LOL, Webster Start: Regular Season Finale Gamer

Farrell couldn’t have made his feelings about the importance of this game more clear than by choosing Webster to start. Well, I guess he could have left a bag of poo in Showalter’s office with a sign saying “This is what this game is worth”, but immature fantasies aside, this game means nothing. I’ll hope they win and match the 2004 team’s regular season total, but whatevs; the real games played elsewhere are the ones I’ll really be watching. They affect Octobah, y’know.

  • Lead-off homer by Jacoby. 1-0.

    Rays taking no prisoners today. 6-0 after one. I bet we’ll see them again on Friday, unfortunately.

  • Papi is fast … getting to third on a Napoli double to deep center.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 1:45 pm
  • Scores on a dribbler from Carp. No double play!

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 1:46 pm
  • Six straight balls from Webster! Way to go …

  • Webster throws 34 pitches, walks three, but does not give up a run!

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 2:05 pm
  • No-hitter still intact.

  • A Quintin Berry home run?

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 2:12 pm
  • Not many pitches in the next two innings. Still intact!

  • Swisher wants in on the wild card game…2-run shot in the 1st for the Indians’ only score so far and a leadoff double in the 3rd.

  • Pressure’s on the Rangers!

    With Doobie now in for Webster it’s a collective no-no through 4. If nobody else goes more than 3 innings and the lead holds up, can they credit Webster with the W?

  • Doobie not making a good argument for being on the postseason roster.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 3:22 pm
  • Terrible inning for Doobie. Still only one out.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 3:30 pm
  • Game tied. Well, he had a good season, but that’ll be the last time we’ve seen him this year.

    Better come to spring training in shape.

  • 7-4 Rays now in Toronto. Was 7-0. Wouldn’t it be nice, if the Jays could pull this off?

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 3:47 pm
  • 4-0 Indians, so probably no three-way tie.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 3:48 pm
  • Orioles take the lead on a wild pitch. I know this does not matter, but I find it extremely annoying anyway.

    Thornton also not making a convincing argument for inclusion on the postseason roster. Now Dempster.

  • Bottom of the 8th in Toronto. Jose Reyes comes to the plate as the tying run with two outs. Rays bring in Fernando Rodney who gives up a single to Reyes. 7-5 Rays.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 4:07 pm
  • Anthony Gose singles in a run. 7-6 Rays.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 4:08 pm
  • Brett Lawrie walks on four pitches. Bases loaded for Moises Sierra.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 4:11 pm
  • Sierra fouls off four straight pitches and then strikes out. Damn.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 4:13 pm
  • I am praying to all the deities who will listen to make the Rays lose. Rodney had to work hard, too.

    Devine September 29, 2013, 4:15 pm
  • Adam Lind singles for the Blue Jays to start the bottom of the 9th.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 4:24 pm
  • Tying run on!

    Devine September 29, 2013, 4:24 pm
  • Jays down to their last out.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 4:28 pm
  • Rays win 7-6. Rangers behind 1-0 at the moment.

  • TB will live another game.

    Devine September 29, 2013, 4:31 pm
  • Rangers take a 2-1 lead!

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 4:31 pm
  • 2-1 Rangers!

    Devine September 29, 2013, 4:32 pm
  • If you’re a fan of the Armageddon scenario, you’re now rooting for the Indians to blow it late. Not me…I want the Rangers to win and drag TB through another game, so whichever can face rested Cleveland in their house.

    Devine September 29, 2013, 4:35 pm
  • Nah, I want Cleveland in the ALDS. So let the other teams beat each other up before the play-in game.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 4:43 pm
  • Koji in the 8th? And what if we take the lead in the 9th?

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 4:44 pm
  • Cardinals on the verge of clinching best record in the NL.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 4:46 pm
  • Ranger take out Yu Darvish after 84 pitches and Josh Hamilton immediately ties the game for the Angels.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 4:50 pm
  • Rangers re-take the lead.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 5:01 pm
  • Sox threaten in the 9th but Middlebrooks grounding into a double play ends it. 7-6.

    pale blue eyes September 29, 2013, 5:02 pm
  • Cleveland 5, Minnesota 1. Tito in the play-offs.

    Yankees in the 11th in Houston. Can’t have enough baseball after all the fun they had this year?
