RUF TREATMENT: For Phillies fans, this September's not quite like the last five, but the team's treatment of rookie Darin Ruf upon hitting his first MLB home run was pretty damn special. [Related: Jayson Werth vs. Phillie Phanatic et al.]

To the fans of the Tigers, White Sox, and others, enjoy this last week: those of us on the outside looking in are jealous.


  1. Enjoy? ENJOY? (Freaking White Sox...)

  2. As an Orioles fan, I am unfamiliar with this whole last week playoff chase. I don't know what to do with my hands.

    1. Another O's fan! Yes, it's all terribly confusing. I was at the Cal Ripken/Yankees game, and there was a lot of confusion at the whole "It's September, the stadium is packed, and we're in the pennant chase" thing.

  3. I'm right there with you. I couldn't keep watching last night after they walked in the TYING run. It felt almost Cub-like in its ineptitude.

    Nats fan, ditto. But I sure am enjoying it, when I'm not chewing my fingernails off.

    Nats fan, ditto. I sure am enjoying it, alternating with chewing my nails off. Going to the game on Monday.
