The Wild NL Playoff Race!!!

Who is in, and who is out??? Well, prior to yesterday we only knew the Chicago Cubs were in... now we have two teams in...

John Maine pitched an AMAZING game yesterday, taking a no hitter into the eighth inning while striking out 14 batters... The Mets convincing 13-0 win yesterday over the Florida Marlins, along with a Philadephia Philles loss at the hands of Matt Chico and the Washington Nationals has made the N.L. East race a dead heat coming into today's games... In the N.L. West race, the Arizona Diamondbacks have a one game lead over the San Diego Padres, but have clinched the division title, while the Colorado Rockies lie one game back of the Padres, Mets and Phillies for the wild card.

The fun begins in a few minutes!!! Enjoy the games and for those of you with fantasy teams good luck to you as well!


On a personal note, today was the 8th anniversary of my Dad's passing... Cancer took him from us at only 65. This is always the hardest day of the year for me to get through and it's made a little harder this year thanks to me catching a rare cold. Dad, I know you're looking down us. You may be gone physically, but you're never far out of our thoughts...
