2009: It's Over

Ballgame over, series over, season over.

With a third straight opportunity to play spoiler, the Royals lost a third straight game to the Twins. Here are some of the pitchers who appeared in this game: Carl Pavano, Luke Hochevar, Anthony Lerwe, Dusty Hughes, Y. Yabuta, Bobby Keppel, Ron Mahay, Brian Duensing.

A hearty congrats to the Twins for getting to 86 wins and forcing the lamest one-game playoff ever. The Twins went 10-22 against the AL East and 19-21 against the AL West.

As for the Royals, it's all over.

Thanks to a "hot" September, the Royals only lost 97 games in 2009. The Royals went 48-81 in games not started by Zack Greinke. Trust the process.
