Sorry for the late post. The boys try to wrap up their series on an up note this afternoon against the Braves. Damn that split yesterday. They let the Santana game get away. The sweep would have been sweet, but they came back strong which was a real positive sign. Losing like that, then coming back with a rookie, could have made for an ugly day.
A couple of notes:
-Damion Easley aggravated his right quad yesterday and underwent a MRI. We should know the results during the game. It doesn’t look like he’ll be available for the first couple of days of the Washington series.
-Look for Brandon Knight to start Wednesday in Washington.
Here is the Met lineup:
SS Jose Reyes
LF Daniel Murphy
3B David Wright
1B Carlos Delgado
CF Carlos Beltran
RF Ryan Church
2B Luis Castillo
C Brian Schneider
LH Oliver Perez
Looking forward to talking with you throughout the game.-JD
An hour-and-a-half isn’t that bad a wait before a game gets called, especially this late in the season. Nonetheless, there’s things teams do during rain delays that really hack me off.
First, there’s little communication, if any, about the weather and the possible length of the delay. Personally, I think after an hour you should be entitled to leave with a full refund.
Second, and this is really a pet peeve, is you should be entitled to a full parking refund. You paid to park to watch a game. You didn’t get the game. Since you wouldn’t have parked there without the promise of the game, you never would have been there.
It is shameful you don’t get your money back.
Last night’s tickets aren’t any good. You could attempt to trade them in, but there’s little availability. There probably won’t be much availability the rest of the season, either. Here’s where the Mets should step up and list a full account of what’s left and issuing refunds.
The Mets lost a coin flip today against Philadelphia. If the teams haven’t both clinched at least the wild card and tied for first at the end of 162 games, the one-game tiebreaker will be in Philly. If they’ve both clinched a playoff spot, the Mets would win the NL East because they took the season series.
