For those not familiar with Japanese baseball, the second and third place teams in each league play a series for the right to then play the regular season winner to decide the league representative in the Japan Series. But the regular season winner gets a) a one game advantage before the series starts, and b) gets to play all the games at home. Something tells me this wouldn’t go down well in the US…
Guess his #### doesnt work during a drought either.
The most accurate description of how Salvador Perez felt while playing much of the Royals’ last playoff series is too graphic for this newspaper or any website you’d visit around polite company.
The worst came the night after Game 1. He thinks it was something he ate, though he can’t be sure. Whatever it was, his body reacted wickedly. He lost track of how many times he threw up, and the diarrhea was worse. His stomach turned so much and he had to run to the toilet so often that he could ...Read More...

Joe Posnanski: The craziest, silliest, weirdest, wildest, angriest, dumbest and funniest inning in the history of baseball began with a single by a guy named Rougned Odor.
I’m pretty sure that’s how my novel would start. Comedy is the field of my co-writer, Michael Schur, but I honestly cannot imagine a more perfect name to start this madness than Rougned Odor. It’s like Ignatius J. Reilly or Bugs Bunny or Michael Dukakis. I mean, Rougned Odor is a guy who had stories written about the ...Read More...
I remember that season. Too bad it’s impossible for pitchers to go on four-days rest now.

NLDS GAME 5. WINNER TO NLCS TO FACE CUBS:
New York Mets (deGrom) at Los Angeles Dodgers (Greinke). 8 PM. TBS.
People young and old skipped work, skipped school, or just gathered around their TVs, computers, or phones to see their beloved Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday afternoon.

I didn’t realize Chase Utley’s mom was at Game 1.
Interesting. Arrieta’s command was definitely off on Monday, so maybe they figure an extra day’s rest’ll do him some good…
Arnold, 36, replaces Gord Ash, who served in that role for the Brewers since November 2002. Stearns is talking with Ash about assuming another role in the front office.
Arnold previously worked as pro scouting director for the Rays and recently was interviewed by the Miami Marlins for a front office position with that club. He was mentioned as a possible candidate for the Brewers’ GM job but it was Tampa Bay assistant GM Chaim Bloom who actually was interviewed before Stearns was hired....Read More...
The Yankees can see the finish line on a number of long and expensive deals that have worked out with varying degrees of success. Lots of fans clamor for the team to move these bad deals all the time, dreaming of a team to come along and bail the Yankees out the way the Dodgers did for the Red Sox a few years ago. Deals like that aren’t commonplace, though, and expecting the Yankees to be able to shed undesirable contracts is usually a pipe dream. If a team did come along, however, wanting to ...Read More...
Pittsburgh Press, October 14, 1915:
A Dark Knight relegated to pom-pom shaker. DeGrom becomes the ace.

MGL on platoon splits. He followed up with this article.
Shouldn’t a guy with this much speed be better in centerfield?
David Cameron doesn’t like the TBS strike zone. He’s right.
