My NY Mets sketchbook. I create an entry after each Mets game or commentary on the crazy stuff going on around the team.
Nice one Joe! Great game! Thought you might have had Bay with his smile. Heh.
Whew! That was as close as you can come to losing a game. Rivera's overall save rate is just about 90%. So I wonder what it is with two outs, two strikes and nobody on. And Bay is starting to pick it up a bit, too. 12 hits, 6 walks, 8 RBI in the last 10 games.
Let's remember that Bay redeemed himself in this game. I don't hear too many mentions of his two earlier screw-ups, failing to protect the runner trying to steal his first time up and then the inning killing double play later. Yes, the game winner does make up for those! Most exciting game I can remember attending, and I loved how the Yankee fans just all went dumb in a split second after 10 innings of nonstop trash talk.
Good game! Could not have stomached a sweep by the Skanks.Watching the Monday night game as I post. Happy 4th of July Joe.
SAME TO YOU WARREN.THANKS BRO
