- Major League Baseball announced the 2012 Comeback Players of the Year. Buster Posey was the NL choice and Fernando Rodney won in the AL. I thought it would be a 3-way race between White Sox: Dunn, Rios and Peavy. As a fan of Peavy's when he was a Padre, I was hoping he'd win—and have irrational hopes that we sign him in the offseason.
- Posey's Giants won games 5 and 6 of the NLCS, forcing a game 7 Monday. But will it rain?
- As expected, the Red Sox hired John Farrell as their next post-Francona manager. "As compensation, the Jays received infielder Mike Aviles, while the Sox receive right-hander David Carpenter as compensation."
- Japanese high school pitcher Shohei Otani wants to sign a contract in the states rather than one in Japan.
CC Sabathia is having issues with bone spurs in his elbow again. If his conversations with Andrews don't go as he wants, will he pretend they never took place at all?
- If you missed it, there was a 3-way trade of sorts a couple days ago.
- Indians arbitration eligibles, from MLBTR.
- The SBN blog FakeTeams is going with 165 strikeouts for Zach McAllister in 2013. (Dr!nk?)
