Neel's Latest, on the Wonde...

Neel's Latest, on the Wonderful A's-Angels Series:

The gamecided by one run. Get that, now: nine of their last 13. It's all just been ridiculously exciting and entertaining, the kind of stuff players, fans and cities thrill to, the kind of stuff that is valuable and important in and of itself. [...]

This is good baseball, man. Tim Salmon, Troy Glaus, Eric Chavez, Miguel Tejada -- these guys are getting big, crowd-goes-wild-players-storm-the-field hits. What's not to like? Get on board.

Hi Matt:

Bruce Jenkins is echoing this theme at the SF Chronicle:

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/chronicle/archive/2002/09/18/SP80124.DTL


Here's an excerpt:

"It's time for a change, though. We'll get our taste of the Jason Giambi Yankees soon enough, and, with any luck, the A's or Angels will take them down.

Then we can get back to the most stirring baseball we've seen in the league all season. Amazingly, it's no longer the Yankees against Boston or Seattle. It's that Hegenberger Road-vs.-Disneyland thing we've been dismissing all these years."

Hey don't forget my Dodgers! I was at the Game on Monday vs. SF and it was the best game I've ever seen in person. There was a grand-slam, a Bonds HR, a game-saving, home-run-robbing catch at the wall, 2 other homers, and a game ending strike out by Gagne. 7-6 Dodgers.

It's been a great series as well. California is basball central right now!
