    Like we said earlier today: the so-called snubs have a way of working themselves out.

    It’s Herschel “Boog” Powell. Who, as an outfielder, has three home runs in 174 minor league games, so that nickname had better be ironic.

  4. Guy sues ESPN for making fun of him when he fell asleep at a Yankees game

    Not that anyone was aware of this before. Of course now that he’s sued we know all about this guy.

    Come for the conversation, stay to admire the new poster I have up behind me in my little basement studio. Yes, I realize it’s crooked.

    There are eight days until the All-Star Game. Almost all of these “snubs” will work themselves out.

  7. There will be self-serve beer machines at the All-Star Game

    Jul 7, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT


    I have seen the future of gettin’ beers at ballparks. And it’s name is DraftServ

  8. Pete Rose: “I’m a firm believer that baseball is a better sport if I’m in it”

    I feel like a list of “Pete Rose’s Firm Beliefs” would be a pretty fun read. I mean, after “always hit in 16″ I’m not sure what they’d be, but still.

  9. Minor leaguer hits a walkoff homer, then proposes to his girlfriend

    Jul 7, 2014, 11:03 AM EDT

  11. Update: It was Red Hot on David Price’s arm last night

    Jul 7, 2014, 8:24 AM EDT

    David Price arm

    Could be sweat + rosin. Could be nothing. But it’s interesting.

  12. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 7, 2014, 5:00 AM EDT

    Corey Kluber

    It’s Corey Kluber’s world. We’re all just living in it. We had no idea we were, though, because most of us don’t pay a heck of a lot of attention to Corey Kluber. Like, how are we supposed to know it’s his world anyway? What are we, psychic? Put up a sign.

  13. The Giants activate Brandon Belt

    The reeling Giants get one of their best bats back

  14. A Washington Nationals radio guy explains how, when you die, your cat will eat you.

    I’m curious to see how he does up in the Rocky Mountains.

  16. Zack Greinke helped the Dodgers starting pitchers set a record yesterday

    Jul 4, 2014, 10:00 AM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    The Dodgers starters strike out more batters than almost everyone else. They walk fewer than everyone else. That’s a pretty good way to live life.

  17. A strange replay in Oakland reveals a big hole in the replay rule

    Jul 4, 2014, 9:04 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 9.03.24 AM

    Baseball needs to make an immediate fix to prevent a situation like the one which occurred in Oakland yesterday from happening again.

  19. The Rays’ lineup today starts off 8-6-7-5-3-0-9

    Jul 3, 2014, 4:30 PM EDT

  20. Wait, baseball may not be dying, you guys

    Jul 3, 2014, 1:30 PM EDT


    You can smoke your way on to the 40-man roster. But you had better not smoke once you’re DFA’d off of it.
