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?

The fella with the beard? The one who pitches for Los Angeles? Yeah, he’s pretty good.

Triple plays are fun. The Cardinals turned one on Friday night against the Blue Jays.

Mike Trout leads ‘em all, with Jose Bautista and Derek Jeter second and third. If you care about such things.

Your assumptions about Melky Cabrera and other PED guys are compelling. But not nearly as compelling as the numbers.

1-0 leads heading into the ninth were not safe last night.

Major League Baseball is totally fine with letting PED guys come back to the game and make a living after serving their time. People should probably accept that.

And Bautista knows a thing or two about fending off baseless allegations.

A ton of guys had multi-homer games yesterday. Ryan Braun led the pack with his three. I’m sure that won’t bother anyone.

Masahiro Tanaka was shaky early, but he bounced back to win in his major league debut last night against the Blue Jays.

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.

UPDATE: Well, it appears as though the Post has taken the pitch and the story down. Was it b.s.? Was it the next zillion-dollar media project and no one wants it seen yet? NO MAN CAN SAY! 3: 48 PM: Well, it’s not called that. It’s a book pitch, actually, which is simultaneously being shopped…
