UPDATE: I’m told the video is from Taiwan. Apologies. Doesn’t change the fact that it’s hilarious.
I found this via, well, everyone on the planet re-tweeting it because it’s so nicely random and silly. But in case you have been away for a couple of weeks, here’s a quick summary of how the Red Sox’ offseason is going so far:
Padres to place Franchy Cordero on DL, activate Hunter Renfroe
Cordero, 23, has been slumping, batting .140 with four extra-base hits in 47 plate appearances dating back to May 11. The Padres noticed that the forearm issue has been affecting his swing in recent games. Manager Andy Green said, “It was something where he could swing a certain way to manage it. But swinging that way was not him.”
Renfroe, 26, has been out since mid-April due to inflammation in his right elbow. He hit .200/.281/.440 in 57 PA prior to landing on the disabled list. Renfroe played in 10 rehab games with Triple-A El Paso.
