Playing to lose
This Way to the Wild Card Party
Tell Todd Jones to come back for Wild Card champion night. Millar is getting the 'Cowboy Up' speech ready and the Wild Card parade route is being mapped by the mayor. The Baseball Tavern is gearing up for another wild celebration, not seen since the 2003 WC championship blowout (above).
Winners Never Quit
and Quitters Never Win
"I was trying to protect some people ahh if there is blame,
I will take it, because it didn't work. I will agree with that."
