Because I know you care:

Major League Baseball held a coin toss today to determine the location for a potential National League Central tie-breaker. If the Reds and Astros finish with the same record, a one-game playoff will take place Tuesday at Cincinnati's Great American Ballpark.

SI.com's Jon Heyman listed four managers this week who are on the hot seat (goners): The Cubs' Dusty Baker, the Marlins' Joe Girardi, the Nationals' Frank Robinson and the Rangers' Buck Showalter. It appears he already got one right. Robinson looks to be done in D.C.

Girardi will end up with the Cubs if Baker if fired. That's the worst-kept secret in baseball.

For what it's worth, Heyman listed Sam Perlozzo as being on the lukewarm seat (better get off to a decent start next year).

Peyton Manning a better quarterback than Johnny Unitas?

Did someone really write that?

Let's wait a few more years before making that declaration. And feel free to consider how the NFL has changed since Unitas, who called his own plays, put up his numbers in seasons that didn't consist of 16 games and didn't play half the schedule in a dome facility, was taking snaps.

So should I pay $30 for a pay-per-view telecast of Mike Tyson fighting a four-round exhibition against his sparring partner?

What's next for this guy, wrestling a bear?

Maybe the Orioles should steal this idea to increase revenue. Charge $30 for people to sit home and watch batting practice. Or a Kris Benson bullpen session. Or trainer Richie Bancells massaging someone's injured groin.

OK, that might be $50.
