Funny story from The Slanch Report. It has an air of “my best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with the girl …” to it, but I am going to assume it is true because I want it to be true.
Click through for the story in the relator’s own words, but the upshot: Bobby Valentine took the phone call to accept the Red Sox job while sitting in a library in Japan. As soon as he hung up a Yankees fan who overheard walked up to him and said “go Yankees!”
And yes, I’m running out of Bobby Valentine pictures to use. Someone, take the man’s picture, will ya?
Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.
Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.
Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
