Johnny Damon is ridiculous

One day his agent is proclaiming his love of octopus in order to brown nose the Tigers. The next day he’s texting writers in Atlanta saying that the Braves are at the “top of the list.”

Tampa Bay is allegedly in the running too.  Look for Boras to go on the radio today talking about how much he loves early bird specials and the Gasparilla Pirate Festival.

Aaargh.

Brewers outfielder Curtis Granderson got his first hit of the postseason on Wednesday night in the top of the ninth inning of NLCS Game 5. Facing Ryan Madson with a runner on third base and two outs, Granderson laced a 3-2 fastball to the gap in right-center field. Granderson hustled into second base to beat the throw by Yasiel Puig. He slid head-first and his helmet slid off in the process. The helmet, unfortunately, bounced off the second base bag back towards Granderson’s face, hitting him in the mouth and chipping his front tooth.

To his credit, Granderson is taking the accident in stride:

At least Granderson doesn’t play hockey for a living.
