The Astros lead the Phillies in the Wild Card race by 2 1/2 games with five games to go - Phillies have four games left. One game tonight in St. Louis, then four at Minute Maid with the Cubs and their fans. Looking forward to a weekend of pennant fever and scoreboard watching.
Have you checked out the National League West Division race? The San Diego Padres lead and they have a losing record - 78 Ws, 79Ls. Major League Baseball ought to have a rule that says teams with losing records can't go to the playoffs.
