Game 7 between the Mets and Cardinals did end up being a classic, won by the Cardinals 3-1. The game featured great starting pitching performances by NLCS MVP Jeff Suppan and (amazingly) Oliver Perez; a catch for the ages by Endy Chavez robbing Scott Rolen of a 2 run homer; a Yadier Molina homer in the 9th to give the Cardinals the lead; and the game ending strikeout of Carlos Beltran by rookie closer Adam Wainwright, who loaded the bases in the 9th before ending the Mets season. Wainwright had a grand total of 3 career saves at the end of the regular season.

You just can't make this stuff up. That's why I love this game.

World Series starts tomorrow night. Tigers in 5.

Greatest catch ever....

...Second biggest heartbreak ever... (I think you can figure out the first.)
