    TATS ENTERTAINMENT.
    A couple of friendly wagers between teammates on the outcome of the College World Series games turned ugly this weekend.  Jake Arrieta’s alma mater, the #TCU Horned Frogs, tangled
    with Tommy La Stella’s school, the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers who were victorious in a pair of games this week, ousting Arrieta’s former squad. As the loser, Arrieta will get a Coastal Carolina tattoo. TCU did take one game earlier in the week, meaning La Stella will have to dress up as TCU’s mascot, Super Frog.

    RIGHTING THE SHIP
    Arrieta takes the mound Monday in Cincinnati and is 4-2 with a 2.81 ERA in six career starts against the Reds. Including his no-hitter just over two months ago. Cincinnati, which has been outscored by Chicago 60-20 this season, ended a four-game losing streak with Sunday’s 3-0 home win against San Diego, and tries its luck in the opener with RHP Dan Straily, who got the start in the Reds’ only win over the Cubs in 2016 – a 13-5 rout two days after Arrieta’s no-hitter.

  3. Cardinals fly the WTF

    The plane that brought the Cardinals to Chicago Sunday for their series with the #Cubs then picked up LeBron James and the NBA Champion Cavaliers and flew them home to Cleveland. The St. Louis based aircraft apparently rubbed off on free agent JR Smith who emerged from the plane shirtless, drunk and unemployed.
