Reader Mark Kosuth goes back-to-back. “Ola Stitches, Are you sequestered in your basement like the other guy running for President? You’re not in today’s paper. Highly unusual.”��… “My bad Senor! I see your column. I must have hit the bourbon hard at lunch.”

The way things are going I’m sorry you found it. Better keep the sauce handy, Mark. You may need it watching the vice presidential debate.

OK, let’s try again. Game 2, Marlins and Braves and a pair of young pitching studs move to the mound.

Miami’s Pablo Lopez (6-4, 3.61 ERA) will make his first postseason start. Head on with Atlanta this year he made three Jekyll/Hyde starts. Shelled for seven runs over 1 ²/₃ innings but limited the Braves to two runs over the other 11 innings. Atlanta’s Ian Anderson (3-2, ERA 1.95) has a postseason start under his belt. Anderson two-hit the Reds for six innings in the wild-card series, striking out nine.

We will once again take our chances with the underdog Fish and play the Marlins for 10 units.


Miami looked good. Jumped out to a 4-1 lead but the Bravos, via a six run seventh inning, won 9-5.

Travis d’Arnaud’s three-run homer was the biggest blow. Heading to Game 2 at -920 danquayles.
