In Tuesday's Hot Clicks, we examine why Buster Posey is a bad teammate and feature the lovely Kayla Fitz.
Buster Posey is a bad teammate
In 2014, Bryce Harper hit two home runs off Hunter Strickland in the NLDS. On Monday, Strickland got his revenge by drilling Harper in the leg, and then punching the Nats star when he charged the mound. It was actually a really good baseball fight (though Harper's batting helmet throw needs work). There is one lingering question: Why didn't Buster Posey do anything to stop Harper?
Remembering Frank Deford
Frank Deford passed away yesterday at age 78. The legendary writer first joined SI in 1962 and penned dozens of memorable stories (his Jimmy Connors profile is my favorite). Many writers took to Twitter to express condolences while some of SI's top authors also shared their thoughts on the passing of a legend.
Did ESPN photoshop Tiger Woods' mugshot (and fix his hair)?
Lovely Lady of the Day
I met Kayla Fitz at the SI Swimsuit casting a couple weeks ago and was smitten. I really hope to see her in the issue next year. She is today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery).
Think before tweeting
I wouldn't say I feel bad for Terry Frei -- his Indy 500 tweet was tone deaf and something he should've kept to himself -- but it does suck that he lost his job because of it.
Counterfeit Chinese beer is really gross
I love Budweiser. It's as good as beer gets (I also could use a Hot Clicks sponsor ... hint hint), but Chinese counterfeit Budwesier ... that's a hard pass.
