thunderstorms & rain crapped  the game on Yes , watched it this am . If you like the HR game this was a beauty CC was still full of party birthday cake and it showed , 1st game of the series , let's see where it pans out , no doubt another arm is in need , we left too many runners on base again . In my mind winning every series is the key to success.

Winning series is fine until mid-august. The last month + of the season  is for long streaks. However, by then it's possible that the division may be out of reach of the rest of the AL East

Being one game behind in the best record for home field advantage is not really concerning now . If we look at history our rotation is not used to pitching in that near important 200 inning mark not to mention what’s going on with the pen , combined with run production , not that silly HR record Then absolutely it’s time to step the rotation up.

Winning every series 2-1 gives you a record at the end of the season of 108-54.

 

Winning the series is fine in April, May, June, July, August, September, October and yes, November.

Say it isn't so, Doc. Very very sad and tragic.   Can he ever turn it around?

 

Dwight Gooden arrested again for DUI in New Jersey

Addled former Mets ace Dwight Gooden was arrested Monday night for driving under the influence after heading the wrong way down a one-way street in Newark, NJ — just weeks after another DUI bust involving cocaine, sources told The Post.

The legendary ex-pitcher known as “Doc” — who has been in and out of rehab for years for drug and alcohol addiction — was a mess when he was picked up near Ferry Street in the Ironbound section around 11:10 p.m., sources said.

“He’d pee’d himself,” a source said, adding that Gooden told cops at the scene that he was diabetic, although it’s unclear if he is.

Gooden was taken to University Hospital in Newark.

The incident was only the latest sad turn for the 1985 National League Cy Young Award winner, who led the Mets to their most recent World Series championship in 1986.

While battling his addictions, Gooden, 54, has had numerous brushes with the law along the way, including in 2010, when he crashed his car in Franklin Lakes, NJ, while under the influence — and driving his then-5-year-old son, Dylan, to school.

Gooden’s most recent previous bout with law enforcement occurred June 7, when he was nabbed by Holmdel, NJ, cops for allegedly driving erratically. Officers later found two small ziplock baggies in his car containing suspected cocaine.

The former pitching great’s trials with substance abuse thwarted his Hall of Fame dreams, which had been fueled by such stellar moments on the field as his no-hitter in 2000 while with the Yankees.
