The Mets would like to forget the seventh inning of last night’s game

The seventh inning of last night’s Cubs-Mets game started with the Cubs holding a 2-0 lead and Jon Rauch on the mound for the Mets. Then the defense went south.

David Wright and Lucas Duda each committed three-base errors two plays apart, which led to two Cubs runs. Then, right after the Duda error, Ronny Cedendo committed another error to allow another run in. Four plays, seven bases worth of errors, two runs. Then two more runs scored via more conventional means in the inning.

Just one of those nights everyone wants to forget.

    Wright’s expression sums it up nicely.

    Been sort of rough watching Wright’s defensive skills suffer even as his bat has come back. I suspect that he’s always been an average fielder and that I never really paid attention, but of late it’s hard to ignore.

    At least Tejada is back, and he seems to be a pretty good SS.

      While he’s made a few key errors, Wright has actually been better defensively this year than in the past several years, according to both my eyes, and the defensive metrics. Everything from UZR to dWAR says he’s doing a better job this year overall. It’s just that the errors stand out like a sore thumb.

    Zip-a-dee-doo-da, and the Cubs were off to the Camptown Races oh de doo-da day! I am sure that Old Gator remembers the 2 songs I just mentioned that always remind me of Duda..

    Seems like there was bad baseball all over the place last night.

    As a Cubs fan, may I please be allowed to forget the past three months?
