Ok, so I’m not going to gloat after last night’s amazing win because every time I gloat the team immediately goes in the tank. But can someone please explain to me why these two teams don’t play each other a single time in the last 3 weeks of the season? Did no-one at MLB get the memo that this is the best new rivalry in baseball? Did no one see any of the epic battles these two had last year? Did no one really think that these two teams would really be fighting it out for the pennant come September? Because if so, why in the world would they only schedule 3 games between these two in the most exciting month of the season?
Mildly amusing moment last night at the Bards. With two outs in the 9th, Eric Bruntlett comes to the plate. “Game over” I scream. “This guy may be the worst player in the major leagues. I’d rather them bat Cole Hamels in this situation.” Next pitch is a double into the gap, scoring Werth (who woulda been out if the Mets had made a good throw home). “Eric Bruntlett! I love that guy! Nobody believed me when I said he was a gamer. I always believed in him!” Great win last night. Great win.
