Miguel Montero has had a bad back for some time. It’s gotten too bad so the Dbacks are placing him on the 15-day disabled list. Wil Nieves will take over backstop duties in Arizona.
Given Montero’s track record I fully expect him to give an interview in two weeks in which he tells us, in no uncertain terms, what he thinks of that freakin’ stupid, chickens**t, immature disabled list.
Lakers legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna were two of nine people who died in a helicopter accident in Calabasas, California earlier today. Bryant’s death sent shockwaves throughout the basketball world, as well as the sports world at large. Here were a few reactions from the baseball world.
We certainly echo these sentiments, sending our condolences to the families and friends of those affected today. What a sad day.
