Thank You Statistics

Thank you, statistics, for acting as expected and proving yesterday's point. You think now you might be willing to take a breather and let Jon Lester not live up to his record in Toronto?

Look at me, appealing to the irrational, just because I'd like to see that complex clinching formula (Sox win, Yankees lose, Twins or White Sox lose) come into effect and 0ur playoff berth to be guaranteed today.

Speaking of irrational, looks like the Bartolo Colon experiment is dead and done after Colon decided he'd rather not come back from the Dominican to pitch in the bullpen or backup another starter. Abandoning his team during the playoffs; pitching 39 innings during a supposed comeback year; what's the over/under Colon is done with professional baseball for good?
