Brewers sweep Cubs at Wrigley.  I put them out to pasture a few weeks ago but the Central is wide open now.  Cards are tied with the Brewers 2 games back.  The three teams play each other a lot over the next couple of weeks.

anyone of those three teams could have ran away with this division had they just played good baseball. All three teams have had small stretches of a few good games of baseball but all in all they all three have pretty much sucked it up. Just when you thought one team was going to pull clear they'd go on a 2-8, 3-10 losing streak while the other two would go 8-2 or 7-3. It's been mind numbing.

21 straight for the Indians. That's more than the Browns have won since the start of the 2012 season.

the Indians will likely fizzle out in the playoffs.

September doesn't matter in October.  Hopefully that's true with the Dodgers.  This upcoming series with Washington is concerning.

Yet another fan injury at a baseball game

http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/20768433/young-fan-new-york-yankees-game-hit-face-foul-ball

Segments from the always superb 'Real Sports from last year (episode 229)

They've had nets along the foul lines in Japan for decades, along with 'excite' seats

Think you can stop a foul ball in a seat between home plate and 3rd base?

And all MLB and the minor leagues do is talk, talk, talk.  I have seen a couple people hurt during my years at games.  When is the commissioner going to wake up?

27 out of their last 28 and now a 13 game road win streak, with Bauer, Carrasco and Kluber set to go this weekend in Seattle.  It's fun being a fan of the Tribe right now.
