Wednesday Morning Links: Mauer, Cheaters, Pranks, Racism, and More

Kevin C. Cox

This awful weather this week is bringing back shades of last season. I remember working three games against the Tigers where the game time temperature was in the 40s every day.

That sucked.

Today's Lightning Round is full of joy for a myriad of reasons.
  1. Andrelton Simmons continues to amaze defensively as he slips but still throws out the runner while sitting on the ground.
  2. Watch in slo-mo as Phillies fans try to put a hex on Dan Uggla, then have their faces turn to disappointment as he hits a grand slam.
  3. New White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu hit a ball so hard that he tore its cover.
