Jackwagon Anaheim bro injuries an old lady while diving for a foul ball

Check out the video of this random foul ball back into the seats in Anaheim last night. Watch as the giant, backwards-cap-wearing broseph first stands in front of and then dives on top of the older woman in order to get the ball. Injuring her shoulder as he does it. She’s in obvious pain and you can see her say the words “my shoulder!”

I’m sure you got a lot of high fives for this buddy. Hope you love that precious baseball.

Yankees, Mariners expressing interest in J.A. Happ

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Yankees and Mariners are both expressing interest in Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ.

Happ is posting a 3.48 ERA and a 94/25 K/BB ratio in 82.2 innings across 14 starts and has been stingy with the hits as well. Between that, the Blue Jays’ lack of contention and the fact that Happ is in the walk year of his three-year, $36 million deal, all signs point to the Jays trading them.

In normal circumstances you might not expect the Jays to make a trade with the Yankees, but at this point it sort of doesn’t matter, does it? It’s not like Happ in New York on a couple month rental will impact the 2018 Jays too much. And, given his pending free agency, it’s not extraordinarily likely that he’d haunt the Jays from the Bronx long term either.

There’s not a ton of elite pitching currently available, but as the trade deadline approaches — a little over a month to go on that score — the talk about Happ, Cole Hamels, Francisco Liriano and others will heat up. Figure the Yankees will be linked with any and all available starters.
