Bud Norris criticizes Latino players, apologizes immediately

While You Were Drinking – 2015 Game 158 (MIL vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Astros and Craig Kimbrel

In what has become an all-too-familiar tradition, by early September I began looking around at teams whose bandwagons I could jump on. Typically in making these picks I root for interesting stories, forlorn franchises, and players I particularly like to watch play. With an package and pointless Padres games, I found myself watching a lot of Blue Jays, Nationals, Cubs, Pirates...
