Gameday shows the replay of the key plays and its free. It was a good catch.

May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

The Mets announcers are going nuts about calling that play a hit rather than an error. They are already anticipating a possible no-hitter by Gee and wondering if that could be ruled an error after the fact. Let's hope the Jinx is in order.

The much-maligned Clete breaks up the no-no. Who will break up the shutout?

/ edit - huh, didn't realize the backstory to his humble single.

So I have to listen to Gladden today?


@#$%



But he's giving fascinating insights on the value of the RBI as within a player's ability, maligning Plouffe's lack of RBIs in Rochester and Mauer's lack this year.

Gibby is scuffling a little today. Still battling.

Dear Mr. Gardenhire,

Please remove Mr. Gibson from the game before someone gets killed by a line drive.

Sincerely,

The MLB Player's Union

What, 11 base-runners in 3 innings is cause for concern?

Paging Liam Hendricks...please see Gene Glynn.

I hope Gibson has a restful off-season and comes back in good shape. He had nothing today, and not much lately. Time to quit wrecking his confidence.

At least at this rate Gibson won't reach his inning limit until the end of the season.

I gotta admit, I thought he'd be better than this.......I was figuring a 4 to 4.5 ERA this year, but with decent strikeout and groundout rates.

It is amazing how wrong I was this year on Gibson and Worley....both of whom I figured for a 3/4 type this year.
Lighten up Francis....

I appreciate independent-minded announcers who are willing to call out their own team's defense when the situation requires it.

lol ... I didn't mean it 'that' way ... sometimes I need to read my posts more critically. All I meant was that I had a satisfying workout at the gym prior to the game ... an hour with a trainer followed by an hour of Cardio Tennis. It was a good workout. I'm sure Gibson isn't so satisfied with his outing.
