Leave A-Rod alone!

It’s a sad comment on society that a world famous athlete can’t sit in a privileged position above a crowd of 100,000 people and a television audience of 100 million and be hand-fed tasty treats by an movie star without having someone take notice.

A-Rod is a simple, private man who never asked for any of this attention. We should all be ashamed of ourselves for our sickening and gratuitous voyeurism.

Corey Seager will be included on Dodgers’ World Series roster

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.
