Here Comes the Pain


Ivan Nova is done for the year. Michael Pineda is done for awhile and who knows if the guy will ever stay healthy (I doubt he will). C.C. Sabathia is on the DL and now Carlos Beltran may join him. Ichiro couldn’t go last night and neither could Shawn Kelly. Some of this is just what happens–guys get hurt, young guys, pitchers, doesn’t matter. But the Yanks have a lot of old guys so you can’t be surprised when their seniors’ get hurt.

Right now, the team is a hurtin’.

Our feelings were hurt by the end of the night as Hiroki Kuroda and bullpen could not hold leads of 4-1, and 7-4, as the Mets rallied for a 9-7 win.


The last insult came when Kyle Farnsworth almost shit the bed in the 9th inning. The Yanks were down by 2 and there were runners on first and third (and the only reason Mark Teixeira only made it to first on his drive to right field is because he’s hurting too). Brian McCann ripped a ball that looked ticketed to right. It’d be good for an RBI and another first and third situation. Except Lucas Duda made a sweet pick and started the 3-5-3 double play to end the game.

I’m sure Met fans expected Farnsworth to blow it. Yankee fans expected him to blow it, too.

So it goes.

Final Score: Mets 9, Yankees 7.

Well that sucked.

Two 3-run leads?

will Brian McCann please pick up the white courtesy phone?

2) Yeah, really. He did hit a smash against Farmaduke, though.

3) he did, to be fair. But it's May 13th, we're past the point of "he got a good swing on it"

I saw an inning of a Met game the other day and it struck me how young all the players looked. While it is never good to have all young players it is just as bad to have all old ones.

This loss hurt my feelings, and made me feel badly about myself.

Man, I was so grumpy after this loss. As a Nets fan, I was burning from that loss just minutes earlier. Then this thing ended and I went all grumpy all over mccann. Then I did something else and forgot haha. Still, I wanted to win one of those games last night.

[6] Me, too.

Losses when I'm away from NYC sting more than if I were watching from NYC. I think it's because I paid for MLB.tv and I don't feel I am getting any return on my investment.
