Brewers pitcher questions ethics of being cut right before surgery

The dream of making the show turned into a nightmare rather quickly for Luke Barker. Barker was one of those stories you basically only see in baseball. At 30 years old, he made his MLB debut for the Brewers this past June, appearing in three games, giving up five earned runs in four innings. He was sent back down to Triple-A Nashville and sprained his UCL in his pitching arm in late June. Ultimately, the decision was made for him to get Tommy John surgery. Because the MLB trade deadline just happened and the Brewers swapped star closer Josh Hader for several...

Lawyer: Arbery shooter fears he'll be killed in state prison

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — The white man who fatally shot Ahmaud Arbery after chasing the running Black man in a Georgia neighborhood says he fears he will be killed by fellow inmates if he’s sent to a state prison to serve a life sentence for murder. Travis McMichael, 36, faces sentencing Monday in U.S. District Court after his conviction on federal hate crime charges in February. His defense attorney filed a legal motion Thursday asking the judge to keep McMichael in federal custody. Attorney Amy Lee Copeland argued McMichael has received “hundreds of threats” and won’t be safe in a Georgia state prison system that is under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department amid concerns about violence between inmates. On Feb. 23, 2020, McMichael and his father, Greg McMichael, armed themselves with guns and jumped in a pickup truck to chase Arbery after he ran past their home just outside the port city of Brunswick. A neighbor, William “Roddie” Bryan, joined the chase in his own truck and recorded cellphone video of Travis McMichael blasting Arbery with a shotgun.
