Juan Uribe had a great, great night last night. Then he gave a standup presser outside of his locker and we saw his great, great ballcap:

No judgment here, Juan. My views on our nation’s marijuana laws and the social stigma involved are pretty liberal. But I do wonder if Major League Baseball feels the same way about it.

Tigers GM Al Avila said on Tuesday, via MLB.com’s Jason Beck, that there’s been significant headway made in the quest to trade second baseman Ian Kinsler. He said, “We’ve gotten to the point where names have been exchanged. We just can’t agree.”

Kinsler, 35, is in the last year of his contract with the Tigers, earning $10 million for this coming season. In 2017, the veteran batted .236/.313/.412 with 22 home runs, 52 RBI, and 90 runs scored in 613 plate appearances.

It’s not known yet which team (or teams) have gotten far in discussions with the Tigers, but the Angels have been suggested as a good fit given their need for a second baseman.
