One more Mets' post for the day: does anyone else realize that the Mets have given up two grand slams to pitchers this season. On June 24, Felix Hernandez hit the first grand slam by an AL pitcher in the past 37 years off Johan Santana. And folks, it was an absolute bomb. Then last night, Jon Niese gave up another monstrous granny to Cubs SP Jason Marquis, which killed the psyche of every Mets fan from Long Island to Rochester and everyplace in between. What a weird season for my Mets. To quote my dad, "only the Mets."
Giving up two grand slams to pitchers in one season...that has to be some sort of record right?
