Jake Taylor's Major League advice for Matt Harvey

While Matt Harvey isn't out there tanking games for the New York Mets, there has been quite a buzz about the potential decision spurned on by his agent Scott Boras, and Dr. James Andrews to force the Mets shut him down for the rest of the season when he reaches his 180 inning limit. As the Mets are approaching the playoffs and a potential run at the World Series, you can only wonder if one of the veterans will be pulling him aside in the locker room and giving him a talk ala Jake Taylor did to Roger Dorn in Major League.

James Gammon (manager Lou Brown from Major League) dies at 70

Fan favorite James Gammon, who played the seasoned manager Lou Brown in the classic Major League died Friday from cancer at the age of 70 in California.

Gammon mastered the gravelly voiced tobacco chewing manager to perfectly compliment Charlie Sheen, Corbin Bernsen, and Wesley Snipes' eccentric personalities. His weathered veteran persona was just the leader that rag-tag group needed to go from worst to first. 

One of Major League's legacies over the past two decades has been its often-quoted one-liners. While many reach for lines from Bob Uecker's "Harry Doyle" character, it was Gammon's memorable, "You may run like Hayes, but you hit like s--t," zing to Snipes' "Willie Mays Hayes" that continues to get laughs with multiple generations.
