From Last Night:
- The AL combines to shut out the NL to earn home field in the WS
- Cabrera scores the go ahead run
- MLB and players tribute Mariano Rivera as he comes in for a perfect 8th inning
What I’m Watching Today:
- Nothing. There is no baseball. This is the worst.
The Big Question:
- Did you like Leyland going to Rivera in the 8th?
Leyland did it to make sure he got in the game, but I liked it for a different reason. This way, Rivera got to walk off the mound to a standing ovation rather than have the team come out onto the field in the 9th. I think it allowed for a better tribute, and the actual inning doesn’t really matter. He’s known for pitching in the 9th, but he should be remembered for being the best reliever, period. The inning doesn’t matter. I enjoyed the game. Let’s get back to baseball.
