Glad your team is in the World Series! I didn't want to say anything until they clinched it. There seemed to be a lot of Met fans in Wrigley Field.

Thanks, David. Yes, I saw them, too. I have no idea if they're NYC expats, or well-to-do folks who got tickets and flew in.

You'd never believe these guys were 42-41, before Sandy Alderson made all those moves starting one week before the trade deadline. However, there are a lot of question marks, going into the series. The Mets play some of the worst middle-infield defense in baseball--i.e., Wilmer Flores and Daniel Murphy--Cespedes hurt his shoulder and may not be able to play, or play effectively, and you have to wonder how much the team's young guns--Harvey, deGrom, and Syndegaard--still have left in the tank. On a positive note, if Duda is now heating up, he can be an even bigger offensive weapon than Murphy, in a short series.
