On a non-Mariners note, how wacky is the NL Wild Card race right now? Houston, Philadelphia, Florida, St. Louis and Montreal are all tied for the lead, then you’ve got Arizona one game back and Chicago and LA only 1.5 games back. That’s 8 teams within 1.5 games of the top spot. As I’m fond of saying, “The Wild Card makes for exciting baseball.” And as Derek is fond of responding, “And meaningless division races.”
