Rays outfielder Rocco Baldelli, who is from Rhode Island, on beating the Red Sox in the ALCS: “This might sound funny to everyone, but I don’t want to go home and have to see every single person that I know rub it in my face every single day for the rest of my life. And that would happen [if we lost]. I’m 100 percent serious. To beat those guys and not have to listen to everyone where I live, it’s a nice feeling.”
Baldelli will be a free-agent after the World Series and would fit in nicely in the Mets’ outfield.
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.
Like the millions who would watched last night, and like most of the guests to this blog, we watched the Tampa Bay Rays whip the Red Sox to advance to the World Series. … You mean they didn’t?
We watched a historic comeback last night. Down seven, the Red Sox blitzed the Rays to stay alive and send the ALCS back to Tampa down 3-to-2. The Red Sox have Beckett and Lester going the next two games, Saturday and Sunday, so it’s not crazy to be thinking they might pull it off again.
Do you believe that will happen or will the Rays’ magic ride continue?
