Pete Mackanin fined every player one whole dollar
Mack is serious when he sets clubhouse rules. If a player breaks one of those rules, everyone’s gotta pay. And Maikel Franco broke one of those rules by staring into the sun. PETE MACKANIN IS A TYRANT. Just kidding. Franco lost a popup in the sun, which wouldn’t have happened if he’d put his sunglasses on his face instead of on the brim of his hat. Undoubtedly the best part of this story is the roleplay that Andres Blanco did with Franco as the reporters came to ask questions.
