See It In Their Eyes

During a rare ESPN televised game for the Reds, the RR crew was watching the boys face off against the Mets with the announcing crew of Dan Schulman and Orel Hershiser. Both teams had started the season strongly, though the Reds were only 5 games over .500 while the Mets were 17 games over and already had big lead in the NL East. This caused the "neutral" ESPN announcers to gush over the Mets ad nauseam while giving the Reds very little respect, much to the chagrin of the loyal Red Reporters.

The ultimate in comedy came when Orel Hershiser mentioned that the Mets wanted to win more because you could see it in their eyes. And despite the fact that the Reds held the lead for the majority of the game, he was certain the Mets would pull it out. This led to a great quote from greg456 saying:

Hershiser says he can "see it in the Mets' eyes". That has to count for something. It's in their eyes, damn it. Game over.

The Mets eventually scored 3 runs in the bottom of the 7th, making Hershiser very proud of his prediction.

Luckily, the Reds, despite not having a winning look in their eyes (apparently), did have Brandon Phillips up against Billy Wagner. Down to his last strike, Phillips lined a single to center field, plating two and giving the Reds a 6-5 win over the powerful Mets. All you could see in the Mets eyes at that point was sadness. Hershiser wept.

You can see it in Red Reporter's eyes.
