1. The Phillies will not face the Red Sox in the World Series and we'll have to wait another year for a rematch of the 1915 Fall Classic.
2. If the Yankees advance to the ALCS, I don't have to have Fox and MLB remind me why the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry is classic and Beyond Baseball.
3. If the Twins win tonight (hopefully), the start time for Monday's NLDS Game 4 between the Phils and Rockies will be 5pm at the earliest. If the Yankees win tonight, the game will start at 7pm. Had the Red Sox lost and if the Twins win tonight, Monday's NLDS Game 4 would have been played at 2pm, and I would have had to finagle my way out of yet another afternoon of work.
