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.

A MLB rule, from the new CBA, that affected the re-sign of Cole Hamels and will affect other potential deals.

Much like Nick Lidstrom, it's very surprising when Justin Verlander shows he's human.

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.

Only three wins in New York's last 11 games; six of those were by one stinking run, the other two by two.

I was wondering when five runs in the first inning wasn't enough.
Are there two AJ Burnett's?

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.

Worked out better than Dempster. So glad Detroit avoided him, a mediocre arm having a good year gets exposed in his first game in the AL.

Nice to see the offense wake up last night. Hopefully they turn the corner at some point.

Adding Anibal was the right move for the Tigers.

Best game of the season yesterday and one of the best I have ever seen as a Tigers fan. The most improbable comeback against a closer the Tigers hadn't hit a lick off all season. Jackson and Infante were incredible and what else is there to say about Cabrera? You knew something special was going to happen when he got to the plate in that situation.

Love sweeping the Indians too after the fits they had given the Tigers until this weekend. Get them out of the Central race and focus on catching the White Sox now.
