NBA's Anti-Flopping Policy, AL MLB Scores, AL Wild Card Game, Miguel Carbrera's Triple Crown & NBA Quick Dribbles feat. Royce White: 10/4, Vol. 241, 1st Edition

You deserve the glory and the honor, I lift my hands in worship and I bless Your Holy name.  You are great, You do miracles, so great, there is no one else like You….there is no one else!  Good morning and welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema on Gospel Radio better than when you heard it yesterday! I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!  Let’s Get It Started!

Miguel Cabrera captures 1st
Triple Crown in 45 years
After 4,830 games, 161 games per team in Major League Baseball, we are down to the last 15 games of the regular season and the Hunt for October truly begins as I kick off the seven American League scores with the Texas Rangers losing steam at the end of the season as they were literally smacked upside the head by the Oakland A’s 12-5 as the A’s win the AL West, the LA Angels were SHUT  OUT and literally spanked by the Seattle Mariners 12-0 as Casper Wells homered and drove in 5 RBI’s, the Baltimore Orioles were stung by the Tampa Bay Rays 4-1 as Evan Longoria blasted not one, not two, but three homeruns, the Boston Red Sox were manhandled by the New York Yankees 14-2 with the 42nd and 43rd homers from Curtis Granderson as the Bronx Bombers clinched the AL East, while the Chicago White Sox SHUT OUT  and annihilated the Cleveland Indians 9-0 as Dan Johnson launched his 1st , 2nd and 3rd homeruns of the season, imagine that, the Minnesota Twins lost to the Toronto Blue Jays 2-1 as Brandon Morrow strikes out 11 batters and the Detroit Tigers SHUT OUT the Kansas City Royals 1-0 as the biggest highlight from the game was that Miguel Cabrera captured the Triple Crown, the first player in 45 years and 15th player period to do so, as he finished with an AL leading .330 average, 44 homers and 139 RBI’s.

The American League will have their AL Wild Card game on Friday as the Baltimore Orioles and the Texas Rangers will duke it out to see who will advance.

The NBA has adopted an
Anti Flopping Policy, but
will be challenge by the
Players Association
In sporting news, as training camps around the National Basketball Association are underway, those players who have flopped will have to adjust to an anti-flopping policy the league adopted yesterday.  The league stated that flopping has not place in their game will penalize those who are deemed to be floppers.  The penalties that players will incur are as follows:

•           Receive a warning the first time
•           Fined $5,000 for a second violation
•           Fines increase to $10,000 for a third offense
•           $15,000 for a fourth and $30,000 for the fifth flop
•           Six or more flops could lead to a suspension

With the news of the new policy, the Players Association will file a grievance with the NBA and also an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board as they state “The NBA is not permitted to unilaterally impose new economic discipline against the players without first bargaining with the union” as stated by NBPA executive director Billy Hunter.

For you NBA Quick Dribbles, the Houston Rockets Royce White was a no show for training camp citing his anxiety disorder over the fear of flying and stated in part “It has been determined that without a specific plan in place, the current workplace is not healthy for me” and one discussion on the table is for White to have a private bus that will take him to road games, video from the dashboard camera of a police car shows Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes directing a homophobic slur at a police officer during his arrest in late July and has since apologized, veteran forward Rasheed Wallace has officially come out of retirement and signed with the New York Knicks to a non-guaranteed contract for the veteran's minimum of $1.7 million and with his addition, the Knicks who are already one of the oldest teams in the league, got a little older, Dana Davis, vice president of basketball operations for the Memphis Grizzlies, has been found dead at the age of 56  in his apartment….may God rest his soul in peace, and finally, Tracy McGrady, one of the top NBA players of the past decade, is considering playing in China this season, if he is not picked up by a contending team, but if not, there is a still possibility he will not play in China, but is not ready to retire.

best ERA
Of the last 15 games of the regular season in Major League Baseball, the National League had eight of those games as the Houston Astros lost by one measly run to the Chicago Cubs 5-4 with a game winning single from Bryan LaHair and of course, the Astros set a franchise record for loses at 107, they may need a psychiatrist in the morning, the New York Mets got past the Miami Marlins 4-2 as Ike Davis belted his 32nd homer, the Colorado Rockies defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 as Jeff Francis wins his 1st game since July 27th, the San Francisco Giants were hammered by the LA Dodgers 5-1 as Clayton Kershaw finished with a major league leading 2.53 ERA, the San Diego Padres eked out the one run win against the Milwaukee Brewers 7-6 as Chase Hedley finishes the season with a league leading 115 RBI’s, while the Cincinnati Reds were SHUT OUT by the defending champs St. Louis Cardinals 1-0 with 7 K’s from Shelby Miller, the Atlanta Braves SHUT OUT and blasted the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-0, and the Philadelphia Phillies were crushed by the Washington Nationals 5-1 with the 25th homer from Ryan Zimmerman as the Nationals clinched home field advantage for the NL.
