Are the Mets still reeling from the yankees? Sure felt that way as the defense was shaky, baserunning poor and runners left on base all over the place.
Things just didn’t break our way. From Duda stopping on the basepaths due to a late “send” signal from Teufel to the incorrect safe call when Thole picked off his SECOND runner on the nite, until the ump blew the call.
I hate to see Ike get ejected but he did touch the ump with his glove and once you make contact you gotta go. The ump got the ejection correct but missed the tag applied by Ike on his second swipe. If replays weren’t enough, you could tell by Ike’s immediate and genuine reaction that he indeed applied the tag.
Great to see Collins out there arguing and getting heated. BMF is an old skool guy and I firmly believe a manager arguing can get a team fired up. It’s a less effective tactic on the road because you can’t get the stadium crowd whipped into a frenzy behind you but it still shows the players you’ve got their back.
Meanwhile we’ve gotta win this get away day game today.
Simply can’t lose 3 straight to the crappy Cubs.
