I love your post, Lex, which I just read for the first time. Someday, maybe I'll go into my personal baseball history. But for now, how do you all like us setting a franchise record today, for most runs ever scored in a single inning, highlighted by two grand slams. Incredibly, I missed most of the fireworks. I drove home from an afternoon at the office, parked the car and went to the supermarket on the ground floor of the garage to get a few items Lippy had asked me to pick up. I shut off the car radio as Delgado was coming to bat in the top of the sixth, Mets trailing 5-2. By the time I got home, turned on the TV, and figured what channel the game was on today, Beltran had just hit his home run, and the Mets led 11-5. Boy, are they fun to watch.
