    Instead, the Cubs swoop in and hire him before notifying David Ross of their plan.

    Carlos Mendoza hired by the Mets away from the Yankees.

    And now the Brewers need a new skipper...
    And the Cubs are paying him...being reported as 40 mil over 5 years.

    The story behind the link to the Tigers and Colonel Sanders is wild.

    Good for them!
    Japanese baseball as a whole is wild. I’ve gone down the rabbit hole on NPB and it is fascinating stuff.

    They celebrated by tossing a guy dressed as Colonel Sanders into the river.

After playing the first 13 of his 16 major league seasons on Chicago's north side, he said upon winning a World Series with Arizona "I wasn't good enough to play first base for the Chicago Cubs, but I was good enough to play first base for the World Champions."

    It is kind of funny that the Rangers won the WS, lead by two pitchers that the Yankees didn't believe were good enough to win in the post-season. 8 of the Rangers 13 wins.

    And Bruce Bochy sure does know how to win a world series.

    Oh, trust me. Us Yankees fans are fully aware of this... (I never could understand the Montgomery trade. Useless in the end.)

    I like Bochy winning with another team, the same team he beat for his first ring. Beyond that, meh. Will be interesting to see if Ted Cruz now pretends he's a Rangers fan and tries to join the parade; he got pretty upset when his daughter switched teams.

    Over in Japan, the Hanshin Tigers are one win away from their first Japan Series title since 1985.

    KFC’s across the Kansai region moving quickly to shutter their Colonel Sanders statues…

    I'm excited to see a new pbp person for the Twins. I actively avoided home broadcasts because of Bremer and nearly every color commentator they rotated through.

    “Retires” doesn’t feel right. I know it is the word that’s been used, but something is fishy.
    Yeah reading more it sounds like it was not mutual and he was kicked upstairs.
