Chris Young v Tampa?

Meta v Rays is a weird interleague series

Game thread…


Monday, June 11th, 2012

Of course we got swept out of the Bronx, the painful part was watching a walk-off homer seal the deal.

I pretty much expect to get swept whenever we go to Yankee Stadium so I can’t say I’m surprised it happened but BMF still needed to employ some relaxation techniques and deep breathing to prevent my head from exploding.

First of all Russell Martin’s first HR was a complete joke. His game winner was a legitimate shot but the 2 run shot earlier in the game just barely snuck over the softball wall the yankees play with in RF. 

Of course the softball HR doesn’t happen if Wright’s throwing error doesn’t extend the frame.

Y’know just like Jeter, Wright seems to make an error every subway series as well. 

Too bad for Niece who was outstanding. He deserved a better fate but alas this is Mets v Yanks where things rarely ever go well for the Orange and Blue.

Thankfully we’ve got a day off.

Can’t Take It

I swear there is nothing in sports that burns me up more than losing to the yankees… except for getting swept by the yankees. 

And after 2 anemic offensive showings we’re well on our way to dropping 3 straight.

Suddenly we’re 3.5 games back — ugh bad feeling about where this team is headed… Real Bad feeling.

Why do they even bring Jason Bay back? He’s completely worthless. They should just let him rot on the DL and stay away from the club.

Remember when many of us thought J Bay would crush the Yankees for us just like he did for Boston? 

That didn’t quite work out.

Shoulda Just Forfeited

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

We would’ve saved a lot of aggravation had we simply just not showed up to fri nites game and taken the default 9-0 loss. Instead the @%#€! Yankees pounded Santana and embarrassed our offense. 

Normally I think our youngsters are intimidated by Yankee Stadium but this year felt different. As if our scrappy gang of Mets wouldn’t be phased by the BX. I guess I was wrong. 

Santana you can chalk up to exhaustion from the 134 pitch outing or being off his routine with the extra rest Collins gave him but the bats were SILENCED by Kuroda and the pen. 

Thanks to Lucas Duda we were spared being shut out when he drove in a 9th inning run but I was hoping to see him deposit at least 1 over that joke of a porch in right.

Oh well let’s concentrate now on not getting swept…

Meanwhile is it just me or does Derek Jeter always commit an error when playing the Mets?!?
