    Wow. Hard to believe that with all their success they never even had a playoff game on the West Coast.

    Two teams headed in opposite directions right now: Angels on a 7-game W streak, Cards have lost 7 of 10, and recently suffered their first series sweep of the season at HOME vs. the Rangers. Meanwhile, the Pirates are rolling, and tonight withstood a 2-run homer in the 9th to beat the Phillies and stay at least 2 up on St. Louis.

    Redbirds have lost their edge in the last two weeks, and have gone from 4 games ahead of PIT to 2 behind.

    Edit: as the Cards score 6 on 4 hits and 4 walks in the 2nd!

    My family went to the Cubs-Angels game when they were out in Anaheim at the beginning of June. They loved the park out there.

    My wife is a huge Cubs fan, so to see my kid come home decked out in a new Pujols Angels jersey was more than a little funny. "Her aunt bought it for her." :bluduh

    Fucking interleague play.

    The whole point of two separate leagues is that teams would never face each other unless they were in the World Series. That's a big deal.

    Now it can happen during any season.
