Man that was a helluva game by RA Dickey… until the 8th.
RA K’d a career high 10 batters and dazzled until he surrendered 3 in the 8th inning. Under normal circumstances 3 runs wouldn’t mean an automatic L but for these Mets it does.
The Mets haven’t homered in 10 games - their longest streak since 19 freakin’ 80. Granted Wright and Ike have been out but jeez this is embarrassing. I’m not gonna get on Beltran but there is ONE player on this team who is painfully devoid of the HR’s he’s being paid to deliver… No need to even mention player by name.
Ugh, Ike is now in a boot for 3 weeks? And we’re hoping to get him back before the All-Star break. It’s typical Mets. Ike gets hurt, because no one calls “I got it” and says he thinks he’ll play the next day. Then he hits the DL and 2 weeks into rehab he’s told to wear a boot for 3 weeks. Unreal.
Meanwhile my buddy is working on a Brand New baseball game called GameSlam - the guys behind the Buckner video.
It’s a good way to test your ability to predict what’s about to happen in a live game you’re watching. For instance what the next pitch will be, whether the batter will single, double, K, etc…
It’s an interesting evolution of a baseball game on the web. And perhaps a cool way for Met fans to remain interested in baseball long after we fall out of contention this season… if that hasn’t already happened!
