    Actually, the Giants clinched a wild-card if they won last night.... but, that sounds right for the magic number to win the division..

    The Reds clinched their division last night..... naturally, my tickets are for tonight.. :(

    I've got first round playoff tickets, already... looking for the next round.. Checking out asking prices for World Series tickets, I'm not sure I could even afford to go.. :surprise:

    well the call was correct but just too late.

    I'm not positive on that being the correct call...(it might be) but, after all, it is a judgement call.. (and, a little late, as noted)

    But, it sure looks like addition of foul-line umpires for the playoffs had a lot to do with it... The left-field line umpire made the call, and he definitely had a perspective that he doesn't have for any regular season game..

    Instead of running out from the infield to make the call (which definitely would give you a feel for how far out that was), he was stationed almost exactly at the same depth as the pop fly. Of course, the shortstop, under the ball and motioning with his arms that he had it.. was the catalyst for the umpire invoking the rule... You almost wonder if the shortstop hearing the umpire make the out call, was startled and thought he was being called off by the outfielder?

    In the end, it was the 8th inning, and Atlanta lost by three runs... they really don't have too much to cry about.

    Too bad about the Giants... ;)

    Jeter - ouch. My nephew is a year older and suffered a similar break this Spring. He's still in a walking boot going on 5+ months and relies on one crutch occasionally.

    My wife had a tib/fib a few years back and she knew immediately that it was more than a turned ankle. She couldn't watch the replays.

    Rooted for Robertson but want the Tigers to win the whole thing.

    I think he signed it when he was the manager. :-)

    Have to go look up the roster again; seems like this one was signed sometime between '66 and '71. So I was more like 15.

    Well, the season has started right. Mets win. Yankees lose. Phillies lose. Who says there is no God?

    Being the Mets, of course they have their closer go to warm up to come in, he never makes it and is now on the DL. He's already had To my John once. They say it's just inflammation but I'll feel way better in two weeks.

    The Mets are still pretty much out of the picture with the fallout from the Bernie Madoff mess, and the other big loans that have crimped their payroll. Oh well, there's always next year. :D

    They've finally gotten to the point where they have enough young players who are good enough not to be embarrassing. We'll see fro there.

    Well, 6 games in we have more questions than answers. Who's got a real shortstop they want to trade?

    Nah. Then you'd miss all the fun. Like Harvey pitching tomorrow. I will go on record as saying deGrom doesn't have to take a back seat to anyone. This is the Jerry Koosman syndrome. Nobosy noticed him because they were busy noticing Seaver.
