Indians 6, Yankees 4!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They did it! The Cleveland Indians actually beat the New York Yankees!!!!!
Now they take on the Boston Red Sox, starting Friday, in a best-of-seven game series. Looks as though I won't be getting to bed before 11 in the next week!
OK, OK, I'm sorry for all you Yankee fans. Really, I know how much it hurts to lose a big post-season game. But let's face it: when you're a Yankee fan, your team is pretty much going to go to the playoffs a few times a decade. Maybe even win a World Series once in a while.
You know the last time the Indians won it all? 1948. That's the second longest dry spell in baseball next to the Chicago Cubs. The last time they were in the World Series, in 1997, they lost to the Florida Marlins, in the bottom of the 11th inning in the 7th game. I watched every pitch. Talk about a heart-breaker.
So let's hear it for the underdog this year, shall we? No one picked them to beat the Yankees. (And by the way, the Yankees' payroll is $200 million. Cleveland's is $62 million. Maybe you can't buy a championship, after all).
Boston, here we come!!
