The tight pennant races are getting tighter, and I’m feeling the intensity every night as the Twins and White Sox battle it out for the last Postseason spots in the American League. I’m sure you are, too.

Meanwhile, as the Mets and Brewers try to keep the pace in the National League, the Mets are set on prolonging the life of that charming 44-year-old ballpark in Queens called Shea Stadium that’s going to make way for the new Citi Field next year.

What does it all mean? It means we’ve got less than a week to go until October, and the first five teams that have clinched as I write this are waiting along with the rest of us to see how it’s all going to shake out.

And those teams still have so many unanswered questions, too.

Can the Dodgers keep up the excitement and ride the hot bat of their newest star all the way through October?

Can a healthy Evan Longoria help the Rays continue to prove the doubters wrong?

Do the Red Sox have another magical run in them?

Is it THE year on the North Side?

Or will the team with the best record in baseball live up to its billing?

Vote in the poll and let me know how you think it will all play out. The good news is we won’t have to wait very long to see what happens.



Proud to be the Cubs blog representative for your latest poll on the MLBlogs home page! Looking forward to the postseason starting next week? You and me both! Go Cubs!

Prose and Ivy

This is the year, no doubt about it. If it’s not, the Cubs and their fans are going to have to eat a lot of humble pie!


OG, I think we’ll see the Southsiders make a big push. They might just get hot (if they win the one-off playoff) and surprise a lot of people. Is a Second City Series a possibility? Let’s hope so!
