The Bankruptcy Bowl Round 1
The Mets took the opener of the Bankruptcy bowl from the Dodgers tonight 5-2. Rubby De La Rosa held the Mets hitless until the sixth when Ruben Tejada stroked a single which opened the flood gates. Angel Pagan, Carlos Beltran and Daniel Murphy each followed with RBI doubles to put the Mets up 3-2. Jason Bay and Lucas Duda drove in runs in the 8th to give the Mets a 5-2 lead.
Chris Capuano went 6 innings, giving up 2 runs on 6 hits. Chris was not great, but he got the job done. Mets Blob has said it all along. Capuano is a pro and he will give you all he has every time he takes the mound
Bobby Parnell hit 101mph on the gun throwing two dominant innings. Parnell has teased us with his stuff in the past so let’s not get too excited. However, if he keeps throwing like this, look out, the Mets bullpen will go from being a weakness to being strength.
4 of the Mets 5 runs tonight came with 2 outs. The Mets lead the league in two out hits which indicates they are buying into hitting coach Dave Hudgen’s philosophy.
Jason Bay made a nice catch crashing into the left field fence: The same fence that made his head snap back like a Pez dispenser last year, ending his season. Most people think Bay showed great courage catching a ball so close to the wall tonight. Mets Blob thinks Bay was so concussed last year that he has no recollection of the play and thereby, no fear.
Close friends of Jason confirm this theory, saying Bay has no idea he was injured playing ball. Childhood friend, Chet Gordon explains. “We told Jason he was trampled by a moose. That kind of Moose-Induced brain damage is pretty common up here in Canada. So there is no issue with him running toward the fence. But hell will be a crackin’ before Jason runs toward a moose. He’s scared shitless of ‘em now.”
Mets Blobber, Alex, was at the game tonight. He dressed in his alternate road uniform - full Ninja attire – in order to keep the murderous LA fans off his back. To show he meant business during batting practice, Alex threw a Dodger Dog up in the air and sliced it into 100 pieces before it reached the ground.
Lets Go Mets!
