Manny Ramirez just signed for the Sydney Blue Sox and my life just gained meaning.
That's pretty awesome. Given your handle, and I guess Aussie COVID status pending, I'm guessing you get to see a decent amount of games? If so, send us a scouting report.

The Blue Sox play out in the middle of nowhere because the stadium is free. But it's a tough place to get to often. But yeah I'll be heading out to see Manny. I bet he'll be hustling down the baseline!

A day late, but perhaps more meaningful because of the numbered jerseys, Oakland/Houston postpone their game.
“We felt like this message was bigger than missing another game to show support for our brothers, not only on our team but across the league as well to let them know we have their backs,” Astros outfielder Josh Reddick said.

Brock Holt signs with the Nationals

https://www.mlb.com/nationals/news/brock-holt-signs-with-nationals

The Nationals signed do-it-all infielder-outfielder Brock Holt to a one-year contract on Saturday to add versatility to their lineup. He was released by the Brewers on Wednesday.

Washington has constructed its roster on flexibility. Holt, 32, has played all defensive positions except for pitcher and catcher over his nine-year career: second base (243), third base (140), left field (109), right field (81), shortstop (59), first base (36 games), center field (12) and designated hitter (nine).

Holt gives the Nats a sought-after left-handed bat. In 2019, he hit .297 with 77 hits, 31 RBIs and 14 doubles over 87 games in his seventh and final season with the Red Sox. Holt became the only player in Major League history to hit for the cycle in a playoff game during Game 3 of the 2018 American League Division Series against the Yankees. He won a World Series that season, and also was named an All-Star in '15.

Every time I see there's a new post in this thread I get my hopes up that the Indians have released Sandy Leon. He's currently batting .140, and just as soon as Austin Hedges shows he can put a ball in play, Leon becomes redundant.

BROCKHOLT! pitching for the Nats. The scouting report TV infographic reads, “High pants. Solid mustache. Curveball 67 mph.”

The Brockstar looks like an extra from Everybody Wants Some!!
