The Mets got their biggest comeback win in 11 years as they fell behind 7-0 early, but came back and beat the Pirates 9-8 in the finale of the 4-game series.

I had a whole article written up trashing the team, saying they showed no heart after Terry Collins’ fiery speech Wednesday night, and when I wrote it all it was well deserved. Pittsburgh jumped all over Mike Pelfrey, scoring 3 runs in the 1st, 3 more in the 2nd, and another in the 3rd to make it 7-0. Neil Walker destroyed Pelf in the 2nd for a 3-run bomb off the Dunkin Donuts sign in front of Shea Bridge for a rare no-doubter at Citi Field. The fans were quiet, plastic bags were blowing all over the field, and for all intents and purposes the game was completely over. I know I for one had this one chalked up as a loss.

R.A. Dickey showed great heart and guts tonight, pitching a shutout for 7 innings with a tear in his plantar fascia. However, he gave up 3 runs with 2 outs in the 8th, and with virtually no offense given to him he suffered the loss in a 5-1 Pirates win.

Dickey struck out a career high 10 batters, and cruised through 7 2/3. But in a flash a 1-0 lead turned into a 3-1 deficit as Josh Harrison and Neil Walker had RBI hits to change the outcome from good to bad. Bobby Parnell made his first appearance since April 19, but did not fare any better than he did back then, allowing 2 runs in the 9th to seal the game.

Sorry I Can Smell What Selig Is Cookin’ And I Prefer To Stand Neither Upwind or Downwind From His Flatulence !

I’ve no doubt in my mind that the commissioners of baseball (MLB) , NFL —- NBA and NHL have always considered themselves to be upstanding men and individuals. But as of now I’ve had enough of all four of the quartet. Much like I’m annoyed by anything being uttered from the mouths of the now apparent “King” and “Queen of Pop” music ! To hear the mind cringeing tones of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga is akin to having a hot poker shoved up one’s rectum and being told that you’ll find it all too soothing. And it’s now the same with Roger Goodell , — David Stern and in particular Allan “Bud” Selig the MLB Commissioner. To hear that triumvirate regale with us anything to do with their respective sports is very much like listening to the inane rants of Bieber and Gaga. Ah well I might as well lambast the oafs within both the US Congress and US Senate as well as we’ve yet to have had any semblance of intelligence from either chamber since Barack Obama was installed in office as President. Not that the President himself has done that much to impress me to begin with ! I guess he’s still waiting on someone’s ass to kick after the BP fiasco ?

Wall St , Main St Who The Fu_k Can Tell The Difference Nowadays ?

It’s really asinine to hear these late sports’ radio talk show hosts regale us about how passionate they are abourt sports and how they view it as part of the fabric of society. Well if that means lying cheating and stealing then it now most certainly is . Nowhere perhaps more so than within the sport of MLB (baseball) where Bud Selig and his pals have simply shat upon the fans while trying to portray themselves as the paragons of virtue . And for the imbecile who has his own syndicated late night talk show on Fox Sports Radio please shut the fu_k up once and for all as you’re making a complete ass of yourself kissing and licking the ass of Selig as if it’s actually the nectar of the Gods ……………. for the unitiatated that’s wine.
