Yadier Molina: Mondays are chest days!

Yadi got a close one near his knees and dropped to the dirt. So what does a great Major Leaguer that Yadi is, do?

He drops down and gives us several pushups.

I mean it is indeed Monday which means it's chest day!
After dropping down and giving some pushups, Molina did Molina things right afterwards.

He hit a single towards left.

I guess that was the trick and he should maybe work on his upper body strength in the batter's box every time!

Joe Maddon wins Manager of the Year
Not that this is terribly surprising, but it's newsworthy all the same: Joe Maddon is the National League's Manager of the Year. The Cubs went 97-65 this season, a year after going just 73-89. They made the playoffs via the Wild Card and progressed to the NLCS, where they were eventually swept by the Mets in four games. Maddon's presence with the team certainly went a long, long way to turning things around for one of the league's most troubled franchises. It's not all about Maddon, though - this Cubs team was nothing like the 2014 edition. The emergence of young future (and even present) superstars like Kris Bryant and Kyle Schwarber turned this team on its head. The youngsters, combined with amazing seasons by Anthony Rizzo and pitcher Jake Arrieta made the Cubs one of the most feared teams in the National League. Many had them picked to win the World Series before they ran into the piping-hot Mets in the NLCS. They met an unstoppable force and couldn't pull it off, but had a great season nonetheless. In a somewhat surprising move, the Mets' Terry Collins finished third in Manager of the Year voting behind Maddon and Mike Matheny of the Cardinals. Sure, the Cardinals finished with the best record in baseball, but if you ask me, what Collins did as manager was more impressive than Matheny's work. The Mets' head honcho took a minor league roster and guided them through a brutal first half of the season before picking up some huge mid-season acquisitions and turning on the style late in the season, reaching the World Series before falling to the Royals. Sure, none of this actually matters, and I think most people pretty much agreed that Maddon would win Manager of the Year. Many probably picked Collins to finish second ahead of Matheny, but that's just making an argument for no reason. So, there we have it baseball fans: Maddon, Matheny, Collins. Is this the right order? Would you have given the award to someone else? @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @SamuelRodriguez @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Link4TW @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @DerekGumtow @Straightshooter @Kirooken @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @ChristopherKenn @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @addri @GinnaL13 @VeronicaArtino @TomasVasquez
Here's the full MLB playoff schedule
It's playoff time! Who's excited? I know I am - and I bet my fellow baseball fans are too! @mchlyang @christianmordi @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl !! Let's take a look at the Wild Card and NLDS schedule. It all gets started this Tuesday at 8PM ET as Houston travels to the Bronx to face the Yankees. The Yankees could have a tough time with the AL Cy Young frontrunner and 20-game winner, but it should be an intense game one way or the other. Win or go home! In the NL Wild Card, the Cubs face the Pirates in Pittsburgh at 8PM ET on Wednesday. This game also features a likely Cy Young winner, as Jake Arrieta will look to continue his masterful second half and knock out the Cubs' division rivals. After those Wild Card games are settled, we enter into the Division Series. Each series is a 5-game set, with the team with home field advantage playing host in games 1, 2, and 5. Both sets in the National league follow the same schedule of games. New York Mets vs. Los Angeles Dodgers St. Louis Cardinals vs. [winner of Pittsburgh vs. Chicago] Game 1 - Friday [@ LA/St. Louis] Game 2 - Saturday [@ LA/St. Louis] Game 3 - Monday [@ NY/Pittsburgh or Chicago] Game 4 - Tuesday [@ NY/Pittsburgh or Chicago] Game 5 - Thursday [@ LA/St. Louis] There's lots of intrigue in the American League, too.

