blue jays eliminated

Toronto fans react to Blue Jays' playoff elimination

Toronto fans are likely still in mourning after last night's stunning 4-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals. At least it's a bitter sweet moment because we still have a rather momentous season to look back on. Let's not forget that we made the playoffs for the first time in 22 years. And, we added a new banner to our lineup when we became the American League East champions.

Yesterday started off on a sour note after Mike Moustakas's controversial second-inning home run. It seemed like all was lost until the top of the eighth inning. That's when Jose Bautista tied up the score with his second home run of the game.

After a stressful rain delay, the Royals pulled ahead and eventually clinched the ALCS. They're now headed to the World Series against the New York Mets.

Naturally, Torontonians experienced a roller coaster of emotions. Many questioned Moustakas's home run; others were enraged when Fox Sports flashed a Royals vs. Mets promo before the end of the game. We compiled some of the best fan reactions and you can read all of them below.

Now that our baseball season is over, it's time to turn our attention to Toronto's other blue-and-white-clad team.
