It had to be said...

With apologies to Collazzi, I have an idea for the next MasterCard commercial.

Getting two teams into the NLCS: $170 million combined
Getting two teams into the ALCS: $170 million combined
The 2005 New York Yankees: $208 million
Attempting to buy a World Series again, and failing again: priceless

There are some things money can't buy. Now we're down to teams that fought with something other than their wallets. Now that we've gotten rid of the ridiculously big spenders (the Yankees, and to a lesser but noticeable extent the Red Sox), we can focus on the purer aspects of the game.

Here's to a Astros-White Sox World Series!
