    Good for you, Cleveland. Way to show Boston that it'll be no cake walk for them.

    Pretty crazy that Andrew Miller isn't even the closer or setup guy for the Indians though looking at the boxscore, I guess Francona needed strikeouts hence why he maybe came in early?

    Holt and Ortiz were coming up and Miller is Cleveland's only lefty relief pitcher apparently.

    Miller is the only Lefty, he and Allen threw more pitches than they have all season last night.

    If Price doesn't win tonight for the Sox, it won't matter going forward.

    Holy hell, that was a close one.

    Anyway, the Jays are up 2-0, and heading to T.O. to perhaps close it out.

    Jays closing out Texas at home over (real) Thanksgiving weekend would be just beautiful.

    So obviously this is going back to Texas. It's the Toronto way.

    Pretty great that Andrew Miller is pitched when the coach thinks he's needed, not at a time decided by a preassigned inning.

    Most closers do not like or want to pitch outside of the 9th or even 8th if needed...but Andrew Miller's not one of those guys. Willingly gave the closer role to Chapman to open the year despite his awesome tear last season.

    It's a special feeling to be a closer of a winning team and to be depended upon to get the final few outs and anything less to a pitcher's mind is a slight.

    I'm disappointed in the Red Sox so far. This is not how I want to see Ortiz go out. I hope they can take the next 2 and make this an epic series.

    I don't think anyone is going to get in Torontos way in the American League right now. They're coming in with a real chip on their shoulder and are 3-0 right now. Good for them.

    I love that Baez went yard off of a quick pitch.

    The only team that can get in Toronto's way is Toronto. And they're really, really good at that. I'm not counting out Texas until the final out.

    My uncle bought tickets to Sunday's game. He's been going on and on over Facebook about getting to watch the Jays close out Texas and it's bugging the fuck out of me.

    Can't say I would really ever care about what the player wants on that. It's like the basketball player who gets mad when he's not in the starting lineup, even though he gets plenty of minutes.

    Francona's use of his bullpen is inspired. Coaches should learn from it.

    Texas came in looking like they were charged by emotion....Toronto went in looking like it was all business.

    Well earned sweep. I'll just sit here and keep telling myself it will happen for Texas one of these days

    Thought Beltran was a postseason hero, glad the Yanks got something decent for him in the end.

    There's one thing the Cubs know how to do in the postseason, and that's blow a series that they had won

    EDIT: WAY TO GO CUBS!!! I didn't know they had that left in them.

    I saw it coming. It's predictable Cubs baseball. I mean it's fun for Cubs fans and I get that but they won't blow this series.

    NL playoff baseball continues to be far more entertaining than AL.
