Managers have instant replay cheat sheets

Mike Bernadino of the Pioneer Press shows us the replay cheat sheet that Twins manager Ron Gardenhire has with him during games:

Handy. Lacking, however, as it does not say “immediately go out onto the field and kill time while you wait for your bench coach to flash you the thumbs-up sign to initiate a challenge.” But based on what we’ve seen, I suppose that’s simply implied.

Red Sox Triple-A team to ban people named Tyler and Austin from stadium on May 5 and 6 as part of promotion

The Pawtucket Red Sox, obviously the Triple-A affiliate of the Red Sox, have come up with an interesting promotion for the weekend of May 5 and 6, when they host the Yankees’ Triple-A team from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

This, of course, references last week’s benches-clearing fracas between the Red Sox and Yankees that involved Joe Kelly and Tyler Austin. Kelly slid hard into second base, which upset Brock Holt. The benches emptied as the two jawed at each other, but no punches were thrown. Later in the game, Kelly threw at Austin and the benches emptied again. Punches were thrown this time and both players were given suspensions.

The major league Red Sox visit the Yankees May 8-10. As far as we’re aware, people named Joe or Kelly are allowed to attend.
