Suspected “serial bank robber” wears Red Sox hat

15 Comments

Three recent bank robberies in Ohio are being traced back to a man “who wears a distinctive Boston Red Sox baseball cap,” according to Jennifer Baker of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Still shots of surveillance footage of the unmasked man wearing his Red Sox hat accompany the Cincinnati Enquirer news story and police say he simply “passed a teller a note and a white plastic bag.”

Baker writes that “the suspect implied he had a gun” and “fled … in an early 1990’s gray Chevrolet Blazer-type vehicle.”

Based on that information, I’m guessing this is less “guy so bold he doesn’t even wear a mask” and more “guy so strapped for cash he can’t afford a mask.”

Also seems like bad news for the Indians and Reds that they can’t even get the local bank robbers to wear their hats.

White Sox slugger Jiménez sidelined with bruised foot

CHICAGO — Chicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez has a sprained right foot, likely sidelining the slugger for a pivotal season-ending series against the crosstown Cubs.

The White Sox had dropped a season-high five in a row heading into the weekend set, falling out of first place in the AL Central. They are hoping to get back on track heading into their playoff appearance since 2008, but the health of Jimenez is a concern.

Jimenez, who is batting .296 with 14 homers and 41 RBIs, was injured sliding across home in the seventh inning of Chicago’s 5-4 loss at Cleveland on Thursday. Manager Rick Renteria said the 23-year-old left fielder will need “to be off his feet” for a few days.

“There’s inflammation in there and they want to calm it down” Renteria said. “We’ll know more in a few days.”

The White Sox trailed the first-place Twins by a game heading into the series with the Cubs. They are just one ahead of the third-place Indians. The AL postseason begins on Tuesday.
