The Tigers’ Zubaz broke their airplane

You can forgive the Tigers for a little jocularity these days. They’re winning like crazy and just about everything is going well. In order to keep the momentum they did what a lot of teams do when spirits are light: they played dressup. Their costume of choice was Tigers-stripe Zubaz:

The New York Yankees have acquired reliever A.J. Cole from the Washington Nationals for cash considerations.

Cole was supposed to be the Nats’ fifth starter this year but that didn’t work out too well. He pitched in four games for the Nats, starting two, to the tune of a 13.06 ERA, having given up six home runs in 10.1 innings. That’s . . . something.

Don’t get too used to Cole on the New York roster, as this seems like one of those “give us an arm” for a couple of days deals, after which Cole will be DFA’d and will either accept an assignment to Scranton or be cut loose. Such is life at the fringes for a guy who is out of minor league options.
