“I was not true to my wife after 42 years. I broke her trust,” he said. “I’m here today to own that mistake and to apologize to her and to those who I disappointed and those who have trusted in me and I let them down.”
The Atlanta Braves have gone 4-11 in September, falling out of Wild Card contention in the National League. This fan didn’t bring his glove to Wednesday night’s game at Turner Field and paid the price, attempting to catch a foul ball with his hat. Hopefully he has a good insurance plan. Nothing a few $10 beers can’t fix.
The Baltimore Orioles clinched the AL East on Tuesday night with an 8-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. It is the Orioles first division title since 1997. To celebrate, the O’s broke out the cream pies. Adam Jones even let fans get in on the action.
“The guys are having a great time, and they earned it,” said Duquette, the team’s executive vice president of baseball operations. “We’ve got some more work to do, and these guys know it, but congratulations to them on the division crown. They did a great job.”
With their ninth win in 10 games, the Orioles clinched their second playoff appearance in three years following a run of 14 consecutive losing seasons.
Asked about the incident, Kemp replied, “A good game we played today, huh?”
Puig and Manager Don Mattingly also woudn’t say what happened.
Dodgers fans might feel a little like Kemp in the video when it comes to Puig these days. After putting up MVP-caliber numbers before the All Star break (.309/.393/.522), the Cuban star’s production has fallen off considerably. In August he managed an anemic .543 OPS. In September its up to . 675.
Meanwhile Kemp hit his fifth home run in September Monday night, helping push his OPS over 1.000 for the month, hinting at a return to MVP-type levels after two injury-plagued years.
