With Bautista on the DL, the Blue Jays debuted Anthony Gose last night. The only thing missing was a clock on the chain he was wearing. We'll see if he gets a memo from MLB.

Back in first place! Oddly enough, the Tigers also returned to first place exactly one year ago today and never looked back. I think the White Sox will hang around, but this is the Tigers division to win with the way they are finding their stride lately. Four straight excellent starts from the rotation and the offense is coming up some with serious clutch hitting.

This is the team we all expected back in April. Better a little late than never.

Tigers acquire SP Annibal Sanchez and IF Omar Infante for P Jacob Turner, C Rob Brantly, and P Brian Flynn.

Turner is still not MLB-ready, as we've seen in his 2 starts this year. It was nice to see him shut down the White Sox, but I am more concerned with the Rangers, Yankees, and Angels - and Turner won't shut down any of them. Infante is exactly what we need to upgrade the 2B position.

I like the move for Anibal Sanchez, he's a very solid pitcher and puts up respectable strikeout numbers. On a better team like the Tigers he has the potential to shine.

Programs sell well at Blue Jays games.

A guy named Gretzky took in the get-away game in Seattle yesterday. Got to shake Jeter's hand.

Rumour has it he's there to talk to the Bellevue Group, regarding an NHL team.

A's being tied with the Angels for the AL Wild Card for now. Woot woot. I'm impressed with the A's...

The Cespedes/Reddick combo has been brilliant for that team this season. (and my fantasy team :P)

They are gonna be better once McCarthy comes back from the DL, he's quietly among the best pitchers in baseball.

I did see Gretzky at that Mariners game during highlights, but I had no idea he was there to promote hockey in Seattle. It's definitely an interesting idea.

White Sox pick up Francisco Liriano. Thank you White Sox. I can't wait for him to cost you games.

Delmon Young should never, ever be hitting 5th in the major leagues. If he's going to be on the team and not remotely producing, at least bat him 7th or lower so he isn't ruining the best 3-4 combination in baseball.

Minimal power, doesn't drive in runs, never walks and is horrible with RISP. Delmon is a DH and he doesn't even do any hitting.

Oswalt worked out great :lol:

I just subscribed to MLB.tv through Xbox live, now I get every game every night broadcast in HD. Very cool, i've been addicted since I got it.
