Our Team Versus Our Former Players
Our Right Fielder misplays a liner right at him--letting two runners score.
Our Second Baseman throws to the wrong base.
Our Second Baseman also fails to cover the base with a slow runner coming to the bag--after an excellent throw from Our Leftfielder.
Our Centerfielder drops a hard hit grounder with a chance to throw out that slow runner at the plate. But, to be fair, makes a nice catch on a run to the wall in the bottom of the 5th inning.
One of Our Relievers throws a pitch out and Our Catcher drops it for a passed ball.
Our Former Centerfielder smacks a Home Run to Dead Center--that misplayed liner to right and a sacrifice fly--to knock in four runs.
Our Former Starting Catcher knocks in one run and scores another--when Our Centerfielder dropped that ball.
Our Former 2nd Baseman and Pinch Hitter scores on that sacrifice fly for the final run of the evening.
Our Centerfielder also strikes out on three straight pitches with runners on 1st and 2nd with one out and down one run. Our Centerfielder showing Zero Plate Discipline--with the game on the line.
Our Franchise Player hammers a nice Two Run Home Run.
But, Our Starting Pitcher gives up 12 hits in six innings.
Which must only leave Our Manager sullen over the night's effort.
Because tonight everyone witnessed, Our Former Washington Nationals simply beating Our Current Washington Nationals.
Final Score Tonight from Shea Stadium--Our Former Players--My Main Man!!, Schneiderman and Marlon Anderson helping to score six for The New York Mets. Our Team consisting of Zimmerman & everybody else--just three.
And to think--tomorrow Our Washington Nationals get to bat against one of Our Former Starters--Claudio Vargas.
