#Rays Adames says he has Tatis JT’s locker in the home clubhouse. He spoke to Tatis yesterday and Adames told him that it would be “great” if he left behind some hits and homers.— Juan Toribio (@juanctoribio) October 4, 2020

The Central Divisions sent seven teams to the playoffs. Exactly zero advanced. In fact, they combined for only two wins.
This is nifty on how the remaining playoff teams were built.
In non-playoff news, Desmond Jennings got married.

Proverbs 18:22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord.. Well I found my good thing and it feels amazing. Words can’t even explain how beautiful you are. Im just so thankful the lord has blessed me with such a beautiful, smart, strong but most importantly a godly woman. This was by far the best day of my life.
Hall of Famer Bob Gibson passed over the weekend. This tweet relays my favorite story about him.
The last pitch Bob Gibson ever threw was hit for a grand slam by Pete LaCock. A decade later there was an Old-Timer’s game at Wrigley Field, and LaCock stepped up to the plate, and Gibson hit him. pic.twitter.com/mKQFsV6QnP— ShitBallPlayersSay (@baseballshit) October 4, 2020
Ron Perranowski also passed over the weekend.
