@mwr505 @Eephus Cleveland and Cincy have their "Battle of Ohio" thing that draws very well in both cities, so MLB's not going to break that up. Unless they decide to have two interleague "rivarly" series at some point, we're not going to see the Tribe that often.

@TomBrenholts I don't even know what to say to that. Division or bust!

Just to counteract the Chicken Littles that comment after a loss, I'll just go ahead and say the Bucs are winning the division. :-)

The Byrd moment was something special. I was thinking before the game that a blowout would be nice. Went exactly as planned.

@justinzeth The lineup has overachieved? They haven't scored runs all year. If they had overachieved, they'd be in a better spot. This team is all about pitching, if that stays strong, they'll have a good shot at the division.

@pensheart @mariolemieux666 Darryl Sutter is the Kings' coach.

With the A's, Angels and Yankees, they're all splitting a market somewhat. Not sure it's really an apples-to-apples comparison in that way. In the Angels and A's cases, they are clearly the No. 2 team in the market, as well.

@Carnegie Chip The Edwin Jackson situation was what I was thinking about, but maybe that's an outlier?

A question I have is this: Did this year show enough promise to the rest of the league that free agents will at least be a little more receptive to coming to Pittsburgh? That would be a significant development if so.
@TanTrax35 Thanks for making a lazy uninformed WV joke while you're at it.

@zeke0629 Throwing games? Wow.
Matt, Hammer's fastball was in the 94-96 range, but he had no idea where it was going. In golf terms he was hooking it and slicing it...missing to both sides pretty badly.

Loved when you could see Sid saying "shoot the f*cking puck" after TK did his usual change-the-angle toe drag on a 3-on-2 late in the 3rd.

And yet, I feel just a bit better because I know I'm not alone in my outrage. I can't believe you were able to put coherent thoughts together after that game.
