Dodgers’ Hill: President’s focus should be on nation
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill didn't appreciate President Donald Trump's tweet criticizing manager Dave Roberts for taking him out of Game 4.
Hill told reporters on Sunday that he believes the president's focus should be elsewhere.
"There was a mass shooting yesterday," the pitcher said. "The focus, in my opinion, of the president is to be on the country, and not on moves that are made in a World Series game."

"He's got two pitches!" the Boston Red Sox ace hollered to his left among a stream of profanities, referring to Los Angeles Dodgers starter Rich Hill.
Then he shouted to his right.
And then straight ahead, pointing with his pitching hand and extending his ring and middle fingers for emphasis.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — In the early going, Rich Hill was perfect. Only he didn't feel that way.
He didn't like the way the ball was coming out of his hand, even though he wasn't letting anyone on base.
"Around the third inning, the feel started coming around," Hill said. "The big thing was getting ahead and throwing strikes."

Declaration of independents: Hill rises, makes Series start
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Out of the majors, Rich Hill never believed he was out of chances. It only looked that way.
Unwanted by a single big league organization, and already in his mid-30s, Hill found himself pitching for the Long Island Ducks in the summer of 2015.
Yep, the same guy who will be starting Game 2 of the World Series for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night.
"A couple years ago, I was using a bucket in independent ball as a toilet," he recalled last weekend.
