MLB and Victoria’s Secret are teaming up to sell licensed clothing to young women under the “Pink” label. As Maury describes:
“The collection showcases VS PINK’s highly recognizable brand
iconography with fun sayings like “I only kiss Padres fans” or “Love
Love Love Twins”, and boasts cute zip-pocket tees, crystallized caps,
baseball jerseys, as well as stylish and comfortable hoodies, tanks,
sweats, shorts and more.”
Female baseball fans who want to buy logo-merchandise that doesn’t condescend to them as shallow, luv-crazy juveniles can presumably still purchase products at MLB.com.
Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports that Colby Rasmus has agreed to a minor league deal with the Baltimore Orioles.
Rasmus, 31, played only 37 games with the Rays last year. The reason: the previous offseason he underwent surgery to repair his left hip labrum and his core muscle, and the hip continued to bother him throughout spring training. He began the season on the disabled list and made his debut on May 2, hitting .281/.318/.579 in 129 plate appearances before going back on the DL June 23. He’d never return, “stepping away” from the game in the words of the club, which placed him on the restricted list for the remainder of the season.
