I love playoff baseball and despite the fact Brian Cashman cant assemble a team and the Yankees will be watching I will be watching to.
The playoffs start tonight with a one game wild card between the A’s and the Royals. We get a fantastic pitching matchup with Jon Lester vs James Shields. This is the reason both squads acquired these guys for games like this.
The A’s were the best team in baseball for 2/3 of the season and dropped to the worst team record wise the last 1/3. The Royals will be making their first playoff appearance in 29 years.
Royals fans should enjoy it because I am predicting it does not last past tonight. I expect a tight low scoring game and I will take the experience with the A’s as they get new life.
