Let's Play 163

So with the losses to the Brewers yesterday and today, San Diego will have to go to Denver for a one-game playoff to determine which team will win the baseball NL wildcard. As a Padre fan, I am not hopeful, because the Rockies are the hottest team in baseball right now, and have beaten the Padres more this year than lost.

Starting Tomko and not Peavy was somewhat controversial today, but maybe Jake can do it. I think the Rockies will start Josh Fogg. Can the Pads still beat Colorado? Have Khalil Greene hit some humidor-powered homers in the rarified Denver air? We shall see. Either team will fly in to Philly tired, but San Diego will be on a flight out of Milwaukee to Denver tonight, and if they miraculously beat the Rockies, will jump right on another plane for Pennsylvania. Congrats to the Phils, Cubs, and Arizona. Screw the American League.

UPDATE 10/1: ...and after a helluva game, Trevor Hoffman blows ANOTHER save and the Pads lose 9-8 in extra innings. Colorado just wanted it more.

See you next year.
