Final Score: Braves 5, Mets 3.
The Mets can’t win in Turner Field.
The Mets can’t hit for shit.
The Mets can’t play defense.
This was a game the Mets should’ve won. Flores’ 2 errors and David Wright’s mental error (not getting the sure out at 1st) led to 4 runs for the Bravos. However, I can’t put it all on that. The Mets still look like they have no offense. The Braves no longer have Kimbrel, Venters, O’Flaherty, or Medlen. We should be able to score off of them. But we can’t because Metsblow.
P.S. How fucking insufferable is the Tomahawk Chop? People are putting pressure on the NFL to force the Washington Redskins to change their names. What about the Atlanta Braves? Their grossly intolerant chant (that is heavily supported by the organization and stadium itself, as noted by the horns trumpeting the chant and the jumbotron broadcasting the cheer), really rubs the genocide in, doesn’t it? It’s schadenfreude. It’s disgusting.
