The Cardinals have something special planned as the World Series shifts to Busch Stadium for Game 3 tonight. In addition to some franchise icons scheduled to be in attendance for the occasion, the team plans to show a tribute video to Stan “The Man” Musial, who passed away this past January at the age of 92.
Here’s hoping we get to see this on the FOX broadcast this evening.
Marc Carig of Newsday reports that the Mets have signed reliever Anthony Swarzak. It’s a two-year, $14 million deal, pending a physical.
Swarzak is an eight-year big league veteran who pitched for the White Sox and Brewers in 2017, posting a 2.33 ERA in 70 games. The righty struck out 10.6 batters per nine innings while walking 2.6. It was a really nice year and he’s a really nice pickup for the Mets, even if he is a fallback choice after they failed to sign Bryan Shaw.
