What a motley crew. Some really cute kids, some falling apart old greats and one kooky superstar. Oh, and an amazing manager. And now they are in the playoffs. Of course, the last time this happened, the Mets walloped them in the first round, causing immense hilarity in the Met-fan section of my family. By this time next week, the Dodgers might not be looking so good. But the anticipation is wonderful.
