Terry Collins' wife thinks he should have put Familia in earlier during World Series Game 4
Collins' wife would have used Familia for 6 outs
Coming into the eighth inning of World Series Game 4, the Mets were up, 3-2. Tyler Clippard got the first out by getting Alcides Escobar to ground out. Clippard then walked Ben Zobrist and Lorenzo Cain. After a meeting on the mound, Clippard left and Jeurys Familia came in, but both runners eventually came around to score anyway. All told, in the eighth, the Royals picked up three runs, good for a comeback 5-3 win.
But according to Terry Collins' wife, Debbie, none of this would have happened if Collins had just listened to her. Here's what the Mets skipper told MLB.com's Anthony DiComo:
We blame tacos. They're just too delicious! If Debbie Collins hadn't been thinking about eating one, maybe she could have psychically transmitted her idea to her husband, and then who knows how Game 4 might have ended?
See if tacos also have something to do with World Series Game 5, on FOX tonight. Coverage begins at 8 p.m.
