So, funny story.
Gmay wrote this in response to Asdrubal Cabrera's bat flip after hitting a go-ahead homerun in extra innings against the Phillies late last September. The Mets needed that win to help clinch a wild card spot, and Cabrera celebrated the hit at the expense of Edubray Ramos.
Last night Ramos was pitching the 8th and Cabrera leads off the inning. It's a 2 - 2 game and Ramos throws the ball right over his head. Who does that in a 2 - 2 game in the 8th over something that happened 6 months ago? He missed Cabrera (and later said it was an accident, although I really doubt it). Both benches got warnings, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin was tossed for complaining about it, and Ramos ended up walking Cabrera. Two batters later Jay Bruce slammed his 2nd homerun of the night which gave the Mets the lead and ultimately the win.
What a weird thing to do.
Ok, back to 2017 baseball!

I was driving home and listening to the game and the Mets radio announcers said the tension went from 0 to 60 instantly. No one saw it coming. And, you're right - it was the dumbest thing to do given it was a tie game in the 8th. Ramos seemed rattled by the warnings (because if he came inside again and the umpire inferred intent, he was gone) and then he walked him and cost the Phillies the game.
The whole thing just made no sense. If I were a member of the Phillies, I'd be pretty annoyed with Ramos over that stupidity.
Kruk fits right in with the look of most of today's baseball players. A scruffy dirtball. Honest to God, these guys with some of their beards and the transfers CDG hair look homeless. Jayson Werth looks like he lives under a tarp by an interstate on-ramp!
What I can't figure out is why the Orioles are "so surprising" according to these articles I read. I mean I know it's early in the season but it's not like they've been a team wandering in the wilderness for years. In fact, through last night's games, they have the 4th most wins in baseball since the start of the 2012 season. In Buck We Trust!
