* Red Lettering = “Lemonaded” – as we called it in the 1950 Pecan Park sandlots, back in the days in which the expression quoted here was our phonetic term for “eliminated”.”

“…. And Down the Stretch They Come . … The O’s and Jays have it almost all to themselves coming down the stretch neck-and-neck …. but the #3 Tigers and #4 Mariners remain in the hunt for a spot …. as the Astros and Yankees bale at the “Wait’ll” @ “Next Year” points on the track. …. O’s seem energized to the goal of knocking the Jays out of the WC #1 spot in the playoffs ….. but let’s wait and see …. this 2016 AL WC race is simply another gallop down that even better known baseball track. ….. The games get decided on the field …. and not on paper.”
