Back before mlb.com disabled comments on game wraps the Blue Jays fans would use the previous game's comment thread to live-tweet the current game.

During the '15 ALCS (KC in 5 motherfuckers) Jays fans would get mad because I would jump on "their" thread (in full Royals avatar). I usually would stay civil but I couldn't resist trolling them towards the end of the series because they were SOOO confident that they were the superior team. And they were a good team that year. A great team in fact. A high-scoring team. But KC had that late inning magic going with a once-in-a-generation bullpen. Dayton Moore was more lucky than good putting that bunch together. It was serendipity.

Plus the Royals had Lorenzo Cain. It may be another 30 years before they're this good again. That's the way the game is played--small market teams just don't make it to the World Series, let alone twice in a row, let alone win it. Before the Royals won, last small market team to do it was the Reds in '90 and it was easier then. So go Twins. Go Brewers. I got nothin but love for scrappy Central Division teams, and fuck all dem east coast bitches.
