Green promptly took the card and ate it. His guardian angel gave up and went to Blue Smoke.
Green's wild pitch immediately following the 3-2-3 double play was the deciding run in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Diamondbacks, part of baseball's second easiest schedule down the stretch that the Mets were supposed to dominate. Oh well, another plan gone awry. What else is new?
Ooh ooh, I know what's new: Livan Hernandez second guessing the manager for pinch hitting for him:
"I don't like to come out of games. But it's not my decision. They made, I think, a bad decision."As was pointed out, Hernandez was pinch hit for by Angel Berroa, who's average was 17 points lower than Hernandez. Oh good, another washed up veteran who had one good night and has fooled Snoop Manuel into thinking he's got another Hollywood script on the roster. Awesome. Coming up next:
(... Livan Hernandez comes in for defense at first base in place of Angel Berroa ...)
