From today’s LA Times:
You know what’s missing in this game, maybe in the last six or seven years?” Kent said. “People don’t question or challenge plays that are made in this game anymore. We allow umpires and we allow coaches and we allow players to do things and we just turn the other cheek. That didn’t happen when I played.
“When I played.” As in, the past tense? Just kidding, though – I really can’t bag on Kent anymore, as he’s been incredible lately. After putting up a brutal .203/.247/.304 with 2 HR in May, causing some (okay, me) to point out that he was on pace to be the worst cleanup hitter of the last 50 years, he’s been resurgent in June: .273/.316/.833 with 3 HR already.
Speaking of Kent, I’m sure you’ve all seen this already, but I simply cannot refrain from posting what may be the single greatest picture of all time (via Sons of Steve Garvey):
No words… should have sent… a poet.
