Royals/A's started in September. Will end in October.
When the KC Police tweet for people to stop committing crimes, are they including Ned Yost's decision making?
When did baseball snobs start resembling soccer snobs, reminding us that they were watching baseball all year long?
Everybody bunts ... sometimes. (Michael Stipe voice)
Sorry bro, only the Royals can play small ball in this one. Step back.
Coco grabbed his hamstring after fouling off the previous pitch. That last swing looked like he really hurt himself
"I know what's beyond Heaven. It's in the past." --- one of my son Desmond's deeper gems http://t.co/r30m5GGMtL
Crisp out here taking YOLO swings lol
If this is Cal Ripken when he's excited, I can't comprehend how boring he must always be.
Perez has the patience of Homeland's Carrie Mathison.
So Ned Yost is basically Scott Brooks, based on Twitter opinion.
Royals are playing small ball, huh? Who's their Stretch 4?
Man, this is incredible. It really is. October magic, in September.
This game has taken so long, when it started, bunting was an accepted strategy.
Feel lucky that I don't tweet baseball very often.
All the October baseball tweets.
heads up - the game will not end until all the nerds can claim there was an insane decision made
Salvador Perez with some Asdrubal at-bats tonight.
Andy Roddick is dead to me. His text: "I can't wait till tomorrow when I tell you that Ned Yost is a good manager."
Ideally, that should have ended at the stroke of midnight on a balk or passed ball.
So what is it, Twitter: Smallball? Moneyball? Or, that's baseball?
Not saying this game is taking a long time, but all of Oakland's players shaved before the game.
Who's the Royals' back-up catcher? This guy is killing them.
The Royals have had the misfortune of Perez being at the plate when it was time to take the lead
Hope and heartbreak are so closely related in post-season baseball.
I don't know if I would leave Yosemite Sam in there. Of course, Perez looked so bad last time up.
Walkoff wild pitch would be cool.
I don't y'all they won't stop bunting!
all the bunts just to spite moneyball
One hit, KC. One hit ....
Eric Hosmer looks like a guy who always slides into first base.
Got to love MLB post season
SAFEEEEEEEE. I hate beyond all reasoning the head-first slide into first, and that's the first I not only liked but that I celebrate
I'm excited that, no matter what, the Royals get to experience October baseball. The clock's about to strike midnight on the East Coast
Bunt, steal, slide into first, whatever.
So close to calling that slide into first
brad pitt is sweatin so much right now
No one is in that good of a mood getting back to their house the next day.
This game needs to end so Billy Beane's precocious daughter can go back to practicing alt-folk songs on her guitar.
Cannot get Dodgeball line, "DO YOU BELIEVE IN UNLIKELIHOODS" out of my head.
The total for tonight was 6.5, so of course both teams have to top it. Kid that pitches seven times all season throws a 1-2-3 10th? Sure.
Geez, Finnegan. Act like you've been there before.
Finnegan had absolutely no fear. That was fun to watch.
ned yost is a genius (everyone agrees and we are all friends) hahaa
I'm calling it. Here comes the walk-off
Finnegan throwing smoke....
One way or another, this Punto at bat will end with him sliding into first
Bip Roberts still an all-time great sports name.
The A's back to swinging at everything, no being patient at the plate. They're feeling the pressure again
I'm totally going to read about this game in Sports Illustrated in two weeks
I love this for Kansas City. No city deserves it more.
What a great 2 nights to be a sports fan in Kansas City. Chiefs whack the Patriots, & the Royals might comeback to save their season
You think that Anthony Bourdain guy on CNN gets mean looks from real reporters in the cafeteria, like, "Where you eating tonight, Guam?"
On to whiskey. Can taste hope - it has hints of Oklahoma Joe's BBQ - and am starting to believe. What a game.
The path that Reddick took to that sacrifice fly in the corner had my baseball heart beating a little bit faster.
Nothing better than winner-takes-all playoff games. Some real drama in KC tonight.
The Royals made that look so easy. Bloop single. Sacrifice bunt. Steal third. Sac fly home.
For you NFL fans looking to relate to this MLB game, each team has scored as many runs as the Pats did with Tom Brady this week.
When are they stopping the game to honor Jeter?
Going into extras, KC has already used its big three relievers plus Ventura.
That was fun
Yes sir! How bout that manufacturing of a run
c'mon baseball, i wanted to go to bed
I can now name two players on the ball club from Kansas City.
Curious to see who Ned Yost sends out for penalty kicks
Ned Yost Manager of the Year!
Baseball is wonderful
Where all the haters who said I jinxed the Royals now?!
Damn, baseball. This is awesome.
