Man, that was a disappointing GIDP, with runners on first and second, one out, and Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez flailing around like a fish on land after giving up a homerun to Manny Ramirez. GIDP, game over, and the hapless Mets stumble into a win. Andre Ethier ends the game 0-for-5 with 8 total LOB, and the Dodgers lose 5-4.
Look, I know Ethier is our walk-off king this year. But he is on a wicked 3-for-30 streak and has one multi-hit game in his last 10 games. Maybe Joe should give Andre a day off, rather than sitting Loney (especially at the end, when we could have used Loney to PH rather than send up Ethier, as Erin pointed out in our GameThread).
And maybe enough with the yoga thing, which hasn't helped Russell Martin at the plate this year, either.
