"Brewers first baseman Richie Sexson missed an intrasquad game Tuesday because he was a photo day casualty. While posing, Sexson put on a too-small hat and grabbed the bill in an attempt to stretch it for a better fit. He hurt his neck.
"I feel personally responsible," public relations man Jon Greenberg said. "I handed him a 6 5/8 when he asked for a 7 5/8."
Sexson said of the injury, "Ridiculous."
I guess some people will do anything to try and get out of playing for the Brewers.
I think the difference here is the caliber of those teams only a few games out: I have no doubt that LA could run off a winning streak if San Fran or 'Zona decided to tank, but I don't think the same would happen with the Brewers.
