More like they gave their fans more than double the disappointment for their money.

At least the Cubs usually put their fans out of their misery in just nine.

Marlins should just play the Mets....7 0f 17 wins against them.

Too bad no one in Miami was watching

I happened to see that game on my computer.

When I found out that the Mets left 22 men on base and only managed to score 1 run, I knew that they were going to lose.

That game was a disgrace to baseball.

Yesterday had to set the record for the most innings played in the Major Leagues in one day. Twelve  games in regulation, one twenty inning game, one 18 inning game, and one 11 inning game. By my admittedly suspect math skills, that equals 140 innings played.
 
2013-06-09 10:15:28 AM
Wow, was my math off! Now, I come up with 157 total innings played, Major League-wide.
 
2013-06-09 10:34:29 AM
Anyone need their taxes done?
 
2013-06-09 10:39:51 AM
The freaking Marlins were like 2-for-5 with RISP and won. I will never understand how the Mets have lost 7 against the freaking 17-win Marlins.

At least we didn't injure Harvey too badly in the process.

Isn't it about time he was called up to the majors?

The Mets need a financial planner that doesn't walk off with their money.

The Mets: able to sweep the season series with the Yanks, including handing Mariano his only blown save (and loss) of the season, yet consistently loses to the Marlins.

How much would you have to hate yourself to sit through this whole game?

I count 166; the Red Sox and the Angels played a doubleheader.

I wanted the game to go to the 21st inning, just to see the CitiField scoreboard reset to post innings 21-30.

It was funny that, in the top of the 11th, Josh Lewin eluded to the possibility of a 20th inning. Oops.

Nah...you're forgetting the olden days where most of the teams would play double headers on some Sundays and holidays.

The scary part is that by end of the visting half of the sixth the walking beer vendors have to shut down. Walk up stands shut down before first pitch of the seventh. The only exception to this MLB rule is if your in a sit down bar or restaurant in the stadium. They can keep serving beer there but you can't leave the bar/restaurant. So that means someone sat there for 13 innings sober. That's scary. Thou I would stay just to say I did.

I can't find any stats on it, but I'm still inclined to believe that this is the most, simply because there are 30 teams nowadays. Imma attempt to summon FARK's baseball stat expert to this thread. DeWayne Mann, please pick up the white courtesy phone.

I don't have access to a database that would let me check that quickly, but I already found two days in 1975 with 160 innings each. So even if it is the winner, it's not the winner by much.

Elias said nothing about it on their twitter feed; they tend to do a pretty good job at point out interesting stuff like that.

I love that the 18 inning Rangers-Jays game was not the longest game of the day

I found one with more. July 24, 1977.

There were 5 double headers, for a grand total of 18 games. 3 went into extras: 12 were 12 innings, the other was 13.

So that's 15*9+2*12+13 = 172.

No idea if that's the most, but I'm not gonna check any others.

And this time it's the Mets' pitching and defense's turn to shiat the bed.

Quick update: Larry Granillo just posted on twitter that 30 days had more innings than yesterday. All of them had at least 2 more games (which makes sense).

Someone in a recent FARK thread posted a link to a site that had up-to-date projected win/loss totals for all MLB teams.

I can't find that link now: I've searched Google, history on my machine, and FARK, and it just isn't coming up for me.

Would the person who posted that (or someone else who knows what I'm talking about) mind reposting that link?

There are a few. Obviously, if you just want basic "on track for", you can take their current W% and multiply that by 162, so I won't link to any like that.

So with that in mind, here are three of the better ones:

Baseball Prospectus

Fangraphs

The fangraphs one is new, but might be my favorite.

I'm seeing reports that the Mets just sent down Ike Davis (finally), Robert Carson (finally), and Mike Baxter (...okay). Can anyone confirm?

I can confirm the reports, but they won't make the moves official until tomorrow, most likely.

Only reason to do them tonight would be if they really, really want the ability to bring those guys back on June 19th instead of waiting until June 20.
 
2013-06-09 07:26:14 PM
A seven-inning relief appearance and an eight-inning relief appearance in the same game. I wouldn't count on seeing that happen again anytime soon.

Seems that way.  Brought up 1B Josh Satin (okay), LHP Josh Edgin (eh, Germen's been pitching better at AAA, but I guess we need a lefty even though Edgin doesn't get people out) and either Andrew Brown or Collin Cowgill.

So, meh.  Had to be done.
