HBT’s official MLB Fan Cave dweller needs your help

10 Comments

Back in February we endorsed Lindsay Guentzel as our favorite MLB Fan Cave candidate and asked HBT nation to help vote her in. It worked, as she was selected from 22,000 entrants and 50 finalists.

She’s been living in New York all season and stuff like “touch Joe Mauer’s hair” has become a daily occurrence, but now the MLB Fan Cave is voting out residents, Survivor-style, and Lindsay needs some more help sticking around.

Click here to cast another vote for Lindsay, if only because that’s the most emotion Joe Mauer has shown in a decade and MLB needs more, not fewer, baseball-loving women in its life.

Angels acquire Jabari Blash from the Yankees

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.
