Happy Birdland Eve, friends! How will you and your loved ones be celebrating our nation's greatest holiday tomorrow? I'm flying to Boston!

Camden Depot: Predicted Wins and Playoff Probability: Week 12
Holding steady at 76-80.

Double Standard For Brian Matusz? - PressBox

He is 9-for-19 over the last four games and has eight multi-hit games during his batting streak."
