Took a Little Longer This Year

Arizona Diamondbacks/Los Angeles Dodgers Recap Saturday which shows Eric Byrnes getting four hits and the Dodgers dropping thier 12th in 20 games. Even if they limped into the playoffs now, they're low-hanging fruit.

Not that the Giants did any better this season and seem to have quit a bit early in this last series against the Brewers.

Seven games left, they're a half out in the wild card and a game and a half out in the NL West (which shows how weak the west is and has been for a while). But its nice to know that the Dodgers will be watching again soon too.

So will the Red Sox who flamed out a week or two ago.

One of the best stories from this season is the Phillie's Ryan Howard who's brushing up against 60 homers in his first season in the game. That's pretty cool.

And Frank Thomas, of course. Putting up monster numbers in September is always a way to endear yourself to your fans. And being on a team that's 27 games over 500 doesn't hurt either.

And its Sunday morning football time now so that's all good.
