    How in the world did he hit that ball out... that's freakish!

    I'm still stunned about that home run. That was not a swing that was supposed to produce a bomb.

    NY announcers griping and complaining about all these "cheap" HR's. Then they gripe that the walls are so close that the ball bouncing off the base of the wall would have rolled further and it would have been a triple.

    If it wasn't in HD, I'd go back to FSN.

    how it wat pathetic how a ball like that was hit out. they are blaming the park for it saying it wouldn't have gone out anywhere else except wrigley. once again they have a short memory on 2 homeruns they hit last night.

    you and me both on the HD! it is always interesting to hear the other teams view. the pregame show was a regular met lovefest with everyone else just being awful except them.
