RA got knocked around which will happen from time to time but I gotta believe the umps making him cut his daughters’ bracelets off his wrist was a large part of the issue.
RA’s girls gave him the bracelets to wear as he hiked Mt Kilimanjaro this past winter and he still wore then during this stellar season. I guess rules are rules but of its never been enforced up until now why the sudden change in policing the bracelets.
It happened in the second and RA was pissed! He actually struck out the side that inning but that’s the kind of thing that could bug him all game long. I’m sure he was thinking about his daughters, about losing his mojo, about what he wanted to do to the umps… a million thoughts prob went through his head and as a result 3 balls went over the wall.
I wonder if he can’t tie them together to reach around his ankle or something to keep them with him for his next start. I mean if they’re good luck they’ve gotta get back on the mound with him right?
obtw the Mets lost again
