FreakinB: The Cubs scored two more runs later in the inning, after the Mets got over whatever affliction suddenly struck them.


I think that particular affliction is referred to as Being the Mets.

First, subby: The Mets didn't turn it into a "triple". They turned it into a "reached on error". The batter doesn't get credit for a triple if the defense just kicks around a short pop-up.

cameroncrazy1984: The worst thing about that inning was the fact that it happened not once, but TWICE.


Here's how the inning started according to mlb.com:

1.Adrian Cardenas reaches on fielding error by third baseman David Wright. Adrian Cardenas to 3rd.
2.Reed Johnson strikes out swinging.
3.Darwin Barney reaches on fielding error by right fielder Lucas Duda. Adrian Cardenas scores. Darwin Barney to 3rd.
4.Starlin Castro reaches on fielding error by second baseman Ronny Cedeno. Darwin Barney scores.
5.Alfonso Soriano walks. Starlin Castro to 2nd.


That's crazy. I mean, how did Alfonso Soriano draw a walk?

Gig103: Cyberluddite: he hitter is not credited with a triple in that AB--it's treated the same as an out in his batting stats.

That's stupid. Not that it's the only stupid thing about baseball, but the guy got to third base; why isn't that a triple?


Because he was born on third base.

cameroncrazy1984: DeltaPunch: ... or the same people that dust off their Yankees caps whenever they find out they're in the WS again.

My friend was at the Mets/Yankees game on Sunday night with a bunch of people. He was sitting in a section with an obnoxious female Yankee "fan" who kept trying to talk trash with the Met fans. He simply asked her questions like "Who was yesterday's starting pitcher?" and "Who's playing first base?" She obviously shut up after that.


That's beautiful.

SkittlesAreYum: Cyberluddite: DeltaPunch: Do people actually think that subby actually thinks that the Cubs hit a triple?!?

Yes. I can assure you that there are quite a few people out there who would seriously refer to that as a "triple." These tend to be the same people who say the runner scores a "point" for his team when he crosses "home base."

1. "Triple" is much easier to say than a three-word, four syllable phrase.

2. Most people don't care if this is technically incorrect, even if they know.

3. You two should form a support group for baseball fans offended by incorrect terms.


I'm now waiting for:
SkittlesAreYum: I done think this begs a question, irregardless: Is there fans learning?

My friend, you tragically underestimate Yankees fans if you think that getting them to shut up is ever an obvious thing.
