Crazy move by Andy Green but one that makes perfect sense. Sent up a left-handed pinch-hitter against a lefty pitcher to keep the lefty pitcher in the game. Never seen that move done before.

Former Brave Mallex Smith has been benched in Seattle. Mariners say Mallex has made continued mental mistakes on the field and running the bases. Mariners had a team meeting on the issue and Mallex immediately had a mental mistake that night. He'll now ride the bench.

He was sent down to the minors earlier this season because he wasn't playing well. The trade to Seattle has been disastrous for him.

The Rays beat the Tigers 1-0 in 13 innings. But here's what makes that special, the Rays pitching staff recorded 24 strikeouts and 0 walks. Must be nice to have a stellar pitching staff that doesn't give away wins because of walks.

Kimbrel tonight in his first 5 pitches: HR and HBP. This is not the same guy we all loved back in the day

There's a reason teams refused to give him a mega deal like Chapman got.

Gausman hasnt been that bad as a RP. He had 1 bad outing and another where he walked 2 but hes limited the damage.

You mean the one we should have spent a **** load on and would have been the single handed savior of the bullpen according to some?  :lol:

Former players are the center of huge drug ring in the Dominican. Octavio Dotel is in police custody and the DR police are searching for Luis Castillo. Dotel and Castillo allegedly became key members of a large gang involved in trafficking. Dotel also had 4 cars seized.

If I pitched that as a movie, I'd get laughed out of the room for the story being unbelievable.
