Ian Kinsler tells umpire to do his job, gets ejected

Of course, Kinsler mixed in another word or two. Ian Kinsler had a rough afternoon on Sunday, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout. After home plate umpire Doug Eddings called Jose Iglesias out on a low strike three, Kinsler had a helpful reminder for the 17-year veteran. @blessyouboys Kinsler makes his point. pic.twitter.com/i667dEt0VW — Stu Whitney (@stuwhitney) August 16, 2015 Sometimes it's just nice to hear that your work is appreciated. h/t @stuwhitney

Game 2015.113: Tigers at Royals

It looked like another blowout in the making yesterday with Boyd’s first inning, but he pulled it together and ended up pitching a good game, and giving Detroit a chance to win.

Game T #113: Athletics vs. Astros

A's have outplayed the Astros but are tied 1-1 with Chris Bassitt fanning 10 through 6 innings. Abad warming in the bullpen. Eclectic, pre-game rambling...Here we go: 1. I am a fan of José Altuve—aka Gigante. He's 5'5" in the press book (which no doubt means 5'4" or even 5'3"), and he defies the strength gods with his compact power and control. Magnificent. Great defensive range. Consistent bat with a current batting average of .298, 12th best in the American League, dropping from 10th yesterday when Manny Machado went 4 for 5 and Ian Kinsler went 3 for 4. We do need to hold...
