On A Bizzare Night Of Baseball

In the case of The Mets, I wished that it had STORMED earlier, thus sparing me from having to go out to Shea Stadium to freeze my arse off last night, & watching a Nasty Thunderstorm & Lightning Display, which would make Fireworks Night, look chintzy by comparison:

It was the 1st Inning & Mets Starter Mike Pelfrey, a rookie who's No Seaver, started off striking out the 1st guy, hitting the next batter & walking 2, before Marlins Josh Willingham tripled in 3 runs. You could've turned your sets off right there. He threw 35 pitches in that inning. He would settle down & throw 105 pitches before removal in the 7th Inning;

David Wright Homered last night, making my 5 Pack Ticket worth something;

Aaron Heilman has NOTHING in his sinker, giving up a 2 run homer to Willingham. Perhaps, Dr Bill "Southie" Morgan is in Heilman's Future;

Mets Fans are in agreement about 1 thing-The Wilpons are definitely running a "New Ball Park Fundraiser" as prices have gone up & no real money was spent over the winter for any outstanding players. Besides, they're benefitting from a sold out Fenway Park, as a good # of people from MA & RI, showed up again @ Shea last night;

NOTHING in Baseball is a given. Even Jonathan Papelbon is human. Last night he blew a save & a 2 run lead, serving up a homer to one Travis Buck of Oakland;

Brendan Donnelly gave up a double in the 10th inning to Mike Piazza, now on the 2nd year of his "Farewell Tour of Baseball", now touring the Junior Circuit(American League), followed by a single & a loss of 5-4;

The NY Yankees Phil Hughes had a gem, with a No-Hitter into the 7th Inning;
Wouldn't you know it, his hamstring went bad on him & will be gone 4 to 6 weeks;

Ouch! A 2nd ouch was a 10-1 Yankees Drubbing of the Texas Rangers;

It rained hard last night. Last Night SUCKED;

Mike

They thrive in a warmer environment.
