From Olney. And an added “best shape of his life” too!
Best line of the
spring so far: Andrew Jones showed up in great shape, about 25 pounds
lighter than last year. And he proclaimed to others, “I am the
best CFer you guys have in camp.” To which Joey Cora replied, “You
should be. Only pitchers and catchers have reported.”
I wanna take a road trip with Ozzie Guillen and Joey Cora. Just drive from place to place. Meet people. Get in adventures.
You can’t pick your family and no one knows that better than Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford. His sister Amy married Astros starter Gerrit Cole in November 2016, so the two players are brothers-in-law.
The two players have matched up against each other 18 times in the past, as Cole spent his first five seasons in the National League with the Pirates. Cole often won that battle, holding Crawford to four hits — all singles — in 18 plate appearances.
Crawford finally got the better of Cole on Tuesday night, hitting a line drive into the appropriately-named Crawford Boxes at Minute Maid Park for a two-run home run, cutting the Astros’ lead to 5-2.
