I don’t know who is to blame for this. The thin air? Nolan Arenado? One of the guys on the Cardinals? No one is talking.
All I know is that someone his a moon shot at Coors Field during batting practice last night and deprived the good people sitting in the outfield of some tasty burgers.
In other news, this was the “Helton Burger Shack.” I love ballpark concessions named after former players. They should open one named after David Neid. Maybe a bakery or something for some sort of punny name? Eh, I’ll work on it.
NEW YORK — The active New York Mets added another newcomer to their bullpen mix when they claimed reliever Sam Coonrod off waivers from the NL East rival Philadelphia Phillies.
Coonrod had a 7.82 ERA in 12 appearances covering 12 2/3 innings last year for the National League champions. The right-hander is 7-5 with a 5.27 ERA and five saves in 105 games over four major league seasons with San Francisco and Philadelphia. He has struck out 95 and walked 44 in 97 1/3 innings.
The 30-year-old Coonrod was designated for assignment by the Phillies last week when they signed free agent infielder Josh Harrison.
To make room on the 40-man roster, outfielder Khalil Lee was designated for assignment by the Mets.
