…The Mets turned one of the most unlikely double plays you’ll ever see.
Definitely an early game. I was in one of the dining halls eating lunch after class.I remember watching that at a college buddy’s apartment. If I recall it was a early game. 1pm start or something like that. Definitely some day drinking involved.
He must've stopped to chat with Reyes for like 5 seconds.How did Kent not score on that ? I know Kent was a slow runner and Green played it perfectly off the wall. The booth said Kent got a late start but you can see him taking a sizable lead off 2nd. I'm guessing he got a bad read off the bat and held up ?
Not sure why Thorne said that Green didn't get a good read? From the camera angle that just looked like a line drive off the wall that was uncatchable (and then played perfectly off the wall). But perhaps that was just the camera playing tricks and it was a catchable ball off the bat and Kent was going back to tag up and that's why he got the late start? Why Drew was sent home is beyond me though. Are there any more camera angles of this play?How did Kent not score on that ? I know Kent was a slow runner and Green played it perfectly off the wall.

‘06 forever cemented my hatred for the St. Louis Cardinals. To this day I know in my heart we would have won the WS over the Tigers....was in Palm Springs for a business meeting; just got to hotel, turned on TV, and this play happened not five minutes later.
Damn, that Mets team was so good...
This was my first and only playoff game. I made an emergency alteration to my Pedro shirt with some electrical tape like this:Definitely an early game. I was in one of the dining halls eating lunch after class.
It was basically an emergency start from Maine. Delgado hit a bomb to center.
Cable went out for me as the ball left his bat. My parents were in Brooklyn and called me to see if I was watching. I was so angry and happy at the same time.
It looked like a catch from almost any angle, even TV. I didn't realize it was out until the players ran on the field . Usually see the ball bounce back up, pretty often after a homer to CF. It was like the ball landed so gently over the fence and stood there .. some type of glitch
I was in LF and you couldn't tell if Finley came down with it. It's funny watching it now because it was a second or two before you realize he didn't catch it. But in the moment it felt like an eternity.
