The Mild, Wild Ride.
Que Es Esto?
In actuality, the parity around the NL is the cause of the supposed mediocrity of play. If most teams are damn near equal, well, no team is going to torch everyone, and few teams are going to get blown away. Teams beat each other up, it leads to similiar near-.500 records.
Astros stand 3 games back of San Diego.
Roger Clemens continues to prove that the Astros literally could win every time he starts. Seriously.
Now there's 5 total teams standing betwixt those Bla'stros and sweet, delicious, saucy and sticky postseason action.
Five teams: 1 from the Central, 2 West, and 1 East standing between Fall Joy Rides down I-10, 45 and 610, or hoping the Rockets have a point guard and the Texans...
---Wait, Houston has a football team?-----
SinSinNatty cannot understand Greg Maddux's 'old-school game' and swing confused sticks all night. No longer looking so shiny, the reds might be fading.
Dodgers win 7-3. yay Reds lose!!
Dave Roberts heaps the Padres up on one of his legs and Bruce Bochy on the other for a 4-1 win and the lead in the NLWC as of now! they're monks!
Monkey Friars! Whose dog is splattering poop like a monkey's racehorse!
Philadelphia begs Ryan Howard to truly consider owning more than just this particular city, maybe perhaps the World.
Howard becomes the first hitter to record a 'W' without pitching in a 5-1 win over the sorta a city with a team, Washington (DC).
Florida loses to St. Louis 13-6.
No one likes a St. Louis victory. Let's just nod at the Marlins loss.
Catch some mercury there unwanted Miami Fish Baseball Club.
And the senior PGA SF Giants are somehow stickin' around.
What are they, like, all pumped up?
To play baseball?
Atlanta chops 'em down to size with a 5-3 win.
Andy Pettitte gets the start at home tomorrow night and has done very well in the big box o' juice his last 2 starts: 16 IP, 17 K, 2 BB, 7 H, 3 ER (4-2 W over Pads, 1-0 L to Cubs grrr).
Ride The 'Stache.
From Mike: There was a shutout last night, so I had to add the Mark It Zero picture. Such a great image. Walter almost intimidated BOTH teams into scoring ZERO runs last night. But Huff was man enough to standup to this fictional character to knock in the winning run in the bottom of the 9th. Just in time....
