Thoughts on the End of Baseball Season

Major League Baseball saved some greatness for the final day of the season. The Oakland A's edged out the Seattle Mariners for a wild cart spot, Jordan Zimmerman pitched a no hitter for the Washington Nationals.

No team won 100 games or more and no team lost 100 games. 15 teams had winning records.

Derek Jeter

Derek Jeter the Captain for the New York Yankees calls it a career. His .310 career batting average and 3465 hits make a compelling argument for the Hall of Fame. Add being a 14-time All Star, five World Series Championship,  and World Series MVP and they may want to make some room in Cooperstown.

Paul Konerko

Paul Konerko the Captain for the Chicago White Sox calls it a career too! A six time All Star with a .279 career average and 439 home runs. Might not make it to the Hall of Fame but will be remembered along with other White Sox greats.

Post Season

The Pittsburgh Pirates are in the Wild Card. A beautiful stadium, western Pennsylvania in the Fall, and baseball! That is something to enjoy.The Kansas City Royals are in the Wild Card in the American League it has been a long time for both these teams.

The post season where Spring Training dreams live on for ten teams.
