Where there's a great comeback, there's a BLOWpen lurking around the bend. After putting up a 5 spot in the 8th to take a 4 run lead, the BLOWpen arrives to foul up what would have been an impressive series win against the Brewers and extend a 4 game win streak.
This is brutal. No 8th inning is safe from the clutches of the BLOWpen. Doesn't matter who's on the mound. Tonight it was Beato & Izzy. Tomorrow it will be Parnell. Friday it will be Byrdak or KRod. It's a sick cycle carousel that has been spinning round and round for the last 4 years.
No one expected the Mets to sweep the surging Brewers, but can you at least not throw a fastball over the plate to Prince Fielder? Come on. Runner on second. First base open. You walk Fielder and deal with Corey Hart. You hit Fielder in the head before you throw him a fastball. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.
But that's the BLOWpen for you. Instant disappointment.
