Mets Game 12: Loss to Rockies

Rockies 8 Mets 4

There is no truth to the rumor that the Mets received a five-yard penalty for too many men on the field as the result of stationing a snow man in short right field; that was actually Daniel Murphy.

Mets Game Notes

Not a good line from Dillon Gee. However if you were worried about David Wright‘s lack of homeruns through the first eleven ballgames, that concern should now be assuaged.

I’m not going to try to comment on this game, because I admit to not seeing it. Because of the weird start time and my dizzy day at work, the DVR wasn’t set. I did catch the last two innings on the radio while screaming at people on the Long Island Expressway on my way home.

So if you have any thoughts on what you saw, please type them up in the comments and we can all converse. Thank you.

I do have one thing to contribute, though. It’s a fun piece of trivia with which to stump and dazzle your friends, taken from the radio broadcast: what number was Ike Davis wearing when he made his MLB debut? It was “42” — his first game came on Jackie Robinson Day.

    It’s true, Gee looked awful. Everything was flat. I think his arm has dropped and he’s not getting on top of any of his pitches. No command, no velocity, and no bite. He also threw too many fastballs; his slider and curve looked better, but he didn’t use them much. The change-up was bad, but it’s easy to blame the weather for that one. More concerning is the fastball.

    Duda took a 2-1 fastball away from a pitcher who was very obviously going to throw a fastball away. It was a decent pitch, but still, if you can’t hit that in that situation, something’s wrong.
