David Aardsma’s bed goes missing from New York apartment after blowing save for Mets

Filling in for injured closer Bobby Parnell on Friday night, David Aardsma ran into a little ninth inning trouble against the red hot Kansas City Royals and couldn't protect the New York Mets 2-1 lead. Fortunately for Aardsma, it wouldn't cost the Mets the victory as two innings later Eric Young Jr. played hero with his first career walk-off home run, but it may have proven costly on a personal level.

So much for being excited about moving into that new apartment on Thursday.

Of course it's entirely possible that Aardsma was the victim of a random robbery, but it's pretty convenient that only his bed went missing. At this point it's everybody's best guess that an angry Mets fan (perhaps a new neighbor) somehow gained access to Aardsma's living space and decided to play a trick on him. That's a pretty mean trick, too. A good night's sleep with a day game following an extra-inning night game is pretty important.

Well, at least he was able to maintain his sense of humor in the face of extreme inconvenience. But that was before he tried to sleep. I wonder what type of mood he's in at the ballpark on Saturday.

If it was me, it wouldn't be a good one.

Oh, and by the way, the next time Aardsma pitches he'll notice something else is missing. Third baseman David Wright was placed on the 15-day DL Saturday with a hamstring injury. That's basically like losing your bed and your security blanket in one miserable night.
