Great Moments in Scott Boras: The Rafael Soriano pitch to the Yankees

22 Comments

Peter Gammons heard about the pitch Rafael Soriano and Scott Boras made to the Yankees. It’s tasty:

 

If I’m Brian Cashman I come back with “we won 20 World Series without a closer at all. Of the other seven, five were won with the guy you’re now bashing by default. We’ll take our chances.”

But you gotta love the stones on Boras for coming up with this one.

Freddie Freeman’s X-rays come back negative

The Braves got a scare last night after first baseman Freddie Freeman was hit on the left wrist by a Hoby Milner fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was doubly scary given that, less than a year ago, the same wrist was fractured when Aaron Loup plunked him last year, causing Freeman to miss over a month and a half.

Good news, though: the Braves just announced that Freeman’s X-rays are negative and that he’s day-to-day.

On the season, Freeman is batting .288/.468/.492 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored in 79 plate appearances.
