(No one except Annie S prob reads my baseball posts.)
The plucky A's won their World Serious last night. At a finally frickin' sold out house (which was not really sold out, but whatever, ... )
The A's are likely candidates for the Wild Card, and I am not crazy, at all, about meeting them in the playoffs, but their story is just about done.
It is a beautiful story, yet, one that ultimately will result in gorgeous, beautiful failure, most likely at the hands of the Rangers, who are way too busy thinking about the World Serious.
The A's will promptly go a massive losing streak, starting today, nine sixteen two thousand twelve.
