The Cubs have been the ESPN Sunday Night game a billion times already this season. I hate their broadcasts so much.

I hope he's okay :flutterdear:

Apparently there's footage of a mob dealing some pretty brutal vigilante justice to the guy who shot Ortiz. :unenthused:

Dude's not a catcher anymore but he still took his hat off out of instinct when going after a pop-up :lol:

Also, Adbert Alzolay's debut for the Cubs went extremely well. :yay:

Cubs came back from down 5 and won, with Kimbrel getting his first save. :cooliebelle:

My grandfather passed away and I'm currently in Cincinnati for his funeral. While going through his things, we found these programs and tickets from the 1961 World Series.

$7.20 for a ticket :wowzers:

:fluttersmith:
Blood tests showed 3.8 nanograms per milliliter of fentanyl in Skaggs’ system, which experts said is a significant amount but not outrageously high. Autopsy blood tests have shown nanograms per millileter levels of over 100.

“The level of fentanyl is a significant amount that could produce death,” said Cyril Wecht, a Pittsburgh forensic pathologist with 40 years of experience. “In this case, oxycodone and alcohol were also present and would have contributed to the death because they are also central nervous system depressants.”

The autopsy report noted the absence of norfentanyl, a metabolite of fentanyl, which Wecht said “means that fentanyl was ingested not long before death occurred.”

Tests showed 38 nanograms per milliliter of the prescription-strength pain killer oxycodone, the use of which is prohibited by Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug and Prevention Program, and a blood-alcohol level of 0.122%. A 0.08% limit is considered legally impaired. Fentanyl is not specifically listed on MLB’s banned substance list, but as a “drug of abuse” on the federal Drug Enforcement Administration list, its use is automatically prohibited by MLB .

I missed the last 4 innings of the Wild Card game because I was playing hockey, but man it pleases me so much that it was Hader who blew the game for the Brewers. :flutterunsmith:

The A's have now lost 9 consecutive winner-take-all games. The last one they won was game 7 of the 1973 World Series.

I can't wait for Braves fans to deliberately double down on their racism tonight because someone politely told them that they should be a little less casually racist. :roll:

easy solution to that: just get everyone in the home crowd to leave the game after the first inning :lol:

I had my nightmare Stanley Cup Final of Blues/Bruins this year, so I might as well have my nightmare World Series of Yankees/Cardinals.

Mariners now not only have the longest playoff drought in all of pro sports, they’re the only team that has never made it to the World Series

Another article with more info on this asshole.

Houston assistant GM Brandon Taubman makes disgusting, gloating comments about being glad they had noted domestic abuser Roberto Osuna on their team, then the Astros decide to immediately deny and double down, THEN they issue a non-apology statement that literally says "I'm sorry if anyone was offended". WOW the Astros organization is trash.

lol the Astros just keep digging themselves into a deeper hole



We just can never know the intent of his statements! Let's just move along and forget about how he directed those statements towards a woman who Taubman frequently complained about because she's been critical of the Osuna signing. :thunk:

Third game 7 of the WS in the last 4 years! :yay:

The road team has won every single game this series. Hopefully that trend continues.
