Pete Rose would like to tell you something about Joe DiMaggio

So, Pete Rose and Joe DiMaggio are in the jungle in Vietnam, and DiMaggio decides he needs to take a shower …

No, that’s not the intro to a joke.  It happened. Pete Rose said it did.  And even though it’s a true story and not a joke, it does have some punchline.  Why Pete Rose felt compelled to share it is another story, but he’s Pete Rose and we love him for that.

BTW: the story and the website are clean enough, but it is basically a locker room story, so if that bugs you, don’t click through.

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
