Mike Napoli stole home. Though, really, we should call what he did something else. Also: are we at “Peak Brandon” in Major League Baseball?

On HBT Daily yesterday I said Johnny Cueto would give up more than two runs in a game before Masahiro Tanaka got his first loss. Both happened yesterday, but I’m pretty sure the Nats got their third run off Cueto before the Yankees-Cubs game ended, so I’m gonna claim victory.

Baseball is on pace for more shutouts this year than any season in the history of the game. But the problem isn’t the lack of scoring. It’s the lack of action.

YOU get a walkoff! And YOU get a walkoff! And YOU get a walkoff!

Pitching porn in Atlanta. Graphic, hard core pitching porn.

Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann signed a two-year, $24 million deal to avoid arbitration back in January.

The guy tells it like it is. Sometimes when he shouldn’t. But you can pretty much expect him to go beyond the cliches before most guys do, and he did so last night after the Reds’ loss to the Pirates: “We choked. I don’t care how my teammates feel about what I am saying now,…