And this game is tied. Baseball is life right now. I can't move from my seat.
here we go, Royals, here we go.
Not sure which was better: Jarrod Dyson's speed or his dance after. Well, the dance made me cackle, so I'll go with the dance.
Now that's great baseball
YOST I FORGIVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The last time baseball wooed me with its siren song I drove from Des Moines to Chicago for Bartman game ...
Ok. You can live with the bunt a little more now when you have a dude that has those types of instincts and speed.
Big time onions or baseballs
Bray Wyatt couldn't throw that dude out at third, huh?
Dyson steals third. Tying run 90 feet away with one out.
Finally, a Dyson that doesn't suck!!!!
If JPA can go yard off Sean Doolittle surely the Royals can scratch out at least a run
I think you have to steal third here.
The last time a championship-winning team had two rookies in the top-10 in minutes played was the 1980 Lakers with Magic and Brad Holland.
KC, the land of BBQ, great food, good people, Mizzou fans and KU fans living (somewhat) in harmony, Arrowhead and ... POST-SEASON BASEBALL
The time to bunt was in the 8th with 1 out and speed at 3B
Never been a fan of bunting (unless pitcher is up). Outs are too precious. Especially now. Maybe it'll work out.
bunting in the bottom of the ninth… you sure Yost just isn't LaRussa in disguise?
Wow I am about to lose my s----
I'd have more confidence in a pitcher named Doalot
DON'T BUNT WITH DYSON ALREADY ON BASE!!!!
Reddick ran toward that ball like he has Ernie Grunfeld's hips.
This game is starting to remind me of the end of Major League. And I think Willie Mays Hayes just came in
Playoff baseball is the bomb! Royals making this interesting
Where there's a Willingham, there's a way
Yosemite Sam is going to blow this save.
nice piece of hitting. hit away from the shift
Here we go. A bloop single and a pinch-runner who's sure to steal second base
drop drop drop DROP!
So, it all comes down to this
Wow, nothing ruins this playoff atmosphere at my house with my two daughters like this 1-minute Viagra commercial.
That Jim Johnson won't pitch this inning for the A's reminds us of the Orioles' smart trade and not simply cause Johnson isn't on the A's.
The fate of this game rests with Doolittle
Seriously, can anyone else hear the music from the end of "Major League" or am I simply losing it? LET'S. GO. ROYALS.
I know Twitter is over-reaction theater: But the idea I picked the Hornets to win 47 games, and people thinking I underestimated them...wow.
Advanced metrics say the A's don't score here.
And Lowrie swings at the first pitch after two walks in a row ... smh
Who on the A's is praying hardest for an insurance run right now?
Just give the division winners a first-round bye. Add a couple more teams. Mike Trout could be like Mr. December.
Holland, bro, come on man, get through this and keep that momentum rolling ....
Is baseball the most high variance sport in terms of excitement?
Ducks QB Marcus Mariota has thrown a TD pass every 7.4 pass attempts, best in the country this season.
I don't see how you don't have best of three at least. This one-and-done is the NCAA tournament right here -- a Game No. 163 crap shoot.
Sparano tapped as Raiders coach. Nice. Press conference at Bada-Bing?
Ah, I hear some sweet, sweet music.
Some nasty sliders by Luke Gregerson resulting in two ugly ABs
Per ESPN, Westgate SuperBook has Heat over-under at 43 1/2, which does seem a bit low, projected two below Hornets, 6 below Wizards, Raptors
I found Bourbon. Two runs and it's a perfect night.
On the one hand, 90 FEET. But on the other, the lead is cut to one. LET'S DO THIS ROYALS. Keep grinding.
Maybe it's good the jays did t make the playoffs. This seems like torture
Gregerson with the 2 K's. Wow.
Bourbon. I need Bourbon.
Two super-clutch strikeouts by Gregerson
You gotta tie the game here. This is your shot if you're the Royals.
Perez might have gone up to the plate there and swung holding the bat by the barrel.
This is so intense ... One-game playoff. Tying run in scoring position with two outs. An out could end the season, a hit could win it.
My dog has had better at-bats than that.
What kinda approach was that from Perez?
This is excruciating ...
Quality at bat there
Perez with a super unclutch at-bat. But another stolen base puts go-ahead run in scoring position with 2 outs
What an incredibly bad at-bat. How do you not take a pitch there?
Worst at-bat in history.
Why isn't he stealing???
If the Royals really want to freak everyone out they should put George Brett and his pine tar in the on-deck circle.
When Terrance Gore scores the game-tying run, it's going to make not getting a car for his 16th birthday on Monday a distant memory.
Melvin is sticking with Gregerson ...
