On his blog, Adam Rubin reports that Jose Reyes’s walk-off homer (scoring 2 runs during the 10th inning!) cemented our sweep against the Japanese All-Star team. The Japanese call it a "sayonara" home run, which I pretty much love. I hope that next year at Shea, I’ll see at least one thrilling Mets walk-off so that I can jump up and yell "Sayonara, baby!"
What’s next for our beloved Jose? He’s a movin’ on up and house-hunting in Long Island. I’ve never been much of a suburban gal myself, but then again, I never had any kind of $23 million contract.
If only great fiction writers were as in demand as great baseball players!
