METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 17, 2012 GAME:Shickhaus Franks
August 28, 2012
Until this game, the last time I wanted to smash my TV into pieces because of a Mets loss was the infamous Luis Castillo dropped pop fly vs the Yankees. Rookie sensation Jordany Valdespin hits a 3-run homer at a difficult place to hit one (Nats Park) then the great law firm of Parnell, Byrdak and Beato practically give the game away as "Brat" Harper hits a triple!!! As I refuse to call Larry Jones "Chipper"; I refuse to call Harper "Bryce" because he has potential to be the next Willie Mays or the next Angelica Pickles from the "RUGRATS" cartoon. A tough loss indeed and if the 2012 Mets don't see serious October baseball, this will be one of these games why!!!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
