Actually - need to revise that Gee is only guaranteed IF he makes it to opening night
If the Jazz do a Royals-like rebuild, Utah will be back in the playoffs in 2041.
Somewhere, in the champagne stained bowels of Kauffman Stadium, the Royals just bunted again.
keep piling on in my mentions hahahaha
I wonder if it's gonna take my Redskins 29 years to be good again
Sometimes I really wonder about humanity. But oh well, I can block 'em and I do often frequently always constantly.
Moss: "I don't think anybody is going to look back on this game with regret. We gave it everything we had."
Moss: "We played the best baseball we've played in a while."
Pedro punished Ned Yost more than Zimmer.
Can you imagine how Pedro would've destroyed Tom Watson?!?
Tone in the A's locker room is just they just came up short. Nothing to hang their hats on
Pedro still bringing the heat in October
Happy B-Day my dear Jo. Life could not be better. I am a lucky man to have her in my life. http://t.co/4z9zzDhRVH
Pedro Martinez is killing Ned Yost right now
Crushing defeat for A's. Won't soon forget image of a relieved George Brett after his Royals score winning run. Have to be happy for KC, tho
Royals payroll $90 million. A's payroll $76 million. You get what you pay for, Billy. Like I said, Moneybawl.
Ned Yost looks sweaty http://t.co/DJzZwg5lxi
OK yes, fire everybody. Geez, those wonderful execs and managers in Colorado, San Diego, Houston and Miami might be available!
That game symbolized the A's season, Built up a big lead, but totally tanked it in the end. Congrats to the Royals. Deserved it.
The Oakland A's are now 0-7 in winner-take-all games in the Billy Beane era.
Royals payroll: $90 million Yankees payroll: $209 million.
Meanwhile, in San Diego, Grizz staffers can confirm Lolita's Tacos and Sammy's Woodfired Pizza as worthy of your patronage.

Kobe: "Being Swaggy P is fantastic. But for people to pay attention he's got to put in work on the court."
"... The one constant through the years, Ray, has been baseball." -- James Earl Jones in "Field of Dreams"
Headline change in Kansas City: Yost Can Coast.
Dane Iorg now no longer the last player with a postseason walkoff base hit for the Royals
Meanwhile Don Rickles killing it on Craig Ferguson cc @amyknelson
the dummies win again! [cue ned yost urinating on bill james abstract]
So, Mr. Henry, you guys still hiring? http://t.co/RTweo61faH
Best part of KC winning? MORE BUNTS.
Now if the Giants lose tomorrow, Bay Area fans can at least band back together and start analyzing Steve Kerr's training-camp ball movement.
Man, baseball is such a great game, and to see that expressed in a place like Kansas City breaking a generation-old drought is mesmerizing.
George Brett’s reaction was the best quote for this game.
Yes, blame me for the A's getting bounced out early again.
I love you Kansas City. You deserve this. The world is beautiful.
I bet the ol' fraternity house at Mizzou is on fire right now.
This is the best interview I've ever not understood
Put the dropped pitchout on Norm's 5 plays tomorrow
Up 7-3 with Lester pitching into the 8th... and eliminated. That's a deserved loss.
Salvadorvation for Kansas City
George Brett had a swing. Beautiful hitter.
Great game ...
Curious if the Royals leave their manager off their division series roster.
Salvador Perez ... Of all guys to get the game-winning hit after his early misses opportunities. That game was incredible.
Adam Dunn would've gotten that out.
Beltre makes that play while farting and thinking about his current to-do list...
Or the 8th...whenever the heck it was. Just happy they will have more playoff baseball to watch in KC
Have a puppy. http://t.co/M0s6292eBb
No one thought the A's would lose a 7-3 lead with Lester. Unbelievable.
Classy of Jonny Gomes to flip that little Royals kid that baseball. Nice to see. Great game. Go KC.
Tonight they're going to party like its 1985.
That game sums up how the A's played for the last 3 months. What a great night for the Royals and KC. Angels/Royals start Thursday
Does Ned Yost still get fired???
I guess Salvador Perez made up for that God-awful AB in the 9th
So happy for the Royals. So sad for Adam Dunn
Hell. To. The. Yeah.
This is like the worst player on the court hitting the game-winning shot from 30 feet
Puppies for everyone!!!
Salvador Perez. Yup. I'm sorry.
KC MASTERPIECE!!!! BARBECUE FOR EVERYONE!!!!
PANDEMONIUM!!!!!! WE ALL WON! WE ALL WON!
