Just like yesterday, here are some random things that I witnessed or experienced during the day as I throw up an Air Claw for the cool shit, and score an error for the not so cool shit.
Claw- David Wright comes through with more late inning RBIs in the form of a two run jack in the seventh inning.
Error- The Mets drop a series to the effing Fish. A series they should have won and had plenty of opportunities to do so. They now find themselves below .500…..again.
Claw- Manny Acosta pitches two scoreless innings and was in line for the win.
Error- Bobby Parnell’s slider.
Claw- for Mother Nature, raining out my son’s baseball tournament shortly after I discovered it was an hour and a half behind schedule and we likely would have been playing until midnight.
Error- for me, because for some unknown reason I can never spell the word eighth correctly and always have to rely on the automatic spell check to spell it properly. Ironically, I spelled it right in that sentence after at least two months of always failing to do so.
Claw- goes out to John for sharing his Claws and Errors today, some of which made the list. Thanks for contributing!
Error- goes out to the very same John for suggesting we give a Claw for Emilio Bonifacio and his 23 game hitting streak. A 23 game hitting streak is impressive, but I just couldn’t raise my arm up to claw a Marlin.
Claw- for nine-year old Jayden making that sweet catch. Most nine-year old outfielders don’t even see that ball as they are too busy picking dandelions.
Error- for the guy operating the pitching machine. Sweet baseball pants Coach!
