If there was ever any merit to the concept that clutch hitting doesn’t exist, that “theory” has been completely disproven by these 2012 New York Mets by one lone number. 185.

Dickey Loses Cock Fight As Fowl Yankees Take Series 6-5

Think I could have crammed anymore chicken references into that title? Bottom line was this game was full of disappointments despite an amazin’ comeback by the Mets that was overshadowed by a night to be forgotten by R.A. Dickey, Miguel Batista and the entire ballclub.
