As if Mets games weren’t shambolic enough, Ben Lindbergh inspects a baseball scene in CBS’ “Elementary” with a few cheapshots at Dusty Baker.
The story of how the Reds recorded those final three outs on Elementary is a mystery that requires an investigator of Holmes’ skill to solve. But since I’m the only investigator available, I’m going to give it a shot. Let’s break this crazy baseball down.
The game is afoot.
That’s it, we’re done. It took four games against two teams over a span of 448 days, but we’ve accounted for everything. And it’s not surprising that the Mets couldn’t score, because their opponent(s) used three pitchers (in five appearances) and 20 defenders to record the final three outs. The complete cast:
P: Michael Stutes, Bronson Arroyo, Matt Maloney
C: Carlos Ruiz, Corky Miller, Devin Mesoraco
1B: Ryan Howard, Joey Votto
2B: Chase Utley, Brandon Phillips
SS: Jimmy Rollins, Orlando Cabrera, Paul Janish
3B: Michael Martinez, Scott Rolen, Todd Frazier
LF: Raul Ibanez, Jonny Gomes
CF: John Mayberry, Drew Stubbs
RF: Domonic Brown, Jay Bruce, Chris Heisey
