I got to fulfill one of those "bucket list" things in 2010 and take my grandson's (and myself) to their first World Series game in 2010. Game 4. I knew plenty about the ragarm was we had going out there (Tommy Hunter). Knew nothing about Bumgarner. After 8 innings of three hit shut out baseball, I'll never forget him. Dude was spectacular. Been a fan ever since.

Estrada is the AL version of Madison Bumgarner.

So that's what it looks like to beat Texas.

Now I just wonder how it feels...

Well yeah. MadBum is arguably the greatest playoff pitcher of all time and Estrada is nowhere near that.

But Marco has been money in the playoffs the last 2 seasons and they are similar in that they don't throw very hard and use amazing deception to get guys out. Marco has been a stone cold killer.

He has a 1.99 ERA in 4 postseason starts for Toronto (27.2 IP).

Texas fans (yes, plural, as opposed to a single rogue fan) booing trainer for checking on Liriano after he took a line drive to the head. Stay classy guys.

A bunch of hyporcritical pricks.

At least the Jays don't have despicable human beings on their team like Bush and Odor.
