Maybe this was the kind of change the Boston Red Sox were searching for as far as a celebration.

It's not exactly the way they were hoping to do it, but it's finally official...the Red Sox are the American League Wild Card Champions and will face the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the ALDS.

The Angels took down the Texas Rangers 5-2 in the early morning hours to eliminate them from playoff contention.

Now with that out of the way, Boston can focus on more important things such as prepping for the postseason. It's going to be an interesting ride.
