Five Things I'm Wondering

1. Will the Giants vote Melky Cabrera a full playoff share?

2. When will the Dodgers shut down Kemp and Kershaw? Everybody's thinking it. Feelin' Kinda Blue is flat-out asking it. Who (besides @Dodgers) thinks risking their long-term health in this charade of a playoff chase is worth it?

3. Will we get a WSH-BAL World Series? Right before a Presidential election? It could be a DC kind of fall.

4. Whither Russell Martin in 2013? Martin, who turned down a three-year, $20-million deal from the Yankees, might have to take another one-year deal to reestablish his value.

5. Which team will be more embarrassed at not making the playoffs: the Dodgers or Angels? Don't worry, guys, there's plenty of humiliation to go around!

There could also be a World Series game played on October 31 with two teams wearing Halloween colors, but let's hope not.

1. Yes
2. Kershaw will be shut down after his next start. Kemp will "gut" it out to the end.
3. I like that idea better than a Yankmee-Gnats World Series.
4. Russell who?
5. Has to be the Angels. Arte spent huge bucks at the beginning of the year and failed to make the playoffs. If we don't make it next year, then we will be more embarassed.

What else is he going to say?

Earvin Magic Johnson ‏@MagicJohnson

Tough loss last night for my @Dodgers but there is still a chance to make the playoffs so we must keep fighting.

Does Magic know something that we don't?
