Boston wins. It seems awfully hard to envision anything other than a Boston-LA World Series.

Last nights game between Oakland and Detroit was one of the better playoff games in quite awhile. Unfortunately the Tigers won the game. Johnny Peralta had 2 big hits in the game which helped the Tigers win yesterday. From my way of thinking Peralta should not be playing in the Playoffs. He was banned for 50 games at the end of the season for being a juicer. MLB should have a policy/law that bans these players from the Playoffs when they're suspended during the regular season for being a juicer.

If the Tigers were a class organization, they wouldn't have activated Peralta when his suspension was up. You can be on the team all season and not be on the postseason roster. Ask Mark Johnson. Of course, if the A's were a class organization, they wouldn't be employing Bartolo Colon.

The Giants last season didn't activate Melky Cabrera when his suspension was up in October, although he was their leading hitter when he was suspended. It didn't hurt them any, labor-wise or competition-wise, especially against the Tigers.

Game 5 Oakland vs Detroit

Billboard outside #Athletics #Coliseum: "IT'S ALWAYS SONNY IN THE TOWN." Sonny Gray goes winner-take-all Game 5 vs #Tigers Justin Verlander.

Bases loaded with Tigers

Better get Bartolo Colon warming.

Gray pitches out of it.

Verlander with a no-hitter thru five. Go A's.

Good grief. I assumed someone had gotten a walk or HBP. Not good for Oakland.

How do you not go with Bartolo in this game? He's your best pitcher. Just like how the Bravos didn't use Kimbrel in an elimination game. Brutal. These are the playoffs! You play to win.

It is clear why certain teams don't fare well in the postseason (Braves, A's). The names change, but their style doesn't work.

They feast on weak divisions, and then they seem to lose that sense of urgency when the playoffs hit. You see it in the managerial decisions, the players' fundamental mistakes, etc.

Any playoffs without them is cool with me.
