In the ninth inning last night, the Mets scored their final two runs on a double by David Wright to deep right-center. After the play, the Mets broadcasters, Keith Hernandez and Gary Cohen ripped into BJ Upton for what they perceived as a lack of hustle.
Here’s the play…
But, this play is just the Mets TV crew looking for an excuse to trash Upton.
First of all, we’re not sure how a NL TV crew can say “this has been his entire career” when they may see him play 5-6 times all year.
In this play, you can see Upton, who started in left-center start off running hard and ease up. But that was because Usain Bolt was not catching that ball. But hey, maybe Keith Hernandez would prefer Upton crash into the wall unnecessarily. At least then he would be “hustling” enough to be on Hernandez’ lawn.
