The Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays are tied for the American League Wild Card lead while the St. Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves are in the exact same situation in the National League. If that wasn’t enough to keep you interested, we still have home field advantage up for grabs in both leagues.Here at Meadhouse, we're watching the Brewers, who are fighting for the home field advantage. We're also rooting for Ryan Braun to win the NL batting championship, and this news just came in:
Jose Reyes heard the boos when he was lifted for a pinch runner. Mets fans wanted to see more....Will Braun leave the game if he gets ahead?
After a bunt single in the first inning Wednesday, he was finished. His day and year done, Reyes headed home to watch Milwaukee's Ryan Braun try to overtake him for the NL batting championship.
"It was kind of tough," Reyes said. "I want to stay in the game. They have to understand, too, what's going on. They have to feel happy about it if I win the battling title."
UPDATE: "The greatest day of baseball, in my time" says the announcer, referring to 32 years. So many wild games, with so much riding on it.
