... so maybe we're full of it and the Giants should've signed Cueto instead of Leake, hah?
Congratulations to the Kansas City Royals, and to the Toronto Blue Jays, both of whom clawed their way back from the brink of oblivion and now will meet in the ALCS. For once, the favorites took the underdogs' best shot and survived; now and then baseball needs the best regular-season teams to also be the best in the postseason.
Congratulations also to the Texas Rangers and the Houston Astros, both of whom came out of nowhere to surprise everyone, each with their own exciting style of play.
And with the elephant now out of the room in the National League as the Cardinals were eliminated, it's wide-open. We get the feeling, though, that Zach Greinke will be the difference tonight, and we also get the feeling that the upcoming World Series is lookin' awfully blue from both sides.
