Yeah, Phils knock down the Mets. Amazing actually. Didn't they win 13 out of their last 17 games for something like that ? That needs to be close to a record for the month of September because the last I saw they were somewhere around 7 games out at the beginning of the month. I thought what the Cubs did was pretty amazing over the past 2 months begin 6 games out or so.
And thanks Timmer. I've been to many Brewers games espacially at old County Stadium and I would trade a Cubs cap for a Brewers cap (temporarily) should they have won the division. It was fitting though that the Brewers last gasp was taken away from them Friday night by the Padres. I have been a huge fan of Greg Maddux since his Cub days and I thought it was fitting that his current team made the final blow. That kind of completes the cycle I guess. It would also be fitting if the Padres got into the playoffs too but I don't know what's happening right now. There has been so much going on today that it's been difficult to keep track of it all.
