NEW YORK METS: Everybody Off This Train! We Have A Sick Passenger!
Signal troubles, power outages, complete system failures and sick passengers; - No, not the MTA; I'm talking about the Mets today in Game Three of New York's Subway Series.
Everything was fine. The 7-Train was running along the express tracks for six innings. Then in the seventh, everything derailed for the Mets as they collided with an on coming D-Train just as they were trying to sneak out of 161st Street Station with a 3-1 lead.
...an intentional walk;
a 23-hop grass-masher up the middle by Derek Jeter;
...an anti-Ruthian dink hit by ARod;
...And a single by Robinson Cano off a pitch so predictable it was foreseen in the Bible Code,
...only characterize the way this derailment started. By the time the seventh inning was over, the wreck scene was horrific. There were Blue and Orange shards of 7-Train everywhere. The stench in the aftermath of the seventh inning just made the survivors want to puke.
A loss is one thing. That seventh inning was just what I said; a train wreck.
The Flushing Bisons were as effective holding on to a .500 winning percentage as they were getting out of the seventh inning. They'll get a day off to collect the pieces and reassemble the wreckage before they head out to the Windy City and start a series with the Cubs.
It started out so well too.
