“If you have the body of a 30-year-old man and the brain of a 15-year-old boy, you can play baseball like the best”… Pete Rose.
The Question of the Week…: Shohei Ohtani is sensational for three details. 1) he is Japanese, 2) he is a tremendous pitcher and 3) he is a tremendous hitter. But what is the name of the city where he was born?
The answer…: Oshü, Iwate.
Disgusted Jeter. In an ESPN photo composite, four shirtless shortstops appear, Edgar Rentería, Rey Ordóñez, Alex Rodríguez and Derek Jeter. And in the studio, to one side, A-Rod was very smiling and Jeter very serious.
The headline: "Derek Jeter gets ambushed with infamous photo on 'Kay-Rod' broadcast."
Jeter was taken in for an interview, told that they would show that photo, and replied that then would be the last time he would attend anything on ESPN.
And yes, he left visibly angry. And they don't know why the captain dislikes those nudes.
Guerrilla in Oakland. The 33-year-old Maracay player, Elvis Andrus, guerilla in the clubhouse of the Athletics. He demands more appearances. Manager Mark Kotsay has been giving 23-year-old Nick Allen more opportunities in recent days. Said Elvis: "Everyone knows I'm a daily game big leaguer."
The veteran shortstop has a clause in his contract that would automatically earn him a $15 million extension if he appears at the plate 550 times this season. He already has 382, but is batting 236, seven home runs, 28 RBIs.
“The secret to being successful as a manager is to keep the 12 players who hate you away from the 13 who are still undecided”… Casey Stengel.
Laren injured. The right-handed pitcher from Barquisimeto, Carlos Carrasco (Mets), 35, underwent an MRI examination, which revealed an injury to his left side. They hope it can launch again in no more than four weeks.
Yankee shortstop. The manager of the Yankees, Aaron Boone, asked his scouts to observe with special interest the Guarenero shortstop, Oswaldo Cabrera, 23 years old and already with six seasons in the minors, plus an average of 263, 60 home runs, 303 RBIs and 63 steals in 93 attempts. He has recovered from a shoulder injury.
“I was strikeout three thousand for Bob Gibson and also strikeout three thousand for Nolan Ryan. That is called being in the right place at the right time”… Cesarín Gerónimo.
Thanks to the life that has given me so much, even a reader like you.
