Brett Lawrie has a bit of a checkered Twitter history. He’s a Twitter drama queen and goes after “haters” and all that stuff that you’d think a highly-paid professional athlete would and should be above. But he’s a kid, really, and kids do silly stuff on social media all the time.

And it appears to run in the family. This from his sister, Danielle Lawrie, who herself is an olympic softball player, after brother Brett was ejected during Friday night’s Jays-Orioles game for throwing his helmet:

My compliments on the use of the past tense in that last one.  And for ignoring the fact that Lawrie has a much more checkered history with throwing helmets than he does with Twitter.

The Angels announced on Monday that Eric Hinske has joined the team to serve as the new hitting coach. Hinske had been the hitting coach for the Cubs since 2014.

Hinske, 40, spent parts of 12 years in the majors, though he never played for the Angels (or the Cubs). He put up a .762 OPS over his career.

Dave Hansen had been the Angels hitting coach since the end of the 2015 season but the Angels decided to part ways with him heading into 2018.
