    I do too, but... 3 of the 4 teams involved seem to be less-than-good right now. In the NL they should just give the Phillies a 1st round bye and let the D-Backs and Brewers play to determine who will face the Phils in the NLCS. Seems that neither the Braves or Cards are very good. The Red Sox are real bad right now. If this were ski-jumping, then the D-Rays would have wrapped it up a week and a half ago.

    Something smells rotten in the WC. At least 75% of it does.

In fact, their last two losses have been excruciating defeats snatched from the jaws of victory.
    Yeah and for those who didn't watch it, in the top of the 10th Molina doubled to the wall with one out. However the next hitter hit one back to the pitcher and Molina has a brain cramp and tries to go to 3rd. He's easily thrown out for the 2nd out at 3rd base leaving a runner at 1st with 2 out. The runner at 1st was then thrown out trying to steal 2nd. Way to run yourself out of an inning...

    Yeah, I pumped my fist and almost threw out my elbow while watching that highlight on Sportscenter this morning.

    Philly just lost 8 straight games, so I wouldn't give them much leeway either.

    Good point. I am referring to "the smell of blood" and not acting on it. Philly had smelled it and more-or-less ate it at that point.

    I agree, it's good for baseball that these races have become close. However, it's not good for baseball if Tampa Bay ends up winning, which is what looks like will happen. A few years away from a World Series appearance, they are about to finish off an epic comeback and make the playoffs and they draw 18,000 to a game last night, against the Yankees no less. Someone remind me why Tampa has a professional baseball team?

    Or just contract them and the A's and spread the players around. Have a reverse draft. Reds get a high pick!

    Phillies lead the Braves 7-0 in the 7th inning.

    Astros lead the Cardinals 5-0 after three innings.

    This statement should warrant a permanent ban...

    I'd hate to see the Cards get in but the way the Braves are playing I'd almost rather see them get in than this pathetic Atlanta team.

    Re: Braves/Cards/Giants

    I have never seen a situation where four teams are tied and two playoff spots are up for grabs on the last day of the season. This is absolutely crazy.

    By the way, check out this quote from Chipper Jones after they loss tonight:

    "Its like were living out a bad dream"

    If that is the mindset for even the most experienced Braves player, it looks like bad news for them tomorrow.
