The Playoffs

The Angels didn't make it. Although, unaccountably the haphazardly stuck together Dodgers did. The frankenteam. (And who, at the time of writing, are leading the Mets 1-0.) This is a post season with lots of personal interest. The Cards have Eckstein at short and Bengie Molina behind the plate. One can almost squint and pretend the Angels made it after all. And the Padres have Mike Piazza catching, he who played so well for the Dodgers before their Babylonian captivity. And the Yankees. Well. It's just as interesting for the anti-fans as for the fans.
