I've lived in some Major League baseball markets, including Phillies, but never have gone to any.

My only time at a pro game was years ago when I took my young girls to a Indianapolis minor league game at their new ball park. Minor leagues bust their butts to entertain the crowd in inning breaks. The girls like that, but the game ... not so much. We didn't make it back as their school activity and social life calendars got busier.

And dear friend:

I'm so sorry that the fires in Seaside Heights/Seaside Park burned out all those folks, and the new boardwalk.

Yeah, this is out-of-date because of REAL-LIFE but this is when the NL Cent. Div. Pittsburgh Pirates team was assured of a regular season winning record; first since '92.

With Pirates clinching playoff spot, 3 teams from this division qualify.

Is there no crying in baseball -- when long careers for same team end?

Wednesday night: at last home game in Denver, everyone including Red Sox gives standing ovation at his first at-bat. And he hits home run:

injured while starting QB @ Univ. Tennessee, Peyton Manning gets the job; the rest is history

<quoted text>You know, it's just not good enough having the best doubles hitter (Machado), best HR hitter (Crush Davis), 2 ea 100 rbi guys (Davis and Adam Jones), best AL saves guy (Jim Johnson) and, soon to be set, new record for best team fielding % of all time.
<shaking head> It makes no sense. A total and complete absence of hitting the last 40 days of the season. Unreal.
**it happens (after All-Star game). See: Cinn. Reds ( never mind the Pirates) in recent years.

It ain't over 'til it's over. Season extended to 163 games tonight for Rays and Rangers tie-break game to win right to one-game playoff against the Indians of Cleveland (!) on Wednesday, 10-2-13 to advance.

Pirates host Reds for 1 game Tuesday night to advance on the NL side.

'offbeat' way to end season for Marlins: wild pitch and 'walk-off' no-hitter!

http://news.yahoo.com/marlins-alvarez-throws-...
MIAMI (AP) Henderson Alvarez pitched a no-hitter with a most bizarre ending, celebrating in the on-deck circle when the Miami Marlins scored on a two-out wild pitch in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat the AL Central champion Detroit Tigers 1-0 Sunday.

I'm liking the Pirates. It's good to see them enjoying baseball again after 20 years.

Yeah ... and to evoke memories of Stargell, Clemente, Sanguillen, Parker and their team mates.

some managers at season's end:

Cubs Sveum: fired but 'not a scapegoat'

Rangers Washington: may not survive front office 'politics'

Yankees Girardi: likely considering options

Indians Terry Francona: on the season's-end streak that put them in wild-card game -- "we stayed away from the chicken and beer"

Let's hope they win. Today it doesn't look too good for them in game 1.

xLCS -- pitching, pitching, pitching.(except for Tigers late-inning meltdown against Red Sox Sunday night).

"No-no " by combined Tigers' pitchers Saturday into the 9th inning.

Cardinals lead in games 2-1 with "Wonka" pitching, but get shut out in the 3rd game.

Cardinals are batting as a team through game 3 ....135 !!!
