What??? I was there for you all the way, up until the bartenders turned on me and cursed my dollar a beer tips.

I was there on Friday and it seems like the beer prices increased throughout the season.

Prices are high enough, I gave the gal two extra bucks for two beers and she got pissy with me, quite a way to finish the season.

A buck tip for a beer is plenty.

If they want two dollars per, they should price them at $8. :?

Yep. What's going to happen when the inevitable increase to $10 takes place?

nah, this is more like 2013 - a stacked team that should have been been in the playoffs and missed out due a combination of underperforming players, weak bench, bad managing, overconfidence, and injuries.

2005 is a better comparison because of the hopes both teams had at the All-Star break.  It also depends how much over .500 we end up this year.

2005 was more "pinch me I can't believe this is happening" at the All Star break, while this year was more "Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen"
