Video: Brewers catcher Manny Pina belts out “Hotel California”


Manny Pina hit .279/.327/.424 as the Brewers’ catcher last year. He only had nine homers. This morning in Maryvale, however, he knocked The Eagles’ “Hotel California” out of the park:

Best part of that video is not the singing, though. It’s the “We Play to Win” t-shirt. In 2018, there are only a handful of teams which can make that claim truthfully.

In other news, yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the release of “The Big Lebowski.” The Dude does not like The Eagles, but I bet he feels better about the Gipsy Kings. And probably Manny Pina too.

Daniel Murphy will miss the start of the season

Daniel Murphy said today that he will not be ready for Opening Day and will start the year on the disabled list.

Murphy had microfracture knee surgery last October. While he has been able to take batting practice and field ground balls, his lateral movement is still limited. In his absence — which is not expected to last past mid-April or so — Howie Kendrick will get the bulk of the playing time at second base.

Murphy hit .322/.384/.543, smacked 23 homers and knocked in 93 RBI in 2017.
