Bizarre ending to Subway Series

I must say I am pretty much speechless, I have never seen a game end the way it did tonight. The Yankees really have to thank the mets and kiss their lucky stars as they got a nice gift tonight. The Mets Luis Castillo dropped a pop up by A-rod in the bottom of the ninth that would of ended the game and instead became a 2 run walkoff error. The Yankees had just lost 3 straight to Boston and were about to go down to the Mets when boom a dropped pop up happened. I really don't know what to say because I have never seen anything like that before and I have seen lots of baseball games in my lifetime. Joba Chamberlain got the start and just had no command, he walked 5 and hit 2. Brett Tomko came on in the fifth and wasn't good at all, the first batter he faced was a fly ball that Nick Swisher turned into a double and then the barrage began as Tomko just couldn't get anyone out. Mariano Rivera came in to the 8th inning in a tie game and gave it up again with a walk and a rbi double. Phil Coke was the only guy that came in and gave up nothing in 1 1/3 innings. The offensive star was Mark Teixeira, yes he hit a long homerun but he is remembered for running hard on what should of been the last out and scored the winning run, young guys take notice, that is how you should play the game and why Mark Teixeira is a true pro. Big Tex is truly everything you could want in a ballplayer and you have to love that. Derek Jeter hit a solo homerun and Hideki Matsui hit another homerun on his birthday a 3 run shot. Robinson Cano also hit a homerun. The Yankees will send Andy Pettitte to the hill tomorrow looking for some length out of him, as the bullpen is pretty much shot. Brian Bruney will pitch in Trenton tomorrow and then should be ready to go if everything is ok.
