My friends have been posting that they already got their Dodger postseason tickets. Me? I have been checking my email, nagging my aunt at home to see if they have arrived. I got the email yesterday that they had been shipped and this morning, finally my aunt called me that she received them! Finally!! She also told me “you know that little Kershaw pillow you have?” “Well, tell Kershaw that in addition to going to the pool (my only mention of the poolgate), he went into the washing machine so he is very clean”
Here is the Divisional and Wild Card Standings
MLB Divisional Standings as of 9/25/13 at 2: p.m. Pacific Time.
MLB Wild Card Standings as of 9/25/13
Cleveland has one more game with the White Sox tonight and four with the Twins starting Thursday. Texas has one more game with the Astros tonight and four game with the Angels starting Thursday. If the Astros are not in the American League, Texas would not be in the Wild Card running. Rangers won 16 of the 18 games they played with the Astros. I hope the Cleveland Indians take the other Wild Card.

*** TBS will air three of the four Division Series games on Friday, October 4, and up to three games on Monday, October 7. MLB Network will air one Division Series game on both of those dates. TBS will air 18 of the 20 Division Series games.
On the Dodger flag radio station in English, we can listen to Vin Scully for the first and last three innings. Rick Monday and Charlie Steiner for the middle innings. On the Dodger flag radio station in Spanish we can listen to the same format of Jaime Jarrin for the first three innings, Pepe Yniguez for innings 4,5, 6 and Jaime back for the 7, 8 &9. Fernando Valenzuela doing the analyst part. I am not sure if this follows the same format he has of starting in the 2nd inning to the 7th innings.
Sunday I was planning on going to the San Clemente Seafest but after seeing that there was going to be an MLB Postseason quadruple header on TV, I decided to stay home. I am glad I did stay home to watch most of the four game series. Yeah, I vegetated but in between I did get some cooking done.. I’ll take the train ride to San Clemente another weekend.
Today there is another quadruple header! I am at work but I will work with my headphones on while I listen to some of the local announcers on MLB At Bat. I tend to switch between the home and away team announcers. I have found them a little too homers. That is something that you don’t find with Vin Scully, Jaime Jarrin and Pepe Yniguez.
When I find myself on the road and my MLB At Bat fails me at the stadium, I turn to my radio and listen to the local announcers. In addition to enjoying the game, I like to listen to the local commercials to see who their local sponsors are. I found the milk commercials at Minnesota …wholesome :-). By the way, avocados from Mexico commercials in the MLB Postseason? Cool! It did make me want some avocado . Talking about avocados, last weekend was the Avocado festival in Carpinteria, CA.
this reminds me of the avocado trees back home in Honduras. It also reminded me of Duke Snider who had an avocado farm in Fallbrook, CA.
The quadruple header for today:
St Louis at WAS 10 AM PT (1 PM ET) on MLBNetwork. Carpenter against Edwin Jackson.
SF at CIN 1 PM PT (4 PM ET) on TBS Barry Zito against Mike Leake
BAL at NY 4:30 PM PT (7:30 PM ET) on TBS on ESPN radio Miguel Gonzalez against Kuroda-san.
DET at OAK 6:30 PM PT (9:30 PM ET) on TNT Mike Scherzer against AJ Griffin
Ex-Dodgers in the postseason: Kuroda-san, Jonathan Broxton, Guilleromo Mota, Edwin Jackson, Derek Lowe, Jayson Werth, Russell Martin, Jim Thome, Jim Johnson, Xavier Paul, Dioner Navarro and David Ross (Braves)

p.s. Jaime Jarrin twitted this “commendable drive of Clayton Kershaw to intensify the collection of funds to help kids in Zambia. He will have a golf tournament on November 12th in Los Angeles.
I like the quotes once you publish your post here at the MLB Blogs. This is from today:
