84 has arrived and we are happy to fill the Metsian void with its presence this offday. The team overall has not done well of late and have brought themselves back to 8 games under 500 after failing to ever reach 3 under. They did have a nice but sloppy win out in Oakland yesterday to remind us of the promise this young team posesses. There is never a limit on the conversations that can be had about the NL New York, so get ready for some eloquent Metsian discourse.

Lucas Duda keeps rounding into 1st baseman form, Zack Wheeler gets better and better every 5 days, Travis d’Arnaud has looked like a legitamate catcher at the Major Leagues, the farm system is on fire, Eric Campbell combatted his first Major League slump, etc, etc. It’s enough to make you forget we probably have one more year of Terryball before Wallyball ?
Anyway, make sure you join us at 8pm ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report.
LIVE AND IN LIVING AUDIBLE COLOR!!!
