Die Hard Cardinals Fan is pretty awesome

The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called
resignation is confirmed desperation. Other men paint their portly naked torsos proclaiming themselves “Die Hard Cardinals Fan.”

Best part: the words on his back are printed pretty clearly, which suggests that he has a wife or a girlfriend help him with this getup before every game.  So what I’m saying is that no matter how bad your social life is, you now have incontrovertible proof that, yes, there is someone out there for everyone.

The Angels announced on Monday that Eric Hinske has joined the team to serve as the new hitting coach. Hinske had been the hitting coach for the Cubs since 2014.

Hinske, 40, spent parts of 12 years in the majors, though he never played for the Angels (or the Cubs). He put up a .762 OPS over his career.

Dave Hansen had been the Angels hitting coach since the end of the 2015 season but the Angels decided to part ways with him heading into 2018.
