--- End quote ---

it did not have the electricity of game 6.  it was comparable to games 1-5.

The last few innings of game 7 were kind of boring.  I am not upset with the outcome (didn't really care either way).  it was like Texas gave up in the late innings.

The last visiting team to win a Game 7 remains the 79 Pirates.

That is the only way to connect the Pirate organization to anything World Series-related.

Speaking of base-ball, looks like the Astros are going to the AL after all, so you'll have two 15-team leagues. To balance them out and prevent still more interleague, I propose adding a 16th team to each league. I've received some interesting comments on other potential additions but I'm sticking by these anyway.

AL East: Red Sox, Yankees, Orioles, Blue Jays
AL North: Twins, Tigers, White Sox, Indians
AL South: Rays, Astros, Rangers, Flyers - adding a Carolina team to a large, untapped market. Raleigh or Charlotte, doesn't matter.
AL West: Mariners, A's, Angels, Royals (someone has to do it)

NL East: Mets, Phillies, Nationals, Grays - mostly for historical sentiment, I'll admit, but I can't think of a better baseball city anyway.
NL North: Pirates, Reds, Brewers, Cubs
NL South: Braves, Marlins, Cardinals, Diamondbacks
NL West: Rockies, Giants, Dodgers, Padres

You could also contract by two- drop the Rays and A's (perhaps move the A's to Colorado or Phoenix and drop the Rockies/D-Backs, just to preserve the A's name and history) and move Milwaukee back to the AL

Otherwise, I'd love to see expansion to Charlotte/Brooklyn/Montreal (Vive les Expos! Montreal is a good baseball town- bad ownership just ran the franchise into the ground)