They're partying on the plaza tonight.
I love Perez!!!! He's awesome, baby!!!! I knew it would be him all along. KC, rockin.
PEREZ. SAL PEREZ WINS IT!!!! SAL PEREZ WINS IT!!!!
Bunt ball >>>> Money ball Congrats, Royals.
Ok that was great
Gumby Hand did it! Gumby Hand did it!
I never doubted Ned Yost.
The Yost rises! My column
Well, that sucks.
HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!!!!!!
Final: Royals 9, A’s 8. Epic game. Baseball won. Baseball’s postseason, you in?
Chuck Norris wouldn't have dropped that ball.
Steal! Small ball! NED YOST I .... don't hate you?
I was completely expecting for Salvador Perez to swing at that pitch out.
Perez has the pitch selectivity of an unemployed movie executive.
Perez is so do for a big hit
Ripken said, "No doubles ..."
Oh, so THAT'S where the centerfielder is located.
Game 3 of 2005 World Series I saw a little kid fall asleep on top of the Astros dug out from the press box. We’re headed there tonight.
It sure doesn't hurt the Angels that both these teams are blowing through their bullpens and game 1 in Anaheim is Thursday
Drunk or not, that guy's gotta get someone to look in on his dog if he ain't making it home.
The National PastBedTime.
I'm not sure how much more of this I can take.
Talking the game not the league. No clock makes baseball the best game around. Gotta get outs.
DirecTV should merge its ad campaigns, so that Creepy Rob Lowe can do something terrible to those creepy marionettes.
Let's all RT that Ned Yost bunting baseball card at the same time and see what happens
This game has made me stupid. I'm now singing "Pop it up up up Pop it up up up Pop it up up up" and I've never listened to that song
It's been 29 years since the Royals last started this game.
kc waited 29 yrs so that is how long this game is gonna go
Man on first, one out, BUNT HIM OVER
I remember baseball.
Swinging bunts suddenly sounds so dirty.
Friend just direct messaged me: "Are you OK?" I told him the truth: "I'm really not."
Hosmer now only needs to slide into second and third bases to complete the cycle.
Whoa. If this was a movie ... well, we probably would have left already because it started at 8. But still, unbelievable.
I feel like that little kid swinging on the ceiling in that commercial: THHIIISSS ISSS AWWWEEESSSSSOOOOMMMEEEE
Nobody has better bro'd than Eric Hosmer has bro'd just now
"OK, I want you to rocket the next pitch off the plate..." "But, Skip." "JUST DO IT!"
This reminds me of that Love It or List It episode when I definitely thought they were going to love it but then they listed it.
I do not have enough alcohol in the house for this. And that is saying something.
This game is insane, y'all.
When does this go to penalty kicks? I need to go pick up dinner
Hey, while baseball happens, on NBATV Isiah Thomas is announcing a Wolves scrimmage and comparing Andrew Wiggins to Deion Sanders
Perfect time for the swinging bunt.
Holy happy crap
Like I said, I'm staying up till this heirloom ends, baby!
The Royals are not dead. I love this game.
CRAZIEST. GAME. EVER.
You gotta be sh*ttin' me. This is awesome.
With Colon at the plate, I smell a hit.
Bat on ball, now.
Yoenis Cespedes to the A's: Miss me?
For a minute I was thinking inside the park HR
If the Royals strand this dude I am going to need some serious help ....
Bunt em home Yost!!!!!
Is Jeter available to pinch hit here?
Kinda want to see Colon squeeze this if you know what I mean
That's something I would've expected from the Royals circa 1986-2013.
Bunting would actually make sense here.
This is unbelievable
So close to an inside-the-park-hosmer
Ibanez keeping MLB Showdown alive.
Royals fans are going to take the bunt of the pain.
It's Otero. Only threw 12 pitches last inning, I can understand this.
Wait Raul Ibanez still plays? (legit question)
I really, really liked Billy Beane and the narrative surrounding him entering this game. But I can feel the loathing building.
So the MLB can't install technology at home plate that shopkeepers the world over use at the thresholds of their stores?
I don't care anymore. I just wanted to see Adam Dunn.
All Bob Melvin needs to worry about now is making sure the KC grounds crew doesn’t roll anyone up in the tarp in the B12.
So it'll be Cook in the bottom of the 12th, right?
It sounds so anti-climatic when the road team goes ahead in extras, but I think I just heard a loud roar coming across the Bay from the East
I understand that less than all the bunting. You have a guy who can get grounders, and you call for a pitch up in the zone with a guy on 3d?
