David Letterman was on vacation when Robin Williams died. His tribute from last night was pitch-perfect.

 

See you at the beach

I haven't been fired (which may be depressing news for some out there). I'm not in rehab. I'm on vacation. 

See you on Aug. 18.

In the meantime, enjoy the Go-Gos... and the rest of the summer.

Brewers acquire OF Parra from Arizona

Jul 31, 2014 -- 1:17pm


The Brewers acquired two-time Gold Glove winner Gerardo Parra from Arizona in exhange for a pair of minor-leaguers.

As the non-waiver trading deadline approached, the Brewers were intent on adding a left-handed bat to their offensive attack.

Gerardo Parra is bringing that, along with a couple Gold Gloves.

The Brewers acquired Parra, 27, in exchange for minor-league outfielder Mitch Haniger and pitcher Anthony Banda.

Parra, who has scuffled a bit at the plate this season, could end up in a platoon with current Milwaukee outfielder Khirs Davis. 

Parra, who makes $4.85 million this year, is eligible for salary arbitration this winter and can be a free agent after 2015.

Haniger, 23, impressed the Brewers during spring training the last two seasons. He was batting .255 with 10 homers in 67 games with Class AA Huntsville. Banda, 20, posted a 3.66 earned run average with Class A Wisconsin and recorded 83 strikeouts and 38 walks in 84 innings. 

 

A Hall of Fame fart joke

I always enjoyed watching Greg Maddux pitch. He was fun to interview, too, especially when I had some decent ammunition from his brother, Mike, the former Brewers pitching coach.

After talking to those two over the years, this moment from the Hall of Fame induction ceremonies did NOT come as a surprise. 

But, it was awesome

No matter what you think about Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and his legacy, you have to "re2pect" this commercial effort, provided by Nike and the Jordan brand.

Spectacular.
