Well, Mookie. Let me tell you.

It was a strange time!  But perhaps the strangest thing about it all was that time pop singer Richard Marx filmed a video in which he led the Cubs to a World Series victory over the A’s by hitting a home run off Dennis Eckersley in the bottom of the ninth;

The Braves got a scare last night after first baseman Freddie Freeman was hit on the left wrist by a Hoby Milner fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was doubly scary given that, less than a year ago, the same wrist was fractured when Aaron Loup plunked him last year, causing Freeman to miss over a month and a half.

Good news, though: the Braves just announced that Freeman’s X-rays are negative and that he’s day-to-day.

On the season, Freeman is batting .288/.468/.492 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored in 79 plate appearances.