The A's pets' heads are falling off!!!!!
Yeah, baseball is boring
Yost, whatever you are thinking, do the opposite RIGHT NOW
And yes, I am with all my might jumping on the bandwagon of the team who hasn't been to the playoffs in 29 years!
All baseball should be one and done.
Geez, Kansas City is deafening. It's a three-run eighth so far. Royals down 7-6
Is this moment why Alex Gordon was drafted so high?
It would be a fitting end for the A's to collapse after gaining such a big lead
Well, lookey here.
Looks like I got to the baseball game just in time. We have a rally in KC
Have the A's heard of a pickoff throw to first? A pitchout? My goodness.
Terrance Gore just stole 2nd. Still has a lot of homework to do.
Someone check on Beane
Gosh, it's really crazy just how much those rally caps really work ...
That dude looked like Willie Mays Hayes on that stolen base
Talking to several Wolves players today, it's clear Dunks After Dark was a smart move. That fan turnout really resonated with them
If I was a betting man, I'd bet the over on the Spurs win total. They'll probably be a good basketball team.
In this version, with Billy Beane somewhere else anxiously awaiting the outcome, we need his heart to break. Sorry Billy. But we need it.
Fun night at Arlington Chamber of Commerce dinner. Hosted panel talking about the College Football Playoff Championship Game. 104 days out!
Tying run now at second base ... Royals crowd back into it
Vegas over/under for the Spurs is 56.5 wins. The Spurs have won fewer than 57 games three times in a full 82-game season since 1999.
Nobody should ever mess with what's working during a rally so KC fans want you to keep crushing Yost.
Bold move putting Terrance Gore into this game on a school night.
Love Ernie Johnson but not as a baseball playoff game play-by-play man
A's don't wanna see Billy Butler
These Royals are not done. I love this game.
Another chance to work on that delayed steal, Ned!!!!
COME. ON. ROYALS.
Tying run comes to the plate. Lester out. Gregerson in.
Don't watch a ton of baseball -- is Billy Butler a man-sized boy?
Yes Stuckey and Solo Hill worked w/ starters today, but Miles was held out with minor injury. Hill likely to start season off the bench.
Fortunately for the A's, that isn't even challengable
I don't know ... that looked fair to me ... live anyway
If the Royals pull this off, the curse of the Balboni will be lifted forever!!
Not dead yet...
Score that ground out to 2nd 4(eyes)-3.
Since you ask Cavs win 59, Bulls win 54, Wiz win 51, Raps win 50 and Heat win 48.
Working in Bucks favor: last year's team was 20-win team by Pythagorean estimate and had basically everything go wrong.
Headline for tomorrow in Kansas City: Yost is Toast.
Yost needs someone to spill a soda on the court.
Definitely take the over on the Hawks and the under on the Kings.
ned yost is so stupid! (everyone agrees and we are all friends)
I bet George Brett had déjà vu. "The most perfect double-tapered shit of my life ... who are the pitchers in this game?"
Should post soon. We also talk some sports.
"As for the World Series champs, it turns out Lorde was right. They'll never be Royals."
Feel badly for Royals fans..they wait this long for a post season game and what happens? Shields is pulled...he leaves for free agency..
47 should get them into the sixth spot in the East behind: Cavs, Bulls, Wizards. Raps, Heat.
MY COLUMN: Yeast rises, Yost falls
6FWIW, My over/under on the Hornets is 47 victories.
That walk Josh Donaldson drew in 6th inning just as important as any of his regular-season clutch hits.
Tim Duncan, already in mid season form: http://t.co/6HGhlrFxzt
Oh, and that woman who gets a puppy if the Royals win...may want to start thinking about something else...like a parakeet
Take back everything I ever tweeted about Josh Reddick.
There is absolutely no tension or excitement to this game. TBS needs to dial up Charles Barkley. " Well, Ernie, KC is just turrible..."
Lester up to 10 straight retired and getting stronger. No doubt, the 4-run lead helps
Swin Cash and Lisa Leslie talking about experiences with domestic violence on CBSSN's female sportstalk show "We Gotta Talk." Interesting.
Jim Frey wants to manage the 7th inning for the Royals.
Game 1-A's vs. Angels will be Thursday
Coco Crisp, has been great today
The only thing I want in a manager is a desire to not screw things up.
Yost would pick the worst properties on House Hunters.
Yoda: "Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try." Yost: "What, again, is a bullpen? How's that thing work?"
Remember these A's?
Charlie Weis: " Thank you..Ned Yost..."
So glad I don't actually have a rooting interest in this game.
The Royals, Yosted on their own petard
I assume Raul will hit a homer to win it for KC.
