Can an Extra Wild Card Spot Entice a Team to Push Forward

I’m going to jump on my own bandwagon here.  Last season while contributing for HardballChat.com, I wrote an article about the second wild card spot which was created for each league.

David Wright, El Dramático And Clutch Offense Spark Another Rally

When you live on the West Coast, sometimes you have to listen to the other team’s broadcast. It can be excruciating. When your team starts winning, especially in clutch fashion, there’s nothing better. That’s what happened to me while listening to the Braves announcers last night.

Darkness In Corona: The Night The Lights Went Out At Shea

It had been a sweltering hot summer in NY, so hot that my dad and I had taken to sitting out in the backyard to listen to the games.  It was July 13, 1977, and the Mets were playing the Cubs. They were losing 2-1 in the bottom of the sixth in spite of  an 11-strikeout effort by Jerry […]
