Mets 12 - Braves 2
Sorry, Gary Cohen, Ron Darling, Chris Carlin and Bobby O'Hairweave. Tonight's Mets 12-2 thumping of the Braves had nothing to do with Terry Collins and his Knute Rockne antics. Baseball does not work that way. The Mets whipped the Braves tonight because they were relieved to get the hell out of Citi Field.
But wait - isn't Turner Field "The House Of Horrors" for the Mets? Isn't that the place that the Mets can't win? Yes, historically these facts are accurate. But thanks to the pure evil of Citi Field; Turner Field is no longer so scary. In fact, for the Mets Turner Field is now fresh air, sunshine and lollipops. The "Field Of Nightmares" is now Citi Field. No contest. Hands - coming out of the ground - down.
Shamityville HorrorCiti Field was built with, ill gotten, Bernie Madoff funny money and was named after a mega bank that helped to steer the economy into the ground - while raking in outrageous profits off the backs of the poor and working class. Everything about the place reeks of greed and mismanagement.
This is karma. Fred and lil' Jeffery Wilpon and Saul "Fat" Katz slept with the devil and are now are reaping the rewards: a ballpark Mets players can't stand.A place that is so scary it makes Turner Field a safe haven. Nice job, fellas.
