UPDATE: I’m told the video is from Taiwan. Apologies. Doesn’t change the fact that it’s hilarious.
I found this via, well, everyone on the planet re-tweeting it because it’s so nicely random and silly. But in case you have been away for a couple of weeks, here’s a quick summary of how the Red Sox’ offseason is going so far:
Update (5:36 PM ET): Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports the Orioles are close to an agreement with Cobb. The contract is believed to be at least three years and in the range of $50 million.
Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that free agent pitcher Alex Cobb is expected to sign with a team soon. He notes that the Orioles are believed to be the favorite for Cobb’s services. Cobb has kept pushing for a multi-year contract rather than settling for a one-year deal.
Cobb, 30, posted a 3.66 ERA with a 128/44 K/BB ratio in 179 1/3 innings for the Rays last season.
