Phillies left fielder Rhys Hoskins had a rough night Monday going 0 for 4 with three strikeouts, but it was his final at-bat that really left a mark.
On a 1-2 count against Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, Hoskins took a big swing at an inside fastball. What resulted was a foul tip directly into his mouth.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Bogaerts is day-to-day and added Bogaerts was due for a day off Saturday night, anyway.
As you might have guessed from the 6.75 ERA in five starts against Boston, Red Sox hitters have strong numbers in their at-bats against Leake. Rafael Devers is 3-for-5 (.600) with a homer, Brock Holt 4-for-9 (.444), Bogaerts 5-for-12 (.417), Benintendi 3-for-8 (.375), J.D. Martinez 4-for-11 (.364) with a homer, and Mookie Betts 3-for-9 (.333). Eduardo Nunez is just 2-for-9 (.222).
For the Mariners, Dee Gordon is 4-for-5 (.800), Segura 3-for-6 (.500) and Ben Gamel 3-for-7 (.429) against Rodriguez, but Mitch Haniger is 0-for-6, Ryon Healy 1-for-12 (.083), Nelson Cruz 1-for-10 (.100), Guillermo Heredia 2-for-12 (.167) and Kyle Seager 2-for-9 (.222).
Both weekend games could be threatened by rain that is expected to be in the area throughout the weekend.
Attached to the comment from Brady’s verified Instagram account were three monkey emojis, which according to Unicode are the three wise monkeys of the proverb, see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. Emojipedia.org also notes that the speak-no-evil monkey is sometimes used as a playful ‘I didn’t want to say that’ expression, or to express my lips are sealed/I won’t say anything.
Brady’s comment matches what he told ESPN senior writer Ian O’Connor in May 2017, when he said, I always said my mid-40s, and naturally that means around 45. If I get there and I still feel like I do today, I don’t see why I wouldn’t want to continue.
In his interview with Winfrey that aired Sunday, Brady acknowledged there could be something else that is a significant part of his decision-making process: his three children.
As long as I’m still loving it. As long as I’m loving the training and preparation and willing to make the commitment. But it’s also, I think what I’ve alluded to a lot in the [‘Tom vs. Time’] docuseries was there’s other things happening in my life, too. I do have kids that I love, and I don’t want to be a dad that’s not there driving my kids to their games, Brady said in the interview.
