Mets Sleep Through Second Half Opener

• Phillies 7 – Mets 2 •
- Mets Sleep Through Second Half Opener -

Mets Blob wonders why Major League Baseball failed to inform the Mets that the All Star break was over. The entire team looked like they got into Jason Bay’s discount Canadian Ambien, sleepwalking through a 7-2 loss to the Phillies at Citi Field. R.A. Dickey gave up 3 runs in the second inning and that was pretty much the game. Vance Worley cruised through the Mets lineup for his 5th win of the season.

The score was within reason until the top of the 8th when Ryota Igarashi entered the game and reminded Mets fans why Ryota Igarashi should never leave Buffalo. Botched ground balls by Justin Turner and Ruben Tejada loaded the bases to set the stage for Igarashi who threw a BP fastball that would make Robinson Cano’s father proud. John Mayberry Jr. laced the pitch down the left field line for a bases clearing double. The sight of Igarashi bowing his head as opponents fly around the bases is all too familiar to Met fans.
Why is this Man Smiling?

Mets Blob wonders how excited Sandy Alderson got when Carlos Beltran hit a mammoth home run to dead center in the 8th inning tonight. Beltran crushing the ball in games where the Mets are way behind is the Perfect Sandy Storm. Pennant contending teams that are starved for hitting start to up the offers for Carlos and Sandy can justify trading his only slugger because - with each loss - the Mets fall more and more out of contention. Great, let’s lose so Captain Khaki Pants can dismantle this team and show us the money-ball. It is sad when you realize Alderson is rooting for his own team to fall apart.
