And so we come to the end, for me a mix of disappointment in our fate and relief that it will finally be put to bed. I’ll be headed with my family to today’s season finale, which holds an additional significance that I can’t really describe here. It’s going to be a melancholy day for me.

Elsewhere, there’s the excitement of the National League playoff races still undecided:

Phillies at Braves, 10:35 a.m.

Padres at Giants, 1:05 p.m.

Ken Levine has this tribute to Joe Torre. I wish him, Brad Ausmus and all the others who might be spending their final day with the Dodgers the best.
