If it wasn't for 08 I'd like the Rays a lot more. That and Maddon.

Rays might as well pack for Boston.

Evan Longoria is a money ballplayer. It's been a few years since we had one of those.

I said during the game how much I long for a 3B like Longoria. Hell I'd take a competent 3B.

David Price is fun to watch. Hope the Rays beat Cleveland tomorrow night.

Feel bad for AJ and Rios. One game wild cards can be cruel, but it is an opportunity nevertheless.

You would have bet me in March that both the Rangers and Angels would fail to make the postseason this season I would have mortgage my house against that bet.

Rays, Indians, A's .

It's a small market game.

Preseason there was so much consternation about competitive balance being non-existent with all the money the Angels and Rangers had to spend.

As it turned out, the Angels were never consistently strong. Again. The Rangers had a losing record after August, really, collapses that some White Sox fans consider grounds for managerial firing.

Not that I'm disappointed.

I don't think it's just Sox fans, there are some whispers that Ron Washington is on the hot seat, right? This is 2 straight seasons the Rangers have held the division lead as late as September and two straight seasons they don't even make it to the ALDS.

Also, down 2 in the 8th, WHAT THE **** ARE YOU DOING BUNTING? Nice to see small-ball bull**** not be rewarded.

I believe Andrus was trying to bunt for a hit there with 1B playing back, although the call may have come from Washington because the camera panned to him right before the at bat and he whistled to the batter and 3b coach. But either way, it is a horrible call to give up an out with five outs left in your season and down by two runs. Just awful.

He was absolutely bunting for a hit. With his speed, a left handed pitcher and the first baseman playing back it wasn't a completely indefensible call but a bad call none the less.

Andrus was trying to get a hit, he tried to get that between the pitcher and second base. It took a great play from Price to save the run.

How could you think otherwise? A classic drag bunt with the batter running rather than making sure the bunt was down first as he would for an intended sacrifice bunt. A great bunt against a lefty pitcher who you would think finishes his follow through on the 3rd base side of the mound. But not David Price, who finishes almost square to the plate and bounces to fielding position instantly.

Maybe since no batter on the White Sox can do it we've forgotten what it looks like. (OK, De Aza once in a blue moon.)
