Cleveland will play Boston

Most people are expecting the Tampa Bay Rays to play the Boston Red Sox tomorrow.  This may not occur. Using conservative Republicans in the House of Representatives as their models, the 43000 fans who attended the Cleveland Indians--Tampa Bay game last night and saw, sadly, that the Indians were defeated, have decided on a plan.

Upset that they lost, the Indian fans will descend on Fenway Park tomorrow and refuse to let the scheduled game commence unless they can play the Rays in a best 2 out of 3 to determine who advances.

"The one and done wild card game is not fair "  Said one fan.  "And we are not going to sit here idly and watch the abomination of a one and done winner-take-all take effect.  We have to be responsible to what is right, and what would be right is a best 2 out of 3. Until that goes into effect we will close down the playoffs."

"But" says an observer "How can you do that? You knew the rules before the season began."

"We didn't like the rules then and we don't like them now."

"But there was a vote, and you lost".

"Right. But we did not like the vote."


"So, we're shutting down all of baseball until we get our way."

"What if you had won the game against Tampa.  Would it be alright for Tampa to shut down your series with the Red Sox."

"Hell no. "

"This is like the Republicans shutting down the government because they don't like the Affordable Health Care Act."

"It is indeed."

"I heard a senator the other day ask how Republicans would feel if Democrats said that if you did not change the gun laws, they would shut down the government. Would that be right for the Democrats to do that?"

"Hell no."


"Obamacare no. Guns yes. Tampa Bay no. Indians yes."
