MLB Playoffs Are Here: All Eyes On History

Looks like Roy Halladay’s no-hitter caught the attention of the Target Field jumbotron operator.  If you look carefully, you can also see the Yankees sneaking a peek from the outfield.  Congrats to Doc on a masterful pitching performance. Congrats to Carlos Ruiz for not tripping on Brandon Phillips bat while recording the final out.  How in the world do the Reds bounce back from this?

…is anyone there to hear it?  As Evan Longoria and David Price both lash out at Tampa Bay Rays fans for not supporting their team, I am left wondering how Central Florida ended up with a baseball team in the first place.  I thought baseball in Florida was reserved for Spring Training?  Maybe Rays fans are saving money for playoff tickets.  Perhaps the Gators, Noles, and Hurricanes have reasserted their control of the Florida sports scene.  Whatever the reason, It’s a shame really because the Rays have a legitimate shot at winning the World Series this year.
