After suffering through the Jays’ season, last night’s AL Central tiebreaker is exactly what I needed. It was easily the best baseball game I have seen in a long, long time. People call soccer the beautiful game, but it doesn’t hold a candle to playoff baseball.
Here are a couple of quotes I’m ripping from facebook that describe my feelings from last night exactly:
I would have suffered several nervous break downs if I had to watch the Jays play a game of this magnitude to get into the playoffs.
thanks, Twins and Tigers, for reminding me that baseball doesn’t have to be about mind-numbing frustration.
