Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy and pitching coach Rick Kranitz reportedly have pinkeye. Gross. To prevent further cases, the team's banning high-fives until the contagion goes away. Another way to prevent further cases is by washing your damn hands, you disgusting baseball players.
Jonathan Lucroy was never supposed to be a star. He was a third-round draft pick; according to Baseball Reference, which keeps track of such things, he never made any of the major top 100 prospects lists; and entering his age-26 season, he had a career .260/.307/.366 batting line.
Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy's All-Star ad poked fun at the St. Louis Cardinals, their NL Central rivals, and it was legitimately funny. Today, someone asked St. Louis manager Mike Matheny for his thoughts on the anti-Cardinals spot, and he thought it was hilarious. Nah, just kidding.
This might go down as my favorite sequence of the 2014 baseball season.
Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy's making a push to get voted into this season's All-Star Game, and his anti-Yadier Molina, anti-Cardinals message features the kind of mudslinging one could only find in a local political ad.
