Goodbye to Jose Bautista in Toronto?

Bautista's legacy as an all-time Blue Jays great is secure, but his down year at the plate and injury history make him a risky multiyear investment, David Schoenfield writes. If it is the end, it was a fun ride. What we learned Wednesday


BBTN: Indians Clinch AL, Cubs Tie NLCS

ESPN Stats and Information  

Andrew Miller (CLE) threw 7 2/3 IP, with 14 K and 0 BB in the ALCS with 1 save. His other appearances were in non-save situations or innings.

Scenes from victorious clubhouse: Indians toast AL pennant by quoting Jose Bautista's "shaking in his boots" reference to Ryan Merritt.

How the Indians shut down the Blue Jays' offense (1:24)

David Schoenfield SweetSpot blogger 

What an amazing ALCS by the Cleveland pitching staff, holding the Blue Jays to just eight runs and 32 hits in five games. Andrew Miller was once again unhittable but Ryan Merritt, who admitted after the game he was nervous, was the unlikely hero with 4.1 scoreless innings in his second major league start. He just won a lifetime of free dinners in Cleveland ... and a trip to the World Series.

I don't think there is any doubt Terry Francona is now a Hall of Famer as a manager.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Incredibly and befitting of their resourcefulness, it was rookie Ryan Merritt who led the Indians to the World Series. Who is Ryan Merritt you may be asking? He is a 24-year-old junk-balling lefty from McKinney, Texas, who, prior to helping the Indians reach the World Series had thrown a grand total of 11 major league innings.

Carlos Santana catches foul pop, falls to his knees, as Indians win their first AL pennant since 1997.

Dave Tuley ESPN Staff Writer 

Indians beat Blue Jays 3-0 to win ALCS 4-1. The ViewFromVegas is they were +160 road underdogs today and +120 in the series (they were also series 'dogs against the Red Sox despite having home field in both series). The Indians are 7-1 in this year's playoffs and the over/under has also gone 7-1 in their games.

It'll be Cody Allen for the ninth inning. Last call in Toronto for Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion, due to hit first and third in the inning?
