There are still baseball games to be played. 217

The Divisions between us 95

Today’s the first (and possibly only) day with all four Division Series playing. TB at Hou 1100, StL at Atl 1330, Minn at NYY 1600, DC at LA 1830. Yes, it is hard to move on. "Kraut will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no ...

Wild cardstock dreams 122

Hotter than Hell 224
