I’ve written before about some of the worst losses of the season. Forget that I ever wrote that. THIS game was the worst loss of the season. Basically, the Mets came back three times in the game to take the lead off Mariano Rivera in the eighth inning. K-Rod came on the get the save and gave up a hit to Derek Jeter and an intentional walk to Mark Teixeira. With two outs, A-Rod hit a pop up to second base and Luis Castillo dropped it. It was right in his glove and he dropped it. Both runners scored to win the game.
It was a stunning loss for the Mets. This makes me wonder if the Mets lead the league in brutal losses. That should be a new statistic.
Castillo is going to be right back in the dog house when he gets back to Citi Field. He’s generally played well this season after being boo’d off the field last season. But he’ll be right back in the dog house now.
