The day begins unsettled.

An unhappy day, full of yesterday's discontent

and unease.

It is the final game of the journey to the West.

One last chance to both leave the leader and

Avoid second place.

The Gods of the Divisional Standings loom,

Poised to return with late-inning slaughter

And gut-wrenching dread.

But perhaps they will linger elsewhere, for the

Stoic one could make certain the team will

Journey home winners instead.
