Cards win series to decide who loses to the tigers
Being a Mets fan is an act of faith.
Not the stations of the cross like with the Red Sox
Or terminal disappointment with the Cubs.
The Mets lost their two best pitchers and still lost on the last out with the bases loaded.
Ya Gotta Believe is the Mets slogan for a reason. Because you just have to hope they can pull it out, and know that they more often than not won't. With life there is hope and with the Mets, there is always hope.
But having seen the Tigers, it's their year, as the Cards will find out. I don't know what being a Tiger's fan is like, but being in the World Series is as close as a miracle for them as turning water into wine.
Now, I love the Mets, and to see them beat the Tigers would have been fine with me. But some days, you know how a story should end, even if you don't want to end that way. And this story looks like it ends with Detroit seeing wine come from water, because they've already risen from the dead.
