    And the Red Sox now have Kyle Schwarber, the Nats' slugger. He's on the IL with a hamstring strain, but still, if he can come back...

    Basically, the Cubs, the Nats, the Rockies (soon), and the Diamondbacks all don't really exist in recognizable form.

    All this activity is all very exciting of course, but why is it that the teams I like, (Braves, Phillies, Angels, and the Mets and Padres), mostly have done much if anything, (apart from said Mets and whatever the Phillies did). Not really counting the Dodger retread the Braves got earlier as a major find, and he hasn't seem to have helped them much with their little offense problem, (basically feast or famine hitting). Don't get me wrong, I like Joc, and and happy to see more of him on the Braves, but he's streaky and not much more than about a Charlie Blackmon level hitter, (though I give the edge to Blackmon on a day to day basis, and to Pederson for clutch hitting). Wonder where and when Blackmon will go in the great Rockies sell-off?

    And the Angels are so close to being a good team; all they need is a bullpen and some hitting... If they'd just go shopping...

    I guess you could say that the Nats have jumped the baby shark...

    I just wish my Phillies could get a 4th or 5th starter, let alone bullpen help. Something!

    There are fans on Twitter calling for the Phils to sell, disillusioned and angry about the team, saying it wouldn't make sense to make the playoffs only to be wild card round cannon fodder and make a quick exit. I'm not one of those fans, but I wonder if the front office will make any moves. Guess we'll find out this afternoon.

    "You know we have 7 runs tonight. My homerun only gave us two. Everyone stepped up. Let's focus on that."

    The fact is on any large market team he is in the HOF easy because of his career. And would be talked about all the time. But he chose to stay with the Reds because he loves this town and the players. And it hurt some of his national press.
    Yea. And Check this out. He is the oldest player in baseball history ever to hit homers in 6 straight.

    Listening to ESPN Radio. Baseball analyst Tim Kurkjian brought up a reason the Dodgers traded for Max Scherzer: the mess with Trevor Bauer who's still under suspension by MLB and might not pitch for the team again this season, if ever again.

    Of course it was the big reason. The only thing I can fault the Dodgers on is perhaps failing to vet Bauer as thoroughly as they maybe should have. Beyond that, I don't see him ever pitching there again, given the image they still try to project. And the fact that it seems most of the players don't want him back either. But they also didn't want Scherzer to go to the Giants or Padres.

    Got an alert from Bleacher Report that closer Craig Kimbrel is going from the Cubs to the White Sox.

    And Kris Bryant was traded to the Giants. I feel bad for Cubs fans who watched their team taken apart like a cheap toy by a little kid on Christmas morning.

    As a Reds fan I am flying to Chicago tonight to bath int their tears.

    And I would feel bad for them if half of the so called fans even knew where Wrigley Field was before 2016.

    Are the Cubs even going to bother to try to win another game this season?

    On Thursday night, my Phillies scored eleven runs in a comeback win over the Nats. Last night, that same team managed all of one HIT against Pittsburgh, a kennel almost THIRTY games under .500 in a 7-0 loss. That performance was putrid on steroids!
