Settling the Scores: Wednesday’s results


How ya doin’, Mets fans? Giants fans? Cardinals fans? Everyone doing OK? No? Well, that’s a shame. If it helps, all three of the teams y’all root for are less-than-inspiring at the moment.

The Giants got blasted by Yasiel Puig and the Dodgers and are back to six back in the NL West, which we can basically call for the Dodgers now. The Cardinals had won four in a row but got hammered by the Rockies yesterday. Expand that timeline a bit and they’re 4-4 in their last eight. The Mets? Hoo-boy. They let the Braves come into New York and sweep them. And the way that game Endered, er, I mean ended last night was something to behold:
