Man you jinxed him. Dude got absolutely lit up today

Hell of a comeback by the Sox tonight. Shane Victorino has been an absolute stud. Not only at the plate, but defensively he has been playing gold glove caliber defense and is a great clubhouse guy.

Reds 2.0 back from the division lead after last night. Joey Votto snapped out of his slump in a big way.

The NL central is just fascinating right now. Must watch theater with 3 really good teams. Stuff like this is why baseball is my favorite sport. Nothing beats the stretch run.

On another note, since I live in the area and find myself paying attention to the Rays, they are dying at the vine. Seemed like a playoff spot was a lock at one point, but now they are holding on for dear life.

Indians still not out of the wildcard race. at this point, i think they are just holding on to make the crushing disappointment that much worse.

Reds are on fire! Won 6 out of their last 7 against some very good teams, and some of the best pitchers in the game. Just 1.5 back of STL, who swept Pitt. Reds face the Cubs this year and are 13-3 against them this year, Cards go to Milwaukee, and the Pirates have a tough best in a trip to Texas.

The Pirates clinched their first winning season after being stuck on 81 wins for awhile. They got to Darvish late in a pitching duel between Cole/Darvish. Does it seem weird to anyone that Darvish seems to come up on the losing end as often as he does despite pitching great. The Rangers are a solid offensive ball club but they seem to give him no run support, especially as of late.

However, from what I've seen from Darvish seems like he does have some command issues with his fastball and is too reliant on his breaking pitches. Reading some of the links posted by Ranger fans bloggers are interesting as well on why he is having some issues getting his team more Ws when he is on the mound vs. advance stat metric arguments. Seems like an interesting debate considering how the Cy Young award is going to generate a similar discussion if it has not already.

I think Trout will catch Cabrera in the batting race. Miggy is hurting right now.

Losing back to back games to the Cubs when you are in a fight to win the division so you can avoid the WC game, is simply inexcusable.

He looks like a poorly done wax imitation. That can't be real.

Uehara has been a beast off the bullpen since his time with Orioles, but somehow he usually ended up as the 8th inning guy.
