    Jamie Moyer throwing

    I’d put the chances at the 50 year-old Jamie Moyer actually coming  back as a knuckleballer at the closest thing to zero there is without actually being Jamie Moyer and knowing otherwise, but this story from Stan Hochman of the Philadelphia Daily News is fun and makes for good day dreams. Here’s what the co-author…

    Jon Lester

    It’s cool and crisp here in America’s Heartland and there were some games last night that felt like the playoffs. Can we please just skip September and move straight on into October?

    Brett Lawrie Reuters

    I could attempt to explain Brett Lawrie‘s barehanded gem last night against the Royals, but you are better off watching and enjoying it for yourself. Trust me on this one. Now that’s some improvisation. Sure, we probably wouldn’t have been talking about this play if someone speedier than Billy Butler was running, but that doesn’t…

    Aug 27, 2013, 11:32 AM EDT

    Nelson Cruz

    A couple of weeks ago Pedro Gomez passed along some word he was hearing that it was “highly unlikely” that the Rangers would activate Nelson Cruz for the postseason, choosing instead to exile him, Melky Cabrera-style.  In his notes column today Ken Rosenthal reports that, no, that’s not the plan: Suspended Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz recently spent…

    The Blue Jays are just going through the paces right now. Absent Jose Bautista, they’ve lost seven in a row and fallen to 57-73 on the season.

    Gabe Kapler

    Everyone — and I mean everyone — should read Gabe Kapler’s essay about his decision not to use PEDs and his views on speculation about PED-using players over at Baseball Prospectus. It is easily the best take I’ve seen on the matter. For PED hawks, there is an extremely useful lesson about the assumptions we…
