Holy frijoles, people.  It's not that hard to blow a seven-game lead when you get swept in a three-game series by the team you're seven games ahead of!  I mean, it's not good, but it's certainly doable.

Personally, I love Tommy Glavine's perspective, but then I'm not a Mets fan who has to reconcile "future Hall-of-Famer" with that performance.

I just needed to get that out.

In other news, GO INDIANS!!!!

Being from Philadelphia, I don't expect to spend all that much time in this thread.

Actually I'm rather surprised we're still alive.

In other news, Manny may have hit the walk-off home run, but he still sucks in the field.

I say we put the BoSox and the Yankees in their own division to give the rest of us a chance.

I won 5 bucks off Goat2 when they came back and won it.

That's easy for you to say. You're in Kansas City. *waves bat with excessive pine tar* :drunks:

I'm at the stage where I've got to adopt the Cubs for the sake of my wife. That's kind of like watching Titanic and hoping they miss the iceberg.

This isn't the Martin Luther Bling thread?

Yeesh. That's like growing a uterus and getting cramps just to bond.

Maybe worse.
