retail news in context, analysis with attitude

In Major League Baseball's National League Divisional Series, the San Francisco Giants defeated the Washington Nationals 3-2, winning the best-of-five series three games to one, and moving on to the National League Championship Series.

In the other NL Divisional Series, the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2, winning their best-of-five series three games to one … and they also move on to the NL Championship Series, where they will play the Giants.
KC's View:
I'm totally conflicted on this one … two of my favorite people in the retail business, Joanie Taylor and Larree Renda, are passionate fans of the Cardinals and Giants, respectively. So I'm just going to sit back and enjoy … and wait for the World Series, during which I will be rooting for the National League team (because they play real baseball in the NL…none of that annoying designated hitter stuff).
