Thing is, his advice ends up being better than the real manager’s advice, which is to issue an intentional walk. The real manager, by the way, happened to be a Hall of Fame Negro Leagues player. If you have a super-human alien and a baseball immortal being this awfully wrong, perhaps we ought to take it a bit easy on the Eric Wedges and Ned Yosts of the world?

Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that Giants pitcher Dereck Rodriguez has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a Grade 1 strain of his hamstring. Rodriguez apparently suffered the injury during Tuesday’s altercation with the Dodgers which featured Yasiel Puig and Nick Hundley.

Rodriguez, 22, has been having an outstanding rookie season, posting a 2.25 ERA with a 65/19 K/BB ratio in 80 innings across 12 starts and two relief appearances.

Casey Kelly will start in Rodriguez’s place against the Reds on Friday.
