The Royals’ scouting report at the beginning of this series: The Mets can’t play D!!! Just make contact!! Every game has been the same. I give them 1% credit for putting balls in play and 99% goes to the Mets choking. Maybe we win tonight, but the Metsbloooow.
It is essentially little league where you just intentionally get into a pickle because you know they’ll fuck up. It’s “bad” baserunning but it doesn’t matter.
