Boy, that is one miserable looking ballpark.
Anyhoo….today’s free game is between two teams who, in only the most optimistic sense, have an outside chance at grabbing on to the 2nd WC spot in the AL. They won’t of course, but maybe….just maybe….they could.
In earlier baseball news, the Cubs finished up a 7-4 road trip…including taking 2 of 3 in STL and 3 of 4 in PIT. I’m not one to put any stock in things like “statement games” or the like, but there is something to be said for team full of rookies and young guys in everyday roles seeing for themselves that they are capable of winning games in either of these parks, since both STL and PIT had 50-24 records at home coming into play today and Cubs’ road through the playoffs will most likely go through both cities.
In other earlier baseball news, two crappy AL teams played and nobody cared.
