I'm not going to analyse, or interpret, or start making predictions about Cy Young's and HOF.

I just simply want to say that last night's ninth inning was by far and away the greatest thing I've ever seen, and I wish to offer my congratulations to Mark Buerhle.

My heart stopped when the ball left the bat, but Wise started me going again. I froze when Alexei fielded and threw to first for the final out. Then began the celebrations.

I'm not ashamed to say that there was a tear in my eye during the celebrations.

Well done, Mark. From now on, a true legend.
