With more than a nod to writer/ex-student/friend Rich Lehman (who uttered that line in a totally different context at lunch yesterday), seems like errors in the field and errors in judgement have kept The Fabulous Spellos Brothers beloved New York Mets and their redheaded, ugly and richer step-brother the New York Yankees out of the post-season faster than you can say Troy Tulowitski. (and please, no e-mail from ugly, redheaded Yankee fans!)
My feelings aside, it should be a very exciting pennant-deciding 10 days. So why not give you a great head start and let you preview some of the 99 SPORTS websites in our next book.
Who's the next Tulowitski? Try Baseball America www.baseballamerica.com
Are you a "new" stats fanatic? Ever look at Baseball Prospectus? www.baseballprospectus.com
More old school? You know, I've never been to Cooperstown? www.baseballhalloffame.org
Enjoy the playoffs. If you don't care for baseball, just remember two names during the playoffs. Bucky Dent and Bill Buckner. If you hear them during the game, just know two boys from NYC will be smiling...
