We personally know four people who stood in the rain at Yankee Stadium for two-plus hours last night, with it not even raining particularly hard, only to learn that there would be no game. That's particularly unpleasant because it was rescheduled for today at 1 p.m., and it's a lot easier to make an 8:40 p.m. game that, you know, a game that's right in the middle of the workday. In other words, don't expect a full house at Yankee Stadium today. (They're obviously going crazy on Craig's List right now.)
Pleasantly, though, we have an unexpected tripleheader today, three Game 2s. But before we get too carried away, we need to look back at the Dodgers-Mets, which was probably the most entertaining game of the playoffs so far. We had several discussions last night as to how that LoDuca/Drew play at home plate would be scored — if you're the type of dork, ahem, who brings a scorebook to games — and how there were about five different huge hits by both teams. That series needs to go five games, just for the fun of it. (We'll be at that game tonight, by the way.)
In other words: This is already extremely fun. To quote MJD yesterday, "The Mets are selling seat cushions with the slogan, 'got postseason?' I think we've sufficiently pounded the 'got?' thing into the ground, haven't we? I don't even know what that ... no, I don't have postseason." Well, we do!
