    As it works out, Dodgers play at home Sunday and Monday while A's play at home Friday, Saturday and Thursday (if necessary). Games 4 & 5 are always questionable so as usual, "check your local listings."

    To your point (and mine), the teams presently in play make prime time scheduling a tougher decision. Dodgers and Rangers are the two biggest markets, but Red Sox national following could wiggle in there, especially if Tito's Indians win the wild card.

    That's why I think they'll mix 'em up. Too many competing claims for an audience.

    One-game playoffs are fun. Some sports fans just hate fun as a default position.

    I didn't say he used PEDs. I simply pointed out the stats and the patterns. And I don't need evidence to support something I didn't say.

    In any event, everyone can see the support for my post. I didn't present any personal theories about how people do or don't get better. If someone wants to believe that a hitter can be worse than the average Triple A hitter for 8 years then suddenly become very good, then that's fine.

    Agree. It's very charming.

    Also in 1951. Some guy hit a famous homer in Game No. 165, or so I'm told.

    They played a 154-game season and a best-of-11 playoff? Now that's excessive.

    I didn't even think of the Francona factor. That makes the Red Sox almost certainly in prime time every game unless they're playing the Rays (and even then probably).

    The Astros finished the season on a 15-game losing streak, the worst finish since the 1899 Cleveland Spiders lost their last 16 to end up 20-134.

    I'd like to thank the Tigers and the Reds for closing the season like assholes and finishing one win short of hitting the over for their season totals.

    Good luck to the board's Braves fans.

    May the best team move on.
