Here's your wakeup call -- a combination of newsworthy and/or interesting tidbits -- for Friday, October 4

BASEBALL

  • The Dodgers won their playoff opener last night, moving us all one step closer to Magic Johnson in a Speedo. If that doesn't make you a Braves fan, nothing will. (Yahoo! Sports)

  • Yesterday's Game 1 start against the Cardinals may have been the swan song to his career -- it will be if the Pirates lose the series -- and A.J. Burnett didn't exactly ride triumphantly into the sunset, did he? (NBC's Hardball Talk)

  • I don't know, Tigers; so far this year, every team that's brought back one of the Biogenesis suspendees -- or, in A-Rod's case, potential suspendees -- has come to a bad end. (AP)

  • The disappointment of Wednesday's play-in loss to the Rays is fading, and the Indians are starting to look back with pride at what they accomplished in 2013. (AP)

  • Coming to a game in redface? Really? (Hardball Talk)

  • So. A career .229 hitter who missed the entire '13 season because of a torn ACL. How could Theo resist? (AP)
