ALDS Elimination Day: Game Thread

One way or another today is the final playoff game for two of the four American League teams.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday we all got to enjoy the end of the Cardinals playoff run. Today we'll see two more teams end theirs. The Blue Jays and Rangers head back to Toronto for their Game 5. The Astros and Royals head back to Kansas City. Personally I think it would be kind of funny if two Missouri teams were eliminated at home. I know it's cruel. I just don't want Cardinals fans to be able to live vicariously through the Royals.
