Thru This Game

I was pretty much about to throw up at the end of this game. I don't get SNY where I live so I have to periodically check ESPN for the Mets score. First they were up 8-0 and I was so happy thinking what a way to take 3 out of 4 from the first place Phillies. Then checked it again and it was 10-1, then 10-2, then 10-3, then 10-5. At this point I getting nervous because I knew the Mets still needed 6 more outs and getting 6 outs against the Phillies is not an easy task. Then 10-7 and Billy Wags coming in to seal the deal, 10-9. This is the point where I am just about to go into the bathroom to puke up when the final score flashes on the screen, Mets win 10-9! Love the fact the Mets took 3 out of 4 in this series and was also impressed by Pedro's bounce back start, however I would love to see Minaya go out and get some more bullpen help because last night really exposed a glaring weakness with this team.

This game was eerily similar to that of 7/25/90, which the Mets also won, 10-9, in Philly...the Phillies scored 6 runs in the ninth inning of that one, prompting Bob Murphy's unforgettable, uncharacteristically risque exclamation, "The Mets win the ballgame! They win the damn thing by a score of 10-9!"

I was watching on TV, and I started thinking about the 1990 game when it was 10-3, and looked up the box score on here when it was 10-5.

This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings.
