Various and sundry

I hate to say “I told you so” about the Red Sox coming back against the A’s. Actually, I don’t hate it all. I’m glad to say it. It’s lots of fun. When you’re right as infrequently as I am, you’ve got to take pleasure in it.

Zito ran out of gas in the sixth and that was enough to cost the A’s the game.

There’s not much to say about the game tonight except “Go Cubs!” I hope Zambrano pitches well, because he’ll be pitching twice in this series. How he fares could make or break the Cubs’ hopes for a pennant.

I probably won’t be blogging much until Friday as I’ll be out of town covering an insurance agents’ convention, where I expect all the speakers to make lame jokes about the Cubs.
