161 down, 1 to go!

What a great baseball season! It amazes me that after 161 games, the playoff picture still hasn't been figured out.. and if things fall just the right way, there could be, count them, two play-in games for the final spots. Talk about the playoffs starting a little early. I'm rooting for the Braves and Sox.

Luckily the Phillies won't have to worry about making the fall season. A win tonight over the Braves will give them their most successful season in franchise history with a record of 102-62 and the best record in the MLB for the year. The team was on track to break all kinds of records before an eight game slide the last couple of weeks. The starting pitchers finished with an ERA under 3.0 for the season and are all looking good for the playoffs. Can't wait!

On side note, be sure to catch ESPN's 30 for 30 movie, Catching Hell. It puts you in the mood for playoff baseball and gives ya some perspective on just how crazy sports fans are.
