Erisbel Arruebarrena’s might be able to hit, someday. (By: Dustin Nosler)
Of course, everyone looks good in a batting cage, but I saw Erisbel Arruebarrena Sunday morning with Dodgers’ hitting coach Mark McGwire instructing him. It was a small sample size (two rounds of McGwire tossing him pitches underhand), but I liked what I saw.

When Dave Hansen was dismissed as the Dodgers' hitting coach on Oct. 12, I don't think one person thought Mark McGwire would be the man to replace him. But here we are, nearly a month later and that's exactly what's happening.
From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Jose Canseco, who, after all the steroid stuff, we have come to know and love over the last few years as Twitter’s resident profoundly nonsensical madman, made an appearance at a major league ballpark on Thursday, taking in the Los Angeles Dodgers-St. Louis Cardinals tilt at Dodgers Stadium in Chavez Ravine.
