METS-MARLINS ANGELS IN THE OUTFIELD by Tom Brennan
The guardian angels that have allowed 43 year old Bartolo Colon to pitch like an All Star switched sides last night. Turning him into a normal 43 year old last night.a
Last night, in honor of Jose Fernandez, the guardians from above switched sides, with those angels directing the ball off of very low power Dee Gordon's bat leading off the game into the second deck. Supernatural.
Right there, the angels made it clear this would be a night of Marlins celebration. Bart got clobbered, the relief pitchers got the game over quickly, and Met bats, producers of buckets of runs in the recent Phillies series, were quieted.
St Louis got clobbered by the weak Cincy Reds, so the Wild Card situation actually improved (one less game for the Cards to deal themselves in).
Time for the angels to switch back to Casey's Metsies....Stengel spoke to the angels after the game, so all should be good from here on out, folks.
And let's go Mets.
