At the game and can't put in lineups as it gives me carpal tunnel trying to do that on my phone. So, without lineups, chatter and play ball!

Mets:
Juan Lagares ® CF
Ruben Tejada ® SS
Lucas Duda (L) 1B
Ike Davis (L) DH
Andrew Brown ® LF
Zach Lutz ® 3B
Kirk Nieuwenhuis (L) RF
Taylor Teagarden ® C
Omar Quintanilla (L) 2B
SP: Gee

Twins:
Brian Dozier ® 2B
Jason Bartlett ® SS
Joe Mauer (L) DH
Jason Kubel (L) RF
Wilkin Ramirez ® LF
Chris Parmelee (L) 1B
Josmil Pinto ® C
Eduardo Escobar (S) 3B
Alex Presley (L) CF
SP: Nolasco

Okay, top 1st and judging by who's on the field, it's a day of backups. Dozier is the only started out there

Nolasco's not sharp today at all.

Another meeting at the mound. "Don't do that." "OK."

Okay, I'm giving it 2 innings if we ever get out of this one, then heading over to watch the minor league games with Halsey

It sounds like the curse of the Twins opening day starter.

Should be 100% more fun. I'd opt for that almost regardless of the doings on the major league field.

But 5-0, it's not even a decision to make.

Hope the Mets wanted to take BP today.

"First inning bullpen activity"- always nice to hear... but only 7 of 10 batters score, so it could have been worse.

Never let Dick & Bert brag you up ... it's the sure kiss of death for a pitcher.

Veteran pitcher who knows how to bear down to keep a 7-run inning from becoming a disaster.

Good thing we got our ace on the mound today...


On a serious note, better to get this out of the way before the season starts

Feels like we have two possible headlines at this point:
1) Nolcaso Fails to Match Crookedest Number in Second Frame
or
2) Twins-Mets Make MLB Look Like BP

Bad form to put in a guy who is on waivers. What if he gets injured right when another team is claiming him... Not sure it's even allowed, actually. He's DFA, so technically I'm not sure if he's in major league camp anymore or what.

9-0? Just gets better... get to admire that sparkling Mets offense.
At least we can make somebody look good.

Well, sure- just taking another look, I'm sure- why not?
At this point in the game, I'm all sarcasm.
Otherwise, I'd have to pin my hopes on our sparkling offense!
