Ratto cracks me up.
In defense of Yost.
If Marrero can just hit like an average shortstop, he’ll be a very, very good player.
Edit: Link fixed, Jim.
Micro analysis in real time.
Aaron Judge is one big outfielder.
Will the Giants and Ryan Vogelsong ensure this series goes at least six, or will the Royals and Jason Vargas move themselves to just one win away from eternal glory?

None of us are invincible.
Buster Olney on Twitter: “Sources: Manager Joe Maddon has exercised an opt-out clause in his contract and is leaving the Tampa Bay Rays immediately.”
Wow! That’s a surprise.
It takes more than talent to get to the big leagues. Warning: TINSTAAPP.

Sabermetrics won! Sabermetrics won!
Hunter Strickland is ruining baseball for everyone.
It’s Jeremy Guthrie’s day.
Well, everybody but Hunter Strickland.
Adam Dunn didn’t invent this approach. It wasn’t a good approach. I followed Dunn throughout his career. Dunn could have been a better hitter if he was more aggressive within the strikezone. I witnessed countless at bats where Dunn passed up a perfectly good pitch and ended up either taking a called strike or whiffed on a worse pitch later in the at bat. Dunn’s method sucked.
The Series turns to San Francisco in Game 3. The Royals send Jeremy Guthrie, the Giants send Tim Hudson. 8 PM. FOX.

The Freak is feeling better.
Knowing Hunter Pence is loving Hunter Pence.
I was wondering when we’d see The Freak. I guess that’s all we are going to get.
Not many surprises, but Yoenis Cespedes?
