The A's clinched a playoff spot last night, which led to an exuberant celebration in the clubhouse. In another sign that pitcher Brandon McCarthy is recovering nicely after undergoing brain surgery, teammate and fellow pitcher Brett Anderson was able to poke fun of McCarthy's "condition." He tweeted out the picture above, with the message: "We made sure @BMcCarthy32 celebrated safely and with a bonus drool cup." In other MLB celebration news, Tigers catcher Alex Avila went to great lengths to make sure he didn't get any champagne in his eyes and nose after Detroit clinched the AL Central last night. The champagne and beer were also flowing in Washington, where the Nats wrapped up the NL East.
