Couldn't watch this one. Checked GD when I went to bed, saw the score, then saw Nava put out at the bottom of the ninth with Napoli coming up and thought "oh well".

This is a pleasant surprise; can't wait for the Schadenfreude.

Over on SoSH they're really socking it to Farrell for a series of decisions at the bottom of the 7th...

Daily News was pretty blah. Post redid its site and I cannot find (or they are no longer posting) the back pages.

oops - Nava was put out at top of the 9th not the bottom, of course...
