Major league baseball changed its schedule to finish on Wednesday this year and probably as the suits hoped the final day will have all eyes focused on baseball.
I’m rooting for the Rays to get in ahead of the Red Sox so I’d love to see the fighting Showalters in Baltimore pull a stunner against Jon Lester and the Sox.
This Boston collapse has been amazing to follow. The Red Sox started 2-10, then were the best team in baseball for the next several months until the calendar turned to September. Now they look like the bunch that started off 2-10.
I follow the NL much less than the AL but the Braves have also faded down the stretch, while the Cardinals are streaking toward the finish line.
There’s a good chance at least one of these races may need an extension to Thursday.
