retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The National League playoff picture has been pretty much finalized, as the St. Louis Cardinals clinched the NL Central divisional championship and the Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the NL west divisional championship. The Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates have clinched wild card playoff berths, which means...

The Pirates and Cubs will play a one-game playoff game, and the winner of that game will play the Cardinals in the divisional series, while the Dodgers and Mets will play in the other divisional series.

In the American League, the Toronto Blue Jays have clinched the AL East championship, while the Kansas City Royals have clinched the AL Central ... though the AL West and the wild card games still are to be determined with just five days left in the regular season.

Let's go, Mets!
