but not in the way we would've liked. texas lost to the AL west champion angels, so even though buchholz got hammered last night (6 home runs is never a good thing. unless it's on our side), we still got the wild card.
the royals lost a close one with the yankees (yes, you heard me right), walk-off 4-3. alex kinda sorta sucked in the part i saw, striking out twice and committing an error but he had a single and a run so that sorta makes up for that.
and now for some lovely pictures, courtesy ESPN, the kansas city star and boston dirt dogs.
i can guess what came out of his mouth when he let that ball go by. (hint: it starts with an "s" and ends with a "t")
dangit alex! quit playing with your gum and field the gosh darn ball! :)
if i hadn't known better, i would've thought that lind was getting tickled to death.
and a lovely picture of the typical "papelbon being papelbon" in '07's AL east clinching. obviously more of a celebration than last night.
'tis all. i'll have a good one for ya tomorrow :)
