    Nationals' Strasburg pitches in the rain during the second inning of their MLB game against Braves in Washington

    Nationals 4, Braves 1: I have been arguing against a Stephen Strasburg shutdown for a while now, but allow me to say that if those dudes are really gonna do that, I wish they would have done it before last night. Strasburg struck out ten in six innings, allowing a single run and winning his…

    James McDonald AP

He hit rock bottom last night against the Padres, giving up a season-high seven runs over just 4 1/3 innings as part of an eventual 9-8 loss. McDonald actually cruised through…

    Rangers celebrate

    One person’s thoughts on who made out best and worst at the trade deadline.

    The Yankees, Orioles, Indians, A’s and Pirates are among the teams with interest in acquiring Padres third baseman Chase Headley. But there probably won’t be any action on that front this summer.

    Francisco Rodriguez

    Phillies 7, Brewers 6: It’s hard to imagine a more demoralizing series than the one the Brewers just experienced. In all three games they fell victim to last inning rallies. This one after their own rally brought them back from a 5-1 deficit, tied with a Ryan Braun homer in the eighth. Then they take…

    Chase Headley AP

    The Yankees have lost their third baseman for 6-8 weeks. Ramiro Pena is not the long term answer.

    Minnesota Twins v New York Yankees

    Twins 6, Yankees 5: Justin Morneau hit two homers. That’s four homers in six games, which hopefully means that Morneau is back to his mashing ways.
