HBT Daily: In praise of bald men who want the Braves to win

Sep 30, 2010, 1:59 PM EDT

Tiffany and I talk about Brooks Conrad, the NL Cy Young and the AL Rookie of the Year.

    If the Padres and Giants both lose tonight, the Braves clinch a tie for the WC, right? Padres would have 88 and the Giants would have 90 wins. Even if Braves lose 3 to Phillies, they would do no worse than tie either Giants or Padres.

    Nope, the Braves’ “magic number” is 3. This means a Padres loss would move that number down to 2 (a Giants loss would not factor into it) and the magic number has to be at 1 to clinch a tie. A Braves win and a Padres loss on Friday (in addition to a Padres loss tonight) would clinch the wild card for the Braves.

    “Brooks Conrad, the NL Cy Young and the AL Rookie of the Year.”
    I read that, and I was like, ‘Com’on Craig. I know you’re a Braves homer and at all, but I’m pretty sure that Conrad doesn’t even qualify to be a Rookie.”
