Phillies 3, Mets 0
Foul Ball Guy might not take much pride in it, but with about 50 people (yes, 50) in the stands, there were so many foul balls to be had. I’ve never caught one…or even picked one up in an empty stadium after many bounces. I should have traveled to Philly for this one.
So yeah, who cares? Nobody. Let’s move on to the issue at finger:
Let me state ON THE INTERNET AND THEREFORE THIS IS BINDING: If Cespedes goes 0-10 or 1-12 or whatever in the playoffs, and the fanbase turns on him (due to media anti-hype) and the Jewpons don’t sign him, then I quit. We hope for the best, but considering the injury, AND the pitching he’s going up against, AND the small sample size, his playoff performance cannot be properly judged. We hope for the best. We PRAY for the best. But the Mets front office is looking for an excuse not to pay him, and having a bad NLDS with semi-broken fingers against historically filthy pitching is just the excuse they want.
So, preemptively, let me state one more time: Cespedes should be a made man and should already be paid.
