  • Jarred Kelenic has one of those swings that makes baseball look incredibly easy.
  • Marco Gonzales crafted a lovely Instagram post in which he expresses appreciation for his wife Monica and showcases dapper Divish.
  • Our parents made a video about The Double but didn’t use Dave Niehaus’ call. We will now run away from home in protest.

Around the League...

  • Juan Soto delivered the biggest hit in Nationals history to win last night’s Wild Card Game.

  • The AL Wild Card Game starts at 5:00 p.m. West Coast time on Wednesday night.
  • First the manager, now the pitching coach. (It’s worth noting that the recently fired Joe Maddon and Mike Butcher both were longtime Angel coaches and could presumably slide into these roles.)
  • Looks like a full regime change is headed to Anaheim’s bench (which is roughly 27 miles from Los Angeles).
  • Atlanta is in good hands.
  • Two Giants’ institutions are leaving this offseason: Bruce Bochy and the on-field bullpens.
  • Some details from Boddy himself.
