So much went on in last night’s Red Sox-Yankees game. So much of it dumb. This may have been the dumbest.
It’s one thing to hate A-Rod. It’s another thing to sit down and make a sign to bring with you to the ballpark to advertise your hate for A-Rod. But it’s a third thing altogether to misspell the word “Loser” in that sign and have it show up on national television. The screencap from CJ Folger:
There are so many reasons to hate Rodriguez. There were so many things coming out of Boston yesterday to undermine it.
Athletics slugger Khris Davis injured his right groin in Sunday’s series finale against the Blue Jays and an MRI taken Tuesday revealed a Grade 1 strain, per Steve Kroner of the San Francisco Chronicle. He is expected to be placed on the disabled list ahead of Wednesday night’s game against the Mariners and figures to miss around 2-3 weeks.
Davis has put up an .805 OPS (119 OPS+) with 13 home runs and 38 RBI in 47 games this season for the A’s, who are two games above .500 (25-23) largely because of their surprisingly consistent offensive production. Oakland is ninth among all MLB teams in runs scored and the club ranks seventh in combined team OPS (.748), behind only the Yankees, Red Sox, Cubs, Braves, Pirates, and Indians.
It sounds like Franklin Barreto is on his way up from Triple-A Nashville to take Davis’ spot.
