October starts with a bang

What a way to start October baseball.

Thirteen innings of every-pitch-matters ball in Colorado came down to a defensive replacement's shallow fly ball that scored the former high school quarterback and NL MVP to send the Rockies into the playoffs for the first time since 1995.


Good for them and good for baseball. MLB needs more stories like the Rockies, the Phillies and the Cubs.

Bringing new blood and old-school franchises who have suffered lately into the playoffs is a sure-fire recipe for success.

Now the Cubs, Rockies, Phillies, Diamondbacks, Yankees, Angels, Red Sox and Indians have a tough act to follow after what happened in Denver on Monday night.