Series preview: St. Louis Cardinals vs. Chicago Cubs
Here's a preview of the final NLDS Series, this one a Midwest showdown between the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals. Let's take a look. St. Louis Cardinals Season record: 100-62 Home record: 55-26 Away record: 45-36 Key players: Michael Wacha (SP), Matt Carpenter (3B), Jhonny Peralta (SS), Jason Heyward (RF) Key injuries: Carlos Martinez (SP), Yadier Molina (C) Projected starters: John Lackey, Jaime Garcia, Wacha, Lance Lynn, Lackey Here's what you need to know: The Cardinals are a team that seems to be engineered for October baseball year after year. They just do not stop. While the team has suffered countless injuries this season - including recent ones to huge players like their ace Martinez and captain Molina - you can never count them out. Rookie Steven Piscotty seems to get big hit after big hit and the Cards are just never out of it. They also have probably the best home crowd in the league and are tough to beat in St. Louis. Chicago Cubs Season record: 97-65 Home record: 49-32 Away record: 48-33 Key players: Jake Arrieta (SP), Kyle Schwarber (RF), Kris Bryant (3B), Anthony Rizzo (1B) Key injuries: None Projected starters: John Lester, Kyle Hendricks, Arrieta, Lester, Arrieta Here's what you need to know: Is this finally the year for the Cubs? Back to the Future II projected them to finally win it all in 2015 and it looks within the realm of possibility. After beating the Pirates in a heated Wild Card game, the Cubs have more momentum than any team in the league. Arrieta is on an absolutely wild run and should win NL Cy Young - he has been the best player in baseball over the past three months. Rookies Schwarber and Bryant are hitting the snot out of the ball. Watch out for these Cubbies. My projection: While the Cardinals were the best team in the league all year, in the playoffs it's all about pitching and momentum. The Cubs have the league's best pitcher and loads of momentum. While the Cardinals may be a grittier team with more experience, I think the Cubs are just better at this point. I'm taking the Cubs in 5 as an upset.

MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/20/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Matt Duffy (San Francisco Giants) A ground ball hit slowly on the third baseline wasn't going to stop Matt Duffy make this amazing play! He made the throw across his body and retired Nick Ahmed to end the inning. The ball looked like it was going to be an infield hit but Duffy made this exceptional play and let the Giants to a 5-1 win over the Diamondbacks. 4. Chase Utley (Los Angeles Dodgers) The ball was shot up the middle but Chase Utley smothered the ball and made a perfect throw on one knee to first to get the out! The 36 year-old veteran has shown strong defense throughout his entire career and this was just one more play that he added to his repertoire. The Dodgers however fell to the Pirates 4-3. 3. David Murphy (Los Angeles Angels) A strong line drive was hit to left field but David Murphy wasn't going to allow any hits. Murphy chased the ball, lunged for it, and made a beautiful diving catch to end the inning. HIs team however fell to the hot Twins 8-1. 2. Eugenio Suarez (Cincinnati Reds) Eugenio Suarez backhanded that ball and it was a long throw to first. It seemed like a very close call but the first base umpire first ruled the play safe. Reds manager Bryan Price however wasn't going to let it go without a challenge. And after a video review, the decision was overturned and his amazing play even got better with that out. It's always so tough to get a lot out of a throw like that but he made it into a perfect play. The Reds however lost 8-4 against the Milwaukee Brewers. 1. Jason Heyward (St. Louis Cardinals) It was a fly ball lifted into right field. Heyward however wasn't going to be satisfied with just one out. He throws a laser beam to home plate and gets it in time for two outs. He got into a perfect throwing position, it was a perfect throw, and he wowed everyone with a double play. And the Cardinals who are the number one ranked team in the MLB, beat the Chicago Cubs, the third best team in the MLB 4-3. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games! What was your favorite play of the day? @christianmordi @jeff4122 @ljk901023 @TessStevens @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 *If you guys would like to be tagged every time I upload a Top 5 Plays of the Day card, please let me know by commenting on the comments section below!
MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/13/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Jason Heyward (St. Louis Cardinals) The Cardinals' nightmare has finally come to an end. Cards' defense was exceptional today with Yadier Molina throwing out NL basestealing leader Billy Hamilton. But the MVP goes to Heyward for snagging Ivan De Jesus Jr.'s home run especially when the game was still in doubt. Heyward learned his lesson on Saturday when Adam Duvall's two run homer bounced off the top of the wall. The Cardinals beat the Reds 9-2. 4. Khris Davis (Milwaukee Brewers) If only the Brewers have won, this guy would have been the Man of the Match. Khris Davis robbed a homer from Francisco Cervelli and kept his team going. He not only robbed that homer, he blasted a two-run homer the next inning to keep the Brewers alive. Despite an amazing performance both defensively and offensivley by Davis, the Brewers lose to the Pirates 7-6 in the 11th inning. 3. Brian Bogusevic (Philadelphia Phillies) The Phillies' right fielder, Brian Bogusevic, and his fully extended diving catch robbed Dexter Fowler's potential double. You could see starting pitcher, Aaron Harang, show his appreciation with an air-five! With Bogusevic's amazing play, the Chicago Cubs lost to the Phillies (the worst team in the MLB) 7-4. 2. Lonnie Chisenhall (Cleveland Indians) The Indians' Right Fielder made this impressive play in deep right field. It was an all out diving effort all the way to the warning track and stole a possible double, or even a triple away from Rajai Davis. Despite Justin Verlander starting for the Tigers' mound, Detroit lost to the Tribe 7-2. 1. Brandon Barnes (Colorado Rockies) And the number one play from last night's games come from Brandon Barnes of the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies' left fielder not only made a phenomenal play, he made that play into a double play. This was the game-winner for the Rockies as they topped the Seattle Mariners 3-2. Barnes said he felt a bit dizzy after he slammed his head into the ground but he kept his focus to sling the ball to first and throw out Ketel Marte. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games! What was your favorite play of the day? @christianmordi @jeff4122 @ljk901023 *If you guys would like to be tagged every time I upload a Top 5 Plays of the Day card, please let me know by commenting on the comments section below!

