Nothing says October like apples and playoff baseball, so combining them seems like a great idea. Not like this, though. 

When the Indians open the ALCS on Friday in Cleveland they will be selling a new apple-based concession item. Just looking at it makes me physically ill.

That’s an apple stuffed with beef, doused in a cider glaze and covered with peanuts and “fall herbs.”

It almost has an air of haute-cuisine. If you read in Bon Appetit that some inventive new chef in Portland had created this, you’d probably pretend it sounded it good. Coming from the stadium that offers a Froot Loop hot dog, though? No thank you.
