Big League Stew - MLB

Don't get me wrong: Cliff Lee(notes) and the Texas Rangers lineup were the two forces most responsible for their 5-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays in Wednesday's Game 1. 

Allow me to suggest, however, there were also some karmic forces at play in the Rays dropping the first game of the ALDS. After all, you can't dress up a cat in a baseball jersey and rapper wear, make him "spin" a turntable and put it on your scoreboard and not expect to pay for it. Subjecting a cat to such nonsense and ridicule just isn't right (and, yes, I say that as a dog person). 

Anyway, if you're wondering what the heck I'm talking about, a few of the Rays players dreamt up "DJ Kitty" a few weeks ago and they've been playing his viral sensation clip at Tropicana Field ever since. He even showed up during Wednesday's game.

But just because you think you can top the Angels' Rally Monkey by crossing him with Keyboard Cat doesn't mean you should try. "DJ Kitty" best pack up his gear and be gone by Thursday's Game 2. The baseball gods will be angered no further.
