I don’t have any use for Cancun Cruz. I would never throw a beer can at him. Cancun has certainly earned his POS status.

I won’t be paying this fella. See this from the Daily Beast:

Elon Musk has discussed putting all of Twitter behind a paywall as a new way for the company to make money as advertisers flee, according to a new report. Citing unnamed sources familiar with the conversations, Platformer claims Musk floated introducing a subscription fee for all users of the platform during meetings with his venture capitalist adviser David Sacks. One possibility allegedly discussed would be to allow everyone to use the site for a limited time before a subscription would be needed to continue browsing. News of the potential paywall comes after Musk slashed Twitter’s workforce and sparked a user backlash by introducing plans to charge $8 a month for blue-check verification on the site.

Oh, well.

One more feel-good story from the Chron about the World Series Champions:

Before the Astros popped the champagne inside their Minute Maid Park clubhouse after winning the World Series on Saturday night, Lance McCullers wanted to address his teammates.

As he was getting started, Astros manager Dusty Baker, who was standing behind him, reminded his pitcher to watch his elbow, since his Tommy John surgery-repaired elbow got banged up in the champagne celebration after the Astros swept the Mariners in the opening round of the playoffs.

“First, before I get a little rowdy. I don’t want anyone to take this for granted,” McCullers told his teammates while holding a giant bottle of champagne. “Runs like this, what we’ve been able to do in this clubhouse, it doesn’t come around very often. This is special.”

That’s when McCullers got to the rowdy part. He went through the Astros’ playoff run, referencing the Electric Factory, which is what Mariners fans call their T-Mobile Park. He also dropped “savages” into his speech, which is what Aaron Boone once called his Yankees hitter. Then, he got to the Phillies, who had termed their playoff run as “Red October” and use the rallying cry “Ring the bell.”

“When we started this f——- journey, they sent us out West, we f—— unplugged the Electric Factory,” McCullers yelled. “Then, they sent us up Northeast and we had to remind everyone who the real f——- savages are. Then, they sent us to Red October, left them in a pool of blood. Ring the f——- ball, because we’re the World Series champions.”

Nice. Don’t you think?

Let’s hope for the best this evening. A lot is on the line.
