Well, That Was A Freebie: Mets-Yanks Gamer II

“I’ve made a huge mistake.” — Gob Castillo.

Such has been the season of the Arrested DevelopMets, as the Yankees got the benefit of a rare gaffe by one of the game’s top defenders at his position. Hopefully there will be no gift-horse mouth-looking as they send work-horse Andy Pettitte to the bump at the Stadium. The Bombers are 9-3 in games where Andy gets the rock. The Mets send Fernando Nieve (who?), throwing his first start in The Show since his big-league debut season in Houston’s 2006 campaign, so maybe Andy knows something about the kid.

It’s one of the FOX games; hopefully you can enjoy some Saturday afternoon baseball on the telly, just as the baseball gods originally intended. Lineups to follow, comment away.

I wish AG, but alas, the game is blacked out, per usual, in good old memphis. so bummed. I guess I’ll just have to gamecast it again.

i really don’t understand the whole saturday blackout policy…what was MLB thinking??? Nothing more frustrating…except voting in Iran perhaps.

struggling…but got out of it. WAY too many pitches. How in the world is his record so good? The guy seemingly gets knocked around every single start…not to mention we are going to have to go to the pen again. not good.

i think i’m now completely forever done with joe buck. wtf?!?!?!

joe buck would have turned babe ruth into a pinch hitter. “wouldnt it really be great to have a bat like that coming off the bench?”

…and here is the meltdown. game is over. realistically, this should be our 5th loss in a row. So much for putting the Sox series behind us, huh??? This team is so frail mentally, how can anyone have any aspirations beyond a first round playoff exit at best? This team is weak, weak, weak…

…and another run. you suck so badly pettitte. really, do us a favor and f-cking retire already. lost 4 out of 5. great job boys. joke of a team.

we cannot get anyone past 3 innings in a start but the Mets get Nieve to give them 6 innings, 2 hits and 1 ER on they road, in Yankees Stadium…

Yeap, I’m waiting for the Yanks to load the bases on a walk, a HBP and a catcher’s interference, after which the catcher will accidentally hit the pitcher in the face with the ball, allowing all three runners to score while the Met infielders collide into each other like the Three Stooges in “Three Little Pigskins.” The umpires will then award the game to the Yankees because they feel sorry for everyone at the ballpark, including themselves, who have had to endure the last two hours of Mets baseball.

Another pathetic effort from the yankees. all around garbage. no pitching, no hitting, no defense…this team is going nowhere. again.

I will be genuinely surprised if the Mets win this game. And yes, I am aware that it is 6-2 National League in the ninth inning. Nothing but a boxscore will make me feel certain about anything about the Mets the rest of this year

Lame. I found out it was 6-2 from a friend earlier on, and wow, they got 17 hits. It speaks how awful the Mets are currently that they got 17 hits and only 6 runs. Of course, the Yanks are even worse than that..
