The Indians told a fan he could throw out a first pitch if he got 100 million RTs, and he’s going for it

All Jack Lipscomb wanted was to throw out a first pitch at Major-League game. That’s why he tweeted this: How many RTs for you guys to let me throw out a first pitch some time @Indians — Jack Lipscomb (@Young_Seneca) January 22, 2017 Hey, worth a try, right? Surely Jack did not actually expect the official Cleveland Indians Twitter account to respond to his random tweet...

Angels listening to offers on Hector Santiago

The Angels have received inquiries from a number of teams about left-hander Hector Santiago, and they’re willing to listen to offers for him, reports ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick (on Twitter).

Boxscore Breakdown #37: Santiago Shines in Seattle – Angels 3, Mariners 0

The better side of Hector Santiago‘s fortnightly Jekyll/Hyde routine found it’s way back to the mound on Sunday, shutting out the Mariners for eight innings on just two hits.

2016 Angels Preview: Hector Santiago

If Charles Dickens were commissioned to write a depiction of Hector Santiago‘s 2015 season—paid by the word, of course—he probably couldn’t do any better than simply copying and pasting his intro from A Tale of Two Cities several times over.
