It’s been quite a breath of fresh air watching the mighty teams get shocked (at home!). Except for the Giants over the Nationals, of course. Bleh. I’m on the fence about Dodgers/Cards, as I hate them both, but to see the Angels reeling! the Tigers swept! It’s been fun. I’m even keeping out the thoughts of “what if” and “we could have…” when I see, for example, Bud Norris (why didn’t the Rockies go for this guy, exactly?) matching David Price, and his team wiping out the Tigers. Or even Jason Grilli appearing on a playoff team (back from the dead? why can’t the Rockies just KEEP some of these guys like him, Javy Lopez, even Darren Oliver?) oh…that’s right. I don’t know and I don’t care. The Rockies are off my screen for the duration of the mostly-delightfully surprising playoffs. GO ROYALS! what a fun team, and maybe not quite Cinderella because they are GOOD. But they’ve got me.
Won’t be able to see much more before the Series, though, as I’m heading to the East Coast for some happy family time (no baseball fans in this group :-))
