Three Games. "The Cubs are obviously worn out from playing 235 straight road games, but they aren’t the only ones in need of a break. I, as a fan, need a break: I need a day where I know I don’t have to worry about the Cubs driving in the runner from third or getting out of a jam. I need a day where I can let my mind wander to the simpler things in life, like paying rent and taking out the garbage. I need a day with no baseball, but like the Cubs, I’ll soldier on ‘till the season’s over." (The Cub Reporter)

Abstracts from the Abstracts. The latest in a series from Richard Lederer, who's been revisiting Bill James's old Baseball Abstract books. (Rich's Weekend Baseball BEAT)

Picking Your Poison. The Twins will face either the Red Sox or the Yankees in the first round of the playoffs. Aaron Gleeman analyzes the two possible matchups. (The Hardball Times)

103-Win Fever. "So the Cards now have more wins than any Cardinals team in my lifetime. And if you're under 60, they've got more wins than any team in your lifetime too. I'd love to take this time to gloat in the face of all the people who didn't see this coming way back in April, but unfortunately I'd end up gloating at myself, because I sure as hell didn't predict this. I mean, I thought the Cardinals would do better than the pundits thought, but 103 wins? And counting? That's obscene." (Redbird Nation)
