At the risk of sounding like a broken record (can I still use that expression?) I love the way Gee battles. He may not always pitch well and/or win, but he almost never melts down. Today, after a hbp which wasn’t, an error on what should’ve been an inning-ending double play, then an actual hbp, he still escaped the inning unscathed. I’ll take him on my team over more talented guys any day.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Pagan popped up on a down and away changeup on 2-0. Why the f*ck would he be swinging at that pitch? Just another moment in the career of Clueless Angel.
Gee looked exhausted in that 5th inning. Of course, walking guys and throwing a ton of pitches the previous two innings on a sweltering day will do that to you.
Btw, for those claiming Jurrjens going to DL will hurt Braves badly, keep in mind he hadn’t won’t a game in a month and was getting rocked his last 4 outings save one decent effort against the punchless Pirates.
Are you effing kidding? Is Murphy seriously injured because a career minor-leaguer doesn’t know how to slide? I really hope not but knowing the Mets, he’s likely done for the year. Hey Tejada, pack your bags, you’re coming back to the big club.
With the game on the line it can’t be done but I wish the Mets could retaliate for what was an absloutely dirty play by Costanza.* Unintentional or not it was flat out dirty. When Gary and Ron were recommending walking Chipper in the last inning I was thinking more along the lines of drilling him. Same result anyway.
So that last inning was why stats and box scores don’t tell the story. Gonzales gets on base on a popup, then Chipper grounds a ball that finds a hole. It’s not like Parnell was terrible but it looks bad in the box score.
These will be my last rhetorical Clueless Angel questions. Can somebody explain why he didn’t bunt at the 1-1 pitch? Since he was bunting, a low fastball is the easiest pitch to bunt. Was he trying to work the count to get a better pitch to bunt? He is as dumb as a box of himselfs!
Nice homestand …lose 4 out of 5 against teams you needed to beat and a lucky rain out!
You just watched the funeral!…..Howard whats next?
Good NEWS!!!!!….plenty of good seats will be avaiable for the rest of year….no lines at the concessions…everybody can catch a foul ball….your own personal vendar….you can get back to nature only crickets and tumble weeds will be there!
If you see that picture on Mets blog, that’s exactly what I was doing when my left leg went in two different directions. Couldn’t put weight on it.
He’s done. I almost threw up watching it, reliving the pain.
Get well Murph, and get a second opinion lined up now.
Tejada at 2nd but somebody’s gotta play out this melodrama at first.
Reyes, okay, mild sprain, but Murphy’s done. Let the kids play, bring them all up.
i know that most Met Fans understand that this season is a complete waste, but that still doesn’t mean i enjoy losing games. i feel the most for long time fans like myself, who are getting up in years and are the worse for wear. who knows how many seasons we still may have. i’d really like a WS win, before the final inning
foxster: you’re bumming me out. I don’t think this season is a complete waste. Granted, we’re not winning the wild card. Especially now. But hasn’t it been fun to watch this team most of this year? They have a lot of heart, and a lot of interesting and talented kids. Maybe one day when we get to that WS you’ll see Duda and Turner and Gee and Niese and a few others on the roster and you can say you remember them back when. That’s part of what makes it great, isn’t it? The “miracle” and the “amazing” Mets years were so great to watch, partially because of all the Mets baseball history that came before. Remember Seaver’s rookie season, or Gooden’s, or Straw’s–you could just feel things building. Hopefully, in the not-too-distant future the Mets will put all the pieces together again. Meanwhile, we’ll always have Paris…..
