Postseason / WS should be the only goal.
And for those who say pennant races are fun, they are when a team is actually playing good baseball as opposed to treading water playing .500 ball down the stretch.
I don't know- the Monday afternoon game was great- very memorable and a unique experience of a weekday afternoon game in September being so meaningful and dramatic. Porbably one for the 4-5 most memorable (excluding "clinch"games) September games in the 40 years I've been a fan.
The reality is we're the 6th best team in a 14 team league- so not a "great"team by any stretch- but overall they've played good fundamental baseball with a great effort- it will suck if they blow it- but I'll take a 2012 "almost made it" over 1978-1981, 1986-1989, 1996-1999, 2007, 2009-2011 any day.