The Woman Who Struck Out Babe Ruth
And Lou Gehrig too. On April 2, 1931 the seventeen year-old Jackie Mitchell struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig back-to-back. They were arguably the deadliest hitting duo in baseball history, and she did it in only seven pitches. Which is pretty damn impressive. Less impressive is what happened afterwards. "They are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day." Ruth wasn't the most gracious in defeat (via), and some historians have dismissed the exhibition game as an April Fool's Prank. It's unlikely that Ruth would have been visibly upset if he struck out on purpose, nor would he have asked the umpire to inspect the ball. And a few days later, Mitchell's contract was voided on the basis that baseball was "too strenuous" for women. Yeah, beating some of the most famous players of all time sounds really strenuous. What if she broke a nail?! /sarcasm She kept playing anyway. So clearly the game wasn't TOO strenuous (she died in 1987 at the age of 74). She joined the amateur team House of David in 1933, and retired in 1937. Meanwhile, women weren't formally banned from the MLB until 1952, though unofficially they were often kept off the field. Such was the case for Eleanor Engle, who never took the field. The President of the minor leagues stated that no contract with a woman would be approved because “not in the best interest of baseball that such travesties be tolerated.” In the 1970s girls were allowed to join Little League, in the 80s women joined college baseball, and in the 1990s, Ila Borders joined the St. Paul Saints of the independent Northern League. But no female player has reached the majors (yet). But the 100-year anniversary of the time a teenage girl struck out some of the toughest hitters in baseball history. Maybe it'll happen again in 2031?

