Cubs 11 – Mets 1

The Face of the Franchise

On a frigid night in Chicago, the Mets curled into a ball and napped for 9 innings, getting trounced by the Cubs 11 to 1. Fred Wilpon, in an exclusive interview with Mets Blob said he was not upset by the loss. “I told you we sucked, Blob” stated the elder Wilpon. “You did not want to hear it.”

The Cubs scored 5 runs in the second inning off Jon Niese but only 4 of the runs were earned. Ruben Tejada dropped a popup, which should have been charged an error, and it was downhill from then on. The Mets could have gotten out of the inning with minimal damage but Ronny Paulino dropped a throw to the plate from Daniel Murphy. Later in the game, Paulino threw a pickoff throw down the right field line for his second error. If you want more of the horrid details check out the Mets site:

Jason Bay stated before the game that he guessed the team could use Fred Wilpon’s comments for motivation but he did not think it was necessary. Bay said he thinks Major Leaguers should be able to motivate themselves. Following his comments Bay fell asleep, in the standing position, in front of his locker. The Canadian air brought Jason back to semi-consciousness for a while, giving him enough time to take three useless at bats. Bay later left the game with a right calf injury. Stay tuned.
