Let's take a look around the web after the thrilling conclusion of game #163:
- Vicente Padilla and Ronnie Belliard – acquired (separately) by the Dodgers in August – will start ahead of Chad Billingsley and Orlando Hudson in the postseason, writes Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.
- MLB.com's David Ely writes that the Dodgers are in the position they are today in large part because of GM Ned Colletti. The Dodgers agree as they are likely to ink Colletti a new deal soon.
- David Waldstein of the New York Times reports that the Mets will "look into" Roy Halladay if the Blue Jays make him available this winter. However, the article notes that it is unlikely that the Mets have the cash flow to make such a deal or the prospects necessary to entice Toronto.
- Yankees GM Brian Cashman deserves credit for the moves he has made, writes Marc Carig of The Star-Ledger.
