College World Series 2017 scores and bracket: Oregon State chases LSU out of the park

Sunday saw the highest scoring game of this year’s College World Series, with Louisville shutting down Texas A&M, 8-4, and the lowest scoring game, with Florida outlasting TCU, 3-0. The early session on Monday saw Florida State eliminate Cal State Fullerton from Omaha, 6-4, while Oregon State thoroughly dismantled LSU, 13-1, in the nightcap to hand the Tigers their first loss. One more failure and they’re done.

The Phillies, Giants, Padres, et al, have other things to worry about, and they’re all trying to figure out what they’ll look like for 2018 and beyond. Colon won’t be there for those teams, regardless of how much we beg.

So if it wouldn’t make sense for Colon to go to a contender or a non-contender, where could he possibly land? There probably isn’t a spot, not unless he wants to hang out in Triple-A again.

It was just three weeks ago that the Braves gave out a Bartolo Colon bobblehead. And now, it looks like his career might be over. The only thing that makes me stop sort of definitively saying it is over is that Stage 3 was one of the most absurd, unlikely developments in recent memory, and it lasted approximately 30 times longer than anyone could have imagined.

We’ve all written Colon off before. Maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to do it again. From here, though, it looks like this might be the end of a very, very fun carnival ride. If so, we should probably be happy that it happened in the first place.

MLB players pushed back on holiday hat-sales cash grab

The Marlins have allocated all of $700,000 MLB paid the team as a result of Jose Fernandez’s death to a trust for the late Marlins pitcher’s 3-month old daughter and to his mother, The Miami Herald reported, citing unidentified industry sources.

MLB policy calls for $1 million to be paid out to a team when an active player dies, but Fernandez, who died Sept. 25 in a boating accident, was found to have traces of cocaine in his system and a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit at the time of the wreck, so MLB’s insurance company balked at paying the full amount.

The insurance company and MLB recently negotiated a $700,000 payout, according to The Herald, which was passed through the Marlins to a trust to pay for infant Penelope Fernandez’s education and to help take care of Maritza Fernandez, the pitcher’s mother.

Later Monday, at least four Tigers players ’ second baseman Andrew Romine, third baseman Nicholas Castellanos and pitchers Justin Verlander and Alex Wilson ’ made the subtle choice to display poppies on their Memorial Day-themed uniforms during Monday’s game in Kansas City.

The poppy as a symbol of remembering war dead dates to after World War I, and since then the flower has become the official memorial flower of the Veterans of Foreign Wars organization.

At least what UniWatch.com aptly called an ugly piece of apparel whose very existence is rooted in crass marketing, cheap emotional pandering, and bad civics conjured up a solution: More than one person has suggested instead of selling apparel, MLB teams instead donate to charities every dollar from ticket sales on apparel-worthy holidays.

That would 1) get more MLB money to worthy causes such as Welcome Back Veterans and 2) usher in a New Era of honoring a holiday and not merely hawking hats.
