Whose father this year is the district attorney? Is this our country?

There’s no moping in October. Say “wait ’til next year,” pick a team to root for, join the fun and, above all, don’t say, “It’s not fair.” Baseball has been giving out rings since 1903 based on head-to-head series. The autumn game is every bit as central to the sport as the summer game. But it sure is different….
There’s a tendency for the sport’s best regular season teams — and their fans (and media) — to moan about insufficient reward for six months of superior work. There’s muttering about flukes. For example, the Royals and Cardinals hit the fewest homers of any teams this season.
But no rule says the ability to play under incredible do-it-now pressure is an inferior standard to do-it-every-day-for-six-months. Nothing says postseason baseball with more off days and the option to use your best pitchers in a much higher percentage of your team’s innings is an inferior form of baseball to a long season in which nondescript starters and no-name relievers might work 700 innings.
To be champions, you have to master both forms of the game….

“The goal each and every season,” MLB spokesman Mike Teevan told me via email, “is to have the most deserving Umpires working Postseason games.”

Missed (understandably, I think).that this has been posted. It also seems to have all sorts of audio issues, including eventually becoming totally unsynced. I don’t think even Rany and Joe talk over each other that much. Anyway.
