A few thoughts on a Monday...
  • The less said about yesterday's Patriots debacle the better. In fact, I'm not talking about it anymore.
  • If I were a Mets fan, I would be stressed out every time someone came in from the bullpen. The absence of Billy Wagner has but a major dent in the Mets division championship plans. Yesterday, Scott Schoeneweis gave up a three run lead in the 8th to the Braves, which enabled the Phillies to pick up a game in the division and the Brewers to get a game closer in the wild card chase. The NL wild card may come down to whether the Mets or Braves are less inept over the last week.
  • Assuming the Sox can win tonight, it will be the fifth time in six years that Boston has made the post-season. Consider that from 1919 to the coming of the wild card in 1995, the Red Sox only played in the postseason six times (1946, 1967, 1975, 1986, 1988, 1990) and you can appreciate what an amazing feat that is.
