After going 0-5 last night in Pittsburgh, Jose Reyes found his groove again in his 31st multiple-hit game, against Pirates starter Charlie Morton.  Morton performed the worst start of the season, allowing 7 runs with 6 earned and nine hits in less than 5 innings.  While his backup defense wasn’t doing too much for him as the pirates 44 game errorless streak was snapped tonight, Morton and his missteps like the Mets 5 run 4th inning were in the spotlight.  Although the offense contributed 8 runs to this Mets second straight victory, the real story lies with Dillon Gee.

Dillon Gee, allowing 1 run and 8 hits over 8 innings, expanded his record to 7-0, becoming the first Mets rookie to do so.  As Gee has allowed only one earned run or less in three of his last five outings, the Mets offense doesn’t have to do much, but tonight they did.

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.

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.
