And he…drops the ball!

This is a bit dated, but still worth passing along, especially since I spent the past weekend at Citi Field watching the second installment of the 2009 Subway Series.

The video’s quality isn’t great, as the original video was taken down by MLB. Basically, it shows the play in which Luis Castillo drops the A-Rod popup to lose the game for the Mets. There are four different replays, and each time the audio comes from a different broadcast crew (Yankees TV and radio, Mets TV and radio). The music behind the calls is a little loud, but you’ll get the idea:

I thought all of the calls were great, but the despair that comes from the Mets’ broadcasts, particular the radio call (per WFAN) is hard to beat. Almost makes you feel sorry for the Mets.
