Reed gave no indication of this kind of meltdown before today and it wouldn't have been easy for anyone to come in with that torrid storm brewing.
What exactly was the point of taking Colon out anyway once the game got tied? I thought he was supposed to be a length guy? It's almost like they intentionally put Reed into the worst spot possible just so Terry could prove the second-guessers right that Clippard should be the eighth inning guy.
That is interesting. I was wondering why he went with Colon in the first place over Reed. His reason was fine and Colon got the ground ball. Utley ruined everything with that dirty "slide." Feel real bad for Tejada. Just awful. Then you have the bizarre reversal by the umps on a dumb rule interpretation by MLB awarding Utley second base. And then after such a long delay, Collins brings in his "7th inning guy" with the game tied. Reed just didn't have it. Two fat pitches. One on a 0-2 count to A-Gone who had done zilch. And Turner just hits. He's probably the Dodgers toughest hitter.
For the longest time, it looked like the Mets would win and have the chance to finish it. Then the Dodgers got life after that Utley play. A very bizarre inning. Now, it's up to the Mets to turn the page. And for Harvey Dent to pitch a big game which he should. I expect the Mets to be fired up and for Citi Field to be rocking. That should be interesting if Mattingly plays Utley.
