No worries, mate. Somewhere, way, way below the Tigers who I grew up with, and the Reds who I worked for, and the Nationals, who used to be the Expos, my national league team growing up, is the Marlins.

Besides, it's in the league's best interest for them to turn it around. Let's do this.

Hopefully Zunino can be our guy at catcher down the road. I'm pleased with the pick and think he will be a good ball player in the MLB. Probably never a star, but he hits for power and can call a good game. Safe selection for the M's. I bet he is big league ready in no time.

SEATTLE -- Kevin Millwood and five relievers combined on the third no-hitter in Seattle Mariners history, a 1-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.

The no-hitter was the fourth in the majors this season, joining gems pitched by the Angels' Jered Weaver, the Mets' Johan Santana and White Sox right-hander Philip Humber, who threw a perfect game at Seattle in April.

Albert Pujols is turning his numbers around.

He's up to a .254 average with 9 HRs and 36 RBIs.

Doesn't seem all that special, but it's impressive after the amazingly slow start he had to the season.

Mike Trout is also living up to his billing this year....and he is still only 20 years old.

It's been a frustrating season to this point for sure.

I'm not sure what the answers are....they are flawed defensively, have had numerous injuries, and have left way too many men on base.

Frustrating does not even begin to describe. Before last night, the hadn't scored more than 4 runs in two weeks. They've only done it 5 times in the past month. For an offense with Jackson, Cabrera, Fielder and Young, that's not acceptable.

Their pitching has been awful outside of Verlander and Fister. Scherzer has been a disappointment, and so has Porcello. Middle relief is a joke, and Benoit and Valverde are not performing well enough to lift up either the starters or the middle relief.

Someone needs to be held accountable, and I think Leyland and the hitting and pitching coaches need to go. There was a stretch a week or so ago where Leyland got tossed in 3 separate games. Rod and Mario speak so much about how great he is at bringing the National League style of small ball to the American League...but ask yourself this: When was the last time he bunted a guy over into scoring position? Other than Jackson (and Berry who filled in for him), who on this team is a consistent base stealing threat? Where are the hit and runs we all assumed were going to be there? There is very little about Leyland's execution with his players that leads me to believe he can turn this team around. I don't know who else is out there, but I am to the point where I don't think Leyland or his staff is the answer.

Blow it up, IMO.

Chris Sale owns again.

I'm just hoping his throwing motion doesnt get him perpetually injured.

Dodgers gave Andre Ethier a ridiculous contract IMO, 5 years, $85 million.
A guy who has missed 20 games in 3 of the past 4 seasons, never had an OPS over .900(which is kind of the bar to me for sort of establishing a guy might be elite).
Plus, he is 30 and likely to not get better than what he is now. He's a good player, but wow.

ATLANTA -- Alex Rodriguez hit his 23rd career grand slam, matching Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig's record, and the New York Yankees scored six runs in the eighth inning to rally for a 6-4 win over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night.

"That's a clown question, bro" - Bryce Harper

That quote is going viral.

Kid is a 19 year old Mormon and doesn't drink....and by the way has impressed the heck out of me thus far.

He does it all and plays the game like it should be played.

He is going to be a lot of fun to watch over the years.

Does it all? Yes. Exciting to watch? Sure, I guess. Plays the game like it should be played? If you believe blowing a kiss to the pitcher after hitting a home run is the right way to play, then absolutely. There's a reason he was plunked by Hamels so early...his reputation preceded him.

I like good players, but I can't stand people who are not stewards of the game. Harper, IMO, is NOT a steward of the game at this point in his career. He is a little brat. He'll need to mature a whole hell of a lot more before I start rooting for him.

With regard to the video and the reporter's question...WTF? What kind of a question was that? (Answer: a clown question, duh) In an era where the internet allows us to find out every DUI and poor choice an athlete makes, why do you ask a stupid question like that? "Are you going to take advantage of Canada's younger drinking age and do you have a favorite type of beer?" Forget the guy is Mormon. Hell, forget he's a baseball player. He's 19 and an american citizen...how is he supposed to answer that question? "Bryce Harper's favorite beer to drink illegally is Schlitz; Film at 11"

I swear, I'll never know how some people earn the privilege to hold a microphone and talk to famous people for a living. It seems most of them are dumber than the people they interview.

When I say he plays the game the way it should be played, I'm talking about his hustle and effort he puts forth.

I didn't know he blew a kiss to the pitcher. I was impressed to his reaction on getting plunked....he took it like a rookie should and shrugged it off.

Harper is still a teen....I'm sure he's got some growing up to do....and he will.

If I was that good at 19, I would have probably been an arrogant prick that needed put in his place too.

BTW....you see that Bad News Bears inning by Detroit last night?

Someone said it best....3 of our 4 infielders look like they should be bouncers, not infielders.

It sucks because Miggy is a much better fielding first baseman than Prince....but Prince would scoff at playing DH.
