Bad news and good news

The bad news is that the Mets are finished for the year. They had major problems with injuries to their starting pitchers at the end of the season, but in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series last night, their backup starter Oliver Perez pitched brilliantly, and with good relief help, the Mets were tied 1-1 with the Cardinals going in the top of the ninth. The Cards' catcher hit a two-run homer to make it 3-1. In the bottom of the ninth, the Mets loaded the bases with two out to bring up Carlos Beltran, who has hit very well against the Cardinals. But Beltran took a called third strike to end the game.

The good news is that Pillage Idiot is back to its usual color scheme.
