Grant: Rangers turn to Cole Hamels for ALDS Game 5, who’s in a position he’s never been | Dallas Morning News
His team won all four games. You’ll have to read the article to get the specifics.
Don’t have time to read this at the moment but it looks interesting.
These guys have some real special balls.
This is good news for Braves fans but bad news for Fangraphs and prospect junkied like me. Good luck, Kiley!

Sorry again for the inconvenience.

It was beautiful.
One crazy inning.
To be fair, Terrance Gore never made a “football move.”
It’s evident Harold has never seen Greg K man the hot corner in Central Park.
I guess he’s not a team player.
If only ONE player gets hurt, The rules need to be changed!
Lee Smith (no, the other one) weighs in:
Another big game today. Playoff baseball is the best.
Congressman Lou Barletta, who once tried out for the Cincinnati Reds, was at the game with his grandson. He told the team about his own baseball background as they ate pizza slices on the dais in a House hearing room, and offered a few words of encouragement regarding their future plans.
“If you don’t make it as a professional ball player, you can always fall back on being a congressman,” Barletta quipped.

Serve up justice? How overwrought and unhinged can a columnist get?
Jon Weisman makes some good points.
Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Nelson Cruz, Carlos Gonzalez, and Albert Pujols Combine to Set the Major League Record For Most Players to Finish a Season With 40 or More Home Runs and Less Than 100 RBIs
With the trend over the last several seasons showing a rise in strikeouts, drops in batting average, OBP, and runs scored, along with a sustained focus on power it is likely seasons of 40 or more home runs with less than 100 RBI may become more common. In fact, Pujols was the only one of the five sluggers to complete the odd feat who was not a regular strikeout victim. What’s more, none of the five 40 or more home run/sub-100 RBI seasons produced in 2015 were abbreviated by injury or had any ...Read More...
