Mets hitters keep smoking with baseballs. So far during this young season, batsmen have risen to the plate and have been hit on the court on 18 occasions. They average roughly one hit per game, and a few of those beans have been done especially gnarly. On Tuesday night, the Cardinals’ bowlers managed to mark the Mets hitter three times, and Pete Alonso had the worst St.
You might have expected the post-game story to revolve around how the Mets struggled with three more balls, but things took a different turn thanks to some warm comments from Mets starting bowler Chris Bassett. Shifting blame away from the Cardinals memorial staff to MLB continuous future with baseball.
“It’s so annoying to see your teammates getting hit all the time, and if you’re hit with certain hits, that’s what happens, but if you’re hit in the head, the amount of beating we’re getting is unbelievable.” Bassett said. “I got some close calls tonight and I got hit in the face, I don’t want to do that to anyone at all, but MLB has a very big problem with baseballs. They are bad. Everyone in the league knows it. Every pitcher knows it. They are bad.” .
Bassett continued, saying it’s hard to control baseballs well because they all feel the difference from inning to inning, concluding that “MLB doesn’t care about that.”
is that possible? Rather than slip easily into the usual red-ass pose, Bassett, perhaps inadvertently, offered a warm embrace of solidarity with his enemies via the diamond. Let us not deprive ourselves of prosperity by petty accusations, Bassett seems to say. Instead, let us join hands as brothers and attack the structures that have been erected in order to confuse our consciousness and set us against each other! That’s definitely what he was saying!
Unfortunately, this message does not appear to have resonated with the starting bowler Miles Micholas of the Cardinals:
Sweet, poor Miles. Can not you see? The guy has required you to give you personal responsibility above all else, and that’s exactly how he keeps you under his shoes. Don’t give up on him! Go give Max Scherzer a big hug and a big hug during the next game, then throw one of those nasty baseballs that MLB still forces you to play in the sewers. You have nothing to lose but the weak goal of your teammates.
