Readers of Pinstripe Alley, give me your energy! Thanks to your efforts and your willpower, I was able to power up my Spirit Bomb and defeat Greg NOT-orious. While I'm sure someone here might throw him a senzu bean, for now I think we should be fine. It's okay though, while he's off and searching for the Hype-Ebola Mind Chamber, I'll be with you guys ready for anything that comes at us. In the mean time though, let's talk some baseball, eh?
Both American League Division Series are officially over and the Royals will face Blue Jays in the Championship Series. Both games were pretty uneventful, and ended with no controversy...in some parallel universe I'm sure. Over here though, the Rangers and the Blue Jays had one of the wildest postseason games in recent memory. There were errors, there were runs, there was interference, there was protest, there was bat flip (and there were people attempting to throw stuff onto the field and hitting other fans/children but I'd rather not remember how sometimes people can just be awful), this game had it all. Really, if you didn't get to watch the game, you should go watch highlights. And if you did watch that game, you should still watch the highlights.
In the other ALDS, trade deadline acquisition Johnny Cueto pitched an eight-inning gem for the Royals and ensured they would be welcoming the Blue Jays for a best-of-seven series. Tonight though, baseball fans are in stock for a treat as the Mets and the Dodgers have their Game 5 in one of the more exciting match-ups for an elimination game. No matter what happens, this game itself should be fun to watch and a win for everyone (except the losing team and its fans, I guess).
