Wow… After friday nite’s 9th inning I didn’t think Sunday’s game could possibly be worse… and then it was.
Frank Francisco went Benitez again by immediately allowing the first 3 batters to reach with no out before going crazy on the ump over balls strikes. Acosta almost got us out of it until Giancarlo (?!?) Stanton launched a 2 out, walk off grand slam.
OK Terry who’s next in line for closer? Because Francisco clearly needs a break from his duties at the moment.
FrankFranc lost control of his emotions out there and I gotta believe that convinced TC to make a change.
Collins had the acumen and class not to announce anything during postgame but change is definitely afoot.
BMF loved the TC quote “ I’m not going to address that right now, when emotions are running high.” That was a brilliant look into Collins’ mindset.
Terry also said there are ” 8 options” to close - my money sez Jon Rausch gets the nod. I mean if you have an 8 foot tall pitcher he should be closing for you.
Rubber game today - it’d be another statement to go into FLA and win a series
The best way to answer a walk off loss is to kick some ass the following day which is exactly what the Mets did pounding the Marlins 9-3.
David Wright continued his torrid hitting and is now hitting .402 on the season. Damn this kid is re-establishing himself as an All-Star.
Dickey wasn’t his sharpest but he got the win and aside from that rain game he’s been our most consistant pitcher
Now let’s win this series!
OUCH - that one hurt.
I swear I saw Frank Francisco morph into Armando Benitez in the bottom of the 9th. In fact I’m positive I saw him channeling Benitez.
That L was a kick to the gut 3 different ways:
• We scrapped our way the entire game taking a 2 run lead in the 8th all for not.
• Watching your closer blow it is just so friggin’ demoralizing
• sucks even worse to blow a game against the other hot team in the NL East
Let’s just make sure we win 1 in FLA.
