That's what separates the two frontrunning teams in the NL West, according to

Yet the "Games Behind" column indicates they're both in first place.


Look at that travesty.

It burns. It chafes.

Is the Purplian fanbase content with that? Or are they chomping at the bit for retribution?

I can only assume that tickets for said theoretical comeuppance - scheduled for the 16th and 17th of this month - are flying out the door into the hands of the Purple Row passionate. If you don't have them already you should bust your buns to get them, because the Hated Ones will not stain the carpet of Coors Field again until the fantastic foursome of September 15th through 18th.

In the first two weeks there was a great measure of both success and failure regarding these two protagonists.

Now, due to a multitude of influences, we haz a tighter race.

From the "life imitates art" category:  I'd like to pluck a nugget from the archived works of Oingo Boingo,                                                         who were led by the genius of Danny Elfman:

Isn't this fun?

Isn't this what life's all about?

Isn't this a dream come true?

Isn't this a nightmare too?

In the process of the painstaking research involved in bringing you that scheduling news I noticed the All - Star balloting on the righthand column of the MLB team page.

Now, admittedly it is early and my reading glasses are not their most pristine - but while he's certainly still a handsome fellow isn't the Toddfather a bit old to be considered "1ST BABE"?



Enjoy the season, Row. And do not assume or predict the outcome in a negative manner.

What fun is that?

Eat. Drink. Be Merry. But the above FanPost does not necessarily reflect the attitudes, opinions, or views of Purple Row's staff (unless, of course, it's written by the staff [and even then, it still might not]).
