Because of various television contracts, etc, I was able to watch the Orioles on TV, but not the Mets and my dad could watch the Mets but not the Orioles. So I didn't get to see, only hear, Braden Looper give up three runs in the bottom of the ninth to blow a 6-4 9th inning lead. The loss took a lot of the luster off of the wonderful debuts of Pedro and Beltran.
However, unlike some people who get so wrapped up in every game, I'm not going to freak out. It is just one game. The sky is not falling. Maybe the Mets will only win 83 games this year instead of 84 but in the grand scheme of things, I can't get too bent out of shape.
But then again, it might just be because I couldn't see the damn thing.
Rodrigo Lopez looked great though, huh?
