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!
