Game 6 of the 2011 World Series…The Texas Rangers needed one out, one strike, one pitch made by Neftali Feliz, and one defensive play by right fielder Nelson Cruz to bring home the first World Series Championship in Texas Rangers history. The pitch the Rangers were looking for and the play they needed were not made. One game later, the Rangers were in the locker room, suffering from the agony of defeat after one of the greatest World Series of all time.
JoePos considers an extra wild card spot on SI. After reading it, I'm left feeling similar to how I do now...which leads me to the thought, if there's this much angst about how unfair it is the TB and TOR (though really, it feels like there's this much angst to the idea of BOS or NYY missing the playoffs), then why not go to 4/8 4-teams divisions (outside the whole needing 2 teams thing)? Ostensibly, BAL and TOR have enough money to compete (reasonably well) with NYY and BOS, right?
