Top Stories From the Weekend: 3/11-3/12

  • The US played the Dominican Republic in what was actually a super entertaining WBC game. DR came back from five runs down to beat ‘Merica 7-5. Thoughts and prayers to Andrew Miller because he’s had a rough couple of months. In the eighth inning, DR hit two home runs off Miller, one by Nelson Cruz and one by Starling Marte. Each time the entire bench went insane and it was awesome to watch. If you’re calling DR disrespectful today or complaining about excessive celebration, I hate you.

 

  • Twins pitcher Trevor May became the latest victim of a torn UCL. This comes three days after their 2016 first round pick Alex Kirilloff underwent Tommy John surgery. May recently overcame a season-ending stress fracture in his back, possibly after a fight with Bane, but more likely a result of something else.

 

 

 

  • The Nationals placed Derek Norris on waivers. As with most situations like this, if no one claims Norris he’ll likely be released. Norris had a bit of a down year, but the good news is his .186 average has room for improvement.
