Well that's that for baseball '06.

Wasn't the young pitcher's fault. Both teams played very well, and if Endy Chavez's record-book-making robbery of Rollen's home-run meant that the Mets "deserved" to win in some karmic sense, well, coming back from that setback merits admiration too.

I doubt I'll have anything to say about the World Series. I don't even know if I'll be "for" either side. Sorry but I ain't comin' outta no tree for Tommy LaSorda nor nobody. I don't "live for this" -- I live for the Mets winning, and for lots and lots of things completely outside of baseball.

Just wait til next year!
