    Has anybody else noticed the number of arm injuries the Ranger pitchers are having since Nolan Ryan was being talked about by the sports MSM as some kind of pitching guru? My point is that even though Ryan might know pitching, his method/strategy is still prone to pitching injuries just like any other baseball club.
    Please fire Cashman, so some Yankee fans can have hope again.

    This nugget almost does deserve its own thread...

    After opening the season with a payroll of about $61 million, the Astros have jettisoned veterans earning a combined $49 million. Former Red Sox infielder Jed Lowrie, at $1.15 million, is Houstonís highest-paid player.

    Didn't they just trade for Francisco Cordero?

    Apparently the Rangers and Phillies are discussing Lee.

    Jered Weaver's current winning percentage would be the third best all-time with at least 0.1 decisions per team game. It would be the best since Roy Face in 1959 which is the record. R.A. Dickey's current winning percentage would be tied for thirteenth all-time and would break David Cone's Mets record.

    A's ship Kurt Suzuki and cash to the Nat's for A-ball catcher.

    Not that exciting but I think with BArton in AAA that makes Cliff Pennington (on teh DL I think) the longest tenured A having made his debut for the Green & Gold way back in August 2008.

    Maybe the Astros have a shorter tenured lonest tenured player?

    What are the Odds?!

    BJ & Justin Upton both hit their 100th career homeruns tonight, to put their respective teams up 1-0. They'd also hit their 99ths the same night....http://tracking.si.com/2012/08/04/bj...reer-home-run/

    The Phillies' National League record 257 game sellout streak ended with tonight's game against the Braves. The streak began on July 7, 2009 vs. Cincinnati.

    Time for Red Sox fans to wake up and end their sellout streak and send a message to a front office that is convinced the fans will still show up no matter how poorly the team plays.

    That would work except their fans will still show up no matter how poorly the team plays.

    I'd call you out for jinxing it, but then I'd be held responsible for the Holocaust.

    Woman gets rejected for various jobs with the Padres on 30 different occasions. One day they invite her to attend a job fair they're hosting, for the price of $495. She rejects them back:
