  • Florida 4 Mets 2: Where do you go from here? While 2008 is not as bad as 2007, the fact is the Mets blew a 3-1/2 game lead with 17 to play. For all the talk about the bullpen, or lack thereof, they managed only five runs during the final weekend series with the Marlins.

    Some changes have to be made, but it seems stupid not to officially hire the manager who led them to a 55-38 record down the stretch. Jerry Manuel did a solid job this season. Maybe the Mets will change their mind on Omar’s deal since his original deal lasts through 2009? One thing’s for sure, the fans who stayed for the closing ceremonies after the game deserve a medal.

  • Yankees Red Sox Spilt a Doubleheader: Was this it for Mike Mussina? If so, he went out with his highest ever win total for a season, clinching his 20th in the first game Sunday when the Yankees won 6-2. Mussina has 270 wins for his career and turns 40 this offseason. In the second game, New York extended their season just a little longer, but fell to Boston 4-3 in ten innings.
  • Jets 56 Arizona 35: New York scored 34 points in the third quarter and seemed well on their way to an easy win. But, Arizona made things interesting with 21 points in the third quarter, cutting it to a 13-point game. And that was just the challenge Brett Farve needed as he threw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, six for the game, as he led New York to victory.
  • Detroit 64 Liberty 55: It’s all tied up in the conference finals. The Shock outscored the Liberty 25-9 in the fourth quarter to win the game.
