The LoHud Yankees Blog points out that the Yankees and Mets ended up with identical records this year
Both finished 89-73 and even their home-road records are the same. Their runs scored and runs allowed are essentially the same as well. Bottom line is they both suck.

In-depth preview of the Panasonic G1, the first interchangeable lens camera without a mirror box
They're sticking with conventional camera form factor for the launch of this new system, but I'd love to see some radical re-thinking of how an interchangeable lens camera should handle and what it should look like. And if—and this is a big if—they can get the Four Thirds sensor to produce images close to the APS-C sensors in the low-end of the DSLR market, then this is a potential game changer.
