MLB's wild-card games aren't fair. We all know this.The Mets got a crash course in that earlier this week; their season ended at the hands of a team that was https://www.rockiesedges.com/colorado-rockies/greg-holland-jersey straight garbage for the back half of 2016 solely because Madison Bumgarner is an October-triggered wrecking ball.

Once you get past the inherent absurdity of a 162-game proving ground boiling itself down to nine innings, it's fun and funny. Don't worry about fair; root for chaotic, unexpected and kind of dumb.That, with a slight tweak,where the Texas Rangers find themselves on Friday afternoon. In its first two games against the Blue Jays, the best team in the AL sent out the two dudes who, according to plan, were supposed to drive the bus to the World Series.They were promptly rolled. Texas is in an 0-2 hole because Cole Hamels and Yu Darvish stunk as badly as they could stink.On Thursday, Hamels (six earned runs in 3 1/3 innings) lost his first Game 1 in six tries.

And it happened twice.This is what the Rangers' entire season has led up to; the best record in their league, with two aces set to go 1-2, at home. It's cruel. If there's a bright side, it's that they could go again in Games 4 https://www.rockiesedges.com/colorado-rockies/carlos-gonzalez-jersey and 5, should the series make it that far.Does that suck for Rangers fans? Sure. Is it justice, in a traditional sense? Of course not. The MLB playoffs aren't about justice, though. We already knew that, but the reminder isalways entertaining.
