    NBC Sports Network

    Tonight’s Caught Looking, airing at 9 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network, goes behind the scenes at last weekend’s Red-Cardinals series. Spoiler alert! The Cards took two of three.

  7. The Reds are just toying with the rest of the league

    Aug 29, 2012, 6:52 PM EDT

    Miguel Cairo

    That’s my feeling anyway. Manager Dusty Baker went so far as to start Miguel Cairo at first base Wednesday, yet the Reds beat the Diamondbacks 6-2 to complete a three-game sweep in Arizona. Cairo, who entered the game with a .168/.198/.264 line in 125 at-bats this season, went 0-for-4. It should be noted that this…

    Stephen Strasburg

    Major League Baseball celebrated Otherwise Good Teams Get Shut Out Night last night. It was quite festive. Marlins 9, Nationals 0: Look, maybe this will start a conversation no one thinks we’d ever have about an ace pitcher on a first place team, but maybe the Nationals should consider shutting Stephen Strasburg down (5 IP,…
