On this date in 1993, everybody’s favorite author, Jose Canseco, shows everybody how not to use your head!! This blooper is certain to be on highlight reels for all eternity!
So, who used their head on Monday? Or whose head will be fitted with a Chai 5 cap? Let’s take a looksie!
Brad Ausmus, C – Los Angeles Dodgers
Brad didn’t play in Monday’s big win over the Rockies.
Ryan Braun, OF, 3B – Milwaukee Brewers
Ryan went 0-for-4, with a strikeout, in the Brewers 1-0 win over the Cardinals. This game was a pitcher’s duel between the Cardinals’ Chris Carpenter and the Brewers’ Yovani Gallardo. As a result of being shut down, Ryan’s batting average fell to .325.
Craig Breslow, P – Oakland A’s
Craig didn’t pitch in the A’s win over the Mariners.
Scott Feldman, P – Texas Rangers
Scott had a well-deserved day of rest and is scheduled to pitch later in the week.
John Grabow, P, Pittsburgh Pirates
John pitched a scoreless 8th inning, and picked up his 6th hold of the year in the Pirates win over the Cubbies on Monday. In doing so, he lowered his ERA to 4.71.
That effort earned him a Chai 5:
Gabe Kapler, OF – Tampa Bay Rays
Gabe didn’t play in Monday’s loss to the Indians.
Ian Kinsler, 2B – Texas Rangers
Ian went 0-for-4 on Monday in the Rangers loss to the Yanks, which lowered his average to .278. He also took part in a double play.
Jason Marquis, P – Colorado Rockies
Jason is slated to pitch later in the week.
Scott Schoeneweis, P – Arizona Diamondbacks
Scott is currently dealing with the unexpected loss of his wife. My prayers are with him.
Kevin Youkilis, 1B, 3B – Boston Red Sox
Youk went 2-for-5 on Monday in the BoSox victory over the Twins, with both hits being doubles (numbers 12 and 13). He scored his only run after hitting his first double and drove in 2 with his second double (RBIs # 27 and 28). He raised his average slightly to .384.
