50 Cent goes wide left on ceremonial first pitch


Our friend Jeff Passan at Yahoo Sports has the footage …

Not sure about “single worst first pitch” — that’s a long list — but it belongs in the conversation. “Call Me Maybe” singer Carly Rae Jepsen threw a similarly-wide-left pitch last year at Tropicana Field.

And if there’s an athletes-only category, let’s go with Washington Wizards guard John Wall.

Angels sign Zack Cozart to a three-year, $38 million deal

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels have signed infielder Zack Cozart to a three-year, $38 million deal.

That seems like a bargain deal for Cozart, who hit .297/.385/.548 with 24 homers and 63 RBI as the Cincinnati Reds shortstop in 2017. In Anaheim, however, he will not be playing short — not with Andrelton Simmons around — so he’ll slide over to third base. He’s never played there, but you figure he can handle it.

This is a pretty nifty move for the Angels, as the other top third base options — specifically, Mike Moustakas — are likely going to cost a lot more than what they’ll be paying Cozart.

Between this, the Ian Kinsler trade and the Shohei Ohtani acquisition, the Angels are going to be sporting a very different look in 2018.
