You saw it. Talk about it.
The Mets always play Houston as if they where division rivals. Got to love it. These are the kind of games you live for in the off season. (if you win)
Hi John –
The Mets win another memorable lengthy game in Houston. I remember the 1986 Mike Scott game, but don’t remember how many innings that was – do you?
The Mets didn’t have it last night, but they made up for it with HUSTLE.
BELTRAN JOINS CHAVEZ
WITH ‘CATCH’ OF HIS OWN
Carlos Beltran was the star of the show as he single handedly gave his best shot to quell the moronic Houston “boo-birds” down to a low roar with arguably one of the best catches in the history of MLB. He scaled Mt. Pain-in-the-Ass as I like to call it (just what the hell is a steep grade like that doing smack dab in the outreaches of a MLB main thoroughfare of play anyway, other than to potentially cause injury?), and made a quasi-Willie Mays sideways-type heart-pounding game-saving unbelieveable running catch within several feet of the CF fence for the 3rd out of the inning. Unbelieveable and unforgettable.
Oh by the way, Delgado is quietly ‘comin back’: In the 9 games preceding last night’s game, he batted .382 and last night he hit his 14th HR (a solo shot) at 7:07pm (whooooo! There’s those 7’s again!)
I am sitting here at Fort Dix for my military annual training. I have limited internet access and had no access to the game (not that I would have been able to stay awake). If you can find it, can you post the video for “the catch” that everyone is talking about. Thanks!
Mike Scott never got a chance to pitch game 7….
The 16 inning classic (The Greatest Game Ever Played)...u should read the book. Written by Jerry Izenberg.
The game was started by Bobby Ojeada for the Mets, and Bob Knepper for the Astros….(who pitched a great game until the 9th…....
Shame on you Annie….....
Hope this works Ft. Dix. (PS Check out the comments made by the Houston announcer).
There have been so many games this season that I have prayed will be the real turning moment for the Mets (i.e., no more inconsistency, no more giving up after the 5th inning, etc.). Here’s hoping that last nights win will get these guys back into the tenacious winning mentality they so exemplified last season!
To LoveEmHateEm (RE: Catch)
Thanks for helping Ft. Dix.
Sorry, my mind is frazzled this morning – thanks for the book selection.
You’re right, I should know better.
Annie: Game 6, which went 16 innings was called the “Dread Scott” game, because we were all dreading facing Mike Scott in a possible Game 7.
The game’s nickname was a play on the famous 19th century court case involving the status of Dred Scott, a slave who sued – unsuccessfully – for his freedom, claiming he had lived in areas of the U.S. where slavery at the time was outlawed.
And by the way, I take claim for wondering if Glavine’s evil win would show up. I’m not in the Witness Protection program, so if had named me, fine with me. :)
Also, is your real last name “Savoy,” or is it a play on the famous Harlem dance club of yore that inspired Edgar Sampson to write “Stompin’ at the Savoy,” later recorded by Chick Webb and Benny Goodman?
Thanks for the link LoveEmHateEm. The computer system won’t let me use Youtube, but I e-mailed it to myself and will watch it when I get home or on a different system.
Try http://www.mets.com or http://www.mlb.com
They might have it there.
