Good to have Avila, but Contreras has been carrying a team that just lost a series to the sad-sack Giants.

Too bad they didn't do something different with their cap. I love the Twins ballcap.



Fuck the wild card - let's take the division!

Houston should be a fun team to watch. The White Sox won tonight and swept them and you have two Astro players who have publicly criticized management for doing nothing at the deadline.

Yu Darvish wins again and strikes out 10 again in the win. He's never thrown a pitch without the lead as a Dodger.

The last time the Dodgers lost a series? June 5-7 they dropped the first two to the Nationals.

Darvish is making himself a lot of money right now.

Willson Contreras out 4-6 weeks so the Cubs will try to get into the playoffs without him.

Cards overcome some 9th inning drama to win their 8th straight.

And unless the Cubs mount a late inning comeback, they'll find themselves tied for the division lead.

Bryce Harper looks like he injured his knee, didn't look good.

He slipped on a wet base after a rain delay. Sucks. Hope he is okay. Even if the path to the WS is a lot easier for the Dodgers without him, that's not something I want to see.

And speaking of them, they just became the fastest NL team to ensure a winning record since the 1944 Cardinals. Still they were two games slower to 82 wins than the 2001 Mariners.

Harper with a bone bruise, but no ligament or tendon damage according to the Nats GM. Should be back for the playoffs.

I hate that guy with a passion, but I don't want to see him injured, especially like that. Glad to hear it is not serious.

They have to be the best run organization in MLB as they aren't a big market team like the Yankees and Redsox.

Can I ask how they consistently win without rebuilding? Do they scout different then other teams? Is it the Ownership? GM?

I'm jealous as a Phillies fan as whenever we have a sustained period of winning we go through years of losing and I wonder what is different in our model compared to the Cards?

Ok after losing three series in a row it was nice to go into AZ and take 2 out of 3 to win the series.
