Mark Reynolds Receives His Golden Sombrero Crown from Cliff Lee

The LBS Golden Sombrero Club is beginning to discriminate in terms of membership. Garrett Jones of the Pirates takes one last week against the Rockies, the LBS presses are not halted.

For the nearly impossible 0-for-5 with five strikeouts, the player receives the rarefied Platinum Sombrero. Well…Read More

In a game where Clayton Kershaw strikes out 13, you can imagine at least one player would be threatening for the Golden Sombrero. On Wednesday night, the unfortunate victim was Fred Lewis.
