You had to respect the rules.“I probably couldn’t tell you one player who liked wearing black boots, but it was the rule and something accustomed to every academy player.“If someone tried to come out in red boots it’s like ‘you’re no different to any of us so get your black boots back on until you’ve earned the right to wear coloured boots’.“You always wear black boots, you always turn up to meetings on time, you always go to school, everybody does the same thing.“There are no big egos, there’s no young kids coming in wearing jewellery and looking a bit flash, that’s not the case at this club.“If a young player was doing that, I’d certainly be one to say something, the same with other boys in the first-team and the manager as well.” • by RotoWire Staff

LSU outfielder Raph Rhymes set a school record by hitting .431 last year, a performance that earned him SEC Player of the Year and First-Team All-American honors. On Thursday he hit an inside-the-park homer thanks to some shoddy outfield defense, but he had to go through the catcher first:

After 23 games, Moore is hitting a disappointing .145 with one home run.

“Tyler Moore is in a little bit of a funk, he had been kind of all year,” manager Davey Johnson said, per .com. “He hasn’t been himself. We are going to try to get him more at-bats to get him in a groove.”

Hitting coach Rick Eckstein said Moore is missing on too many fastballs, which he added is also a problem for Danny Espinosa, who is also off to a slow start.

“They have to get back on the fastball,” Eckstein said. “You can’t be in between. …. When you are facing guys as tough as Kershaw, you are not going to get too many pitches that are over the heart of the plate. The breaking stuff, when it’s down in the zone, it has late sharp bite on it. It’s pretty good. You have to get on the fastball. Anytime you are sitting in between, you are late on the heater and early in the off speed. You have to get back on the heater.”
