Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Brett Anderson is known for being quite the entertaining tweeter, but he took this a bit overboard on Tuesday when going after former Houston Astros pitcher Lucas Harrell.

But all have something to like...

Sure, Bridich doesn’t really “hit” per se, but this was his first move, his first test, his first anything. And it was subtle. One might argue that Bridich really...
