    Re: New York Mets 2012: Fight the Future

    Strange team. They've alternated between slightly above-average / never quitting and quad-A bottom feeder.

      Mets hit three home runs today. All of them into the Party City Deck. This must be what it feels like to play in CBP or the GABP.

      Also, Mets (0.667) have the 2nd-best record against division opponents behind the Dodgers (0.696).

                That's a bit of a leap there. I pay attention to the game when I'm there, but I've never seen how keeping score enhances my enjoyment, especially now that I can look up play-by-play online afterward if I want to remember what happened. I'm just as liable to get distracted from the game trying to figure out where to put the two guys that came in on a double switch or how to score a rundown as I am if I'm checking Facebook on my phone.

                  I did at the Phillies-Pirates game that I went to on Easter Sunday and quickly realized that the scorecards given to you in the game program are much too small to do anything with. Especially when one of the teams is the Pirates and they make use of all 13 batters and 6 of their pitchers. I'd show you a picture of my attempt at score-keeping, but I don't want to give you all strokes.

                  Basically, it's a way to keep myself entertained at a game where I don't care who wins and I've already explored the ballpark.

                  Congrats to Nohan!

                  And also to Dickey for another complete-game shutout. If we clone these two and send them out there every day, does that mean that we can get rid of most of our bullpen and stop worrying about how many games they'll cost us over the course of the season?

                    De gustibus non disputandum est. I think keeping a scorecard is one of life's simple pleasures, and that an EMP would improve the experience of going to games.

                        Fair enough. I find trying to keep a scorecard more distracting than any benefits it provides, but maybe once you've kept that many, it doesn't require that much of your attention.

                              Four times in his last six appearances. My impression was that we lose whenever he pitches, but that isn't true, either.

                                And hits in 8 of his last 9. The one where he didn't give up a hit was the first game in Pittsburgh where Kirk / Baxter dropped the fly ball that resulted in a triple and the game-winning run for Walker.
