    Tuesday’s 6-pack
    Worst records in the major leagues:

    20-47— Arizona
    22-43— Baltimore
    23-42— Pittsburgh
    26-40— Minnesota
    26-41— Colorado
    25-41— Texas

    Quote of the Day
    “I definitely see it as Jimmy’s (Garoppolo) the starter. But if Trey’s ready to compete, I have no problem with it. I don’t sit there and say, ‘Hey, we’re not playing a rookie quarterback. We have to rest him the first year.’ … I don’t really make any decisions like that until I actually have an opinion on it. And that’ll take to how I see him in camp. If he comes in and he’s playing at a high level and we think he gives us the best chance to win, we wouldn’t hesitate to do that.”
    49ers coach Kyle Shanahan

    Tuesday’s quiz
    Jim Mora Sr coached the Saints/Colts in the NFL, but what team did he lead to two USFL championships?

    Monday’s quiz
    Marv Levy went 123-78 as coach of the Buffalo Bills, winning four AFC titles; he went 31-42 as coach of the Chiefs, from 1978-82.

    Sunday’s quiz
    In the movie Dave, where Kevin Kline plays the US President, Ben Kingsley played the Vice-President.

    *****************************************

    Tuesday’s Den: Nobody asked me, but……..

    13) An infielder in Korean pro baseball scratched the cornea in his eye last week, when he rubbed sweat out of his eye, only did it too vigorously.

    I meant to mention this last year, after my cataract surgery; the surgeon had mentioned to me to be careful when washing around the eyes— you can do damage to a delicate area.

    12) If I was a big league ballplayer and they told me they traded me, the first thing I’d want to know, other than where I was going, is who did you get for me?

    11) Giants 5, Diamondbacks 2— Arizona has now lost 20 in a row on the road.

    10) A’s 8, Angels 5:
    — Mitch Moreland got his 1,000th career hit in this game.
    — Mark Canha is 9th Oakland player ever to play LF-CF-RF, all in the same game.

    9) Hawks 103, 76ers 100:
    — Atlanta wins after trailing by 18 at one point; series is 2-2.
    — Joel Embiid went 4-20 from floor, 0-12 in 2nd half. He is playing with torn meniscus in his knee.

    8) Clippers 118, Utah 104:
    — LA led 30-13 after first quarter, never looked back.
    — Home side won all four series games.
    — Utah’s subs shot a combined 4-20 from the floor.

    7) Do young actors get starstruck when they do scenes with really famous actors?

    I’m thinking of one of the last scenes in Last Vegas; the young concierge is saying goodbye to the four older dudes he helped out during the movie, but not just any older dudes:

    Robert DeNiro, Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, Kevin Kline.

    Has to be the young guy’s career highlight, right?

    6) Red Sox 2, Blue Jays 1— Toronto won 18-4 Sunday, then trailed 1-0 here with two outs in 9th, when Vladimir Guerrero tied the game with a dramatic homer. Rafael Devers walked it off in bottom of the 9th by hitting a ball off the Green Monster.

    Coming into this game, Red Sox starting pitchers had allowed 40 runs in their previous 39 IP, so this had to be a relief for them.

    5) Baseball injuries:
    — Cleveland P Shane Bieber (shoulder)
    — Royals OF Andrew Benitendi (ribs)
    — Rays P Tyler Glasnow (elbow)

    4) A’s manager Bob Melvin got his 1,300th career win over the weekend, making him the 35th big league skipper to hit that milestone.

    3) There is going to be a new NHL team in Seattle next fall; the expansion draft is next month, which should be interesting.

    — How hard will the new team try to win quickly?
    — Which players will be left unprotected?
    — When is Seattle getting a new NBA team?

    2) There is apparently a chicken wing shortage in Buffalo, which has raised prices.

    “This time last year, an order of 20 from us came to $25 even [after tax]; right now it’s $31.53” s restaurant manager told the New York Post.

