a) So if you try to rob Duda of a home run, he’ll just hit another one later.
b) “We got Captain America and The Hulk” —someone in the dugout.
c) Oh he got an RBI off a lefty too. No big deal. Can it always be July?

Duda, sounding almost annoyed, played down or deflected each question. He tends to keep his answers brief, so brief that they are often followed by a stunned silence.

This dance went on for six questions, about 1 minute 40 seconds total. When the pause grew longer, Duda stared blankly into the distance, over the group, his arms still by his side, as if he had been unplugged.

After Duda was interviewed for this article, he harrumphed, hung his head, and echoed something he said when The Star-Ledger of Newark profiled him in 2012.

“Dude, I’m the most uninteresting person in the world.”

Imagining a 70s sitcom opening credits of Duda harrumphing and then the title THAT’S OUR DUDA! spinning onto the screen.

(pretty good article; the exchange with Terry Collins is kind of heartbreaking)

"Hey, remember when they used to make you play in the outfield?"

deGrom just slipped a note to Duda that said:
Dear Lukie-Pookie,
Thanks for the run support. I’ll pay you back later tonight <3 ;)

I gave us the lead? Well great. Do you realize that in life, none of us will ever come out on top? How can I enjoy this moment with the knowledge that it is essentially meaningless; that one day, everyone who has witnessed this triumph will be gone?

Jenrry Mejia with his customary postgame celebration. Mets win!


On the radio Josh Lewin said &#8220;Mazel Tov!&#8221; because he looks like he&#8217;s breaking a glass while standing beneath a chuppah. All the Mets broadcasters would be The Best if that wasn&#8217;t Jenrry Mejia&#8217;s title.
