One way or another we knew that baseball would be over this week. I very much wanted that last day to be Wednesday. But the Rays were defeated last night, and the Dodgers were the team that got to celebrate with actual champagne.
Bigger picture I know this was a great and wildly successful season. This loss will fade and we’ll remember a dominant regular season; an easy sweep of the Blue Jays; nail biting elimination game victories in the ALDS and ALCS. But it may be a few days before we can focus on anything bigger picture.
