Smell The Mountain Air
Rockies 18 - Mets 9
If you had the pleasure to be in Colorado last night and inhaled deeply, the unmistakeable stench of Flushing Bay flooded your senses. The Mets were in town and the altitude only made it easier for the team to shove their collective head further up their collective ass.
During the game, the Mets completed a feat never before seen on any level of organized ball: The Bi-Polar-Cycle: On the upside, Scott Hairston hit a single, double, triple and homer. On the downside, the Mets committed FOUR throwing errors in one inning. Are you kidding me? What happened to the heads up fundamental ball Terry Collins promised? Hey, Terry...Mets Blob does not care if Ike Davis came down with a case of Mountain Fever when the plane touched down. He has to be in the field for his defense. The guy you started does not PLAY THE POSITION. If Terry gets credit for the gritty, fundamentally sound Mets play, he has to take blame when his team plays like garbage.
Here are the highlights in case you missed them.
