Topics include:

  • The summer of HookSlide and HookSlide Jr. ends by attending Tigers' batting practice.
  • Kurt was WRONG.
  • Is playoff home field advantage as important as some in the media make it out to be?
  • Injuries continue to pile up, the latest being Jose Iglesias.
  • Bruce Rondon's bullpen role.
  • October left field candidates include Andy Dirks, Matt Tuiasosopo, Don Kelly and Jhonny Peralta. Someone is going to be left on the outside looking in.
  • Prince Fielder, Victor Martinez and pinch running.
  • AL MVP and Cy Young were thought to be all but locked up by Miguel Cabrera and Max Scherzer a month ago. Has their September struggles opened the door for other candidates?
  • More unwritten rules breaking! The Dodgers go swimming, Diamondbacks throw a hissy fit (Check out Grant Brisbee's take at SBN's Baseball Nation).
