The Mets Chronicles – Part 2

Ok.   the win in LA last night shall be called mission accomplished.  Now that it is completed,  shall we rest on our laurels (mom pun intended)  of stealing the opening game or go for the jugular ? Before we broach that topic, let’s go back to stealing game 1 on the road.  Why does it always have to be stealing ?

If you outscore the other team it is a win and should hereby never be called stealing one on the road. Unless they stole some stuff from the Dodgers dugout or took the leftovers from the post game meal back their hotel..  But where were we ?  Yes, Game 2.  Should we be happy with the split now in LA and keep our focus ahead to the Sunday night game with the 49ers,  or do we throw caution to the wind and say just win 2 baby ?    For this I must consult my personal spiritual surfer Guru Bodhi…

Do you think Bodhi would be happy just surfing in LA with one win, and give away Game 2 ?  Nay, Sir Bodhi was always looking ahead to Fell’s Point Australia,

to capture the greatest of waves in the greatest of times. He even did it with Johnny Utah Special Secret FBI agent nipping at his heels !

This is what I believe he would say to the Mets tonight in a pre-game talk :  This was never about money for us.. It was about us against the Dodgers.
Look at it! It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, man! Let me go out there and let me get one baseball game, just one game before you take me in. I mean, come on man, where I am I gonna go? Fans on both sides! I’m not gonna paddle my way to New Zealand! Come on, compadre. Come on!

Bodhi would go for the throat in Game #2.  He would make the Dodger’s his bitch,  run over them like the dirty Dodger dogs they are, the stinking vermin  that they……… OK, I think I went too far there.

Now you may need to channel some of your Giants focus tomorrow night to get this win tonight, but what the heck,  it is not like they are facing Joe Montana.

So they win 21-20 against Colin Kapernicus ?   I’d say that a win is a win,  even if they do not cover the spread….

So my advice to you is to Syndergaard your way to a 2-0 lead back to Shea,  where Matt Harvey shall lead the way.. At least for 3 innings anyway.

One final point… Separated at birth?  You decide…   DeGrom sure did pitch Fine !!!!   (see what I did there??)
