On That’s Amaury’s News and Commentary:

#1 On sloppy field in sloppy weather on nationally televised Sunday Night Football the San Francisco 49ers (2-4) dropped their fourth straight game on their home field to the visiting Indianapolis Colts 30-18 in a game that wasn’t even close.

#2 Some blame 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. some blame quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Shanahan said when asked if he would switch quarterbacks for back up Trey Lance saying he’s got a whole team to study who will be in the starting line up for next Sunday in Chicago not just worrying about the quarterback situation. Shanahan turns out did say he was going to start Garoppolo this Sunday.

#3 The Houston Astros have been at this awhile and this time under the tutelage of manager Dusty Baker back for another World Series. Whether it was cheating teams in the past and clean play under Dusty this speaks to the ability of the Houston organization able to put together a successful team year after year.

#4 The Oakland A’s are looking at a big group of players who will become free agents at the conclusion of the World Series: outfielder Mark Canha, infielder Jed Lowrie, designated hitter Khris Davis, first baseman Mitch Mooreland, relievers Yusmeiro Petit, Trevor Rosenthal and Sergio Romo, also starter Mike Fiers. Trade deadline acquisitions Starling Marte, Yan Gomes, and Josh Harrison, pitcher Andrew Chafin has a $5.25 million option and reliever Jake Diekman has a $4 million option. Will the A’s work something out with these players?

#5 Amaury turning to ice hockey and the San Jose Sharks had a four game win streak going until they ran into the Boston Bruins on Sunday for their first loss of the season. They play the Nashville Predators tonight before returning home to San Jose on Thursday vs. Montreal and Saturday vs. Winnipeg.
