Well, it took 'em 10 tonight but they're still rolling along, 22 now.

Couple days ago I was racking/stacking some Cubbie stuff from over the years, including all 7 score sheets from the Series last year (couple of those are a mess, lol, since I hadn't done that regularly since I was a kid). And I recalled how appropriate, as I learned more about the Indians, that those 2 teams were playing each other. I have a boatload of respect for Terry Francona and that is a very tiny club to be in, managing the team that holds the league record for consecutive wins. Damn good for him & for his team.


I do hate the current Wild Card format ("everybody's a winner" vs. continually climbing meritocracy). It would be criminal for stars to align that allowed someone like the Twins to win just the right 3 games against a team like Cleveland. The WC winner should play the lowest ranked division winner.[/rant]

Eh, better get packin' so I can go up north & have the Smallies make fun of me again.

Big series in Wrigley this weekend as the Cardinals try to make things interesting in the NL Central. Cards been playing much better lately, but has the atrocious pitching, fielding, hitting and managing of most of the year is lurking, ready to crush the hears of Cardinal fans again.

Roger that. The NL Central remains a hair-ball of a dogfight; at this point I'm just glad when there's a game where the Cub starter doesn't give away the game in the first 3 innings. STL can bite if you go to sleep for a f'instant.

The NL Central and AL East are the only places there is a race. Everywhere else the conversation is about wildcard spots. Some good teams are going to be sitting at home just because many of the divisional races were such blowouts.
