• Letting Bay Bat Was A Mistake •

• Marlins 4 – Mets 1 •
Flushing Bay

The Mets fell to the Marlins tonight 4-1 in a makeup game at Citi Field. The Mets already depleted lineup took another blow early in the game when Scott Hairston was forced to the bench after fouling a pitch off his shin. Chris Capuano hung in there for 7.2 innings, giving his usual professional performance. Mike Pelfrey should be forced to study Capuano tape to learn how a pro is supposed to carry himself on the mound.

The Mets loaded the bases with one out in the 9th for Jason Bay. The right move would have been to bring the flu ridden Carlos Beltran off the bench to bat for the feeble Bay but Terry Collins did not pull the trigger. Instead we were treated to the sight of Bay lofting a harmless sacrifice fly to center to score the Mets only run. Bay apparently thought this was an accomplishment; high fiving and fist bumping his teammates in the dugout. Mets Blob was disgusted by Bay’s antics. It was a 4-1 game, Jason, and you made the second out in the bottom of the 9th. The Marlins are looking for outs in that spot and were thrilled when you hit your fly ball. Look, we know you have lost the ability to play the game but you must be aware that a sac fly in that spot is meaningless.

Maybe Beltran’s weakened Theraflu condition scared Collins away from making such a bold move. Nonsense. Beltran could roll into the batters box in a wheel chair and be more of a threat than Jason Bay. No joke here. Mets Blob is serious.
