Update from Kevin at Shea:
The Mets have somehow failed to score a run over nine innings and are tie at 0-0 with the Rockies in the top of the tenth tonight at Shea.
El Duque was masterful, giving up four hits and striking out five in seven innings. Aaron Cook was pretty darn good, too, allowing six hits in seven innings for the Rockies.
There’s is no end in sight in this one, not when you consider how many men the Mets are leaving on base.
Personally, I don’t love using Julio Franco to pinch hit there in the seventh. Not with two outs and two on. Maybe I’m biased to senior citizens, but I’m not sold that Franco is going to contribute off the bench in a clutch spot. Give Endy a shot there. He’s only hitting .364.
Am I wrong?
