The Phillies are en route to their second-consecutive World Series, and we can all learn from the qualities that got them there: patience, perseverance, hard work and the will to win.
Let's make marathons more interesting. How about crawling through windmills? We could combine the very best that marathon racing and miniature golf have to offer.
But what's with the umpiring? The umps, in perfect position, blew two straight calls last night against Nick Swisher. I'm not in favor of replay in most cases. I am in favor of getting these umps eyeglasses.
Rubbing salt. StubHub offered Mets playoff tickets yesterday so their fans can "be there as the Mets chase immortality." StubHub called it an "email glitch" and "regrets the error."
You can put to rest the idea that A-Rod's an October bust. He only hit the biggest home run he's ever hit in pinstripes to tie the game in the 11th inning.

I need someone -- anyone -- to explain to me how Jim Tracy has managed the Colorado Rockies to the verge of the MLB playoffs. I just don't get it.
Who benefits the most from the Yankees making the post-season? Their manager Joe Girardi. After failing to make the playoffs last season, another flop would have cost him his job.
Selig is making a mockery of the rule book used for more than a century, in my opinion. The tug of war between the union and ownership is the primary concern for him. The game is getting lost.
