This is how The Log ends, with the final sixteen games in Shea Stadium history present and accounted for. My record in them was the same as the Mets’: 8-8. Lifetime record in the 402 regular-season games I wound up attending: 218-184. You’ll note I wrote real small on 9/7, 9/9 and 9/10 to accommodate the determined quest to break 400. If you’re really observant, you’ll notice that on 9/27, I left myself just enough space in case I was going to have to squeeze a 28th game onto the final page, one that would have been played versus Milwaukee on 9/29/08. That became a non-concern shortly after 5:00 PM on 9/28/08.
There’s still some space available on what was to be The Log’s final postseason page. I think I’ll just leave that blank.
