It's now been twice this season that K-Rod buried his head in his glove while Met fans. across the nation, did the same with their hands. First it was Luis Castillo and the walk-off-error, and now it was Mo Rivera and his bases-loaded-walk; all with Franky Rodriguez on the mound. I see our 37 million dollar investment is going a long way against our crosstown rivals.
Furthermore, anyone (actually, it was me) who says that Rivera - not only recorded his 500th save last night - but also chalked up his first RBI, has erred in their speech. An RBI, literally stands for "Run Batted In," and I don't recall Mariano swinging and putting a ball into play last night. Do you? His 500th save and his first RWI (Run Walked In)... there...much better.
Either who, congrats to Mo and his teammates on a splendid victory last night against the Mets Double AA squad and hopefully, when the real Mets team returns from the DL, we'll pick up the pace, make the playoff likes we are expected to and meet you again in the real subway series - the World Series.
That's if you make it that far...
...Send regards to Boston, will ya?
