We All Needed The Day Off
YESTERDAY IN POSTSEASON PLAY:
With the NLCS having concluded the previous day, we all had the opportunity to enjoy a momentary respite from the MLB postseason. It is one that is already guaranteed to be remembered for a long time as this marks the resurgence of many of the previously abysmal teams in baseball including the Astros, Cubs, Mets, Blue Jays, and a few others who are continuing to build upon their recent resurgences. As I have stated before, this looks to be the first trip of many for a number of these teams but again its baseball so the landscape could be completely different next year after many of the players still in action hit free agency. Only time will tell but for now it is time to rest.
POSTSEASON PREDICTIONS: Read my post from October 6th to see how many I have gotten wrong!

Nothing to report!
The Phillies finally put an end to the season finishing in last place in the NL East with a record of 63-99. Given the departures, aging stars, injuries, and bipolar performances, this has ended up being one of the worst seasons in franchise history! However, there are some former Phillies still making headlines in the playoffs this year.
