The World Series started with classic hopes. Both teams made destiny arguments with their grit persona that suggested we could have a Series for the ages. We still could, but the Rays have to beat Cole Hamels tonight and take it to Game 7 back in Tampa.
Let’s face it, the odds are long.
The last two games remind us how fragile things could be. Game 3 is the turning point of the Series, but the Phillies scored in the first and ninth innings with the benefit of a wild pitch putting the runner in scoring position.
A lot has happened to the Rays, but mostly their offense has disappeared since the end of Game 5 of the ALCS with Boston.
I’ll be blogging Game 5 with the hope it is compelling enough to where I won’t switch over to watch Peyton Manning. Join me tonight at 8.-JD
Kris Kristofferson sang a song, “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down.” I’m listening to it now. Soft, sad and sweet.
Shredded wheat for breakfast. Heading to the mall to pick up my suit. Moving kind of slow this morning. Long night.
I didn’t think they’d play last night. Great, great game. Last night is why I love baseball. I just wish the people who ran the sport and the televising of it loved it like those who blogged with me last night.
That’s a game everybody should have seen. Too bad much of the country missed it. You have to know there were those who flipped on FOX and flipped it off after seeing a sit-com. Others watched college football. Others just went to sleep. The World Series is your showcase event and people miss it.
I’ll be watching tonight, but before I’ll watch Giants-Steelers.
If there’s anything on your mind before then, here’s your message board. Talk soon. Later, JD.
On Monday evenings at 7, I will host a Mets Chat Room, where we can talk all things Mets.
Let’s see, there’s who among the Mets’ free agents they should retain, and who out there they should throw money at. … Willie Randolph, once rejected by Milwaukee, is a candidate. … Five days after the Series they must decide on Carlos Delgado.
And, of course, we will preview the World Series.
So, there’s a lot to discuss. I hope you’ll join me tonight and every Monday at 7 during the off-season.
