Video: Brewers broadcast booth sends fan a beer after he loses his in a foul ball scrum

15 Comments

This is fun. During the Brewers-Jays game, a fan had his beer — which he just bought, it appears — spilled all over the place when another fan went lunging for a foul ball. You had to feel for the guy. The Brewers broadcast booth sure did. They sent him a new one:

I’m not 100% sure who the broadcasters are there. I think it’s Brian Anderson and Bill Schroeder, but Brewers fans can correct me if I’m wrong.

Good on ya, guys. I mean, the fan who spilled his brew should’ve been the one to replace it, but sometimes you gotta just step in and do justice when common citizens won’t.

Twins sign Michael Pineda to a two-year deal

The Twins just announced that they have signed pitcher Michael Pineda to a two-year contract.

Pineda, 28, has a 4.05 career ERA and has struck out 9.1 batters per nine innings over 680 career major league innings.

Pineda underwent Tommy John surgery this past July, so the Twins are buying a 2018 filled mostly with rehab and a pitcher for 2019. As such, the deal is probably not too taxing financially, but could pay off pretty well for them if Pineda comes back strong.
