So teams can still claim guys who were DFA right??

Waiver process is unchanged. You just cant trade players that clear waivers anymore. Brach will either have to accept a AAA role or ask for his release if he clears. If a player is claimed it's normal procedure, claiming team gets your rights.

I know he strikes out too much, but I can absolutely see Demeritte being one of those guys who surprises on the major league level. Whenever he's struggled in the minors, he's worked his way through it. Perseverance is that x-factor in pro sports.

If he keeps his K% to ~25% like he has this season he'll be fine because he draws walks and hits dingerz. Really happy he's getting an opportunity.

Houston just has this thing figured out. Aaron Sanchez had a 6.07 with Toronto and had a 7.49 ERA over his last 17 starts. Of course he goes to Houston in a trade and immediately throws a no hitter.

6 innings of a no-hitter to be correct.

" The Cubs placed closer Craig Kimbrel on the IL with right knee inflammation."

It's a shame. After a rough start, he'd had 10 scoreless appearances out of his last 11. 

Was giving up a ton of base runners though. WHIP of almost 1.50.

Playoff schedule is set. NLDS begins on October 3rd. Times are TBD but both start on the 3rd. TBS will carry the NL playoffs this year.

TBS needs to carry more games.  I miss the old days of the Braves and Hawks on TBS.  One of the worst things to happen to Atlanta sports is Ted selling the Braves and Hawks...:(

Boxberger was a FA last winter. Signed with KC, released by them and signed by the Nats.

I meant Royals because I questioned early in the season him not being given a chance to close for them when they couldn't find a closer.
