How do two infielders come up with off-field-incurred ribcage injuries on the same day?

I believe Wilmer was hurting prior to today.

Leadoff double followed by .... absolutely fucking nothing for the next four innings/thirteen batters.



And, yes, Gary, d'Arnaud has been hidden defensively.
The problem is that he's also been hidden offensively!

Which Mets pitcher has the most Subway Series wins? I'm guessing Trachsel.

so now, even when our HRs are preceded by a walk and a hard smash they still wind up as solos.
And isn't it amazing how often, even when they do hit against the shift, they manage to find the one fielder on the off side?



And now walk-walk-double doesn't score a run!!
It's like they're inventing ways not to score.

I don't know who, but I'm guessing the amount is two or fewer.

That was definitely an interference (obstruction, actually) indication but no way was Cespedes going to score without it so he wasn't going to be awarded home.
What I was worried about is that he was going to pull the idiot move of assuming he was going to be awarded the base and get tagged out as he loafed between 3rd & home.
That came up in a (non-NYM) post-season game a few years back but I forget the specific actors.


That's also at least the second time this season that G, K, & R seem confused as to how that rule works.

Scrappy Eric Byrnes for the A's against the Red Sox.
Cut the crap, Hahn. NO ONE PREFERS THIS!

Yeah, let's issue a few more free passes, nothing bad ever comes from that.

How come you never see a team, when the infield fly rule is called, intentionally drop it to see if any of the runners panic and try to advance?

It's probably been tried, but I haven't seen it in a while. Does one's manhood compel one to prove he can catch the ball?

They get extra base hits with runners on, we get Sac Flies (if we're lucky) so as to keep our one run at a time limit in effect.
