Omar Infante’s thumb is OK


From the “I didn’t realize this even happened as I was watching the game last night” comes Omar Infante’s thumb, which he apparently jammed while diving for Mark Teixeira’s single in the top of the ninth inning.  He also apparently had x-rays on it and they have come back negative.

He’ll be in today’s lineup.

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.
