BASEBALL: Grumble, Grumble, Congratulations, Grumble, Grumble

If you were wondering, no, I didn't have the heart to watch the Phillies wrap up the pennant last night.

Boy, this has been a fun last five weeks, hasn't it?

Wait, is this a post about baseball? I didn't know you talked about baseball on this website?

I have a very good friend who lives in Philadelphia and is a Phillies fan. He has invited me, a lifelong Mets fan, to join him and support the Phillies in the World Series. His angle is that we should join together and support the NL against the AL.

Now, I have no allegiance to the Rays, although I have some love for the Sox as I went to school in Boston. But I am clearly an NL fan first. Ideally I'd support the NL team. But come on, it's the Phillies. What am I to do? Abandon my friend? Despite his Philadelphia ties, he did root along side me for the NY Giants in Jan/Feb. Do I ignore the World Series? All options seem too painful.

Thanks for the space, Crank. No matter how hard this may for you , we appreciate and heartily accept your begrumbed well wishes.

You're a gentleman and a scholar.

This will be the only opportunity for me to be happy about Kazmir for Zambrano.

You just had to bring that up again, did you?

Ron - of course you root for the Phillies. How can you root for any team that plays with a DH? Bleeping upstart league with their newfangled "rules". Bah, humbug.
