The cookie has crumbled and there's really nothing we can do about it. The game tonight was really a lot of fun; the crowd was great, Shea was alive and well. It didn't end the way we all had it drawn up, and that hurts. A lot. The Mets finished with the best record in the National League and they outlasted 28 other teams to get to this point, but when Carlos Beltran took that called third strike it didn't feel like the Mets were the best anything.
As this loss sinks in and we all have some time to reflect on all of the great things the Mets accomplished this season you can count on lots of good stuff here at AA in the coming days, weeks and months as we count down to Spring Training 2007. I'd like to thank everyone who came here and contributed over the course of this long season. It has been a lot of fun sharing this team with you. And I'd like to thank the Mets, for giving us so much to cheer about over the past seven months, and for making New York a National League town again. Just like it oughta be.
