Brad Ausmus made a most unfortunate joke

I get it. Your team is in a serious funk and reporters are asking you why you’re not all upset about it. You want to make an over-the-top joke that demonstrates how you’re not overreacting, so you go with the sarcastic overreaction thing.

But really, Brad Ausmus, some thing you just don’t joke about:

Glad to see he immediately apologized. Would be even more glad if this turned into a nice moment in which Ausmus and/or the Tigers did something to help a domestic violence charity or something.

Corey Seager will be included on Dodgers’ World Series roster

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.
