A photographer told the story of last night's outcome in a bat flip.
I'm pretty sure he was killed after taking this, so props to him.

I try to like Cleveland, but seeing Chief Wahoo kills it. The team broke a commitment to phase out that odious symbol by using him on caps in these playoffs.
I thought Toronto would increase my bitterness by winning the ALCS. I figured they would rough up Cleveland's starters. What happened to the bats?

Fared well in the hurricane. The house was still there when I returned, something a lot of my neighbors couldn't say. Where was your flooded old home, Jags?
I didn't make picks last week after Thursday, dropping from third to fourth from last. I brought food poisoning home from the hurricane evacuation.
I'm thinking about locking everything this week. If I have a good week I can make up some lost ground. I'd be a broke degenerate gambler.

Deadspin makes an interesting case that it ain't Pagan.

That guy was shown with a beer in his hand after the incident. I think it's more likely the thrower is sitting down out of sight behind the backwards-cap man. The guy behind the suspect is looking down at something and smiling. It could be the thrower.

I'm calling it a semi-flip. There's a little upwards wrist motion.

Fowler's shrug is hilarious. I didn't know he broke up with the girlfriend whose daisy dukes caused sartorial outrage when he won The Players. It was funny to see people claim she was out of place -- in Jacksonville! This is a dress down town.

I'm not as committed to picking Jacksonville as you are, but I refuse to believe they're a team that will go 0-4, 0-5, 0-6, etc. I want the 9-win team I thought we were getting this year. If we fire a coach again and do any kind of tear down, it's too awful to contemplate.

I love Big Sam, but I don't see how his job could've survived this scandal.
England has reached peak fail with this firing, though Allardyce leaves with the best winning record of a coach in the national team's history.

A bag containing four baseballs signed by Jose Fernandez has washed ashore.
posted by rcade at 09:33 PM on September 27
The Marlins played a mournful "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" as part of the Jose Fernandez tribute. I don't think I've heard that before.
Seeing Dee Gordon hit a home run and become overcome with emotion rounding the bases reminded me of losing a rec-league basketball teammate in his 20s a long time ago to a heart attack. Eight days later we decided to play instead of canceling another game, in his honor. We were still in shock and were quite terrible, but it helped.

You beat me to this one. I gotta post my summary anyway for personal reasons:
Arnold Palmer, the favorite golfer of my late grandfather Glenn "Bill" Craker and millions of others he brought into a deep and abiding love of the sport, died Sunday at age 87. He won 62 PGA Tour titles, seven majors in seven years and had a career that spanned six decades. "What other people find in poetry, I find in the flight of a good drive," Palmer once said.
I think I'm headed to the World Golf Hall of Fame this week, which is by my good fortune close to where I live.

Cool. I'll give the returning owners a little while and then email you an invitation. Two owners retired after last season and the first season champ may want back in, so there should be at least one opening.

Absolutely tragic. He has to be one of the best players in baseball to be lost while in his prime.

Why didn't the clock expire in Winnipeg/Calgary? Calgary had no timeouts and completed a pass in the middle of the field on a play that ended with 4 seconds left. I thought the clock would start again when the ball was set. It went down to 00. They were allowed to attempt a 52-year-old field goal that won the game.

Watching the Rams game flashed me back to seeing games as a kid.
That's how pro and college football looked on the Magnavox back in the 1970s: a giant sea of people with no aisles and no luxury.
And we liked it.

Terry Gross asked Abby Wambach this question on NPR: "You'd had a boyfriend in high school. You went to the prom together. You were considered, like, the jock couple of Rochester, New York. Was it helpful on Long Island to have had a boyfriend, to have had sex with a boy, so that you could know with more certainty, 'no, I love women?'"

The Packers just caught the Jaguars with 12 men on the field through a coach's challenge.

I'm surprised there's open griping by minor leaguers about Tebow's contract. They can't be thinking there's an expectation of fairness in the money and hype that go to other players.
When I suggested the CFL for Tebow here in the past, I was told his passing deficiencies made him even more ill suited to that league than the NFL.

I didn't know Plimpton had robust sexual adventures. Tebow might not be the man for that job.
Mets GM Sandy Alderson said of the Tebow signing, "This was not something that was driven by marketing considerations or anything of the sort."
This comment makes me wonder whether any current GM in Major League Baseball would admit that marketing played a role in a player acquisition. It seems like the spirit of Bill Veeck has been completely exorcised from the game.
It would be refreshing if Alderson said, "We saw enough at his tryout to take a flyer on him and boost attendance at our minor league clubs."
