-P- As you've probably heard, there's a rally today in Market Square at noon.
-P- CBS predicts the Pirates will win tomorrow's game.
-P- FOX's baseball writers offer their predictions. C.J. Nitkowski has the Pirates winning not only the Wild Card, but the entire World Series, with Starling Marte as the series MVP.
-P- Bucs Dugout's very funny sister site McCovey Chronicles asks whether the Giants should even try to win this game, which gives a good indication of what the last few months have been like for the Giants.

-P- From Forbes To Federal has a good take on what Volquez has done differently this season.
