Prior Holding The Mets Hitless, Your Correspondent Is Scared Shitless

Posted in Baseball at 1:08 pm by

Cubs 0, Mets 0 (bottom of the 6th)


Mark Prior’s working on a no-no, while John Maine has allowed just 3 hits (and survived a first and second, 1 out jam in the 6th).

(UPDATE : Prior’s gone. 103 pitches, 5 2/3rds innings, 4 walks, and a nice ovation from an otherwise hostile Shea crowd)

Harshly critical of kids playing hand-held videogames in the stands, Gary Cohen was tech savvy enough to ID the Sony PSP, but incorrectly noted a Nintendo DS as a Game Boy. Where Chris Cotter when we finally need him (preferably to ambush the kids, Dom Jolly-style with some kind of monumentally offensive questions that would result in several persons being fired).

I don’t know how much Geico paid Little Richard, but it wasn’t nearly enough.

(UPDATE : still scoreless at the 7th inning stretch.  Maine has 7 K’s on the day and has extended his scoreless innings streak to 17)

    Congrats to the Mets on slowing down the Cub juggernaut. You’ll forgive my attitude yesterday, since in the ’06 season two-in-a-row is a streak to be respected and three game sweeps ” threepeats” border on dynasty. I stay optimistic by noting the comfortable lead the Cubs have over their rivals in Pittsburgh as we seriously get into the second half and every strike counts.

    I take back all the “Why the hell did they sign this guy” comments I made about Valentin.
