Detroit fell short again. And they have some major decisions to make in their efforts to get another shot next season. Good thing owner Mike Ilitch does't seem to mind dropping a couple hundred million dollars on his team.
The Dodgers seem to be in on every available player on the market. And they seem to have no problem with paying a massive tax penalty for overspending. They might just keep making splashes until they bring home a title.
Winning the NL pennant isn't what it used to be. The Cardinals are probably pretty hungry for another shot, and since their organization is a deterministic supermachine, they'll get that chance next season.
