Take Me Out to the WULAD
I haven’t said a word about my Metties since they swept the New York Paychecks, mainly because I thought their recent run of exciting play and scrappy promise was a pipe dream that would soon be shattered and swept into the dustbin of National League also-rans.

Since that glorious weekend, the boys in blue, orange, grey, and ocassionally black are 7-13, and already looking towards next year, when they will no doubt break my heart with renewed vigor.

If I may quote from the classic baseball film The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, “Search for your friends [playoffs], but do not trust to hope—it has forsaken these lands.”
