Why You Play All Nine Innings

Friday featured not one, but two of the most embarrassing errors you’ll ever witness in baseball. Behold as these well-compensated professionals forget foundational baseball they learned in little-league. Early in the afternoon, Milton Bradley starts us off by counting to three tossing a fly ball he caught into Wrigley’s bleachers, a time-honored tradition when the half-inning ends. The only problem: it was only the second out of the inning.

For those of you still reeling from the shock of seeing what $7,000,000 gets you, savor the collapse of the New York Mets against the New York Yankees. How bad was it? Sure handed second basemen Luis Castillo dropped the 27th out of the game, and diligent Yankee base runners both scored, winning the game on their last chance.

There you have it, major leaguers proving that not even $22,416,666 makes you immune to mistakes.

Citi Field Asks Its First Phillies Fan to Leave

According to NBC Chicago, the Mets and their hive of scum and villany, Citi Field, asked a fan to leave for wearing a Phillies jacket. Basically, the facts in the situation are these:

  1. The Mets Suck
  2. The Mets will have no Post-Season, again.
  3. The Phillies are going to win the World Series, again.
  4. The Mets REALLY Suck.
  5. Citigroup went under because they’re involved with the Mets
  6. The Rays Suck, too.

I’ve also put a flow-chart together detailing this, however it has been delayed due to the MLB copyright on the Mets’ spine.
