MLB Exit
The Blue Jays, I believe, are the only MLB team not to make the playoffs this century.

There was 3 scenarios today of game results that would've required a game 163, but none of them materialized. That would've been weird having 3 game 163s.

The 1st place Orioles, having already made the playoffs, threw Derek Jeter (right-handed batter) an outside batting practice fastball while playing their 2nd baseman directly behind 2nd to hold the runner. WTF!? This resulted in Jeter getting his 7th walk off hit of his career, his last game at Yankee stadium. It was the only walk off hit of his career where the other team won the division (obviously not a stupid team) while playing a hall of fame slap hitter to pull the ball. Unrelated, it's really easy for a hall of fame slap hitter to hit a batting practice outside fastball to where the 2nd baseman should be standing.

Toronto sports teams should be embarrassed. The ownership group mostly includes Bell, Rogers, Bell and Rogers. Go Leafs Go!

2014 MLB All-Star Team

My 2014 MLB all-star team. Note the team is not the 25 best stats, but rather the 25 that actually help their teams win.

Starters Clayton Kershaw
  Felix Hernandez
  Adam Wainwright
  Johnny Cueto
  Corey Kluber
  Max Scherzer
Relievers Craig Kimbrel
  Greg Holland
  Hudson Street
  Tony Watson
  Wade Davis
  Dellin Betances
Catchers Buster Posey
  Yadier Molina
Firstbase Miguel Cabrera
Secondbase Robinson Cano
Thirdbase Josh Donaldson
Shortstop Alexei Ramirez
