Tropicana Field was actually built for the White Sox. Chicago came through on a stadium deal at the last minute though. 

Ah, well I knew the stadium was built back in the 80s in hopes of getting a team.

Yet he failed to put together a group to buy the Thrashers to keep them in Atlanta despite saying he wanted them to stay and did everything he could to make it happen.

Glavine has teamed with Tagg Romney in his bid. Tagg is the son of politician Mitt Romney. Mitt is not involved in the bid.

No team has ever had two RPs with 90+ appearances. The Mets are on pace to have 4 guys eclipse 90.

Jays still struggling. They dropped to 3-12 and still hitting just .218. They've only scored 45 runs. That's only more than KC who has 41.

Reports this morning that Francisco Lindor turned down an extension offer of "nearly $100M" from Cleveland. Lindor's agent didn't confirm or deny but said they take it on a year by year basis and don't draw lines in the sand.

Wainwright might have nothing left as a pitcher but his bat is still going. He's 2-for-2 with a HR and 4 RBI tonight. It's only in the 4th inning

The A's unveiled a new slogan "Rooted in Oakland" they also said they'll reveal a new ballpark site in Oakland later this year. No relocation for the A's. Now the Rays just have to find a place and MLB can move forward with expansion.

Rangers released Josh Hamilton. He injured his right knee while rehabbing his left knee. He will need surgery. I think it's time Hamilton called it a career.

Just heard something really cool from Smoltzie. He's talking about how to keep baserunners from stealing again him. He said since he couldn't see the baserunner so he would look at Chipper and if Chipper flexed his glove at him then he would throw over.

They should've let Joey Bats walk and kept Encarnacion

Yep, Glavine said he won't demand the GM job but said "he knows the game pretty well". He added he doesn't know the business side that well so it definitely sounds like he wants to be involved in roster decisions.
