"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Would You Believe?

Early in Game 6 Nelson Cruz caught a fly ball for an out. But he stabbed at it and he looked like a clumsy kid not a big leaguer. But nobody ever said that being good means looking good. Last night’s game was unsightly in many ways, fielding errors, poor relief pitching, but it was dramatic and entertaining when it wasn’t infuriating. The Rangers were one strike away from winning their first Whirled Serious, twice. The Cards finally won it on game-ending home run by the man who dropped an easy pop-up a few hours earlier. Pain and joy and Game 7.

One. Last. Game.
Frost this morning. Winter's a'coming, but one last baseball game before the deep sleep. I'm happy. Eh, more satisfied. Happy would be the Yankees playing Game 7. At home.

I'm happy. It's been an exciting Series, and I'm more into it than most non-Yankees years. Kinda rooting for the Rangers. I'm an AL fan, and Napoli's been a good story.
I hope it goes past midnight again.

[2] I'm with you (except for Texas); I've satisfied myself that I'm enough of a baseball fan to have a rooting interest in the outcome, though I would be far more interested if it were the Yanks. Still, you can't deny that this has been kinda fun to follow, even from a distance. I'd be happy for Ron Washington if the Rangers won, but that's about it. I have more reason to like St. Louis despite LaRussa who I don't dislike, but I certainly don't worship like the sports tabloids do. Either way, I won't be mad at the outcome. When a World Series goes a full seven, it's reason enough to take notice.

Here's the best recap I've seen of the game:
