Because there’s nothing better than taking a cool idea — Sausage Races — and beating it into the ground so thoroughly that you want to scream and then cry, the Miami Marlins are now doing it too. With these … things:
I’m not going to go into details, but the only time I ever saw a scene comparable to this one, I was sitting in a beanbag chair in a college dorm room, believing I could taste the music I was listening to.
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.
