The Field’s Now Making It’s Turn for the Stretch ….

“….. and the O’s and Jays are neck and neck! …. Tigers breaking for a crack of daylight on the rail …. ‘Stros and M’s in a dead heat rush to hit that same daylight before the big cats eat it! …  Both are still fighting to sneak through near the rail …. one could squeeze through …. but not two! …. Yanks still a length and a half back of five horse tails, but pumping heart and fire as they close like Vader on the pack of leaders! …. And here come the Champion Royals … a half length back of the Bronx gangbusters …. the last hope in the field …. running wide for a stretch run from here to forever! ….”

Stay tuned for a stretch run into the ages.

Consolation Prize: If the Astros do not make the 2016 AL Playoffs, they will have escaped, at least, the possibility of facing the Cubs in the World Series, at the risk of becoming the same league-switch franchise to possibly help both Chicago clubs to exorcise their curse dates of 1917 and 1908 as the extant blockades on either a White Sox or Cubs World Series victory at points of time much nearer the Fall of Eden..
