In case you've been wondering what Quentin Berry has been up to since life after the Tigers, here he is making a big fool of himself.

The last thing Bud Selig should do before retiring in January is lift Pete Rose's ban.

Mets vs. Braves tied 3-3 in the bottom of 9. Mets get runners on 1st and 2nd (in part due to a non-reviewable neighborhood play that gets overturned), with no outs. They do not bunt for some reason. 6 guys come to the plate. All 6 reach base. The Mets do not score. 2 force outs at 3rd (after they didn't bunt), and a force out at 2nd ends the inning. Fredi gets tossed for arguing the non-reviewable call.

I have over 7.5.

The sky in Denver is ridiculous. They evacuated the upper deck. It's dark there now but 15 minutes ago it looked like Ghostbusters. Tulo = Zuul.

Saw a debate today on FB regarding Billy Martin over whether or not he should be in the HOF.

Was curious to see what the Swill thought.

I'm sure that everyone has known this for 36 hours already, but dammit it at least deserves some mention.

Vin Scully says he's returning for 66th season with Dodgers

I'm only half joking when I say that MLB should just fold up shop when Vin finally retires. I mean, what is baseball without great announcers?

I'd have Billy out of the top 5 managers of his era. Would have Herzog, Anderson, Weaver, Lasorda and Dick Williams. Also, for Billy it might be one of those cases of 'character issues'.

Haven't watched a Marlins game since last year. Just looked at the standings, and that's a very winnable division imo. My money is on the Braves, but if the Mets or Marlins got hot I could see them upsetting.

Twentyeight years ago today was the start of a Cubs and Astros game that would go 18 innings, take two days to complete, and use 53 players.

The losing pitcher was a 20-year-old kid with a terrible mustache making his MLB debut. The rest is history.

Gardenhire gone after 13 seasons.

Ron Gardenhire out as Twins manager

Too bad.  I always thought he was one of the good guys in baseball.

No one is more puzzled by Max Scherzer’s collapse than Max Scherzer

What on earth is wrong with Max Scherzer?

He wishes he could tell you. He sounds like he wishes he could tell himself. Look in his eyes — the blue one, the brown one. Neither has a clue.

WHIP has "ballooned" to 1.45 in the last seven starts compared to some ridiculous sub 0.9 number before.
