Paul Hardcastle

Game 138 - Mets

Mets 11, Reds 7
Record: 78-60

My last post was filled with philosophical questions and big-picture musings. This one . . . uh, Paul Lo Duca hit two-three run homers against a sagging franchise and Oliver Perez was the second straight Met starter to issue a fair-at-best outing and get the win. Stirringly recapped by yours truly, no?

Twice in a row the Reds have tagged the Mets' pitcher in the early innings and, aided by some lackluster defense, managed a lead towards the middle innings. Twice the Metbats have come alive against shoddy Cincy pitching and put up crooked numbers galore, thanks at least in part due to yet another case of asinine architecture. The Reds have enough tradition that they and their fans deserve better than this silly little park.

Headed back up to the tri-state area tomorrow at the crack of dawn, counting down the days until I visit Shea for the first time since Game 7 last year. Can't be a result any more heartbreaking, and I'm quite sure the seats will be better. Five wins in a row after the implosion in PA. Read below for why I won't try to make any sense of it . . .
