"He's in labor here." --Keith on Jorge Sosa in the bottom of the the third.
Oh yeah, Sosa was laboring (and screwing up my fantasy team since I needed a pitcher to replace my 4 pitchers went on the DL the past 10 days). It wasn't pretty. I got so disgusted with this 5th loss in 7th games to the f-ing Braves that I forgot to take notes. Only two Keith comments stuck in my brain:
--At one point Ron Darling brought up the story of Albert Belle taking out Fernando Vina at second base, Keith recalled when he tried to do that in 1988 to a second baseman and ended up hurting his leg. When he returned, Keith said, "I lost four steps of my blazing speed."
--And just like me, Keith didn't want to focus on the task at hand once we reached the top of the 5th inning. Gary read the AFLAC trivia question, which asked who holds the Mets single season strikeout record...
Keith: "Well, it used to be Barry Bonds."
Gary: "Um, it's the Mets record."
Keith: "Oh, I'm not paying attention."
Dammit, they better win these next two at Turner field.
