Rangers bullpen-mates Joe Nathan (who grew up in New York) and Mike Adams (who grew up in Texas) made a bet on Wednesday night’s Giants-Cowboys game.

Nathan took the Giants, Adams took the Cowboys, and the loser had to dress up like Tony Romo and wear a full football uniform for all of batting yesterday while signing autographs.

Adams told Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas that it “is probably the best bet I’ve ever won in my entire life” and Durrett snapped a photo of Nathan in action as Romo:

KTAR News is reporting that Diamondbacks outfielder Yasmany Tomas was arrested on Thursday morning for driving faster than 100 MPH, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety. He was charged with reckless driving and criminal speeding.

The maximum sentence for a criminal speeding charge is up to 30 days in jail and a fine up to $500. It is considered a Class 3 misdemeanor. Tomas may also have his license suspended.

A Diamondbacks spokesperson said, “We are very disappointed to learn of this news. We are still gathering facts, and will refrain from further comment at this time as this is a pending legal matter.”

Tomas, 27, signed a six-year, $68.5 million contract with the Diamondbacks in December 2014 as an amateur free agent out of Cuba. He has mostly disappointed, owning a .769 OPS while playing subpar defense in the outfield as well as at third base, where the club briefly tried him. He battled a groin injury for most of the past season and ultimately underwent core muscle surgery in August.
