Two weeks ago he said there would be no investigation. No he says the league has “tried mightily” to figure out the leaks. Really?

Runs in bunches and three nice nights from three former heroes who, it turns out, were only mostly dead.

Apr 12, 2015, 1:42 PM EDT
Hamilton jerseys probably wouldn’t be a hot item right now after his performance in 2014 and offseason relapse, so this could be chalked up to a simple supply-and-demand strategy. But it feels more calculated than that given recent comments from Angels owner Arte Moreno.
