Mets Walkoffs Sacrifice Flies Masterpiece

Mets Walkoffs is one of my favorite Mets blogs out there.  It's just so so different and cool.

This week they published "The best sacrifice flies I know."  I mean, who does that?  It's a really neat piece - here is a taste:

Surviving Seaver (August 23, 1981)

The Mets held their own in the 11 games in which Tom Seaver pitched against them, going a respectable 5-6. Seaver pitched really well in almost every one of those games, but sometimes the Mets were able to find a way against the Reds. Case in point was this contest, in which Seaver allowed two runs and four hits through nine innings, but got a no-decision.
The Mets denied Seaver a victory when they tied the score at 2-2, on Mike Jorgensen's sacrifice fly in the eighth inning. After Neil Allen escaped bases-loaded trouble in the Reds eighth inning, the Mets would push across the winning run in the 10th inning on a sacrifice fly by Bob Bailor.

True Metophiles know...The most career sacrifice flies by a Mets pitcher is 6, by Dwight Gooden.

So cool....go read the rest!
