SLACKISH REACTION: Just like the Mets drew it up. A 2 out rally started by The Virus, some home runs, and then Dom making an error in the bottom of the 9th. Maybe instead of trying to play the right way Mickey should Costanza this and play the WRONG way. I want the Virus in there tonight. No Virus, no rally.
I didn’t like the game as it was like 3 and a half hours long. i’ll take those 2:27 losses please.
Here’s an interesting one. This call has very good enthusiasm. And yet it ends with “…to the wall, it’s outta here” which is a lot like ending your call with “…it is far, it is gone” even if some of you can’t and won’t admit that it is.
The Mickey Watch Watch watches to see what others are saying about a possible Mickey Watch.
And both, almost in a flash, moved from that early magic to looking overmatched (at first) in the job and then, ultimately, overwhelmed. Their teams — both saddled with preseason expectations — quickly became not just bad but unwatchable, replete with head-scratching decisions and cliques of vast underachievement. And that was before either of them opened their mouths.
