Please use this thread all week to comment on any Mets-specific topic you wish.
It’s been a tale of two months since Francisco Lindor returned from his IL stint. August was not very good, as he returned without a rehab stint and it showed. September has been a lot better. Here is the breakdown:
Aug: 25 PA, .160/.160/.280
Sep: 30 PA, .308/.367/.615
Lindor’s .992 OPS in September comes with a .300 BABIP. Four of his eight hits have gone for extra-bases, including two homers. A couple of 0-4s changes everything because the sample is so small. But it’s nice to see this type of production and hopefully Lindor can carry this on for the rest of the year.
This is a baseball site but most of us are sports fans, not just baseball fans. If you’re an NFL fan, consider joining my knockout/suicide/do or die pool. If you’re not familiar with these, they’re exceptionally easy. You pick one team to win (straight up, no point spread) each week. If your team wins, you advance to the next week. If they lose or tie, you’re out. The only catch is you can only pick a team once.
It’s a $10 entrance fee, with 90% going to the winner and 10% to the runner-up. Last year we had 57 entries in the pool and I hope to have more this season. You make picks online and no one else can see your pick until the deadline passes. Once the Sunday, noon Eastern deadline passes, you can see everyone’s pick. Here’s what you need to do to join. There are a couple of steps but it’s all very easy.
1. Login or create an account at http://www.poolhost.com.
2. Go to the ‘Pool Tools’ menu and choose ‘Join a Private Pool’.
3. To Join the pool you need to enter the Pool ID and Pool Password.
For the Pool ID # type: 79452
For the Pool Password type: justwinbaby
4. ‘Confirm’ to join the pool ‘2021 Do or Die’
That’s it! The next time you login in to http://www.poolhost.com, you can get back to your pool(s) by going to ‘Pool Tools’ then ‘My Pools’ where you’ll see all the pools you’ve joined.
Hope to get a few Mets360 people into the pool this year!
