Installed latest version of forum software, had a large number of incompatibilities with older version, unfortunately needs to be a clean reboot.  I did attempt to import users from last iteration.  There seems to be a login bug where you have to click the login link and go to the login page to get in. Not sure why yet.

Scherzer is close to "Pedro in his prime" territory.

Scherzer's is probably my favorite non-Sox pitcher.

Boston the big favorite to win it all.

But in the playoffs, pressure to wrap up a monster season becomes too great for some teams.

Either they win it all, or we find out who this year's version of Grady Little will be.

Vince Velasquez tries out his mound skills in a big games for the Utes tonight. He hits well, too. Which is what they need. Wilson Ramos reports for duty.

heh

persistence.

Off the top of my head, I think the '60 Yankees or '69 Orioles may have been the best pennant winners (edit--I saw) not to win their respective World Series.

I meant to include "I saw"

but 111 wins and getting swept in the Series would have to be head of the Grady Little Division.
