Meet the Mets
So, the Mets gave up another walk-off grand slam in San Diego. Meh. There's so much more going on today than mere wins and losses...
There's also Matt Cerrone taking it to the streets and urging his readers to fight the man.
But, there's always the Oliver Perez situation hanging over our heads. That always manages to kill whatever optimism I had.
Just an enormous day in MLB last night. In case you hadn't heard, Armando Galarraga should have had a perfect game, but for a blown Jim Joyce call on the 27th out. Some great reactions to this story. First off, Joyce seems to have handled this well, apologizing and not being a punk. But also, check out Galarraga's reaction to the call. It's incredibly classy. Of course, the whole saga brings up the instant replay debate. And there's also the remote chance that Bud Selig can reinstate the perfect game. It also brings some focus on umpiring bias in general. Oh, and lest we forget: Austin Jackson had an amazing catch for the 25th out.
Bryce Harper got ejected from a game for arguing balls and strikes. What a punk...
Brian Bannister is awesome.
