Now the weather matches the prospect of the Yankees playing the Phillies in the World Series. Just as the Angels finally beat the Red Sox in the playoffs, the Yankees should finally beat the Angels. I agree with Lisa on Yankees in six.
The Yankee advantage in the late innings is even greater than I realized. I just did a piece on it for The Faster Times, which you can check out here. After the seventh inning, the Yankees have outscored their opponents by over 100 runs!
Meanwhile, the Phillies lead the Dodgers in the seventh as I write this, and could soon be up, 2-0, over the Dodgers. Then again, the Phillies have actually been outscored after the seventh inning this year, so it's not over until it is over.
Somehow, even in a Phillie uniform, I root for Pedro. At least someone once associated with the Mets is doing well these days.
Speaking of the Mets, today marks the 40th anniversary of the Mets winning their first world championship in 1969. Let's hope it is not forty years until the next one!
Saturday will also be ten years since the Robin Ventura grand-slam single game.
Hmm. Too bad SNY is not showing any Mets classics tonight.
