Mr Met gives fan the finger, employee out as team mascot

Mr. Met seemed happier hours before the game, based on a tweet including a photo of him inviting fans to a meet-and-greet.

Without a furious charge up the leaderboard during the final round of stroke play - stroke play determined the eight teams that would advance to match play - OR wouldn't even be in this position.

Chase Anderson pitched seven shutout innings and the Brewers benefited — temporarily, anyway — when a Milwaukee bat boy bumped into Mets infielder Wilmer Flores on a foul popup Thursday in a 2-1 victory over NY.

The stress is understandable. As usual when it comes to personnel decisions, the Mets are totally screwing this one up, because Mr. Met did nothing wrong. The Mets' beloved mascot flashed an upraised middle finger at a fan during a 7-1 loss to the Brewers the night before, and the employee in the costume will not work for the Mets again. The team has reached the point that even the mascot is done with watching the product on the field.

The kooky play came in the fourth inning with the Milwaukee Brewers ahead 2-0 after they loaded the bases with one out.

"We apologize for the inappropriate action of this employee".

Luckily for the Mets, the play did not come back to haunt them as Sogard hit into a double play. "I told my wife before we got here that I just hoped these guys had an opportunity to shine, because I knew there was an opportunity for these guys to get it done".

Brad Dalke held off Sulman Raza to give Oklahoma its second NCAA golf championship, 3-1-1 over defending champion OR on Wednesday at Rich Harvest Farms.

Sogard worked an eight-pitch walk to lead off the game before Thames homered well beyond the right-center-field fence for his 14th round-tripper but first since May 9.

All the practice sessions with Homer went well inside an empty ballpark.

The Milwaukee Brewers end their MLB baseball series at the New York Mets on Thursday.

Elsewhere on the Mets' website, they say that while Mr. Met long since lost his voice "root, root, rooting for the home team", he "can gesture in 12 different languages". Video on social media showed Mr. Met walking down a tunnel at the ballpark, turning around and giving the middle finger to the fans.

The Associated Press reported that a Mets official said that multiple people don the Mr. Met suit throughout the season, but that this Mr. Met is out of a job.

Dropping to a 23-26 start on Wednesday, the Mets have been plagued with a number of injuries this season.