    — Back in 2018, an oversupply in chicken wing production forced the process to slow.
    — During the pandemic last year, a shortage of workers and bursting demand for takeout worsened the crunch.
    — The big winter storm in Texas in February made supply-chain matters worse when farmers had to euthanize hundreds of thousands of chicks and destroy hundreds of thousands of eggs.

    So far, no one is suggesting that fowl play is involved.

    1) RIP to the great actor Ned Beatty, who passed away over the weekend, at age 83. One of our best character actors, Beatty has 228 movie credits, including Network, Superman, Deliverance and He Got Game. He was even a judge in Law & Order once. RIP, sir.

    8-1— Arizona, Mississippi State, Stanford

    Quote of the Day
    “There’s no quit. We always talk about playing a 48-minute game. It’s a long game. And it took all 48 minutes tonight to get it done.”
    Atlanta Hawks’ coach Nate McMillan

    Thursday’s quiz
    Where did Nate McMillan play his college basketball?
    (Hint: That school is in the College World Series)

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Orel Hershiser pitched for the Dodgers for 12 years, then played for three other teams, before finishing his career back with the Dodgers in 2000.

    Tuesday’s quiz
    Jim Mora Sr coached the Saints/Colts in the NFL; he led the Philadelphia/Baltimore Stars to two USFL championships.

    *******************************************

    Thursday’s Den: Doing some thinking out loud……..

    13) Robert Griffin III hasn’t retired as an NFL player yet, but if he does, TV networks will be scrapping for his services as an analyst.

    Apparently, RG3’s TV auditions went so well that FOX/ESPN will be bidding for his services as soon as he puts his retirement papers in.

    Griffin was the 2nd player taken in the 2012 Draft; he went 9-6 in his rookie year as a QB with Washington, but has gone 7-20 since then, drifting to Cleveland, then Baltimore.

    12) Hawks 109, 76ers 106:
    — Atlanta trailed by 24 with 2:10 left in third quarter.
    — Hawks scored 54 points on their first 66 possessions.
    — Hawks scored 55 points on their last 31 possessions.
    — Atlanta leads series, 3-2.

    11) Over the last 25 years, 76ers are ONLY TEAM to blow a lead of 18+ points in consecutive playoff games.

    10) Clippers 119, Jazz 111— Clippers grab 3-2 series lead despite Kawhi Leonard missing this game with a leg injury. LA leads this series 3-2.

    9) Red Sox 10, Braves 8:
    — Arroyo hit a pinch-hit grand slam in the 7th inning.
    — Atlanta has four losses this year when they scored 8+ runs; in the last three years combined, they lost a total of five such games.

    8) Giants 13, Diamondbacks 7:
    — Arizona has lost 13 in row, 26 of its last 28 games.
    — Arizona lost its last 22 road games.

    7) Alex, I’d like Strange Scheduling for $100— Mets’ last four games before the All-Star break are against Pittsburgh; their first three games after All-Star break are also against the Pirates, so the teams will play seven consecutive games against each other, which is odd.

    6) Twins 7, Mariners 2— Coming into this game, Minnesota’s Williams Astudillo had batted 116 games this season, without drawing a walk. His first two at-bats in this game, he walked both times.

    5) Astros 8, Rangers 4— Jose Altuve is first player EVER to hit a walk-off grand slam, then lead off the first inning of the next game with another home run.

    4) Pretty good 4-team basketball tournament down in Florida in November: Yale, Bowling Green, Southern Utah and Western Michigan.

    3) Phoenix Suns’ guard Chris Paul is in COVID protocol, is out indefinitely.

    2) Sounds the Jets are committing to starting rookie QB Zach Wilson in Week 1, when they play Carolina and the Panthers’ new QB, Sam Darnold. Should be good theater.

