The World Series starts tomorrow night but my personal baseball season ended a little while ago. Despite losing seasons by both the Mets and Indians, this season was a lot of fun.
I saw the brief return of one of my favorite players in Mike Jacobs. The Mets played and won a 20-inning game which ended with Mikey P. getting a save. I saw Josh Thole and Bobby Parnell play significant roles on the Mets showing they can be a big part of the team's future. Mike Nickeas became a major leaguer.
I saw Josh Thole's second career home run in person. I got autographs from Chris Carter, Pedro Feliciano, Hisanori Takahashi, Pat Misch, and Manny Acosta. I saw Dustin Pedroia at dinner when I was in Boston. I went to an absolutely amazing minor league game featuring Mike Nickeas. I fell in love with MiLB.
I saw the Indians play twice in one weekend. I saw Lou Marson get multiple hits. I saw Trevor Crowe make an unreal catch.
Sure, a few more wins would have made the entire season more enjoyable, but there is not much more that could've made this season better. A Joe Smith appearance definitely would've helped.
The greatest part of the season was probably yesterday. After all of my games were over, my season was not. In a season where anything seemed able to happen, anything did.
Let's Go Mets!
Let's Go Indians!
Let's Go Baseball!
