Baseball is poetry. This column is about baseball. We’ll leave it at that.
Five games left, but there’s still some interesting stuff going on.
I am running on fumes, but Shin-Soo Choo is back. At least that’s something.
The Reds, Pirates, and Cardinals can just about punch their tickets, but how well do they stack up for the playoffs?
Look, it’s a long season. I have to get creative to stay interested. Also, there’s a lot of Buehrle-tasticness here, if that’s your thing.
