Personal favorites that I wrote
The Unsinkable Mariners and Nats?

Seattle showed the tenacity of a cockroach by refusing to be eliminated from the playoffs today.

The Mariners beat Cleveland 6-4 today with Roy Corcoran retiring Ryan Garko on a game-ending 1-6-4-3 DP with the bases loaded.

Meanwhile in Boston, the Red Sox kept the Ms alive with a 4-2 loss to the White Sox. The Red Sox had the tying runs at second and third with two outs, but Dustin Pedroia flied out.

And in DC, the Nats, one loss away from elimination, trailed Atlanta 4-3 in the 8th. But Aaron Boone hit a 3-run homer to spark a come back and the Nats won 8-4.

But, according to the math scribbled on the back of a receipt for some grossly overpriced coffee at the Denver Airport, the Nats will be dead if the Phillies hold on to their lead against the Cubs.

But I will soon be entering the cone of silence that is a commercial airplane.

The S.S. Mariners and S.S. Nationals survive to sail another day. But they will almost certainly go down to Davey Jones' Locker over the next day or two. Yarrrr!

The Nationals with their backs to the walls win six straight. Amazing.

You, and overpriced coffee. Nothing good will come of it.
