Another memorable weekend for MLB

The Yankees said goodbye to a sports icon as they played their last game in Yankee Stadium, and you could hear the ghost throughout the game. Meanwhile across town, The Braves rallied for four runs in the eighth inning and a 7-6 win Sunday that stalled New York's playoff push. The Mets fell 1½ games behind Philadelphia in the NL East, who beat Florida 5-2. New York's edge in the wild-card race was cut to 1½ games by Milwaukee, which beat Cincinnati 8-1. In the NL West the Dodgers got stung by their incessant nemesis San Francisco losing 2 of 3 and clinging to a 2.5 game lead with six to play. Oh yea, don’t hold your breath but the Cubs are one win away from assuring that the road to the World Series will have to go through Wrigley. In the AL the Rays/Sox and Sox/Twins treaded water over the weekend which suits Tampa and the South Siders just fine, but rest assured there is more to come before the week is over. What was the top story over the weekend, the NY drama of the closing of the house that Ruth built? The Metropolitans failure to secure key wins? The Cubs in position to end a century of futility?
