As far as Darvish somehow tipping pitches during the World Series, remember there has been a change in coaching in Chicago. If anyone can improve this, it's Jim Hickey, reunited this year with Joe Maddon. Long-term contracts aren't generally a good idea for a team unless there are mechanisms like front-loading, incentives, etc but I also understand Darvish signed for about $40M less than he was looking for. This must have worked both ways.

not yesterday for Washington/Cincinnati, which got postponed a day due to inclement weather. Scherzer struck out 10, including 7 in a row, looking towards 3rd Cy Young award season in a row. Great start for that. cool

I just heard about this. RIP to one of my childhood baseball heroes:

In memory of Rusty Staub, one of the most underrated players in baseball history

Best,

Geoff

Le Grand Orange. As good a player as Rusty was, he was an even better human being.

My Braves are in 1st place, with the best record in the National League! Who woulda thunk it? Second baseman Ozzie Albies is tied for the major league lead in homers, and Nick Markakis is leading the league in hitting.

Oh happy day!

Happy for you, Synthaholic. Let's see where we are 4 months from now, that's what is important. wink

And Albies does it again tonight, hitting a triple for his Major League-leading 30th extra-base hit, and being driven home by Ronald Acuna, Jr.

They are the two youngest position players in MLB.

Nobody thought the Braves would finish higher than 5th in their division this year. Only the Yankees and Red Sox have better records.
