Will they win for goodness sake...
Please accept my apologies for this interpretation to the service but I am not sure I can go through two more days of this. Please can we have giants win tonight...
Just for those thinking what heck are you talking about. We are talking about baseball..
Giants, Padres and Braves are fighting for NL West title and wild card entry and a place in the postseason. All the Giants need to do is win against Padres once and they have got the NL West Title.
If this bad for the fight for postseason entry and Giants end up in it I am not sure I will make it through the next month.
If want to know all the possible combos this article puts is across very well

If the Padres and Braves lose, the Padres would travel to Atlanta for a one-game playoff Monday to determine the Wild Card entry.

Well looks like they where reading here as they did it Few days rest before it all begins again for right to be in the world series.

It makes me laugh that they call it the world series, when its only teams in the North American Continent that stand a chance of getting in, as no other countries professional teams get invited!

IIRC it's to do with originally being sponsored by a newspaper called The (New York) World.

On note of American football interesting that most uk rugby players who have tried American football. Comment how much harder American football is and how they are hit lot harder than in rugby.

Proven fact, they only hit harder because of the padding. Without it permanent damage is caused. They did the testing on ballistics gel dummy's on Mythbusters a few years ago, and shown that without the padding, pound for pound, rugby is by far the tougher sport as it is continuous hits and has next to no padding (Scrum caps and the occasional shoulder pad being the exception). A fan in the USA asked about it, and they got the USA Captain of the Rugby team (who was a former NFL Football player) to do the testing on the dummies. Also the padding absorbs a whole tonne of power.

difference in wording.
Without padding, if they hit as hard as they do, permanent damage IS caused
With padding, permanent damage CAN be caused.
