Roger Clemens tweeted a statement about his failure to make the Hall of Fame. Or, should I say, he tweeted an image of his statement. The sentiment: not surprising. The font: unfortunate:
And if anyone knows what “Muchie Peachie” means, well, just keep it to yourself, OK? I really don’t want to know.
Scott Lauber of the Philly Inquirer reports that the Phillies have agreed to terms with infielder Danny Espinosa. He’ll report to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
This will be Espinosa’s fourth organization this year, as he has spent time under contract with the Yankees, Blue Jays and Dodgers in 2018, being released by all three teams after a few weeks. He last appeared in the big leagues in 2017, hitting a mere .173/.245/.278 in 93 games for the Angels, Mariners and Rays. He hit 20 homers a couple of times way back in the day, though, and I guess that — and the humility to accept minor league assignments — will earn you shots if you’re a good guy and you’re in decent shape.
