Gettin’ a little misty in Chez Shyster. A tweet from the Royals’ Billy Butler a few minutes ago:
Didn’t get the win
in the end but I’m glad my Grandpa Butler got to watch me one last
time on TV. RIP grandpa. I i love ya & will miss ya.
Grandpa Butler left the Earth after seeing his grandson hit a two-out two-run single off one of the best pitchers in baseball in front of a packed house.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.
Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.
Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
