Beast mode? Antlers? A lot of teams develop little hand gesture things over the course of the season.  Emilio Bonifacio has one that seems to be catching on with the Marlins. Lo viste:

Lo Viste?  When Miami Marlins outfielder Emilio Bonifacio holds a sideways ‘V’ with his index and middle fingers to his eye he is asking that question. Lo viste? See that? Last season during his 26-game hitting streak, Bonifacio and teammate Omar Infante devised the Spanish catchphrase and hand gesture. The speedy Bonifacio began using it after a hit or a good play – and it took hold … This season, lo viste has caught on in a big way at Marlins spring training camp.

Below is a pic of Bonifacio doing that. And I don’t care what anyone says. Those new Marlins uniforms look pretty snazzy:

Things got a little wild in the fifth inning of Game 7 of the ALCS on Saturday. With one out and runners at the corners, Astros’ right-hander Charlie Morton fired a 1-1 fastball to Todd Frazier. Frazier returned the ball to third baseman Alex Bregman, who tossed a perfect throw over to Brian McCann at the plate just as Greg Bird came charging home. McCann’s setup was flawless, nailing Bird as he slid into the plate and nullifying the Yankees’ first real attempt to get on the board.

That’s as close as the Yankees have come to scoring so far. The Astros took an early 1-0 lead with Evan Gattis‘ 405-footer off of CC Sabathia in the top of the fourth inning. Jose Altuve chimed in with an opposite-field solo shot in the fifth, while McCann followed his lead-preserving tag with an equally jaw-dropping two-out, two-RBI double. Houston currently leads 4-0 in the bottom of the fifth.
