Well, I didn't go to Coors Field tonight, figuring, correctly, that the game would get banged by rain. Doubleheader tomorrow but I don't think they'll get them in since the forecast is "crappy followed by more crappy with additional crappy sprinkled in."
So, my backup plan was to watch the Yankees take on the Tigers. Well, that game was also called due to rain.
Alright, I'll watch the Nationals play the Mets. Things were great until the 8th when the Mets rallied from a 6-2 deficit. Tyler Clipper messed the bed in relief. He was so bad I wanted to grab a bat. Mets won it 8-6. Ugh.
By the way, I do like the look of the Mets new ballpark. However, it just doesn't look right with the Mets playing at Citi Field. They look out of place and I wish they were still playing at Shea Stadium. Shea has been leveled of course and it was a crummy place. But I had some good memories of going to games there, mostly when the Mets lost. Also saw a bunch of Jets games there in the Joe Namath era. Funny, schools and bridges are falling apart in New York City, there are budget shortfalls all over the place, buildings are crumbling, yet NYC saw the need to build two brand new baseball stadiums. There is no reason that Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium couldn't have lived another few decades.