    1) I’m not 100% sure this is true, but if it isn’t, it should be:

    — Chess is the most popular game in Czecholslovakia
    — There is a dating service in Prague that caters primarily to chess players.
    — The dating service is called Czech Mate.

    **************************************************

    Friday’s Den: Random stuff with the weekend here……..

    13) Bet you can remember where you were 27 years ago tonight; 27 years ago tonight was the OJ Simpson car chase, captured live and in color by every network in America, except the one that had an NBA Finals game on (Knicks-Houston).

    A white Ford Bronco driving along the freeways of Los Angeles, trailed by a parade of police cars, being cheered by onlookers. People cheering for a retired football star suspected of murder. What a weird night; think I saw three minutes of the basketball game, and I love basketball.

    12) If someone had asked me this trivia question today, I’d have sat here for hours before getting the right answer. Who is the only major league ballplayer, who in each of the last five years, including this one, hit 15+ home runs?

    I’ll give you a few minutes to think about it and post the answer at the end of today’s Den.

    11) Bucks 104, Nets 89:
    — Series is tied 3-3.
    — Giannis/Middleton combined for 68 points.
    — Durant scored 32 points, other four starters scored 42.

    10) Padres 6, Reds 4:
    — If you bet the under in this game, skip to the next paragraph.
    — Padres led 2-0 after eight innings; both teams scored 4 runs in the ninth.
    — Victor Caratini walked it off with a homer for San Diego.

    9) Dallas Mavericks won the NBA title ten years ago, but haven’t won a playoff series since; this week, they fired GM Donnie Nelson, after 16 years as the head of the Dallas front office. Not sure which one of these two happened first, but coach Rick Carlisle is out after 13 years as the coach of the Mavericks.

    Dallas employs a guy named Haralobos Voulgaris as director of quantitative research and development; he used to be a professional gambler. Apparently Voulgaris won a power struggle with Nelson/Carlisle for owner Mark Cuban’s ear, so now the franchise takes a new direction.

    8) Quick baseball notes:
    — San Diego Padres are 0-8 in Blake Snell’s road starts.
    — Oakland A’s are 7-0 in Chris Bassitt’s road starts.
    — New York Mets are 6-0 in Taijuan Walker’s home starts.

    7) Giants 10, Arizona 3— Diamondbacks set a new record, losing their 23rd straight road game; their last road win was April 25, when Madison Bumgarner threw his 7-inning no-hitter.

    Indians 10, Orioles 3— Baltimore has lost its last 19 road games. When the amateur draft happens next month, Orioles better be drafting a lot of pitchers.

    6) Mariners 6, Rays 5— Seattle scored twice in 9th, walking it off on a Kyle Seager single. Rays are 0-3 since Tyler Glasnow hurt his arm.

    5) I still have no idea why the Rams made the blockbuster deal with Detroit to get QB Matthew Stafford, but there is this:
    — In Sean McVay’s first two years coaching LA, the Rams were +18 in turnovers.
    — Last two years, Rams were minus-3 in turnovers.

    4) Baltimore Ravens’ QB Lamar Jackson ran the ball for 1,005 yards LY, 200 yards more than any of his teammates.

    3) Richmond Spiders are going to have a very experienced basketball team next winter, with two 5th-year seniors, and two 6th-year seniors starting. Remember, everyone who played college LY can come back and play this year. That’ll be a big thing to keep track of.

    2) It has taken me a while to get used to 7-inning doubleheaders, and its going to take time for me to get used to a 17-game NFL regular season. The 16-game season started in 1978, when I was in college. Regular season doesn’t end this year until January 9th.

    Answer to the really hard quiz: Cleveland SS Jose Ramirez is the only major league ballplayer, who in each of the last five years, including this one, has hit 15+ home runs.

    1) If the playoffs started today (they don’t):
    NL— Mets, Cubs, Giants. Wild Card: Milwaukee @ Dodgers
    AL— Rays, White Sox, A’s. Wild Card: Houston @ Boston
