Would not have bet a lot of money on Upton being able to catch up to a Rodriguez fastball.

According to the Blue Jays' depth chart, the team has 3 starting pitchers and 11 pitchers available from the bullpen.

Ramon Ortiz is listed twice and Josh Johnson is about to become starter #4, but it's still a sign that things aren't going well in Toronto.

Welcome to what the Cardinals have been having for the past few years.

Oh, yeah. I weep for the ####### Cardinals and their World Series two long years ago.

Just when I thought these ####### ######## were going start playing at least .500 ball, they ####### dive right back into the ####### dumpster again. #### these guys. I ####### hate this #### team. Bunch of ############# #### bags.

If your team gets a Grans Slam hit against you, in the absence of other data, how often do you go on to lose that game?

Not the exact answer, but in 2012, teams that gave up a grand slam were losing immediately afterwards 93 times out of 104 GS surrendered. Of the 93, 51 were surrendered by teams already trailing. Teams that had been tied or leading immediate before giving up the GS fell behind their opponent 42 out of 53 times.
