Baseball's regular season is over, and what an ending it was.
At the beginning of September, the playoff berths in both leagues seemed secure and the final weeks of the season promised little drama. Statistically, the season was all but over, but then the Red Sox and Braves both managed to string together a series of losses that destroyed their wild card lead and opened the door for the Rays and Cardinals to stage the most remarkable September comebacks in the history of the game. It was all wildly improbable.
Baseball is not a game of statistics, it is a game that defies statistics. That's what makes it so much fun.