Now the greatest hyperventilating 21-year-old fireballer ever is on the hook for the loss. Boo.
Jason Frasor is a Blue Jay at heart. Getting back at the Royals for 1985.
Man. man man man man man. Let there be more magic lurking in that Royals dugout.
It's a shame Finnegan had the late-night shift at the Irish pub and couldn't pitch anymore.
It's over. I'm going to bed.
Professional base knock there. (I’m saying baseball things.)
It's too bad they got rid of the outfield fountains b/c I'd like to see someone bunt into them.
Why are you calling for a pitch up when all you need is a fly ball?
Take that, small ball.
F---- you, universe.
Yeah, I tweet about positivity and then a passed ball. Great.
Didn't Obama say there would be no bunts on the ground?
Runner on 3rd with 1 out. What does Callaspo do with it?
Mmm... bundts. http://t.co/Q7Ctg5FSua
COME ON ......
The beauty of sports is giving yourself to something you have absolutely no control over. Royals and A's fans feeling that more than ever.
MLB is trying to pull off what the NBA accomplished and have a wild first round. Problem is, it's only two games "technically"
Playoff sports are just the best.
Could speed things up by starting every inning with an out and a runner on second. Speed up committee should take notice.
we got bunts on bunts on bunts
Bunted on Royality
I really hope Dennis has a good year so I can get over some Dieng remorse
I haven't thought about bunts this much in ages.
Anybody remember three innings ago when this game was exciting? God how I miss those days...
Why does it feel 1,000 times more likely the A's will get that runner on second in with one out than with the Royals earlier?
Moneyball has been replaced by Yostball
In Vegas. Shouldn't have taken the under on bunts (it was 13).
Do it for the Memphis Chicks!…Which would be a totally unacceptable name for a team these days, btw.
Look at that. A's playing postseason baseball
It's almost like people didn't get the memo that this MLB season was cancelled ... to begin anew when the Rangers are healthy.
Let’s just roll out Carney Lansford vs George Brett for a hitting competition and get this wildcard thing settled.
A's and Royals fans .... How are you guys holding up? This has to be crushing your stomachs.
Flip Saunders needs a stylist.
It's game 163 1/3!
hoping the A's just troll em at this point and bunt
Yep, still got my signed Bo Jackson Rated Rookie card. In a frame and everything.
Omar Infante = Jared Dudley + Matt Barnes http://t.co/0VcJ6ddd9x
Save your "Just in the NIX of time" Tweets. More free baseball coming.
Went to high school with Otero. I just took my first breath of that entire inning.
Royals determined to make up for 29 years in one evening.
This game would be over already if the Royals ran the triangle.
Those runners stranded on third are starting to feel like some ugly, ominous omens.
I don't believe in climate change, but I believe in the Royals!! (The sign I'd make if I was there)
Let's put the guy in who's batting .140.
I'd DH the Royals' vice president of operations right now.
All I know is that the Brewers would have popped out to the pitcher on half of these bunts...
KC has 6 stolen bases and 3 sac bunts. A's have 0 and 0. Hidden yardage!
Just keeping guys out of the double plays ...
I love Ernie Johnson and know it's baseball, but whenever Charles and Kenny aren't around I feel like he got the second team.
Just because Sogard has glasses, it doesn't make him a doctor, Winer!
Fans in KC have been drunk and then sober like 3 1/2 times during this game.
So. Much. Bunting.
Again. A hit. One swing. Let's do this. In the meantime, more whiskey ....
Drat. I wanted to see Dyson do another dance.
the Royals will win via bunt if it is the last thing they do hahaha
I've never understood fans who boo when a pitcher throws to first base.
If Royals win, and you happen to be in KC, celebration should be Garozzo's for dinner, The Shack for drinks, and BBQ for breakfast.
Just stole the Royals sign for sacrifice bunt -- it's breathing.
Anytime now, U.L. Washington shows up in this game with his toothpick in tow.
Lay it down ... (Al Green voice...)
Calling this double-decker PB&J "The LaMarcus Aldridge." Just when you didn't think it would get to the next level... http://t.co/fiL7sMdOb9
Royals-As: The Bunt for Red October
The Royals have now had their lead-off hitter reach in four straight innings
It's not like I just started watching. I was watching baseball back when Ned Yost was dumb.
Gomes replaces Coco and plays left, Fuld moves to center
It's like, hey, I watch gymnastics even when it's not the Olympics.
