And the Orioles keep hanging on. My hat's off to that team for being in contention for the first time in years. They go to Fenway tonight just one game behind the Yanks. That race will be fun to watch.

Congrats, by the way, to the Nationals on their newly-won NL East division title. Well-done!
What is the general attitude on the part of the Houston fans toward the shift to the AL?

The Pirates should try and enjoy this last series with the Astros, Houston has been a great contributor toward their return to competitive status. Pirates are 9-2 against them so far this year.

First batter pops out on 1-1 pitch. Then a ground out, a walk, a ground out. Didn't look that sharp. Too many balls not near the corners.

Looking at that chart, I noticed the swinging strike was on a ball straight down the middle.

The Panda can't reach em there.

Don't look now... Miguel Cabrera may win the first triple crown since '67. He's about 10 points ahead in BA, 7 in RBIs and only 1 behind in HR. This late in the season, it is VERY feasible he could do it.

He could hire Jeff Gillooly and Shawn Eckhardt to take out Hamilton.

The stink of Yankee Magic is back in the air, and they will probably not lose any more games until they clinch.

More Pandoval plate discipline


Fouls off a pitch a foot below the zone and singles on a pitch six inches above the zone.

On the Giants post game show last night the announcers got on the subject of whether Sandoval should bat in front or behind Buster Posey. They were tossing around the usual cliches about someone "protecting" the other hitter when Bill Laskey interjected....."Why would Pablo need protection? He has no strike zone."
