This is the first year since 1964 that I have not been in the United States for the World Series. This year I left the country in the middle of the series, missing Games Five and Six. Unable to hear or see the final games I settled for BBC radio reports which I heard last Friday afternoon and Sunday morning in Moscow. The reports were sketchy but I did know that Curt Shilling had shut out the Blue Jays 2-0 on Thursday to send the Series back to Toronto.
