Attention media: Don’t call the Sacramento River Cats the wrong name or else you’ll be fined $1


The Sacramento River Cats — who are often misidentified as “RiverCats” or “Rivercats” or “Ham Fighters” issued a press release today imploring the media who cover them to get the name right or cough up a buck:




Hey guys, that’s great. But before you start fining people, could you maybe add a space in your logo? Because that sure does look like “RiverCats” to me.

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.
