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.

Mets first baseman Dominic Smith is dealing with a strained right quad and is set to undergo an MRI on Monday, MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo reports.

Smith, 22, did not play in the Mets’ first Grapefruit League game after showing up late. He played on Saturday, scoring two runs on a single and a hit-by-pitch in two plate appearances. He was held out of Sunday’s lineup.

The Mets signed Adrian Gonzalez during the offseason, which makes him the front runner for the starting job at first base. Smith needs to have a strong spring showing to make the 25-man roster but so far, it hasn’t gone well.

Smith made his major league debut in August last year and ended up playing in 49 games. He struggled to a .198/.262/.395 slash line with nine home runs and 26 RBI in 183 plate appearances.
