Personal favorites that I wrote
Washington and Seattle refuse to go gently into that good night

by Bob Timmermann

(I will rate this PG-13)

The Angels beat Oakland tonight 5-1, but Seattle beat Minnesota 3-1, so the Mariners faint hopes of winning the AL West are still alive. And the Mariners still will hold on in the wild card race for a couple more days.

In the rather complicated math of the NL East, Washington, with 85 losses, stubbornly refuses to go down peacefully. The Nats will be eliminated from the wild card with another Milwaukee win and from the NL East race, I think, with a loss to the Dodgers Wednesday. But I could be wrong about that. The Marlins might need to win a game too. 

I'll be in the Happiest Place on Earth, Michigan, for the next few days, so updates may be irregular until Sunday. On Saturday I will be seeing the beginning of the Rich Rodriguez Era in Ann Arbor. Look for my brother, his son, and me in the crowd! I'll be in a blue shirt and wearing a Team South Africa cap.

Gentle. Do not go gentle into that good night.
