Blog Photo - Game On! Live Sports Thread 9/15/13As you can see, most sports have essentially packed it in rather than compete with the NFL. However, there's still plenty here for those that need a break from football. NASCAR starts its Chase for the Sprint Cup today, weather permitting. Presumably they haven't added anyone else to the Chase in the overnight hours. Playoffs also continue, such as they are, in golf, while the race to the playoffs continues in baseball. As you'll see in today's MLB recap, separation is finally starting to happen, and it's desperation time for a few teams (*cough* Orioles *cough*).

Here is today’s schedule. All times are eastern and are pm unless otherwise indicated. Personal picks are in bold.

Is Kyle going to sweep Chicago? I hope Matt ruins his weekend.

Bad luck for Earnhardt Jr. Looks like he blew an engine after his last pit stop.

Could one of the NASCAR fans tell me why the Air Titan isn't at Chicagoland right now?

Got to go to the Pirates/Cubs game with a group of co-workers today and their families.  Justin Morneau couldn't have picked a better time for his first RBI in a Pirates uniform!  PNC Park feels like a playoff atmosphere, and the Bucs are finding ways to win.  Magic number is down to 6!

Thanks to fantasy, I let out a big whoop when the Royals tied the game in the 8th, meaning Scherzer couldn't get the win. Then the Tigers took the lead in the bottom half of the inning and Benoit got the save, which helps me more.

Unfortunately for the Royals, that essentially takes them out of the playoff hunt.
