In that ninth inning tonight, as the Red Sox went meekly 1-2-3, I was actually seeing Kansas City Royals fans waving brooms at the Red Sox and their fans in Kauffman Stadium.
It's worth remembering that:
The Royals are 41-73, the worst team in all of baseball.
The only other teams KC swept this season are the Pirates and Indians. Very dubious company.
They started a pitcher who was 2-7 this season tonight.
Their fans were waving brooms at us when it ended.
It's time to pull out the 2004 World Series video and get a stiff drink.
I need them both right now.
