If for no other reason than to reward you're dedication, I hope the Pirates kick the crap out of the Cubbies!!!

Unfortunately MLB.TV shutdown on me, so I am just tracking the box score; however one thing is clear...Correia is pitching lights out. Kudos to him!

You know the game is on late when I am going to bed before it's over and I am on the west coast.

Jeez IA, what time did that one end?

Must have been weird with that empty stadium. I've been to Marlins games at Joe Robbie but even they had about a 1,000 people scattered about.

The Bucs are still in contention and there is no time to make up a game cancelled this late in the season.

They could tell the rain was going to end eventually so they waited. Good thing for us. 8 more please.

Kudos IA - if they finish strong we'll credit you with sparking the turnaround.

Pay, it looks like he stole someone's uniform and was sitting in the dugout...

Wow, I'm running on empty today!

Ok, so the game started at 10:45 CDT. I got to the stadium just before first pitch and there were no scalpers, no ticket windows...nothing. People either sold their tickets hours ago or just left. I held my finger in the air in hopes someone, anyone, would see. I had a "professional" scalper come up to me and offer me a ticket for...get this...$20. Good Lord. Obviously I declined the offer. Once the game started and I still didn't have a ticket this little old lady in a Cubs jersey came up to me and said to follow her. I did, we walked right in and she said "sit anywhere". I did.

Thankfully it was a pretty quick game. We kept teasing the lady working the aisles saying the game was going extra innings. She didn't think that was so funny. It was a great experience. The camaraderie among the fans was fantastic. We knew that everyone in there was going to be hurting the next day.

I need 5:00 to get here so I can get some sleep. I'm not as young as I used to be...

I thought the game had been rained out. i turned on espn to see the mnf final score and saw the bucs won 3-0. Toobad we lost sunday. Well i'm not holding my breathe, but anything can happen. If we can somehow get in the postseason. I mean the 1973 mets went to the world series with only 82 wins. The 1987 twins won the world series with only 85, and the 2006 cardinals won it with only 83 wins. And of course last years new york Giants won the sb with a 9-7 record.
