Don't judge by the title. All I have been hearing lately is how, points on October are crucial...etc. Well of course they are. Every point counts the same. Why does it matter if you get it in April or October? If you suck in October, and are good in March, it is the same as sucking in March and being good in October. It is the same with the MLB. People always say, we can waste a game in April, but not in August. How so? If you lose the division by 1 game, that game in April is just as important as in August. A game doesn't magically earn you more points or a win than another.
