Well, that’s something you don’t see every day.

Drew Butera can’t really hit. Many of the guys in the Dodgers’ pen can’t really pitch. This seems like a classic “you got you chocolate in my peanut butter” moment.

Giancarlo Stanton does Giancarlo Stanton things.

If a pitcher has a foreign substance on his hand and no one is there to complain about it, does it still raise a stink?

Does winning on Opening Day mean anything? I dunno, ask Oakland and Seattle.

According to Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun Sentinel, the Marlins will be contacting the league office after the Red Sox declined to bring any of their established regulars to Palm Beach for Thursday’s spring training game. While teams are supposed to bring at least four “regulars” to road spring games, the rule has always…

Marcell Ozuna was demoted to Triple-A earlier this week when the Marlins decided to shake up their outfield, but it turns out he was actually injured and will be placed on the disabled list instead. Ozuna has been diagnosed with a torn ligament in his left thumb and is slated to undergo season-ending surgery tomorrow.…

Most teams would feel embarrassed after getting shut out in an entire series the way the Marlins were by the Brewers. The Marlins, though, seem more impervious to public sentiment than most, so it wouldn’t have been shocking if they just stood pat and hoped to bounce back they way they seemed to throughout June…

Stephen Strasburg entered last night’s action having allowed seven earned runs combined over his last four starts. So of course he gave up a career-high seven earned runs over just two innings in an 8-3 loss to the last-place Marlins. Baseball, man. After being handed a quick 3-0 lead, Strasburg really struggled with his control…

Yankees 4, Rangers 3: Walkoff homer for Ichiro? Well shut my mouth. Wait, what? Well jeez, Brian, it’s just an expression. You don’t have to agree so emphatically and profanely. Angels 14, Tigers 8: Well that fifth inning got out of a hand in a hurry. Rick Porcello was beaten around for seven runs on…

Marlins rookie outfielder Marcell Ozuna had a big game yesterday, going 2-for-4 with a stolen base while driving in the go-ahead run and throwing out a runner on the bases. And afterward he explained the secret to his success: In-N-Out Burger. Via Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald: Ozuna contended afterward that he didn’t eat…

Mets 4, Braves 3: Good news: two solo homers for David Wright and five scoreless innings from the bullpen. Bad news: The reason the pen was needed for five innings is that Jon Neise had to leave the game with shoulder problems. Braves news: ugh, you guys have looked positively crappy of late. Tigers 4,…

After missing the past six weeks with a strained hamstring Giancarlo Stanton is off the disabled list and will be in the Marlins’ lineup tonight against the Brewers.

Phillies 7, Brewers 5: Dom Brown homered and tripled and drove in four while Cliff Lee struck out 11 in seven and two-thirds. Philly is only one game behind the Nats right now, you guys. Why? Because … Braves 6, Nationals 3: … the Nats dropped two of three to Atlanta, with B.J. Upton of…

The Mets had Matt Harvey on the mound today and they got three homers for the offense. That should be a sure recipe to snap a little two-game losing streak, right? No, not even close. The Mets blew a 6-4 lead as the bullpen gave up seven runs in three innings Sunday in an 11-6…
