Playoff open thread

I meant to do this yesterday, but forgot. How 'bout that Jason Bay last night? I feel pretty good about all the time I spent upholding his clutchness a couple of years ago. Today, the Rays play their first playoff game ever (they're already winning!), CC Sabathia tries to keep the Brewers from falling deep into a 2-0 hole, and the Cubs try to avoid throwing most of Chicago into a panic over falling behind 2-0 to the Dodgers. I could be wrong, but I think the list of ex-Pirates in action today is Jason Kendall and Salomon Torres with the Brewers, Aramis Ramirez and Daryle Ward with the Cubs, and Joe Beimel with the Dodgers.
