Giants beat Nationals to win trip to NLCS.
Well, it was not to be. After a season where they led the division all the way from April to August, then fought their way back to win their fourth American League Central Division title in a row, the Tigers got swept by the Baltimore Orioles in the ALDS at Comerica on a cold but noisy night. No one can say they didn’t try their best, and I’m pretty sure there will be some post-season honors for a couple of the guys.
On a personal note, it was fun to see them occasionally on TV down here in Miami, but even better when I spent the week with my parents and their MLB Season Pass. Every day that they played we planned our day around the game. Go to the store? Be back in time for the first pitch. Go out to dinner? Get back in time to see the game. There were thrills and frustrations, shouts of joy and outburst of “WTF!?” But that’s baseball. Don’t let anyone tell you it’s a boring game, especially when you have a team that can beat the snot out of the best teams one day and lose a laugher to the worst.
So have a good winter, guys, and come back stronger. Spring training starts in four months, and the voice of the turtle will be heard in the land.
