Yep, it is that time. 142 games down and 20 to go. So what kind of titalating finish can we have this year?
Ummm, dakar's rendition of A Midsummer Night's Dream ...err Nightmare! Twins and Mariners tied with 20 to go. What more drama can the AL handle?
Boston Red Sox has things wrapped up and is going for the gold.
Tampa Bay has a 6 game lead but those pesky Rangers just won't go away. Gunfight at the OK Corral forthcoming.
The Padres have things well in hand and are holding down that #1 seed.
Wild Card Race
At the moment it is the loser of the Northern conflagration with Helena, Las Vegas and Anaheim showing themselves for the final spot or maybe both spots if something drastic comes this way. Outside chances still remain for Texas and Atlanta, miracles do happen.
Cubs remain in first but the Pirates have closed the gap again to 1 game. Even with the severe injury to David Gomez, his young replacement, James Saitou has filled the void and continued their merry way.
Simmy is playing games with the Phillies and Mets and the frustration is evident. The Indians had their chance but seemed to have packed it in for the season.
The Marlins have things well in hand and hold a 6 game lead for the #1 seed. Houston has decided to rest up for the playoffs.
Salem is enjoying their 6th straight 100 win season and 7th straight division crown. Now they want that big ass trophy for their efforts.
NL Wild Card
Houston has one spot all spiffy and neat. Most reliably speaking the loser of either the North or East will claim the other. Arizona remains hopeful with the big outside shot but it is quite slim. Best bet is the loser of the North.
