Cubs 5 - Mets 4The Mets squandered a great start today by Chris Capuano. 5 errors were committed by the Metropolitans and the bats were asleep until late in the game. Mets Blob feels today was another example of something the Yankees do better then the Mets, drink. Yankee greats like Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle could pound drinks all night and then pound the ball around the park the next day. The Mets had to have tied one on last night after their dramatic walk off win. It was Friday night in NYC why not?
Last night's hero Justin Turner was scratched from today's lineup due to a "virus." Mets Blob is pretty sure Justin was suffering from the "Ketel One Flu." It is possible Justin caught a bug from Willie Harris' dirty celebratory post game face pie. But The Blob is sticking with the Ketel One Flu.
David Wright and Jose Reyes had 2 errors a piece and until the Mets came back to take the lead in the bottom of the 8th the bats were dead. Jason Bay remained hot going to 2-4 but Canadians are used to a higher alcohol content in their beer. The comeback was once again wasted when Bobby Parnell came in to close it out in the 9th and after David Wright's 2nd error of the day, shit the bed again and blew another save, and the game as the Mets were all out of comebacks.
