As much as I hate the American League, and its wussy little DH, I couldn’t tear myself away from the ALCS tonight. It was, without a doubt, one of the best games I have ever watched in my life.
. . . right up until the fucking umpires completely blew the call in the bottom of the ninth, which set up the Sox to win. Bull. Shit. Worst. Call. Ever.
I am not a fan of the Seventeenth Street Adjacent Angels of Anaheim, but they deserved much better than this fucking bullshit failure of the umpiring crew to make the right call. Both teams played well enough to win, especially the Sox, who are clearly the best team in baseball this year (as a Cubs fan it kills me to say it, but it’s true) but they didn’t need to win this way.
