I guess it should be considered a good thing that I missed a game post, and a winning one at that. Considering I'm in the last week of classes specializing in a field I expect to make a career, it's good to be distracted from the item that normally does the distracting.
Though last night, I had enough gameday in my view to be well aware of the inning that got away. I haven't seen any video or heard any audio, but I did hear that Eric Young, Jr. and Tim Hudson got into a crazy accident during the 8-2 loss. That sucks, 'cause I respect the guy, you know?
Alright, before I add last night's awesome Rising Apple Report podcast, with myself, Dan Haefeli and Rich Sparago, let's look at last night's lineup and consider its strikeout potential at the bottom.
|Atlanta Braves||New York Mets|
|1||Andrelton Simmons||SS||1||Eric Young||LF|
|2||Jason Heyward||CF||2||Daniel Murphy||2B|
|3||Justin Upton||RF||3||David Wright||3B|
|4||Freddie Freeman||1B||4||Marlon Byrd||RF|
|5||Brian McCann||C||5||Ike Davis||1B|
|6||Evan Gattis||LF||6||Kirk Nieuwenhuis||CF|
|7||Dan Uggla||2B||7||Anthony Recker||C|
|8||Chris Johnson||3B||8||Omar Quintanilla||SS|
|9||Tim Hudson||P||9||Jeremy Hefner||P|
I don't even want to show you how many strikeouts it was, though it's nothing insane. I just read about some strikeouts that lead to a rally-kill.
It REALLY sucks that Hef has had two bad starts in a row, but I'm not about to jump to any conclusions considering.
OH! Last question: What the Los Mets' All-Time Record?
Seriously, I don't know, but I somehow remember a bunch of them being losses...
That is all.
Here's the Rising Apple Report.
LET'S. GO. METS.
