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

13) Bad beats happen all over the world, even in Korea.

Sunday morning, Kia Tigers are visiting the NC Dinos; game is scoreless after six innings; Kia scores twice in the 7th, the Dinos once. Tigers score four in the top of the 9th, so they have a 6-1 lead heading into the bottom of the 9th. If you have Kia and the under, it is looking like a good start to your Sunday.

Dinos scored six runs in the bottom of the 9th, won 7-6; NC and the over cash. If you had Kia and the under, guess you just went back to bed.

12) Patrick Mahomes signed a 10-year deal with the Chiefs Monday, worth an estimated $450M, $140M of which is said to be guaranteed.

11) Major leagues have only six scheduled days off in their 66-day regular season; not sure if rainouts will create automatic doubleheaders.

10) Former Detroit/Boston GM Dave Dombrowski is joining a group in Nashville that is trying to bring major league baseball to Music City.

Lot of murmurs that MLB will try to recover some of the money it is losing this season by going with two expansion teams in a couple of years. Nashville, Portland, Montreal are three cities that would like to have a major league team.

9) Guy on a pit crew was changing tires during the NASCAR race Sunday, when there was an accident, and a car drilled the guy in the back while he was crouched down. Yikes.

The guy appeared to get out off of Pit Row on his own, but while  you hope the hell he is OK, it is hard to believe that he really is. Scary stuff.

8)  Most college football wins, since 2000:
219— Ohio State
218— Boise State
217— Oklahoma
202— Alabama
200— LSU

7) Kia Tigers’ SS SB Kim is leading the KBO in batting at .378, but he is going to miss a couple weeks, after straining his left quad, and spraining his right ankle over the weekend. Not often you see a guy hurt both legs at the same time.

6) Cumulative scores on the PGA Tour, since play started up again:
69-under par— Bryson De Chambeau
49-under— Viktor Hovland
47-under— Lucas Glover

5) Random NFL trends:
— Chicago Bears are 5-1 ATS in their last six non-Sunday games.
— Minnesota Vikings are 0-5-1 ATS in their last six non-Sunday games.

4) Another edition of Gambling is Difficult:

Pro golfer Matthew Wolff is 21; he won a tournament in Minnesota last year, finished 2nd in Detroit this week, banking $817,500, but in his seven PGA starts before this week, this is how he did:

Four missed cuts, and 54-52-58th place finishes.

There was zero evidence that he would do well in Detroit, but he did.

3) Players opting out of baseball this season:
David Price, Nick Markakis, Felix Hernandez

2) Players who have tested positive for COVID-19:
Freddie Freeman, Joey Gallo

1) Next two PGA Tour events are on the same golf course, Muirfield Village in Dublin OH; the Quad Cities Open cancelled this year, which is why they’re doubling up in Ohio.

TV highlight of the day: Baseball schedule being announced gives us a sense that there may actually be real baseball in 16 days.

I've been involved in sports my whole life, now just write about them. I like to travel, mostly to Las Vegas- they have gambling there.
