The merciful end

There are eight games being played in the National League tonight. Six of them will have direct playoff ramifications. The Pirates and Cardinals are not playing one of those games. Zach Duke and Todd Wellenmeyer are pitching in a vacuum. I mean I guess there's some pride on the line, or something, but it's not like people besides Cardinal fans and Pirate fans (of the diehard variety) are paying attention.
