"We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl"

Pink Floyd, "Wish You Were Here"

So the Marlins won the World Series. It's been pointed out that they have had only two winning seasons in their entire (11-year) franchise history, and both of those seasons they won the World Series. And Florida has a payroll less than one-third of the Yankees.

Both pitchers in Game 6 are from the Houston area - Andy Pettite for the Yanks and Josh Beckett for the Marlins. Beckett won the MVP, but Pettite is now a free agent and is rumored to want to return to Texas. Now if the Astros' Drayton McClane will open his wallet we could use another starting pitcher...

(And yes, that's a trifecta of Pink Floyd song lyric post titles....)
