Last nite’s Chris Young outing was sort of a microcosm of the Met season. The first half was perfect. CY got everyone out in order and pre-All Star Break the Mets got everything breaking their way. Come from behind wins, No-han’s game, a WC chase.
But all of a sudden things fell apart. It happened slowly at first but before you knew it all was lost. CY lost his perfect game on a tough play not made by Tejada. To me that’s a hit. An argument can be made for a home scorer doing his part to keep a once in a lifetime performance intact but truth be told that was a hit all the way.
BMF predicted the second Met no-no would come “relatively quickly” but in Met terms that means just inside 20 years. Would’ve been great to get a perfecto from Young, but it wasn’t meant to be… Just like the 2012 Met season.
