Pennant Race Gazette–June 18, 2011: A “Gone Fishin’” Edition

Saturday, June 18th, 2011

While the Pennant Race League is deep into its pennant race-based season, MLB has scheduled a two and a half week vacation so they can play some “Interleague” games.   In reality, these games played between “regional” rivals are nothing more than glorified EXHIBITION contests that count in the standings.  Their season without traditional pennant races is so boring they need to give it some umph with artificial sizzle.  For the Pennant Race League schedule, there will be 3 National League series that will impact on the race.  In the meantime I’ll bring you the League standings and scores as I usually do….for as long as I can stomach it!!!
