Happy Autumn, New Anarchist City! … Can you think of anyone happier than Eli Manning two games into the NFL season? Maybe Jamal Adams, maybe?
Biggest surprise of this MLB season, well other than that there actually was a season? The Chicago White Sox. The 34-win Sox are going to the postseason and have a chance to hold off the Twins and win their division. They play in Cleveland on Tuesday with Reynaldo Lopez (1-2, ERA 5.40) back in the rotation after struggling early. He was removed in the sixth inning last week after the Twins scored three. How the Chisox use him in the playoffs remains to be seen. Not the case with Shane Bieber. Indians ace is 8-1, has an ERA of 1.74 and the K count is at 112. The Cy Young candidate will most likely make his next start in the postseason unless the Indians teepee collapses in the final week. Bieber will look to solidify his trophy chances after a pair of subpar outings by his standards so we will take the Indians for 20 units.
Mike Moustakas hit a three run homer, Luis Castillo allowed one run, striking out nine and the Reds bruised the Brewers 6-3. W has us at -720 charliehustles.
