METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 7, 2007 GAME:John T Greenpoint
May 8, 2007
This is a fine example of how great this game of baseball is and how it can humble you at times during a 162 game season.
First baseball might have to take a long and hard look at instant replay just for home runs. Because this is twice in less than a week that the Mets have been victimized by a wrong home run ruling.
Second the Mets looked like they were getting out of that horrible 9-run inning with just the umpire-aided home run but it was not meant to be. Two tough errors and then the doors were blown off the FORD!!! I stayed up till after 1 a.m. to watch thinking maybe, just maybe the Mets could come back. They tried they really did try but came up a little bit short.
Third and my last point is why didn't anyone go out and talk to Oliver Perez after Shaun Green's error? It befuddles me! You would think with all of his so-called mental lapses, him losing his arm angle, someone would have went out to talk to him. No they went to talk to him after they scored I don't know 4 or 5 more runs. I think that was too late. I love the way Oliver has pitched so far this year but I think he needed a go get them rah! rah! rah! pep talk after the second error.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
