Well, I don't care much about Gammons either way... but all this bending over backwards to claim that the combination of "great" and "break their hearts" in the same sentence is really meant to express a positive sentiment is downright bizarre, and that's true no matter where you put a comma. Not saying he's a bad guy, to me he's mostly irrelevant anymore... but you're gonna need a chiropractor from bending over backwards that much.
Plus, it didn't even give them a headache, much less break their hearts. The team mainly shrugged and said, "Oh, well..." WTF is the guy thinking? The only thing the O's have been talking about is winning out. This WC stuff is certainly a nice little milestone along the way, but they never even mention it unless prompted. The div is what they're after.
IMO, the WC is a way bigger deal for the fans and the city than it is for them. It's the city and the fans who have put up with suckitude forever. But for the guys on the team, their goal is not resolved yet. They keep saying that and saying that, I don't know why nobody believes them.
