And the Padres squandered yet another July, August, and September. I don't know why San Diego teams are historically awful.

I guess we should be lucky we only had our closer use an inappropriate word in a tweet years ago.

The fact that Felix Hernandez' last start ever for the Mariners is coming up this week and the King of Seattle has never pitched in a single post-season game is astoundingly awful. Seriously, they couldn't string together one halfway decent attempt at a season in his entire tenure. It really feeds my distaste for the entire Mariners organization, from the ownership to the front office and all of the myriad of cellar-dwelling managers they've hired over the years. From holding opening day games in Japan to pissing off Griffey so badly that he retied mid-season, the last two decades of this ball club have been nothing but blunder, after blunder, after blunder. Oh, and let's not forget the time that they had a Native American fan appreciation night and gave out blankets and dropped the price on beer.

Welp, only two games that mean anything today. We have to hope the Cubbies sweep, while we figure out what's wrong with our stupid bullpen beat the Rockies to force yet another game 163.

And of course we limp into the Wild Card game. Thanks, Cubs, for rolling over and playing dead today.

That has to be the WORST way to end a regular season. The only thing I could think of that would be worse would be to balk in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth with two outs.

Oh well, on to Washington where Max Scherzer will probably get 27 strikeouts.

We go from potentially four clinch games on one day to potentially three game fives a day later.

Astros look beatable, and if they're putting it on Greinke to advance to face the Yankees... (shudder)

That first inning at SunTrust... the game was over before all the fans had even taken their seats.

Ten runs in the first inning - an NL playoff Major League Playoffs record.

As a Mariners, and W(ashington)SU fan, I feel so, so, sorry for Braves fans. Did someone get hurt half-way through the series, or something?

Must be.

The ghosts of 1981 are qualmed. Now let's see if the Cardinals can be vanquished by this plucky band of adventurers from the City That Lost Its Collective Mind.

(Cards in five.)

I don't know if the BBWAA has sent out its ballots yet, and, of course, post-season isn't supposed to count, but (expletive) if Gerrit Cole isn't cementing his bid for the Cy Young tonight.

I'm going to have to think Yanks-Stros goes seven, but Houston gets the boost with home field.

Anibal Sanchez comes four outs from no-hitting the Cards in game one of the NLCS.

EDIT: After doing some poking around, I'd have to say that was probably the best game he's put together in a Nats uniform. He's have five one-hitters, three which were broken up late. He had the no-hitter as a Marlin back in 2006. Strange enough, he also had tow two-hitters against the Nats, both when he was in Florida.

The Nationals are one win away from the World Series.

The franchise hasn't been in this position since October of 1981.

The city hasn't been in this position since September of 1933.
