David Ortiz in a Yankee Jacket?

If you haven't been watching FS1's postseason baseball coverage you have been missing out. Alex Rodriguez and David Ortiz have highlighted their pregame and post-game coverage and it has been great to watch. AROD has been displaying his ring from 2009 while Big Papi has grinned when talking about his THREE rings. Last night though AROD played a prank on his former nemesis by slipping a Yankee jacket on Ortiz without him knowing. Have a look:

This makes me think of my all time favorite ESPN commercial when Wally catches Ortiz in a Yankee hat:

Did the Red Sox Unofficially Hire Alex Cora Last Night?

Not long after the Astros imploded to the Yankees in Yankee Stadum in Game 4 of the ALCS, Alex Cora tweeted this out:
The Red Sox interviewed Cora for their open managerial job on Monday and has been rumored to be the Red Sox #1 target. Did Dave Dombrowski offer him the job last night? Obviously there are many things that could make Alex Cora feel blessed but getting the opportunity to be the next Red Sox manager has to be right up there.
