Where's Dave Winfield When You Need Him?

Cleveland's Progressive Field has apparently turned into Wild Kingdom. You saw the midges in that playoff game two years ago and now the place is suffering from sea gull infestation.

When the Yankees were in Ohio a couple of weeks back they were witness to the sudden influx of sea gulls. They were all over the place. The field, the stands, the roof. Michael Kay droned on and on about it. Well, he would have had a field day last night.

The Indians and Royals were tied 3-3 in the 10th inning when Shin-Soo Choo singled to center field. Mark DeRosa rounded third and headed for home. Center field Coco Crisp got himself lined up to make a throw to the play- but he never got the baseball.

The birds either deflected the ball or obliterated Crisp's view and the ball shot past him for the game winner. You can check out the play on the Indians' website.

Things might have been different had Dave Winfield been in town.
