ALDS Game 1 Notes

1. I hate Manny Ramirez.

2. Jacoby's line drive to right to lead off the game was OBVIOUSLY a double or triple, right off the bat, and yet the announcer lazily says, "Ellsbury with a pop fly that is playable for the leftfielder." Then he's shocked when it falls in and goes on to say the ball "found another gear" and talks about how the ball has been "flying out of the park all afternoon." Really? That was the first ball hit in this game. Are you telling me you were watching BP? I call bullshit.

I can't stay up for this. It's too late. Sue me. My Random Thoughts posts from last year's playoffs were quite popular, so I'll continue those with game 2. I've just had a helluva month of September and need some rest.
