    TORONTO — The right guy, at the right time. That’s how Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons described the situation in the bottom of the eighth inning when, with two on and two out, Jose Bautista came up to bat.

    But if you've got the FIFA 17 reboot on your fall shopping list, you won't be able to play Gylfi Sigurdsson & Co. After an offer of $15,000 U.S. from game developer EA Sports for the rights to include them for the first time, the country's FA said no thanks and had its counter-offer rejected, according to its president Geir Thorsteinsson in a BBC report:
