Mark Grace is probably gonna do time

Former Diamondbacks announcer Mark Grace was indicted yesterday on four felony counts of aggravated driving or actual physical control while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs. And because it’s his second arrest in a 15 month span, he’s likely to do jail time even if he pleads out:

Authorities said Grace faces between one and 3.75 years in prison on each count, but the sentences would likely be imposed concurrently if he’s convicted because they relate to one incident. Grace, 48, could face less time if he pleads guilty to reduced charges, according to authorities who said he’s not probation eligible because it was his second DUI charge in a 15-month span.

He’s already lost his broadcasting job over this and now he looks destined for time in Sheriff Joe’s tent city.  Bad times for Mark Grace, but he only has himself to blame.

Craig Counsell pulls Wade Miley after one batter

Brewers manager Craig Counsell took “the opener” to new heights in Game 5 of the NLCS on Wednesday evening. Expecting Wade Miley to pitch a sizable portion of the game, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts stacked the lineup with right-handed hitters behind leadoff batter Cody Bellinger.

Wade Miley walked Bellinger to start the game. Counsell promptly walked to the mound and called for right-hander Brandon Woodruff, removing Miley from the game after just one batter and five pitches, as was the plan. Woodruff will face almost exclusively right-handers down the Dodgers’ lineup with the exceptions of Max Muncy and Clayton Kershaw.

Miley will now start Game 6. Or will he?
