- WILL the White Sox continue to build on Buehrle's feat and topple the Tigers? Whoever wins this series gets control of the AL Central.
- CAN Matt Holliday make it down I-95 in time to smack some tater tots at Citizens Bank Park? The fellow first-place Cardinals and Phillies throw down this weekend.
- WHICH NL second place team will establish a better position in the Wild Card race when the Brewers and Braves tussle in Milwaukee?
- OR does the winner of the Rockies-Giants series have the upper hand? Hey, playoff pressure is on and it's not even August yet.
I'd like to wrap up this week with a tidy bow, but I feel like something else is going to happen before we close up shop. Still, either the trade winds have just started blowing or that Matt Holliday deal was the dying bluster of a very boring deadline season. Every single contending team has needs. Every single rebuilding team still has chips to trade. You may not have seen the last of our animated wholphin.
No matter what, baseball will go on this weekend especially when we've got Rocco Baldelli's best buddy Drew "LtB" Fairservice on deck. If you have any requests for his fantastic and didactic Kicking and Screaming feature about Pitch F/x, drop him a line.
Until Monday, same WoW channel.
