Quick hits from last night

I don’t have the get-up-and-go on a Sunday morning to do a full-blown “And That Happened,” but here’s a quick tour of last night’s action:

He’s worried! You cut him! You hurt him! You see? You see? He’s not a machine, he’s a man!

We’ve secretly replaced Boston’s regular, inefficient fourth starter with one who wastes fewer pitches.  Let’s see if they notice!

We’ve also replaced the late-00s version of Barry Zito with the early 00s version.  I think the Rockies certainly noticed.

I can’t wait for Plaschke to explain this one.

The Cubs take a 2-0 lead in the World Series of Pathetic, Expensive Underachieving teams.

Finally, if the Yankees actually start getting contributions from guys like Sergio Mitre, well, forget about it.

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
