The Mets’ opening series in DC wasn’t short on theatrics. Benches clearing “brawl,” a lights-out delay, rain delay, grand slam, Max Scherzer’s return to DC in his Mets debut, Sunday drama and so much more. All in all, it was a success for the boys in orange and blue, taking three of four from the Nationals before they head to Philadelphia to take on the Phillies.
To talk about the Mets’ 3-1 start to the season, we bring you a new episode of the “Amazin’ But True” podcast with Nelson Figueroa and I. Barstool Sports’ resident Mets superfan Frank “The Tank” Fleming joined us in the second half of the show.
Amazin’ But True’ Podcast with Jake & Figgie:
- SUNDAY SCARIES: Mets fail to get the four-game sweep against the Nationals on Sunday. Pete Alonso’s soft toss home and offline throw to second base were the big difference. That is not on Trevor Williams. Buck Showalter wanted to get everyone in and he accomplished that over the weekend.
- ROTATION DAZZLES: Tylor Megill, Max Scherzer, Chris Bassitt and Carlos Carrasco all pitched very well. Scherzer made no excuses after a 15-minute delay because the lights went out. Showalter has life in this team as everyone defended Francisco Lindor after the fourth HBP in two games.
- NATIONALS PARK DISASTER: Lights went out, no straws, steak sandwiches without bread, no garbage in men’s bathroom, kiosks to pay for food, metro closing at 11, fans were lacking. It was a struggle in DC opening weekend.
Frank Fleming Interview:

- FAN EXPERIENCE: Nationals Park is below average. Scoreboards don’t show enough information, food not great, staff was nice though.
- ALONSO: Should Mets start Dom Smith at first base more than Alonso?
- BUCK: Showalter brings a different feel to this team. You trust the decisions he makes more than you did with Luis Rojas.
