School Pride

Just as an FYI, if you're so inclined, you can now list on your LJ User Info page the schools you attended using a new feature offered by LJ.

Nine Left, Behind By Two

That's the Wild Card scenario the Phillies face. I still don't think they're going to make it, but they still have a fighting chance (although, Baseball Prospectus now pegs it at 22.4%). The one thing they finally have in their favor: the schedule, which was their enemy when the month started. Here's what the Phils and Astros have left:


Astros
vs. Team PCT Home Away Total
St. Louis .623 0 2 2
Chicago .490 4 3 7
TOTAL .520 4 5 9

Phillies
vs. Team PCT Home Away Total
Washington .510 0 3 3
New York .493 3 0 3
Cincinnati .467 0 3 3
TOTAL .490 3 6 9


The key here is the St. Louis series. If St. Louis shows up to play, the Phillies can get some much needed help, but if St. Louis decides to phone it in while they prepare for the post-season, I'd say that 22% chance drops to about 5%.

However it unfolds, the Phillies' last series is in DC. It would be nice to have the chance to attend a couple late season games that actually mean something. We'll see.

Wild One In Cincinnati

Holy shit, I can't believe they really fucking won that one. Maybe they really will pull the wild card spot out of their ass. I have to be careful, otherwise I might actually start believing they'll do it.

Eight left, down by one.
