Don't know if this has been mentioned before, but:

Is anyone else partly annoyed at how good this game is, since it helps validate the still-dumb idea of this game?
 
I had the same thought.

That dropped pitch out....... oof.  The cherry on top of a brutal loss if you're an A's fan.
 
But good for the Royals.

Yup, this team blew up faster than Jonah Hill

This game, and the incredible heartbreak the A's fans must be feeling, reminds me just how infinitely grateful I am that the Red Sox have won some World Series in my lifetime.

I'd wait to see what Russell ends up like before making that call.

Not even the worst deal this season -- that would be the Shark/Hammel deal where he sent his best prospect to Chicago (though he still has Shark next season).
