Turn out the lights

It's been done now for several hours. I'm not convinced that it was really as close as this might sound. That aside though, the real story is Jake Peavy and his broken rib:

An MRI showed one broken rib on his right side and the possibility of a second break. A Padres spokesman said the injury would take four to six weeks to heal.
"He felt something on his right side," manager Bruce Bochy said. "He said he felt it during the course of the game."

Peavy thinks he might have bruised his ribs during a celebratory scrum on the field after the Padres clinched the NL West on Wednesday. He said the injury was probably worsened when he caught a spike on the rubber on a wild pitch in the third that didn't even make it to the dirt.
"I thought I had bruised ribs, I never imagined it would be this," Peavy said. "It's weird. It's been a little bothersome but it was nothing we thought would get in my way.
"I knew it was pretty bad when I came out of the game."

Most analysts agreed that for the Padres to have any shot at stealing this from St. Louis, Peavy needed to come up big. He didn't today and his season is now done.