Football Betting Tips & Tricks
Sports betting has probably existed since the beginning of the first organized sporting events. Gladiator fights, chariot races, and the early Olympic Games have been the subject of sports betting since ancient times. However, no one knows for sure how deep the historical roots of sports betting really go. Unsurprisingly, today king football is number one in Europe in terms of sports betting. But how do sports betting actually work? The market for online soccer betting, which has exploded in recent years, has cemented this situation even further. If you want to get started now but have little or no idea about football betting, this is the place for you. But also somewhat more experienced contemporaries could well elicit one or the other hitherto ignored note from this text. When did football betting begin? Judging by the fact that football as an organized grassroots sport gained a foothold at the end of the 19th / beginning of the 20th century and rapidly gained in popularity, the first (at least official ...) football bets were well over the course of two decades to come. Only starting from 1921 for the first time in England official football bets were offered. These operated under the name "Toto" and served mainly to finance organized football. With a similar objective and under the same name, Toto was then implemented in Germany after the Second World War. From then on football bets conquered the sports betting market and gradually outpaced the formerly more popular horse racing bets. Unsurprisingly, the popularity of football betting today is analogous to the popularity of the sport itself. Everything about quotas The betting odds given by a bookie tell you how much he will pay for a bet you have made if you bet on that event or outcome. Quotas reflect the chances of victory that a bookmaker gives a team in terms of calculations or which outcome of the game he considers likely. This is then set in relation to each other and the resulting betting odds. However, that is only half the truth. If a bookmaker were content to simply offer the maximum objective odds and thus to anticipate the outcome correctly as often as possible, then he would not be doing his job. To lie correctly is the goal of us as players. The bookmaker, however, wants one thing above all: make a profit! Quotas are often adjusted for this purpose. For example, favorites are deliberately overrated by bookmakers, which means lower odds for their wins. Bookmakers do this very deliberately. Because the majority of players tend to bet on favorite wins and because favorites naturally win more often than outsiders, bookmakers would give away money if they gave objective favorites to the favorites every time. Another factor influences bookmaker odds. The competition among themselves. Especially in times of online football betting and numerous online bookmakers, the competition is very large and odds comparisons are from the perspective of the players only a small finger exercise away. Of course, this has clearly intensified the competitive situation. And so bookmakers often adjust the quotas they offer; simply to make their own bets more attractive. How are the odds displayed and how do sports betting work? Through the Internet, you can easily register with bookmakers beyond the continental European market. However, the odds are sometimes different in these. Even those who want to use a holiday in Vegas "athletic" will run there, a different representation of quotas, and thus a different reading style, on the way. Below are the three most common representations of betting odds. Decimal / continental Europe Of all the quota types, the decimal quotas we know are the easiest to understand. These are represented as decimal numbers with two decimal places (for example, 1.70 - 2.00 - 3.45, etc.). The stated odds always represent the factor by which your own stake is multiplied. So if you bet 10 Euro on an event with a 2.0 win quota, you will receive 20 Euro (minus the fees that the bookmaker keeps). However, factor 2.0 shows the total (!) Payment amount. It is therefore not a net profit of 20 euros but 10 euros profit plus the 10 euros use since the 2.00 are to be understood as a multiplier. If the odds were only 1.00 (which, of course, never happened), you would not win anything but just get your bet back. It is, therefore, a so-called gross quota. This finding is important because it behaves differently in the other two odds models. Odds / United Kingdom As the mother country of football betting, the United Kingdom has a very large market. However, the odds are somewhat different on the islands. First of all, they show the net profit. So the net profit, which one makes in a successful bet. Of course, you also get paid his stake again. However, this is not considered a profit in the sense of the British odds and is therefore ignored in the representation of the odds. The British odds are always presented in simple fractions. For example 5/3. The number in front of the dash (5) represents the profit distributed in the event of success. The number behind the dash describes the amount required (3) to achieve the reported profit (5). Of course, that does not mean you can only bet three pounds. The British odds simply represent the ratio of net profit to stake in a very simplified way. British odds are easily converted into our decimal system. Quote 5/3 5: 3 = 1.67 + 1.00 (to take into account the stake included and thus determine the gross profit) = 2.67 By the way: A 2.00 bet, as in our example for the continental European decimal odds, would typically not be shown in the UK as 2/1 but as even money or just even. The term even money is also used in the American system. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kdk6prcpUKI
