I just like the graph . . . a lot.

Here is one person's "brief, subjective guide to the baseball playoffs":

The person is Tom Scocca, and you can read more about the graph here.

As for me, my Cubs's season is over (as usual).


  1. I stopped following baseball after the '93 season. The labor (lol) strike came in '94 and I just never cared to watch the game once the strike ended. Which is extremely odd since I was a Phillies fan. It's not like I abandoned a basement dweller. They had just been in the World Series in '93. I don't watch the World Series anymore either. The game is dead to me. Not sure why.

  2. I have some hypotheses:

    1. You don't dig the long ball
    2. Steroids: Canseco, McGwire, Bonds, and others
    3. The wild card
    4. Interleague play
    5. Bud Selig
    6. You don't want to risk having baseball snatched away from you again

    Thank you for the comment. If you're following any other Philly teams, I hope they prosper.
