Now before the conspiracy theorists get all bent out of shape, everyone should just chill out. The idea of some orchestrated cabal working behind the scenes to create a Phillies-Yankees World Series is ridiculous. Obviously the umpires will throw the NLCS to the Dodgers. Torre vs. the Yankees? A-Rod and Manny? They can't pass that up.
But the defending champs getting an assist from the Illuminati? Gimme a break. Next you're going to tell me JFK wasn't replaced by a robot in early 1961 and is still living comfortably at a hacienda in Cuba. Let's try to be reasonable, huh?

Barry P. is up later to take you home, but make sure you're here bright and early tomorrow morning. Big update a-comin' that I'm sure you'll have no problem dealing with in a polite and orderly manner. (Don't worry, it's not as bad as you think. Probably. Maybe. It might be worse.) Sweet dreams.
