I got nothing.

    John Maine lost his no hitter for the Mets in the 8th, but they’re still up 12-0.

    Sam Says:

    Ramirez lost a point on his BA, so he’s at .334

    Two things that I’m glad happened this season:

    1. The Red Sox won their division. That means the Braves 14 striaght will not be jeaporized for a long, long time. The Yanks go back to zero.

    2. Bonds didn’t hit 756 off of a Braves pitcher. He had several chances to do it, too.

    Guess those are the hightlights 0f 07.

    … wow, I guess I should have more faith in Georgia Tech’s defense.

    13-3, oh yes.

    Sam Says:

    Stupid Phillies lost, so it’s back to the NL East being tied. However, Utley went 1-4, so his BA dropped some more.

    Dan Says:

    Padres still up a game, I think they’ll take care of business and lock up the wildcard tomorrow.

    All that momentum and the Phillies lose to the Nationals. Imagine how cursed they’d seem if they lose tomorrow and the Mets win.

    Come on, Phillies. Don’t blow this.

    Georgia was impressive today. LSU, a bit less so, but Tulane played inspired ball for a half.

    Mac do you know when the 2008 Braves schedule will be released. Thanks.

    Crazy upsets… I’m glad football season is in full swing. 6 of top-13 teams go down, and three haven’t even played yet.

    Auburn, though, may need more than a prayer.

    Sam Says:

    Ugh, Holliday hit a double to start off.

    'Rissa Says:

    So, will Andruw play another game in a Braves uniform? He hasn’t been in there for the past two days…

  12. 12
    Sam Says:

    Chipper’s up .33925 to .33871 according to my calculations.

  13. 13
    'Rissa Says:

    Allowing a homer to the opposing pitcher isn’t exactly a great way to go out on a really good stretch by Bennett.

  14. 14
    Sam Says:

    Well, Backe was once a position player, so he can hit a bit. It’s like giving up a homer to Jorge Sosa.

    Big D Says:

    The Padres are up 1 game on the Mets, Phils, and (if they win today) the Rockies. So if the Mets and Phils both win tomorrow, and the Rockies win today and tomorrow, and SD loses tomorrow, there would be a 4-way tie for the wildcard, with two of the teams also tied for the NL East lead. Or SD could just win tomorrow and end all the suspense. But there could still be a tie for the East. Which I guess would result in a one-game playoff. (I’m trying to make this exciting somehow. It’s not really working.)

    Go Chipper and go Phillies

    Sam Says:

    I’m dang confused about what the current averages are right now.

  17. 17
    Sam Says:

    All right, I think I got it, and I’ll calculate it again.

    Holliday’s up .33974 to .33921 right now.

  18. 18
    Sam Says:

    And now it’s all up to Gonzalez to stop Holliday. Just great.

  19. 19
    Sam Says:

    Holliday probably has the average title locked up.

    .3408 to .33921.

  20. 20
    Dan Says:

    Holliday 2-2 now.

    Meanwhile, Cox won’t give Chipper a chance to help himself in the race.

  21. 21
    Sam Says:

    We can blame it on him.

  22. 22
    Sam Says:

    For Chipper to even have a sniff at Holliday at this point, Holliday has to slump BIG time. Even a 2-5 night leaves him at .33971

  23. 23
    Sam Says:

    This will be something that I will willingly blame on Cox if Chipper doesn’t get the NL batting title.

  24. 24
    Sam Says:

    Doug Davis starts tomorrow for the Diamondbacks.

  25. 25
    Adam Says:

    Chipper for leadoff tomorrow, please!

  26. 26
    Sam Says:

    Holliday just popped out. His BA is .3402556

  27. 27
    Dan Says:

    I’m so upset with the Phillies. How could you give the Mets hope again? Let them slither back in this?

    The Padres are fine I am sure. But still, now if the Mets win tomorrow, they are assured a playoff game with the Phillies at the least.

  28. 28
    Adam M Says:

    Colorado is winning big. That means, if tomorrow the Rockies, Phillies, and Mets all win, and the Padres lose, there will be a 4-way tie for the WC. What happens then?

  29. 29
    Brian J. Says:

    First the Mets and Phillies have to play for the NL East title. Then the loser drops into a 3-way playoff for the wild card. They draw straws to see who gets to play one game on the road, two at home, or two on the road.

    Frank Says:

    Mac–you’re not the only one without anything. The Braves offense didn’t have much either. Not that it matters a lick–other than Chipper.

  31. 31
    Dan Says:

    Holliday now 2-4.

  32. 32
    Sam Says:

    .33971 for him. At least One more AB coming if he iasn’t taken out.

    Best day of college football I’ve witnessed in a very long time.
