|Jose Bautista reacts to a called third strike during|
Saturday's game in Kansas City.
But I used that one already.
So here is Jose Bautista in a decidedly non-triumphant moment. As I write and post this, the Kansas City Royals have a 2-0 lead in the best of seven series. But now the ALCS moves to Toronto, and this series matches a pair of teams emphatically crafted to fit their home arena. The Royals are speed, contact hitters, outstanding defense; the Blue Jays lineup is one power hitter after another. The Kansas City stadium discourages the long ball; Toronto's retractable dome rewards it.
The Jays are down. They are not out.
