MLB's first Wild Card game of the playoffs came and went last night. The Boston Red Sox defeated the New York Yankees by the score of 6-2. Matt Vasgersian called the play-by-play action on ESPN. He was joined by Alex Rodriguez.

Here is a collection of all the A-Rodisms from last night's game. Some are funny and some are simply wrong.
