    Yup. The Cardinals never led in any game.

    My coworkers discovered the Nats a week ago. Tomorrow will be a trying day.

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    They got Carpenter to the plate as the go-ahead run in the 8th. But my god that first inning.

    did not see THAT coming. guess they used up all their runs in Game 5 vs. Atlanta. Are the Nats' starters really that untouchable, or did St. Louis' offense just die?

    The Yankees are going to bemoan the blown opportunity to win on Sunday. As Tampa showed, the only way you beat Houston is to steal a Verlander/Cole game. The Yankees needed to steal that game on Sunday.

    From ESPN.com: A stat to impress your friends: On May 31, the Tigers and Nationals both had 33 losses. The Tigers finished the season 47-114; the Nationals are going to the World Series.

    This should be inscribed on the lintels of every locker room. A bad start does not doom a team.

    I think it was a little of both. The Cards' bats didn't wake up until last night, and even then, they were shut down when they threatened.

    And it's just simple math. 33 losses is not great, nor is 19-33, but with 162 games there's still a lot left to play. You wouldn't count out a 2-3 NFL team.

    I think it's a bit more analogous to 2-4, but same same.

    Contemplating NL expansion, addition of Montreal and Las Vegas, got me very excited about 4x4 realignment. My dream alignment:

    Sad to see Pittsburgh folded in your future alignment.

    Also, based on the current rumors, I would think LV and Montreal are more relocation areas than expansion cities.

    Oakland to Vegas
    Tampa to Montreal

    Expansion to Raleigh/Carolina
    Expansion to Nashville

    AL:
    East - BAL, BOS, MTL, NYY
    South - TEX, HOU, KC, NSH
    North - DET, TOR, CHW, CLE
    West - LAA, LV, SEA, MIN

    NL:
    East - PIT, PHI, NYM, WSH
    South - ATL, CAR, MIA, CIN
    North - CHC, MIL, STL, CO
    West - LAD, SD, SF, AZ

    Don’t like the Twins out west, but they get squeezed.
    For rivalry purposes I would rather flip the Reds and Rockies.

    I'll buy your moves. I can't see both those expansion sites.

    Here are the current holes:

    1. New York, could support a third team (might even support four) but that gains nothing for MLB and cuts the pie which neither incumbent will permit.
    18. Orlando, with Tampa leaving this is a gaping hole but FL baseball seems to have very bad ROI so let's nix it.
    20. Sacramento, with Oakland leaving this becomes even more attractive. A possibility.
    22. Portland, as a lover of Portland: for hockey, yes, but they have better things to do in those few summer months.
    23. Charlotte, a very strong contender and likely a lock.
    25. Raleigh, knocked out by Charlotte.
    27. Nashville, I don't see what it adds with Charlotte in and the future is West.
    28. Indianapolis, see Nashville.
    30. Salt Lake City, another strong possibility and a great rival to Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Colorado.
    31. San Antonio, another great choice and Texas can certainly support 3 teams.

    I'd personally go with Charlotte and San Antonio, but it will come down to which cities will bend over for MLB the most abjectly.
