- HOW important is the battle for second place in the NL East between the Braves and Marlins? Jair Jurrjens and Ricky Nolasco are hot hot hot and ready to strike.
- CAN the entire sports media avoid using the words "Johnny", "Vander", and "Meer" when talking about Mark Buehrle's start tonight against the Twins?
- ARE the Mariners really out of contention already? If so, then please send Jarrod Washburn to the Bronx after he shuts out the Jays tonight.
- WILL the surging Nats continue to ruin Milwaukee's playoff chances? The Brew Crew is under .500 after getting blown away by Josh Willingslam last night.
On a personal note, I'd like to say goodbye to one of the greatest magazines ever published. After ten years of faithfully reading "The New Yorker", I have let my subscription lapse because I'm tired of looking at unread issues pile up on my coffee table. So if anyone out there wants to buy any issues between July 1999 and July 2009, lemme know, because I am effete and I am a hoarder.
More baseball tomorrow, including a liveglog. Same WoW channel.
