There are just nine innings between us and the offseason. It’s like there’s nothing and everything to say all at once. It’s been such a trip this season, with a few highs and lots of lows. But that’s the way the baseball season goes.
And now, I say this for the final time in 2017 (about the Phillies at least): discuss the game in the comments below. And thank you.
