    Rany Jazayerli

    It's been 22 years since Pittsburgh hosted a winner-take-all baseball game. The most striking thing about that 1991 Game 7 against Atlanta wasn't the result; it was the audience, or lack thereof, there to witness it. Paid attendance was 11,000 fans s...

  16. The MLB Weekend Top 10: Into the Wild-Card Wilderness

    Shane Ryan

    It's the last weekend of the regular season, which means it's also the last MLB Weekend Top 10. That would be sad, in its way, if I weren't just drowning in Coca-Cola right now. I don't have any emotions except alert, and so I can't write a proper eu...
