Jay Bruce is made of farts and other observations from the last 24 hours.

Good Lord I hate the Mets. I hate them with my entire being. With my entire soul, and the souls of my future children, and their children, and their children after that. I hate them so strongly and so deeply that generations from now, people will be talking about the depth and breadth of my hate.

I hate the Mets so much that I called yesterday’s game thread a game recap. That’s how much I hate them!

We could keep talking about my hatred, but let’s get to the news.

Vince Velasquez had the start he needed to have

Loss or not, Vinny V had a fantastic start. Please read LTG’s game recap, it has many great words about that. Vinny went six innings, he kept his pitch count under control, and took a shutout into the sixth inning. Things came tumbling down after that, thanks to Jay Bruce (more on that in a moment), but it was exactly what he needed. And to top it all off, he did this.

LONG LIVE VINNY V.

Jay Bruce is a fart face

I’m not sure I need to say much to justify this, but here are a few tweets to help you understand why Jay Bruce’s face, and perhaps his entire body, is made of farts.

Breaking News: Jay Bruce is history’s greatest monster

I was actually mistaken before. Jay Bruce isn’t just a fart face. HE’S THE WORST THING TO EVER HAPPEN TO THE UNIVERSE.

I hate this guy so much. And I hate whoever gave him that stupid costume. SOMEONE TELL ME WHICH METS PLAYER GAVE HIM THAT STUPID SHIT SO I MAY RELEASE A NEVER ENDING TORRENT OF MOCKING AND INSULTS UPON HIM.

Maikel Franco is having some trouble

I don’t have much to say here other than this.

Woof. Come back, Old Maikel.

Those bats are amazing.
