Now itís a series.
I thought that a series doesn't start until the road team wins.

What the heck is going on with the Mets ....
Since the Braves and Phillies aren't tanking this year, they aren't guaranteed third place.

As a Ranger fan I don't like either, but for the sake of the "Ovechkin can't make it to the conf finals" narrative, I'm still pulling for Pitt. (The only narrative I enjoy more, obviously, is the "Bryce can't make it to the NLCS"one).
I thought that it should be the Dusty Baker narrative. Now that he's gone...

At least someone wants to talk actual basketball, instead of whatever this nonsense is the thread has devolved into.

As far as your question, it happens. Even more so for a rookie. Don't expect him to repeat in game 3.
To get back on topic, some people have a bad game that happens and get one point, and some have their worst game of the season and get a W on the road, in the playoffs, with a triple double.

Jake Arrieta to Philadelphia: Good news because Brewers, Cardinals and Nationals didn't sign him. Also it makes Philly a division contender (they also signed Carlos Santana), Washington can't coast until the playoffs anymore.
Again, nice to lump all of his numbers together, but going 22-6 with a 1.77 ERA might skew the overall numbers a bit. (And I assume we don't need a discussion about a W-L record pitching for a team that has won 300 games in the last 3 years).
As for the Phils, you're not way off, but neither Santana nor Arietta (as argued above) is a blue-chip superstar, and the Mets had a few of those on the DL for most of last year. If it happens again, maybe you're right; otherwise, I'll take the Mets over the Phils pretty comfortably.
if they are close, its because of mets injuries, which means neither is sniffing the playoffs. my point was philly isnt a contender yet. telling me they finished a few games behind an injury ravaged team tells me nothing
Standings as of today Mets 15-7, Phillies 15-8, Nationals 11-14.

Maybe I was just early  :D :D :D
Never questioned that the Mets have talent (and play a lot of games against the Marlins) the Q is how long the pitching stays healthy. Stick a fork in the Jays, Yanks and Red Sox will rule AL East for a while.

Look they shot 60%+, even on 3's and barely won. If they played good defense they would have won by 20+.
How much would they have won by with TT, Nance, Hood and Korver?

There was talk after his first three peat. By his 15th season he was already crowned. What's your point?
That it's too early to have a real discussion of what number LeBron will be considered on the GOAT list.

That is exactly why he will never be considered the GOAT. Been the knock on him his whole career.
Was MJ considered the GOAT when he was 33?
