Did You Know?
- Can Kansas City reach the World Series for a second consecutive season or are the Blue Jays destined for a comeback? Game 6 of the American League Championship Series takes place tonight at Kauffman Stadium. Toronto are considered a -136 moneyline road underdog for tonight’s tilt in which KC holds a 3-2 series lead. David Price (who hasn’t earned a postseason W from a starting appearance in his entire career) is on the mound for the Jays while Kansas City counters with 24-year-old Yordano Ventura.
- Don Mattingly is done with the Dodgers. Los Angeles and their most recent skipper have agreed to split up following a Division Series defeat at the hands/gloves/bats of the Mets. Mattingly is the only manager that has led Los Angeles to three straight playoff appearances and enjoyed a 446–363 regular season record from 2011 to 2015. The Dodgers seemed to get to the playoffs with regularity in the Mattingly era, but an NLCS appearance in 2013 was as far as the club got. Mattingly is expected to get offers from a few of the open mangerial posts in Major League Baseball.
- Seattle has finally gotten their first road win of their 2015 NFL campaign. The Seahawks, favoured by a touchdown heading into their Thursday Night Football tilt, thrashed the 49ers 20-3 in San Francisco. Marshawn Lynch ran for 123 yards and a TD while Tyler Lockett caught 5 passes (including one for paydirt) as part of Seattle’s offensive onslaught. Both clubs trail 4-2 Arizona for top spot in the NFC South.
- The NFL is going to keep London in the picture until 2020. The league announced that they’ve extended their deal to play at Wembley Stadium through to the next decade with two regular season games per year the gameplan. The deal will also see Jacksonville continue to play one home game a year in England. Speaking of which, the Jags are a four point “home” underdog in Sunday’s London clash versus the 3-3 Buffalo Bills.
