Meet the Mets! Meet the Mets! Step Right Up and Beat The Mets!
The Mets started a new tradition tonight. Instead of a turning back the clock and wearing retro uniforms, they decided to play like a turn of the century team by committing six, count 'em six, errors in losing 11-8 in Monteal.
Robbie Alomar, who my friend Mike suggested the Mets have a promotional bobble glove doll for, collected three all by himself.
In a night of odd pitching lines, John Thomson may top them all: 4 innings, 9 hits, 8 runs, only 2 earned runs, 0 walks, 3 K's, 2 home runs (therefore the 2 earne runs), and 56 strikes in 72 pitches.
