Why Card

So I'm watching the Dodgers-Padres game, glad to see the ever-annoying Dodgers losing, and falling a game-and-a-half back of the Pads, but also thinking how much more exciting this game might be, all the runners on base and the missed opportunities (until the last two innings), if it meant something.

Sure, the Dodgers have lost first place by losing 3 of 4 to San Diego. But unless Philly stays really hot, both teams are probably playoff bound.

Gee, the wild card sure make the season more exciting, doesn't it?

Uh-oh. Kent and Drew just hit homers in the bottom of the ninth.

Have I prematurely blogged?

And are there drugs for that?

Guess I need a different drug. Back-to-back-to-back-to-back jacks, the last coming from Marlon Anderson, which is sort of like me winning a Pulitzer for blogging. Then the Padres take the lead in the top of the 10th. Then Nomar hits a two-run shot in the bottom of the 10th--on a 3-0 count with no one out and a runner on first--when he should be taking all the way, but instead he realizes Seanez is going to throw a meatball even I could have hit for a Pulitzer, uh, single.

What a game.

But, still, two points:
1) Half the Dodger fans left. They don't deserve to win such games.
2) My original argument still stands--if both teams go to the playoffs, this incredible game means nothing beyond the excitement of one evening.
