    Yesterday | Boston.com

    Since, as Everett's mayor so lyrically put it, his city is going to remain "the butt end'' of Boston for a few more years, I had to look elsewhere this week for a game of chance, a good stage show, slabs of food, and an adult beverage.

Should San Francisco keep staggering and the Pirates continue surging, the Giants likely would squander home-field advantage in the Wild Card Game and potentially find themselves traveling to Pittsburgh for the showdown on Oct. 1, with the opportunity to advance to the Division Series at stake.
