"A Piniella Return Could Benefit Rodriguez Most"

Seething over this article in the New York Times.

WHY? WHY? WHY? Don't get me wrong -- who doesn't like Lou? But WHY are we catering to this little pissant? It's Joe's fault that he can't do shit in the postseason? Joe is supposed to keep him batting clean up and let the whole team suffer because batting him 8th hurts his precious psyche? The whole team needs a new manager because he can't live up to his gazillion-dollar paycheck? Sorry, that's just bullshit.

I'm upset my team lost. Upset, but not surprised. We're officially the Atlanta Braves now. :-(

The Tigers and The Mets have been the Cinderella stories all year so I'm hoping that will be the end match up. STL and Oakland? Who cares? And it's been 20 years since the 86 series so I will, begrudgingly, say "Let's Go Mets!"

Our household has taken to saying that if the Mets win this year it's because a YANKEE led them to it. So while I can't say "Go Mets!!" exactly, I guess I can root for Willie.

But fuck man, the Yankees really let me down. Boo hoo.

I'm a Detroiter by birth (well, until I was 18 actually!) so I have to say, I'm a bit unpopular here...but I'm kind of excited for the Tigers!

At the very least, it's a good thing happening in a less than thrilling city?

And I respond:

I'm glad they kept Joe. Joe trained Willie. I can root for Willie.

Sol? Dude. 11 games back. :-)

Sandra -- I'm hoping for a Mets/Detroit series. Prior to this year, I had kinda forgotten that Detroit even had a baseball team. My bad.

See, I have no idea what "11 games back" even MEANS.
