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

And, before the game, Matt Kemp was shut down for the...

In coaching high school baseball, I emphasize a few things… If you put the ball in play, good things happen. It’s easy to give up on yourself and on your team when the chips are down, but seriously, that’s baseball. ****** happens, move on. Always run until the umpire calls you out. Generally MLB players don’t NEED to hustle all the time because most plays are going to...

Brewers' skid continues in stomach-churning fashion
