It's finally starting to hit me just how despondent I'll be once the season ends. It wasn't a particularly good or joyous season, but it's still way better than no season at all.
But before we can dwell on that, there's still some baseball left to attend to.
Ryan Howard still exists. How many homers will he hit tonight? One? Three? 17?
It's Nick Markakis' turn for a day off, and Mallex Smith lines up in right field in his place. Dansby Swanson is hitting sixth, and Daniel Castro is in the lineup for reasons.
