Reds OF Scott Schelber a big league fool: Phil Mushnick

Phil Mushnick fried Cincinnati's Scott Schelber and the Mets booth big time again Friday.

Wednesday, Reds left fielder Scott Schebler, his team up, 1-0, two-out in the bottom of the first, tried to stylishly one-hand a fly ball at Citi Field. The ball hit his glove, then the ground. The Mets soon took a 2-1 lead.

The next fly hit toward Schebler was in the third. He one-handed it. Stunning. He was eager to risk another error by not using his other hand to secure the ball, another big league cool fool who had learned nothing from the last fly hit to him.

On SNY, it didn’t strike Gary Cohen, Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez as even worth a mention. I know, “The game has changed.” Why play it safe by using both hands? A matter of abandoned fundamental sense, just two innings earlier, was ignored.

And the questions that don’t need asking are those most often asked.
