Sit ’em Down John, Sit ’em Down John: Lannan Shuts Mets Out in Return

Image

I am blessed with fame yet again.

Final Score: Nationals 2, Mets 0.

Dame of the Game:

John Lannan: Win, 5.2 IP, 5 H, 1 BB, 2 K, 0 R. Stephen who? In his third start of the year, Lannan pitched excellently to lower his ERA to 2.41. What’s that? Oh yes that’s right, Strasburg. Stephen Strasburg…….god I still miss him.

Shame of the Game:

Jon Rauch: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 K. Rauch immediately allowed an important insurance home run to Desmond upon entering. We can all thank him for his first useful contribution to the world since getting that jar down from the top shelf thanks to his height.

I might be the first person in history to say, “that sure was a fun Mets game, I’ll happily go again soon!” After seeing the Nationals play in Queens on Monday, I decided to go back for Wednesday’s game. It was a thrilling experience, one that I will never forget. Unlike Mets fans, who down a pill bottle after each game to try and develop some sort of amnesia to escape the pain. I took the subway out from Manhattan and found it to be packed. Am I in for a raucous crowd tonight? The answer clearly became “no,” as many of them left 2 stops before proving themselves to be commuters. That “no” was further solidified as I walked past the parking lot, no longer being used as spillover for the US Open.

An empty parking lot. That makes more sense. Also, a thumb.

Final Score: Nationals 5, Marlins 1.

Dame of the Game:

Jordan Zimmermann: Win, 6 IP, 4 H, 1 BB, 0 R, 6 K. Zimmermann pitched a game that even if his teammates gave him the zero run support he expected, he couldn’t lose. They realized this and let Jordan have this game. They combined to mercilessly destroy him however in the postgame tug-of-war match.

Shame of the Game:

Jose Reyes & Hanley Ramirez: Talking too much. Jose and Hanley spent a bit too much time chatting one another up, and were distracted while Bryce Harper stole third base. Serves Jose right for being such a gossip. You promised you wouldn’t tell Omar Infante that I had a crush on him!

Baseball is back. After 2 days of no activity, and 4 days of no real important baseball, the Nationals finally played a game again. It had felt like forever since we last saw this team on a baseball field, but in reality it was only a brief period of time. Well despite the direction the team was going in before the break, I’m excited to see people like John Patterson and Tony Armas Jr. continue to develop.

What do you mean it’s 2012? No, it’s 2006. Uh oh, I must have taken a bit too many sleeping pills to get past the 2006 All-Star Break…
