lineup when I go off-line for half an hour.
One man, one team, 1000 lineups. The winner will be the Mets player who stays in the starting lineup the longest. Any order. Any defensive position.
Gotta say, for a guy they won’t re-sign, Murph sure does play a lot.
Also interesting to see if Terry can get the fanbase to go back to hating Wilmer Flores, shortstop.
Monday, August 3

Daniel Murphy – 3B

Lucas Duda – 1B

A sequel to Thursday’s very Mets-heavy episode, this one is very Star Wars heavy, but I did want to post it here since there are some fans of the podcast, and some fans of both the Mets and Star Wars. If you don’t like this one, scroll down and play episode 10 which was all-Mets.
