Jose Abreu is back, Clayton Kershaw withstood his return and I made a sobering discovery about “Billy Madison.”

Eight wins in a row have the Blue Jays jumping for joy.

At least a Pirates hitter is leading the majors in something.

The Brewers are a major-league best 8-2 to begin the young season.
