Good morning everyone and happy Friday! Yesterday the Dodgers trounced the Cubs to secure their spot in the World Series. Now they get to watch and wait as the Astros and Yankees continue their series tonight, where the Yankees will have a chance to make the World Series for the first time since they won it back in 2009. Here’s what else you need to know today.
In Mariners news...
- Heck yeah, Hisashi!
We start a project to stop bullying『BE A HERO』. IWA JAPAN, B-creative agency, and Child development science research, launch the "BE A HERO" project aiming at a world without bullying. There are no good people to be bullied. Bullying is 100% bad bullying side. I hope to be able to help develop various events and seminars so that we encourage people to stop bad things like bullying and violence and look at making things better for enriching their lives, and act for someone in need. Hisashi Iwakuma Presents いじめ撲滅プロジェクト『BE A HERO』始動。 一般社団法人 IWA JAPAN、株式会社 B-creative agency、公益社団法人 子どもの発達科学研究所は、いじめのない世界を目指す『BE A HERO』プロジェクトを立ち上げます。 いじめられて良い人間なんてどこにもいない。 いじめはいじめる側が100%悪い。 いじめや暴力なんていうカッコ悪い事はやめて、自分の人生をより良く豊かにしていく事に目を向けられる人へ、そこから次は誰かの為に動いていける人へ、そんな希望のある環境を微力ながら作っていけるよう、さまざまなイベントやセミナーを展開するお手伝いができたらと思います。 #stopbullying #spiritday #beahero #いじめ撲滅 #noいじめ #no暴力

Chris Taylor on how he got so good this year: "Stop asking that question, please."— Bill Shaikin (@BillShaikin) October 19, 2017
- This week in “awww!”
- Royals GM Dayton Moore is going to Atlanta with his staff. But he’s not going so he can interview for the Braves job, as many might assume. He’s going to study the life of Martin Luther King, Jr.
- Reports indicate that the Red Sox are prepared to name Alex Cora as their manager for the 2018 season.
- I actually love that these two now work together.
- Ron Gardenhire is back in the AL Central. This time, he’ll be the manager of the Detroit Tigers.
- Interesting that Wedge was close to getting the Tigers job.
- Dave Cameron wonders why the Astros offense has suddenly run cold.
- Michael Brantley underwent surgery on his right ankle and isn’t allowed to participate in baseball activities for 4-5 months.
- Given the Nationals’ most recent struggles in the postseason, Federal Baseball takes a look at whether or not the team will look to hold onto Dusty Baker.
- I could watch this on loop all day long.
