The Orioles had an interesting weekend with Toronto. In the doubleheader Saturday the Blue Jays scored 11 in the first 7 inning game to win 11-10. In the nightcap the Blue Jays trailed 1-0 going into the 7th and final inning and scored 11 runs to win 11-2. Today they played a 9 inning game and the Blue Jays scored 22 runs (10 in the 3rd) enroute to a 22-7 win. 44 runs in 3 games for Toronto.

But they have a sweep of a series Sad

I looked it up and it was believe it or not- Houston in a three game series. They did beat Boston early in April 3 games but the fourth was rained out and Boston won the make up.
Houston should have to forfeit a draft pick

Giants first team to clinch a playoff spot.

Remember when so many thought it was a forgone conclusion the NL West would have both wild cards? Yet look who's still hanging around-Cincinnati and The Loo, along with the Phils and Mets, as the Padres have really faltered. Padres are 25-36 for July, August, and September going 11-14, 11-15, and so far 3-7 in those months.

Rest of Sept. for the Padres is brutal: 3 more on the road against the Giants, then 3 on the road in The Loo; They come home to face the Giants again for 3 games, then the Braves for 3 and a completion of a suspended game; then back out on the road for 3 in LA followed by 3 in San Fran.

I believe heads will roll in San Diego after the money they spent

I doubt it.  They're as likely to add even more.

More or less redundant.  They'll be rated in the Off-season Thread. 

You could call it The List of Guys We Aren't Getting.

More than doubling their payroll with a 107 million dollar jump, and you don't think someone will pay the price for missing the playoffs, instead be rewarded with an even bigger budget?

I answered it once.  I'll answer it a second time.

I doubt it.

What that means is- Yes, it it is possible.  No, I don't think that it will happen.

First, t's only a lot of money to people who don't have it.....or, have it, but never spend it.

If the owner felt that making post-season play was a certainty, then he was sadly mistaken.

As I told Dave, it's as likely that the Padres owner adds as it is that he terminates someone.  He could do both.  Nothing will surprise me.

Well, that isn't what you said, but wow what an explanation Perry Mason!

I didn't write that "I doubt it"?  I guess it takes a third time for ***some***.

Giants who are 95-50, have won 9 straight. Dodgers are 2.5 behind at 93-53

Arizona and Baltimore join each other in the 100 loss club last night.  Both 47-100.  They are in championship form for the first pick. An exciting race this will be.

The Pirates and Rangers tussle for the 3rd and 4th spots. The Rangers have a one game lead on the Bucs, as the Pirates have gone 7-3 in their last 10 games and 13-13 in their last 26 to move out of the third spot into 4th.
