Pirates 4, Mets 1
Last night, the most obvious thing in the history of mankind since people discovered religion was just a farce for power happened. The thing: A good pitcher mowed the Mets the fuck down. The Mets lone run was UNEARNED, and wouldn’t have even scored if not for a wild pitch. Though that’s not an error on the scoreboard, let it be said that it took 5 outs to get the Mets lone run. Oh and by the way in that inning, we didn’t get the tying run home from 3rd with one out.
Also in obvious news, the Mets are no longer in a playoff spot. Technically we’re “tied” with the Cubs for a WC, but nah. Nope. We’re out. Game over, man. Game over.
Have you guys noticed that we’re the slowest team ever? In MLB 2K15 our team speed is a 0.5 (.5 for Lagares). 2 caught stealing in 2 innings. Remember when Wright tried to steal? He might miss all of 2015. Gee and Niese for Revere and Victorino, respectfully? They’re similar. Revere may be a blossoming youth but Vic’s got the chips. How about Gee and Niese for ARod?
I actually like the fact that Mets are
stealing attempting steals. God knows we can’t get runs otherwise. It’s a joke. Murphy was out by a hundred miles. But I get it. I get why Terry would do it and I’m not mad at it.
Lucas Duda, our best defensive infielder BAR NONE (not to mention obviously our best hitter by a hundred million miles), made an error that was scored a hit in the 2nd inning. It was an error. “Home book call,” as Keith said. It rattled Thor a bit, cost us a couple of runs, and that was the game!
After the Pirates batted somewhere in the middle innings, I went to pee during the commercial break. I came back and it was a commercial break. I thought maybe it was just a long break, or an injury. NOPE! Just a double play and the fastest half inning ever.
A good thing about the Mets: With the exception of when we get shelled (like we did twice against the Cards), the games are SHORT. Double plays on double plays. End the suffering quickly.
Jung Ho Kang (a gold glove winner in Korea) dazzled in the field. He made a play that no Mets SS makes in a million years. He also had an RBI. If only Jeffy Wilpon hadn’t explicitly told Sandy, “no chanks.” Sandy replied, “OK, and besides, we’ve got Flores! We don’t need a gold glover who bats .300 and also plays every infield position. Our bench is full, anyway.”
P.S. What a fucking douche home plate umpire. Horrendous anti-Mets calls (look at the K-Zone analysis; it was blatantly biased) and more importantly, he wore short sleeves in 30 degree weather.
