The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are advancing in the playoffs.
And in a way, it’s a little sad.
Boston, Colorado, St. Louis and Minnesota have all been eliminated. I watched those elimination games, and what stuck with me most was stricken looks on the faces of their fans.
The fans in those cities - Boston, Colorado, St. Louis and Minnesota - they know what was really at stake. They understand in their bones that when their team makes their last out and they’re through for the year, it’s more than the end of the season.
The L.A. teams get eliminated…
And it’s more of the same.
The Dodgers lose, the Angels get beat…
Sure, it’ll hurt.
But we won’t have to buy snow tires.
