This has been a pretty good World Series overall. We need one more bit of drama to make it a great one.

There are no moral victories when games count 2.7x as much, but: 1) The Royals continue to barrel everything. Franco also just missed a grand slam the other way. 2) Matheny PH for Alex Gordon(!) vs. a LHP and was rewarded with a game-tying HR. There are no sacred cows. Good.

If Charlie Blackmon hits .350 the rest of the year, his batting average won't drop below .400 until he has 205 AB. If he hits just .330 - he hit .331 for all of 2017 - his average wont drop below .400 until he has 166 AB. He only needs ~169 AB to qualify for the batting title.

I don't use the word "hero" often, but Mike Brosseau is the greatest hero in American history.

I say this as often as I can, and watching the Braves' lineup make the Dodgers' vaunted pitching staff look pedestrian for the third time in four games, I'm going to say it one more time: Kevin Seitzer is the best hitting coach in baseball.

No quarterback in NFL history has ever averaged 8+ adjusted net yards per attempt in three consecutive seasons. Patrick Mahomes is well on his way to doing so in his first three seasons as a starter. #YoungGOAT

The last 4 minutes of regulation in this Chargers-Raiders game featured some of the dumbest football in recent NFL history

Good thing the Steelers punted on 4th and 1, or the Browns might have scored a touchdown even faster


Patrick Mahomes has won two games at Mile High. The only Chiefs quarterback to have won more games in Denver is Len Dawson. Patrick Mahomes has played five games in the NFL.

The #Munich  shooting disappeared off the media radar so fast after we learned he wasn't Muslim that most people don't know he wasn't Muslim.

Instant update: by championship probability added, that home run was the 3rd biggest hit in major league history.

And Theo wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer.

Speaking as a doctor: passing the #AHCA  through the House without a CBO score is one of the most shameful things I've seen in politics.

The Chiefs are the first team in NFL history to score 26+ points in every game of the season.

This is the United States of America. We split the atom when no other country could. We put a man on the moon when no other country could. So don’t tell me we can’t do something to prevent mass murders when every other country can.

How appropriate that the first Cub to play in the WS will be a black man (Dexter Fowler) - they weren't even allowed to play the last time.
