What does a baseball fan care about when there is zero chance his/her team will achieve any success? My quick and dirty list:
Five ribbies and seven runs for Pujols so he can keep the streaks going
A continued collapse by the New York Mets
A division crown for the Milwaukee Brewers
Batting crowns for Placido Polanco and Edgar Renteria, two all-time favorites
No pitching triple crown for Jake the Snake Peavy - one of the least likable characters in baseball
Wainwright finishing the season without any elbow owwies (why not just shelve him now?)
How about it? Am I forgetting anything obvious?
