Playoff baseball is just around the corner and while my beloved (and incredibly awful) Phillies sit in the MLB dungeon, awaiting the #1 draft pick, I am getting pretty pumped to watch some October baseball.
An article that has been making the rounds the last 24 hours is the Kansas City Star's Andy McCullough's take on the 2014 Wild Card match up between the Oakland A's and the Royals.
McCullough's article reads like a Roger Khan novel and beautifully and meticulously details the peaks and valleys of one of the greatest baseball games in recent memory.
Just in case you need a reminder of the atmosphere at Kauffman Stadium that night...
So, who will recreate this kind of playoff magic this year? I'm banking on the Cubs but a part of me is thinking, and believe me, I'm terrified to say this, that it might be.....the dreaded Mets. Ugh.
