Mr Met gives fan the finger, employee done with mascot duty

Mr Met gives fan the finger, employee done with mascot duty

Anthony Rieber has been at Newsday since August 31, 1998 and in his current position since 2004. "Honestly, terrible", he said.

"That's what it feels like, to actually hit a barrel", Thames said after the Milwaukee Brewers' 7-1 win over the New York Mets on Wednesday night.

That's an odd sentence to read, no?

"There's been a lot of games where we think we've got it wrapped up and all of a sudden we can't stop somebody", manager Terry Collins said. The incident was caught on video and quickly went viral, resulting in an apology from the 23-28 team. The Mets outfielder entered play fourth in the league in on-base percentage (.427), tied for fourth in home runs (seven) and second in extra-base hits (16) in May.

Mr. Met has been the Mets' live mascot since 1964.

"We apologize for the inappropriate action of this employee". "We do not condone this type of behavior. We are dealing with this matter internly".

De Lucia said that he and his friends "didn't even say a word" and were "just reaching over for a high five" from Mr. Met.

The Mets are down to their last reliable starting pitcher and on Wednesday night against the Milwaukee Brewers, he was uncharacteristically unreliable. NY has won three in a row and four of five after squeezing out a 5-4 victory in 12 innings on Jay Bruce's walk-off single Tuesday night. The Mets' longest current home winning streak is against the Blue Jays (11 games). The two items are not unrelated.

A look at the stages of Arsene Wenger's reign at Arsenal
Arsene Wenger has agreed to a new two-year deal to remain as Arsenal manager, according to United Kingdom media reports. But with no Champions League action, Wenger may find it hard to improve a team with some fatal flaws.

RHP Chase Anderson (3-1) starts Thursday's series finale for the Brewers, and RHP Zack Wheeler (3-2) goes for the Mets. So much for that idea. And it's been in the headlines previously this season, with a friendly, online back-and-forth with Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard.

Both hurlers have eerily similar numbers but right or wrong I'm not laying the juice here and that's why I'm taking Milwaukee...

In his last two, deGrom gave up one run and 10 hits in 15 1/3 innings with four walks and 19 strikeouts.

Josh Smoker was invigorated by his three-inning relief stint - in which he kept the Brewers scoreless - that culminated with the victory on Tuesday.

Instead, deGrom was using shampoo and conditioner on that hair before the fifth inning.

DeGrom (4-2) threw 118 pitches last Friday at Pittsburgh and became the first Mets starter this year to reach the ninth inning. DeGrom, to his credit, swatted that away. "I couldn't throw the ball where I wanted to, falling over hard to the third base side".

"I was just bad tonight".

Eric Sogard walked on full counts in his first three plate appearances, then singled and flied out. Milwaukee logged ten hits and eight BB with Eric Thames going deep and driving in two and scoring twice while Keon Broxton went solo.
