If you live in NYC you had to be suspicious of last night’s Rainout especially when the SUN WAS SHINING around 6pm!
I’m going on instinct here but I think it’s fairly obvious whats going on:
• The Mets decided to game the system by declaring a rainout before the umpire crew got control of the situation.
• Management knew the team was shorthanded without Ike Davis and David Wright and rescheduling the game for later this summer would allow both players to return to action thus giving Mets a better chance to win
• By pushing the game to a warm summer day attendance is sure to be better than it would’ve been last night in the midst of a rainy week and terribly depressing month for Met fans.
I’m not mad at the Mets for pulling the plug last night, in fact just the opposite. We’ve seen the yankees pull this crap for years so I’m happy the Mets are finally savvy enough to do the same.
Gotta believe Alderson was pulling the strings here since the Mets have never acted this intelligently before.
