Definitely a big surprise on my end. I got so busy today and forgot to check in until after Game 6. I figured it was just to see how badly we lost. Then I saw SS Bauer got hurt and for whatever reason the sim put in the lesser of my two available SS for three games.

I had activated Bob Jones, who has never played in the majors, before the LCS to take a bench spot. He was inserted into the Game 7 lineup ... and delivered the go-ahead grand slam and 5 RBI to push us into the WS. How's that for an unlikely story?

We've made the playoffs 6 times in 7 seasons and this is just our 2nd WS out of that run and still looking for a title before age sinks in. Hopefully this is a good sign.

GL, Detroit. You swept the two-time defending champions, so I know we've got a battle ahead.

Good Series Red, and congrats. Hope I see you here again next year! Not likely, though, I think I got out of the AL by luck!
