MLB Network's Greg Amsinger correctly predicts Rangers-Blue Jays ALDS Game 2 to go 14 innings

Amsinger correctly predicts ALDS' extra innings

We can no longer deny it: MLB Network's Greg Amsinger, seemingly a mild-mannered TV host, is actually a psychic. This man can predict the future. We've had our brushes with the gifted before, but this is on another level.

Last year, before the All-Star Game, Amsinger joked with Mike Trout about the star outfielder hitting a triple in that night's Midsummer Classic, scoring the retiring Derek Jeter in the process. And then, sure enough, Trout got his three-bagger and his #Re2pectful RBI:

Clearly, Amsinger needs to start leading his segments with a "spoiler alert." The rest of us haven't seen these things yet.
