Today the Mets (5-5, 3rd in NL East) will host the Brewers (3-5, T-5th in NL Central) at 1:10 at Citi Field.
In today’s Daily Scouting Report, I will talk about what it would be like if Jackie Robinson was still alive.
- He would be 90.
- Most likely, Major League Baseball would not have retired his number on every team.
- Most likely, Citi Field doesn’t have a Jackie Robinson Rotunda,
- He would be harassed by the media today.
- African Americans probably wouldn’t play in any sport which would make basketball very different.
- Hispanics might not be allowed in the MLB which would mean that:
- No Jose Reyes
- No Johan Santana
- No Franky Rodriguez
- No Carlos Delgado
- No Oliver Perez (who I still trust)
- No Livan Hernandez
- No Carlos Beltran
- No Gary Sheffield
Today the Mets (3-2, 3rd in NL East) will visit the Marlins (4-1, T-1st in NL East) today at Dolphin Stadium at 1:10 PM.
Today in Cincinnati, the Mets beat the Reds 2-1.
- Daniel Murphy hit a solo homer and then later drove in the 2nd run.
- Ryan Church was 2 for 4 with a stolen base.
- Carlos Delgado was 2 for 4 with a walk.
- As a team the mets left 12 men on base. (not good)
- Johan Santana went 5 2/3 innings giving up 3 hits, 1 run, struck out 7 but walked 4. He was removed after throwing 99 pitches.
- Sean Green relived Johan and threw a perfect 1 1/3 innings.
- J.J. Putz then pitched the 8th. He walked 11 and struck out 1.
- K-Rod (but would like to be called Franky Rodrigez) pitched a perfect 9th, striking out 1 and earning his first save.
