Golf ends fall season with another loss

Soccer falls in pivitol match v. Bisons

Column: Let the post-season wars continue

While early November will mark the end of the 2004 MLB season - one that may or may not feature a ticker-tape parade through Boston - it will also herald the beginning of a truly fascinating second season. The Hot Stove League, which lasts from November to March, is the name given to the off-season's flurry of big trades and exorbitant free-agent signings. It features the same nail-biting tension, high-stakes match-ups and record-breaking numbers as the regular season, even if those match-ups are between agents and general managers, and those numbers are usually preceded by dollar signs.

Sideline Scholars: The greatest game of our generation

8:15 p.m.: As I sit down to watch the last game of this bizarre series, I have no clue what to expect. I don't think I've ever seen any game with such possible historic consequences before. The Red Sox could be the first team to come back from 3-0 down at the expense of the Yankees. Wow. 2-0-0-4 is hard to chant. What could happen in Game 7 to top this thing off? A Sox win would do it I guess.
