Cat Scratch Fever - 6
Keith went off this inning about how he doesn't like Wade Boggs, saying "it wouldn't surprise him" if that whole Hall of Fame hat/D-Rays/payola thing was true. Me neither. What a jerk!
Cat Scratch Fever - 5
This inning's major concern is what exactly is going on with Los Beltran's hammy, as he has exited the game. Since the Mets' dugout is run with the iron-fisted oversight of Chinese President Hu's press outings from the South Lawn, we may never know.
Cat Scratch Fever - 4
You know what else is creepy? That guy in the Harry Potter movies who looks exactly like Elliot Smith.
Petco Park strikes me as a ballpark that would be tons of fun in video games. If a bunch of 8-year-olds could create dimensions to a ballpark, it would look exactly like this.
Cat Scratch Fever - 3
We scored. They did too.
Cat Scratch Fever - 2
Keith Hernandez hates to flaw across the country. And did we ever hear about it this inning. He abhors it. Had to wake up at and fly to one of the most dangerous airports in the country. The airport is right downtown, and it's always foggy. Keith was so generous as to point that out. Keith also loves old Jack Murphy Stadium, which he says is "well-manicured." Hmm.
David Allen Wright had a nice double. He didn't score.
Our own Edward Norton Look-alike shut down the Padres side. 1-0
Cat Scratch Fever - 1
I'm going to try to blog after every inning tonight in honor of the Metropolitans first game against a newly emancipated Mike Piazza. We'll see how long this lasts. Someone remind me I have pizza in the oven.
I like Dave Roberts because of the pain he's caused Yankee fans, but doesn't it seem as though he's always standing on third base?
Mike Piazza has some kind of baby wooly mammoth growing on his face, or some absurdly thick goatee. He's also wearing #33, the same number as another
"It's just a game, man."
Coming tomorrow, though, my hand to David Allen Wright, will be several updates, including a new unbridledly optimistic win total prediction, new (hopefully) magic number, new nady stats, a new BBPOTS player of the game, and a new recap, albeit with the analytical perspective of someone who didn't actually watch the game. I write this I am also in the first stages of conceptualizing a "Wild Card" entry for tomorrow, as well. So buckle your seatbelts, faithful of the Flushing fighters. I shall return.
