IGT 6/5, Game 2 - Please Sir, May I Have Another?

Game 2 - Please Sir, May I Have Another?

It's time for a little payback.

I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.

I think this situation calls for the bats to wake up and whack Jason Schmidt and a bevy of relievers around and win 13-2.

And THAT, Mr. Randolph, is why you don't double switch David Wright out of the game EVER EVER EVER.

And Dougie is oooooooooooooooh so close to a home run of his own. He needs a Fonzie-style 6-for-6 game in the worst way.

ScarletKnight41
Jun 05 2005 08:43 PM

So close, yet so far. The little guy and I thought that Minty had that one.

VD pops up for out number 2.

Nice at bat by Minky. He fouled off several pitches before finally flying out to Alou in deep right.

A home run is a good thing, but I wouldn't want to restrict any manager to not ever ever ever on anything.

Benson leads off the third with a double.

Rockin' Doc
Jun 05 2005 09:03 PM

Reyes with another great at bat by the Mets. Mets at the corners with none out in the third.

Bust this thing open boys.

Jun 05 2005 09:04 PM

Joe Morgan went on and on about how power in the Japanese Leagues doesn't translate to the major leagues. This may be true, but the genius' main whipping boy was Kaz. He said that Kaz was a power hitter in the Japanese Leagues, right as they posted a graphic showing that he hit 150 home runs in nine seasons.

Myself, I didn't realize that 16 and 2/3 home runs a year makes a power hitter.

I don't like Joe Morgan.

Jose steals second, and Kaz flies out to the warning track to knock in Benson and move Reyes to third.

One out, 3-0 Mets.

Elster88

Sac fly for Beltran to knock in Reyes.

Beltran hits a sac fly to score Reyes.

4-0 good guys.

Johnny Dickshot
Jun 05 2005 09:09 PM

I like the moving camera along the 3rd base line.

Really nice job by Reyes there, getting a million pitches, then an infield hit, then two bases and a run on fly balls. And nice "producitve outs" by Beltran and Matsui.

ScarletKnight41

Runners on first and second, none out.

Nymr83
Jun 05 2005 09:22 PM

Nice sacrifice work by 3 straight batters (Reyes beat out the bunt) to get 2 runs home!

and what a throw by Castro!! I'm starting to really like this guy.

ScarletKnight41
Jun 05 2005 09:22 PM

The runner on first is picked off, then we finally get a call at first, but a bloop hit makes it 4-1 before the inning ends on a fly to center.

ScarletKnight41
Jun 05 2005 09:23 PM

I see that the new home doesn't have a Sacred Seaver Post yet. Just as welll - I forgot about it until I saw the number 41.

ScarletKnight41

Mr. Wright steals second after singling to start the bottom of the fourth.

Minty walks.

Two on, one out.

ESPN gives us a football update. WTF?

Rockin' Doc

Castro walked, so it really didn't matter, but I like Willie sending the runners there.

Kenson with a chance to knock his counterpart out of the game.

ScarletKnight41

Benson walks to get an RBI. The bases are still loaded for Reyes!

Rockin' Doc

Benson draws a bases loaded walk.

The Mets are one big hit from busting this game wide open. Reyes coming to the plate with the sacks drunk with Mets.

ScarletKnight41

Reyes grounds out, but Minty scores on the play. 2 out.

KazMat ends the inning on a weak grounder. The Boo Birds are in the house tonight.

6-1 Mets after four.

The Fanta commercials are totally stupid.

Rockin' Doc
Jun 05 2005 09:46 PM

The Mets hitters have really been making Schmidt work tonight. He's thrown 98 pitches in 4 innings. Patience has it's rewards.

Mets 6 Giants 1 after 4 innings.

Those are the commercials. I hate them. Hat is too good for them.

Meanwhile, Benson has a quick top of the 5th. 6-1 good guys!

Jon Miller pointed out that Willie is the only rookie manager in the big leagues this season.

He then went on to say that the last time the Mets had a rookie manager was Joe Torre in 1977!

Completely overlooked Davey Johnson and Bud Harrelson.

I actually, for some reason, expected him to overlook Harrelson. As Miller was speaking, I was waiting for him to incorrectly say Davey Johnson. He fooled me.

Will Benson get the complete game?

Or will Willie give Fubar some work? What about Looper-- he needs some work, right?

YES!
We decided last year that a situation like this counts as TH.

ScarletKnight41
Jun 05 2005 10:48 PM

I don't think we can call it Triple Happiness after the suckitude in game 1.

I think we should settle for the fact that it's been an overall good day.

Ooooh, good point. Can someone give a ruling on this?

Diamond Dad

If they win the last game of the day, then it's triple happiness with an asterisk. If I get to fly the flag tomorrow, then the Mets won.

Ring is warming up in the pen. This is perfect time to get him some work.

Fred Flintsone is on call in case he messes up.

Good thread.

Good game.

]Myself, I didn't realize that 16 and 2/3 home runs a year makes a power hitter.


Your point is understood, as well as your greater point that Joe Morgan says things before thinking. But, in his defense, the Japan league has shorter seasons and 16 2/3 is more like 19 1/2.

Not that I expect Morgan knew that.

]Well, I can't remember seeing Mikey do that at first base.


What was that?

Manny Aybar pitched in game one. "Fubar" is kind of cheap shot. The guy hasn't lost any games and, while a 4.44 ERA won't knock my sox off, for the last guy out of the bullpen, I'll take it.

Didn't somebody call for a 13-2 game? We came close.

ScarletKnight41
Jun 05 2005 11:09 PM

And it's over. 12-1 is your final!

Edgy - I disagree with you. Norrin dubbed Manny Fubar on Opening Day, and it's stuck.

Elster88
Jun 05 2005 11:10 PM

]But, in his defense, the Japan league has shorter seasons and 16 2/3 is more like 19 1/2.
I didn't realize this either. Also, I imagine that Matsui had one or two years when he first started where he got less at bats, bringing his yearly average down.

I still don't like Morgan though.

Mets win!

Loopy goes 1-2-3 and the Mets split the double header and win the series!

Their third series in a row--good stuff. A well-deserved day off, then on to a Clemens-less Houston!

Rockin' Doc

seawolf almost called it in the second inning, when he said a 13-2 laugher was in order.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm pretty damn happy. Maybe even three times over.

Swan Swan H
Jun 05 2005 11:22 PM

Anderson just plain dropped a throw at first. He was suitably embarassed, but considering the score was 10-1, it was merely worth a chuckle.
