If you ever considered proposing to your beloved on the scoreboard at a ballgame, well, I feel sorry for her. But if we were to imagine a world in which that was anything but tacky and annoying, Kanye just totally trumped you, dude:

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are engaged, reports E! Online. West popped the question at AT&T Park in San Francisco. The baseball stadium was rented out by West for the occasion.

I predict nothing but happiness for these two. Like other famous couples who came together at AT&T Park. Such as Jeff Kent and Barry Bonds. Or Buster Posey and Scott Cousins.

Javier Baez, D.J. LeMahieu have disagreement about sign-stealing

Fellow second basemen Javier Baez of the Cubs and D.J. LeMahieu of the Rockies got into a disagreement in the top of the third inning of Sunday’s game at Coors Field over sign-stealing.

LeMahieu reached on a fielder’s choice ground out, then advanced to second base on Charlie Blackmon‘s single. While Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story were batting, Baez was concerned that LeMahieu was relaying the Cubs’ signs to his teammates. Baez decided to stand in front of LeMahieu to block any information he might have been giving to Arenado and Story. LeMahieu got irritated and the two jawed at each other for a bit. Umpires Vic Carapazza and Greg Gibson had to intervene to tell Baez to knock it off.

There has always been a back-and-forth with alleged sign-stealing. As long as teams aren’t using technology to steal signs, it’s fair game for players to relay information to their teammates about the opposing team’s signs. Last year, MLB determined the Red Sox went against the rules and used technology — an Apple watch in this case — to steal signs from the Yankees. Other teams in the past have been accused of using binoculars from the bullpen to steal signs. In this particular case with Baez and LeMahieu, there was no foul play going on, just Baez trying to make the Rockies cede what he perceived to be their slight competitive advantage.

The Cubs went on to beat the Rockies 9-7 on Sunday.
