Game 135: Reds at Pirates

The Pirates continue to round into WS Champion form at just the right time, like the professionals they are.

Looks like the hapless Reds are starting Randall Simon. That says everything you need to know about the Cincinnati team. He'll square off with future WS MVP Vance Worley.

Off day

The World-Series-Bound PBC had the day off today. Perhaps the time wasted on a meaningless split squad scrimmage could have been better used on extra bunting practice. Real games and pennant race starts up again tomorrow.

Game 122: Pirates at Nationals

Morton and Roark in a possible NLCS Championship preview.

Not sure why the league lets Walgreens--a pharmacy--sponsor a team, but there it is. I guess the D.C. fans just yawn when evidence of doping is that obvious. It's a pretty jaded town.

No worries. The Nats can take all the pills they want, and Charlie Morton should still handle them nbd.
