The Dodgers probably need a team spokesman


Because when Magic Johnson and Mark Walter say things about the team, they aren’t always truthful:

Neither Johnson nor Mark Walter, the Dodgers’ chairman, attended the meeting as promised. That left Kasten to answer for the comments Johnson and Walter made at last week’s news conference, when they pointedly said McCourt would make no money from the Dodgers beyond any future development of the stadium property.

“I regret we left that impression,” Kasten said.

He regrets it because it was totally and 100% wrong.

Look, this is a minor little business thing that 99.9% of the fans won’t give a rip about. But hopefully the new owners will learn quickly that candor will do wonders for them. And, if the fans don’t trust you, they’re not gonna give the product you put on the field the benefit of the doubt.

The Milwaukee Brewers perform “The Sandlot”

A lot of teams do funny promo videos during spring training. The Seattle Mariners have led the league in this category for years now, with their marketing and p.r. folks producing and a lot of game and sometimes hammy players starring in some excellent clips. They’re doing them again this year, if you’re curious.

The Milwaukee Brewers have hopped on the humor train in 2018, and their latest entry in this category of commercials is excellent. It’s their riff on “The Sandlot.”

The biggest difference: Smalls really could kill you in this one. Brett Phillips is a lot more jacked than the kid who played Scotty in the original was.

The Beast, however, is just as terrifying now as he was in 1993.
