Reds pitchers Bronson Arroyo and Aroldis Chapman visited the MLB Fan Cave yesterday while wearing red hooded sweatshirts, so naturally Arroyo broke out his guitar and they did a duet, baseball-themed version of the Adam Sandler song “Red Hooded Sweatshirt” from his Saturday Night Live days.
Arroyo actually does a pretty solid Sandler impression along with the guitar playing (and presumably lyric writing), but Chapman definitely steals the show. Seriously, wait for it:
Cardinals sign Matt Wieters to one-year, $2 million deal
Jon Heyman reports that the Cardinals and free agent catcher Matt Wieters have agreed on a one-year, $2 million deal. Wieters can earn an additional $1 million through incentives.
Wieters, 33, spent last season with the Cardinals as Yadier Molina‘s backup. In 67 games, the veteran hit .214/.268/.435 with 11 home runs and 27 RBI. While Wieters has left something to be desired offensively in recent years, he still plays solid defense behind the plate.
Wieters will once again serve as the backup to Molina. Catching prospect Andrew Knizner is expected to start the season at Triple-A Memphis.
