Miguel Cabrera murdered a baseball

Miguel Cabrera faced off against Jonathan Papelbon today. Then this happened:

 

Gotta tell ya, I really think Papelbon wouldn’t have gotten rocked like that if someone in the Phillies clubhouse had shown more leadership. What is Michael Young there for, anyway?

BTW:  Wait until the end of the clip: “is that over the tiki bar??!”  That’s almost as good as “Si or no, motherf***er ??!!”

Baseball is back, folks. It doesn’t count yet, but it’s back.

Phillies place Jay Bruce on the IL, recall Nick Williams

The Phillies have placed outfielder Jay Bruce on the 10-day injured list with a right oblique strain. He sustained the injury during a plate appearance in the third inning of last night’s game against the Dodgers. The team expects Bruce to miss at least three weeks.

With Bruce gone so too goes his power — he has 24 homers on the year — and they will try to replace some of it with Nick Williams. Williams has struggled at the big league level but is hitting .345/.403/.628 with six home runs in 28 games at Triple-A this year.
