All The Marbles

One game. Winner take all. For all the marbles. That scenario will take place tonight at Shea Stadium, New York New York. And that's because the New York Mets defeated the St. Louis Cardinals by a score of 4-2 last night at Shea. The rookie John Maine outpitched and outperformed the reigning Cy Young Award winner Chris Carpenter. Indeed, the Cardinals did not score until Billy Wagner came in to pitch the ninth and gave up their two runs.
So, on we go. Game seven. Those two words never fail to produce shivers and shudders down the spine of every Red Sox fan. Every baseball fan too. Everywhere. Shortly after 8pm will be first pitch time. One team will go on to play the Detroit Tigers in the World Series. And the other? Can you say FORE? Loudly.....

A sweet sentence to read. Unless of course your team is playing, in which case it's 'lock all the doors and crack open the vodka'!

Go Mets!

My latest take on why there's so little enthusiasm from the crowds at MLB Postseason, will be found on my blog:

"El Equipo, El Tiempo, Los Mets!"
