I'm so looking forward to 2006, now that this pesky fantasy run at the 2005 playoffs was finally extinguished last night. I don't blame Shingo Takatsu for this loss--the blame rests on the shoulders of Braden Looper, who, in his words, "stunk it up," and Willie Randolph, who had no business sending Looper out there for the 10th inning after a 33 pitch 9th inning.
I still think this team can finish with 84 wins, which would be great considering all the holes in the lineup and the bullpen. 90% of the idiots calling into WFAN who expected more are morons.
2006 = 94 wins and the wildcard. You heard it here first.
