The Mets are still doing very well, and Brian and Roger are happy about that! But there’s still plenty of questions. They are happy though!
After the boys of Good Fundies watched the Mets finish blowing a game against the Nationals (02:00), the two questioned whether such ‘shocking’ defeats were truly ‘shocking’ (03:00) Then they talked about Travis d’Arnaud’s season-ending injury and what it means for the catching situation (08:00), Zack Wheeler’s great start (19:00), and Matt Harvey’s not so good at all start (21:10), before Brian updated us with the latest METCON reading (28:00) and the telling stats on how much Mickey Callaway is truly relying on the team bullpen (33:00).
Then in the mailbag, the two figured out if Jay Bruce would be better as a catcher than Michael Conforto (41:00), when Bruce should just go play first already and give Brandon Nimmo more playing time (44:30), how to enjoy being a Mets fan if it means crappy Mets fans get to be happy too (52:15), when Jose Reyes gets the boot for T.J. Rivera or Ty Kelly or Gavin Cecchini (01:15:25), what friends call Noah Syndergaard (01:18:45), and if you’d be okay with a significant other cheating on you with a Met if it means three consecutive Mets pennants (01:19:15). It concluded with a congested Roger trying to channel Jack Buck calling the Bill Buckner play (01:21:10).
