After reading this, one wonders when the Tuffy Rhodes museum is going to be built in the United States …
Texas Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish is only 26 years old, but he apparently has accomplished enough in that short time to be immortalized in his homeland of Japan. According to Japanese media reports, planning is underway for a Darvish museum in the Hyogo prefecture, in the southern part of the country. The tentative plan calls for a November opening.
Or maybe Warren Cromartie.
Still, for it to beat Ichiro’s museum, it will have to be run by Darvish’s mom.
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?
