Braves 5 - Mets 1Okay. Mets Blob will be totally honest. Watching today's doubleheader was a difficult task. September ballgames between contenders and second division teams tend to have an ugly feel. The contending team, for the most part, plays crisp baseball and the team that is out of the race seems like they are mailing it in.
This was the story of Mets vs. Braves today. Any fire that the Mets had early in the year is now fading into the chill of the Fall weather. The Braves, on the other hand, are in the process of sharpening their game for the playoffs.
The only thing to watch right now is Jose Reyes' quest for the batting title. Someone should inform SNY that Reyes batting is more important than filling the screen with Kevin "The Wandering Mannequin" Burkhardt. Kevin blabbing about Mets prospects when Reyes is batting is insulting to Mets fans. If Kevin is to have screen time there are 8 other Mets batters in the lineup. The Blob has no issue with Kevin ruining Josh Thole's at bats. Kevin can bat for Thole for all the Blob cares...Just STOP ruining Jose's at bats with Burkhardt's blathering nonsense.
