Beck Is Dead

Rod Beck, the man who lived in a van down by the river*, has died. He was a big smoker/drinker-type, so that might have done him in. No word on whether it was something like that or a suicide or what. "Maybe it was a snake bite," offers my girlfriend, who was a fan of Beck.

More talk just now in the pre-game of how Francona's happy to be done with interleague play. Seems like everybody in the game or who once played the game agrees with me on this one, as does almost any real human I talk to. But "the fans love it!" (Read: "We want to have Mets-Yankees games every year so we're gonna just go ahead and do that. Sorry.")

*Actually a motor home down by the stadium.
