    Arizona Diamondbacks v Washington Nationals

    The Nats win the close ones. They win the not-so-close ones. They win the tame ones. And last night, they won a wild one.

    Braves right fielder Jason Heyward left this afternoon’s game what the team is calling lower back soreness.

  4. Where have all the superstar left-handed hitters gone?

    Robinson Cano

    Last night’s Home Run Derby included just one left-handed hitter (Justin Morneau) among the eight contestants and tonight’s All-Star game will feature only two left-handed hitters (Chase Utley, Robinson Cano) among the 18 starters.

  5. Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera and the silent majority

    Nelson Cruz could be elected to the All-Star Game. Melky Cabrera and Ryan Braun, too. Shouldn’t the public be more upset about this?

  6. Stephen Strasburg throws . . . someone under the bus

    It’s hard to say who. Maybe himself?

  7. The Braves are considering calling up Christian Bethancourt

    Jun 16, 2014, 10:32 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2014-06-16 at 10.31.22 AM

    He’s a catcher. And Evan Gattis’ bat is essential. So that would make Gattis an outfielder. At least in name.

  8. Buster Posey takes some heat after an interesting play at the plate

    Does the Giants catcher need to be more aggressive behind the plate?

  12. Jeff Samardzija says he wants a big-money contract to help future players

    Jeff Samardzija

    Jeff Samardzija unselfishly wants to get paid. It’s not as crazy as it sounds.

    I saw Captain America last night. It was way better than the first few innings of the Tigers-Dodgers game.

    Bochy replay

    Major League Baseball wanted a challenge system for replay. Everyone except Major League Baseball said a challenge system would be flawed and would lead to problems. The Giants-Dbacks game last night showed us exactly what those problems are.

    LAKE BUENA VISTA — I’ve done a good job so far today not cheering in the press box. Kris Medlen struck a dude out looking. Evan Gattis just thew out a would-be base stealer. Both of those things are usually worth at least a fist-pump from me when watching a game but I’ve been totally…

    Feb 15, 2014, 3:01 PM EDT

    Jason Heyward AP

    Braves outfielder Jason Heyward wore a protective guard on his helmet after returning from a broken jaw last season and Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that he’ll continue to wear it in 2014.

    Feb 5, 2014, 9:51 AM EDT

    Jason Heyward

They separately agreed to a two-year, $13.3 million deal with Jason Heyward, buying out his last two years of arbitration. Today Jon Morosi draws a conclusion from that: You could have described this as the Braves committing multiyear contracts to a pair…
