No discipline in Sunday debacle
By Adam Rubin
Neither the Mets nor plate umpire Phil Cuzzi will face any repercussions stemming from Sunday's ninth-inning fiasco in San Francisco, a Major League Baseball source said.
The Mets -- in particular catcher Henry Blanco -- were outspoken in criticizing Cuzzi for botched calls and a flare-up with Francisco Rodriguez in the ninth inning. Blanco even called for Cuzzi to be punished.
The Mets would have lost the game had San Francisco's Travis Ishikawa correctly been ruled safe in the ninth inning. Instead, the Mets won in the 10th on Ike Davis' RBI.
