Look, it was a nice play, buddy. But those were poor fundamentals. You coulda dropped the ball!  Next time, toss the baby aside and use BOTH HANDS to snag it.  I see you doin’ that again, it’s $5 in the fine jar.  Now go do your laps in the outfield.  (h/t to Vince at The Cleveland Scene):

If there is an ALCS Game 7, Ric Flair will call out “Play Ball!”

I don’t really care who wins the ALCS, but part of me wants to see it go seven games now. Why? Because if the Astros win tonight and force a Game 7, the series will be visited by a Rolex-wearin,’ kiss-stealin,’ wheelin-dealin,’¬†limousine ridin,’ jet flyin,’ son of a gun, jack! From the Chronicle:

The Astros-Yankees American League Championship Series gets to a Game 7, the Astros will have pro wrestling superstar Ric Flair call out “Play Ball!” before the game in a video message. Astros right fielder Josh Reddick is a huge wrestling fan and uses Flair’s entrance music every time he steps to the plate at Minute Maid Park. Fans also have adopted the wrestler’s “Woo!” yell throughout the season.

That’s pretty cool. It’d be even cooler if it ended with a Dusty Finish.
