It wouldn't have been so bad if Alex Rodriguez hit a double to bring in two runs. It at least would have been an honorable way to go out. But no, let's drop a routine pop up and turn what was a hard-fought game into a punchline.
That play summed up the past two years for the Mets. It's why they can't catch up the the Phillies when it matters. It's because of shit like that.
If it makes you feel any better the Phills also lost a hard fought game to the Red Sox in extra innings last night. Pretty weak to strike out 20 times in one game. Hopefully there's a little more life today. Well thats all for now GOoD JOURNEY my fellow schmoes.
