What Else is Going on In Baseball...

  • Cue saxophone... And now I am going to be singing this all day. - Cut4
  • I have known two people who played baseball with one arm, and they were both the best players on their respective teams. Meet Pete Gray, who played in 77 games for the St. Louis Browns. - Cut4
  • It is Ghostbusters night in Toledo and guess who is promoting it? His name rhymes with Smill Shmurry. (thanks flood!) - Fox Sports
  • What Dave Duncan and Crash Davis don't tell you. - Fox Sports
  • We applaud Matt Adams for "effing that shift", but should he be fighting it in the first place? - Sports on Earth
  • Mike Matheny is the only manager to have issued a rage-less intentional walk this year. - Beyond the Box Score
  • John Axford loses his job as the Indians closer. (courtesy of flood - the link, not necessarily Axford's demotion, although I am not ruling it out.) - SBNation
  • Around two-thirds of the league is stuck at .500. Which teams will pull away? - Sports on Earth
  • A Red Sox fan with down syndrome sings the National Anthem at Fenway and it is marvelous. (thanks flood!)- Fox Sports
  • Jose Fernandez will undergo season ending elbow surgery and you are probably reacting somewhat like this. (thanks to stl ex-pat!) - SBNation; SBNation


  • If that sounded familiar, that's because it is. How Dan knew my iTunes playlist, I may never know... - Viva el Birdos
  • By they way, voting for the All Star Game is open. Let's stuff those ballots! - MLB

  • Kolten Wong has been recalled! Operation Free Kolten Wong is in motion. - Viva el Birdos
  • SBNation does a wonderful review of Willie McGee. - SBNation
  • The summer the Cardinals won the World Series I found this video and David Freese quickly became my favorite person ever. It only got worse after the postseason. - College Humor

Other Things...

  • The NBA Playoffs are still underway. Right now it is the third quarter as I watch the Clippers try to hold back the Thunder and elimination. I don't think they will. The Pacers have already advanced, defeating the Wizards. The Heat have defeated the Nets and San Antonio defeated... someone. - SBNation
  • The NHL Playoffs are also in full swing, although I still have sour grapes so I am not really even watching. - SBNation
  • But, speaking of NHL, don't forget to vote for Blues forward T.J. Oshie for the cover of NHL 15 at this link or tweeting the hashtag #NHL15Oshie. I don't even play that game, but I just like my team to win stuff. And besides, look at that face. - YoutubeSt. Louis Game Time
