It’s like Ruben Tejada and Justin Turner were in quicksand … the optimal surface to not turn the 57 double plays they had a chance at Saturday night. Plays that should have been double plays were actually fielders choices … like the fielders would actually choose these endings. But let’s face it, when Aubrey Huff and Pablo Sandoval beat your throws, it’s a sign that it just isn’t your night (or it’s a sign that more players should consider a low carb high protein diet over the winter.)
Not like they got any help. Not from Lucas Duda at first on the throw on the first double play, or the rest of the lineup against Tim Lincecum who danced his way around some walks to pitch just well enough to send the Mets to a 1-2 record for their own personal Pledge Week. Sunday night, more hazing on national television against Matt Cain. Thank you sir, may we have another?
