Baseball is not always an exciting sport; to some, perhaps this is a major understatement. But even the most cynical sports critic cannot deny the unique intensity of a playoff game. When everything is on the line, when an eight-and-a-half inning lead can disappear for good in the blink of an eye, when the last pitch of the last inning can make the difference between going on and going home, there’s nothing that could make me change the channel (or study orgo). And for all of baseball’s flaws — some of which were glaring tonight — the last three ALCS games have redeemed the sport for another season. It’s magic. Bring on game seven.
