Thank god for baseball's wild card races.
After the weekend, only one of the six divisions has a race closer than five games for first place.
The NL Central is the lone competitive battle. The Red Sox are up five games on the Yankees. The Indians have a five-game margin in the AL Central.
So wild card races will provide excitement down the home stretch. College football, the NFL and the U. S. Open tennis tournament are around the corner, baby!
