The home stretch of the MLB season is upon us... just make sure to stay out of Joe Girardi's way!  Of course, it wouldn't be September without almost meaningless games between the Yanks and the Sawx (10-27 since August 1st).  But, at least the best stories in baseball (Orioles, Nationals, Reds) are getting some love this week, even if most of it is from alternate MLB Network broadcasts.  But hey, you gotta start somewhere.  The marquee weekend games feature Rays/Yankees and Braves/Nationals.
