The Blue Jays epic season came to a close tonight in KC. I has a sad.
It was quite a series. I was sure this years ALCS would be a mirror image of the 1985 ALCS, but it was not to be.
What’s most frustrating is how close we came. Top of the 9th, 4-3 KC, runners at 2nd and 3rd with nobody out. Pinch hitter with a reputation for being good in the clutch strikes out. Lead off man strikes out (and, in an uncharacteristic display of rage, beats the shit out of Gatorade jug with his bat).
Two out, the likely AL MVP at bat. Grounds out, game over.
