Matt ‘The Dark Knight’ Harvey swooped into Atlanta last night, and routed the various henchmen, flunkies, and lackeys that Fredi ‘Joker’ Gonzalez ran out to attempt to bait him into the latest death trap. Some timely assistance from Curtis ‘Robin’ Granderson, however, in the form of a second inning grand slam off Bud ‘Poison Ivy’ Norris, and another 4th inning solo shot was enough to send the whole motley lot off to Arkham Asylum, where no doubt, the incompetent guards will cruelly let us escape tonight to try to win again.
A depressing fact gleaned from the broadcast last night – the Mets have 44 extra-base hits in their last five games, while the local nine only has 27 all season. And when you consider that Granderson, by himself, almost outhomered the Braves on the season last night, you can see why IWOTB are on pace for a crisp 40-122 record.
I’m beginning to think we might be a bad baseball team.
