Someone is going home tomorrow

OK, maybe not immediately, but it's coming down to the last game of the season for either the Phillies or the Mets to seal the deal.

With a 13-0 win over the Marlins today, New York roared back after hitting rock bottom on one of the worst collapses in Major League history. Call it karma for 1969.

This sets the stage for tomorrow when the Phillies close out their season versus the Nationals and the Mets face Florida. Both games are at home.

One of the strangest occurances at the end of each season is taking mental stock of all the games pissed away over a 162-game season. Simple acts that cause losses over the course of a season, from stupid plays to pitchers blowing out in the middle of the third inning to wearing a Royals jersey come back to haunt fans when teams fall just a few games short of the postseason.

For all of the fans going through that this weekend, my sympathy is with you. Rest assured, though it will all be forgotten next year and we'll be back to letting the losses fade away again.

Just as easily as we let them go this year.
