At this point if we make the postseason, Hamels should be in the rotation and Q should not.

They've pretty much played around .500 ball since the ASB and are only still in first by grace of the Brewers also being mired in mediocrity.

I had to double check to confirm this.

The NL doesn't have a single 70 game winner yet, while the AL has three, along with the Mariners at 69 (nice) and the Red Sox at 85.

Well if there is any hope it's that Chacin doesn't look particularly sharp so the Cubs should have chances to chip away.

clearly the DH hurts the competitive balance of baseball and should be abolished.

(gently caress the DH)

But yeah every AL postseason race has basically been over since June (except now the A's have gotten red hot and made the West interesting) while mass excursions to the Disabled List have gimped the Dodgers and Cubs and kept parity alive and well in the NL.

Likely gonna be another one of those years where whichever 86 win team survives the 7 game NLCS handily wins the world series over some AL Juggernaut that got cold after sitting idle for a week (and cooling off) after coasting through September and sweeping the ALCS.

The West was still slightly interesting before the Mariners imploded at the start of July.

But they Cano back tonight, so hopefully they can still make a run at it.

Called 3rd strike on Zobrist on a ball a few inches off the plate. Zobrist started arguing and then Maddon came out and he tossed him pretty quick.
