METS FANS ARE A BUNCH OF CRAB APPLES

Back from a day at $iti Field and a Mets 9-7 victory that was nearly blown by the bullpen (Sean Green in particular) and a 5th inning melt down by Big Pelf, who was cruising after 4 innings inducing ground ball out after ground ball out but in the 5th he unraveled, then got back on track in the 6th and 7th. Pelfrey would be a psychologists delight.

I was sitting in the Pepsi Porch today and after the Tatis homer the Home Run Apple did not go up probably due to the fact it hasn’t had a lot fo work this season and after the Schneider HR must have thought it’s day was done. A bunch of kids sitting in back of us started chanting “APPLE, APPLE, APPLE” and then the whole ball park joined in to scream “WE WANT THE APPLE” We had to wait until the end of the inning to get our second Apple raising of the game.

Tonight at 10 PM EDST  I will be a guest on Frankie The Sports Guy radio show tune in by clicking here.

  1. I tell ya, even when things go right, they go wrong for the Mets. I guess your right, the lack of use of the Apple showed today. A little rusty so it didn’t pop up. I’m just glad they won and are going into the break on a positive note.

  2. Howie was laughing about the apple thing. He couldn’t get over it and said, “It’s not just kids who are chanting either.” Wayne just assumed the apple had gone on an early All Star Break, what with the 9 game homer drought.

  3. The Times says the apple needs two and a half minutes to reset. I don’t remember that being an issue with the old apple. Was it?

    Why do I care?
