I’ll be on NBC SportsTalk at 6PM Eastern talking about the Hall of Fame results

Self-promotion alert! I’ll be on NBC SportsTalk on the NBC Sports Network at 6pm eastern this evening, talking about the Hall of Fame vote totals. Note: I predicted the shutout on last night’s show and intend to gloat about it.

Following me will be an interview with Dale Murphy, who I am sure will have some strong opinions on his continued neglect by the Hall of Fame voters.  And yes, it’s the real Dale Murphy. I’m not making up players this time.

Tune it at 6PM on the NBC Sports Network!

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.
