Just in time for Halloween, the Dodgers’ website has posted free, downloadable pumpkin-carving stencils, my favorite of which is this one featuring Vin Scully:
I also liked this note on the bottom of the page:
CARVING YOUR PUMPKIN
** Kids: Make sure a parent or adult is helping you with this activity! **
To carve your pumpkin, you can use a pumpkin carving kit from your local grocery store or you can use the following common household tools:
Pin or nail
I’d like to see some kid try to carve Scully’s face into a pumpkin with a spoon. It’ll end up looking like Tommy Lasorda.
Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna was arrested in Toronto back on May 8 on charges of assault against a woman and he has been on MLB’s administrative leave list ever since — that leave having been extended twice already.
Canadian authorities aren’t revealing any details about the case so as to protect the identity of the accuser and it’s unclear where MLB’s investigation into the matter stands at this point, but Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports opens his latest column with this note …
Toronto Blue Jays star closer Roberto Osuna’s domestic issue is said by people familiar with the case to be serious and involve allegations of a physical nature, which would draw a significant ban.
Heyman notes that Major League Baseball handed 15-game suspensions to Jeurys Familia and Steven Wright for domestic assault cases where there was no physical abuse — or none proven — and that Aroldis Chapman got 30 games after a police report revealed that he did get physical with the victim and also fired a gun.
It sounds like Osuna could be facing a suspension of at least 20-25 games, given the precedent. Again, though, we don’t have any actual details.
Tyler Clippard has been operating as Toronto’s primary ninth-inning man in Osuna’s absence.
