Quote of the Day: Kobe Bryant on A-Rod

27 Comments

Kobe Bryant calls A-Rod his friend. After this, one wonders if Rodriguez feels the same way:

 

Funny stuff, but I am not sold on the premise that A-Rod is having “mental problems.”  Call me crazy, but I would not be at all shocked if we find out over the winter that Rodriguez is suffering from the after affects from that fractured hand he sustained over the summer or has some other sort of nagging injury.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Angels have signed 1B/DH Justin Bour to a contract, pending a physical. The Phillies non-tendered Bour last month.

Bour, 30, spent the 2018 season with the Marlins and Phillies, hitting an aggregate .227/.341/.404 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI in 501 plate appearances.

Bour will likely share first base with Albert Pujols, who is coming off of knee and elbow surgeries. Bour could handle right-handers while the 38-year-old Pujols faces lefties.
