Holy hell Garrett Crochet is nasty. Drafted in June. Now sitting 100 left-handed with his fastball, dropping 93-mph changeups and flinging 86-mph sliders to show off. He'll be a weapon for the White Sox this October and should be a big part of the reason if they make a deep run.

ahem

The @MLB_PLAYERS sent out Players Choice Awards ballots to players today. Votes are for Outstanding Player, Pitcher and Rookie as well as Comeback Player in their own league, plus Player of the Year and Marvin Miller Man of the Year across the sport. Winners announced this fall.

column: we can do a lot more than just play on the field when it comes to baseball. putting money behind those people, too, makes the sport better https://t.co/ccyPCWOYEP

Between the breakdown of what MLB and the MLBPA's donation of $10 million to the Players Alliance really means and the celebration of the life of Charles Peterson, the Cardinals scout who died after battling COVID-19, this @clintonyates piece is worth your time. https://t.co/JDKDzIWuiS

Correction from earlier: While there was supposed to be a 13-pitcher maximum on postseason rosters this year, MLB amended it in the wake of the pandemic. There is no maximum number of pitchers a team can roster in these playoffs. Story updated to reflect: https://t.co/4261kv6YGF

The player with the most FanGraphs Wins Above Replacement in all of baseball for the 2020 season? Cleveland's Jose Ramirez. Is he suddenly the American League MVP favorite? At very least he's in the conversation with Jose Abreu and Tim Anderson: https://t.co/4261kv6YGF

I think his Wins Above Replacement should be higher. Sincerely, His replacement. https://t.co/LPUocI2fx1

Some news in 20 Questions: The 2021 draft order is highly likely to be based on a team's 2020 record, a source familiar with MLB's thinking told ESPN: https://t.co/4261kv6YGF If the season ended today, top 5 would be: 1) Pittsburgh 2) Texas 3) Boston 4) Arizona 5) Washington

Playoff races! Award battles! Unnecessary exclamation points! The last week of the MLB season is here, and 20 Questions tackles the postseason, MVPs, CYs, draft order, who’s in trouble, playoff format, sneaky-good guys and who I’ll miss seeing in October: https://t.co/4261kv6YGF

RIP Gary Hughes. Arguably the greatest baseball scout ever. The sweetest, dearest, most generous guy. My heart is broken. I loved how he listened & never treated anyone badly. His legacy will be that--a good friend first & foremost. It's the best legacy anyone can leave.

@Mooose_8 Even cooler: They were kind enough to facilitate a donation to @dailyorange, which exists thanks to the support of people who understand the importance of student journalism. I'm not doing what I do without The DO. Every bit of support helps sustain it. https://t.co/lDAJJNYkVT

So Topps Allen & Ginter made a baseball card of me ... sending a tweet. I signed a few cards. Others have a swatch of fabric from the suit I was wearing when @Mooose_8 beer-showered me in a playoff celebration. The set is super cool and you absolutely should grab a pack or two. https://t.co/4lufLxehJl

BAM

While no plan is set in stone, the Phoenix area has emerged as the primary backup option if MLB needs to move any of its postseason games on account of air-quality problems, sources told ESPN.

With the awful air quality in Seattle postponing tonight's game between the Mariners and Giants, the question of how the West Coast fires will affect MLB down the stretch is very real, particularly with the ALDS and ALCS scheduled in California.

I’m all for mutual respect, but the unwritten rules brigade remain undefeated at picking a stupid place to draw the line. They seem to always support saving the feelings of the (well-compensated, professional) loser in battle over the joy of the (usually young, excited) victor.

"I know that my sadness will keep me company & sometimes hold me down & sometimes propel me forward & sometimes force me sit in the quiet & feel all of it. It will be there, and I will be grateful for it, because it will be how I know that I lived." https://t.co/Hj72N8h00c

If the playoffs were to begin today -- and they start 16 days from now, so we're awfully close -- the Chicago White Sox would be the No. 1 seed in the American League.
