  • Geoff Decker awards ESPN's Keith Law with the prognostication award for picking four of the six division winners correctly. Mike Greenberg brings up the rear. Zing! Where I Stand.

  • Doug Glanville pens a letter to Padres rookie Will Venable. Letter gets misplaced and ends up published in major newspaper. News at 11. New York Times.

  • Some background on the Albuquerque Isotopes and the fellas who created the mascot name back in 1990 for the Simpsons. L.A. Daily News.

  • Vegas Watch interviews MGM Mirage's sportsbook guy and learns that the casino will lose their shirts if the Rays win it all. In other words, don't count on the Rays to win. Vegas Watch.

  • The New York Sun is folding. The entire organization, not just the actual newsprint on paper product they put out. All newspapers fold. Here's one last huzzah. New York Sun.

  • Nuns gone wild. If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger, There'd Be a Whole Lot of Copycats.

The NY Sun had a very good sports section. Better than the Daily News in my opinion. Too bad they couldn't compete with the Daily News, the Post and The Times.

Who picked the third place finishers the best?

Hmmm.... Maddon's glasses do look a lot like Moe Green's glasses...

You're clearly not familiar with the Nuns Having Fun series of books and calendars:

Seriously, my friend has that thing.

"And I got up in front of them. I felt an intoxication that had nothing to do with alcohol. It was the intoxication of being a public spectacle!"

Mesquite-grilled onions, jalapeƱo relish ... wait a minute, those are Southwestern ingredients! Mango-lime salsa? That's the kind of bold flavor they enjoy in ...Albuquerque!

Well, I'll be quirky.
