I’m not the biggest Chip Caray fan in the world, but this is pretty witty:
This, of course, in response to Bryce Harper publicly criticizing Matt Williams’ lineup yesterday.
No word from Chip’s broadcast partner Joe Simpson, but I presume he’s off talking about how he wished Harper would have an anvil fall on him.
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.
