Cover me. Cmon baby, cover me.

The notion that we would try to cover for a powerful person is deeply offensive to all of us. Noah Oppenheim, president of NBC News is taking heat this week. His division is accused of giving a look-away pass to part-time powerful movie exec, part-time super-groper Harvey Weinstein.

The entertainment division is holding up its end of the bargain as well, with SNL avoiding the slobbering bully and opting instead for Alec Baldwin to Don the wig and bully his way through another skit. According to our Page Six, Alec was in a verbal confrontation for the umpteenth time. Sources said he called a presumably reckless motorist a Meatball and told him to get out of the car before the driver pulled away and saved him from an embarrassing situation. Life imitates art.

Never would have thought the Yankees would be here, in the AL Championship Series, but now that they are will they ride the emotional wave and steal Game 1 behind Masahiro Tanaka? Or will the Astros, the better team over 162 games, hold court behind Dallas Keuchel? Twenty units on New York.

Stitches for hire! Weve taken down two teams in the past two days. The Nats are going home after the Cubs eliminated them 9-8. A night full of ineffective pitchers saw Max Scherzer yield four runs, two earned, in one inning. The home team Nationals made two critical errors and the Cubs held on. The loss puts us at -832 brokaws.
