What a beautiful game last night. It is always fun to be on the winning side of a rout, but it as twice as fun when the team on the other side is the Sox of the Red variety.
Bautista hit another home run and currently sits at 38 for the year. This is unbelievable to me, I never would have thought he would have a break out year, let alone a monster season like this. He still has a legitmate shot at breaking the Jays all time single season HR record held by George Bell at 47, that my friends is truely unbelievable and one of things that makes this game so much fun to watch.
Just think of this season, how many near no hitters have we seen? How many amazing moments? In a year were even the most optimistic of us were all but writing the team off they have shown and given everything they possibly can. What an entertaining team.
