Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Sunday that will prevent environmental complaints from significantly stalling the construction of a new ballpark for the Oakland A’s should they choose to build at an industrial waterfront spot.With AB734, legal challenges to the project must be resolved within 270 days. In return, the A’s have promised to adhere to a host of environmental measures, including traffic mitigation and green building standards.

Adrian Beltre and Felix Hernandez have seen a lot of each other over their careers. They were teammates on the Mariners from 2005-09 and they have played in the same division since 2011. Every time they face off on the baseball field, they clearly enjoy the moment.

During Sunday’s Rangers-Mariners game, the two were at it again. After Beltre was out at first base on a double play, he took a detour on the way to his own dugout to give his old buddy a hug. He’s even happy to see his friend after making an out:

In his final game of the season on Sunday against the Marlins, the Mets’ Noah Syndergaard swung at a pitch and missed … but his bat separated from itself and broke into pieces as he began his swing — which, again, he missed. What?
