I swear the only thing that can get the Braves back on track is playing the Nationals. That team goes completely mental whenever Atlanta comes to town. I predict the Nationals will probably win the division by 8 games and lose 15 out of 19 to the Braves season.

Reyes is hurt again and the Jays are in a tailspin.

How soon until Gibbons starts challenging his players to fights again?

I think the margin will be slimmer like <5 games either way. They'll have break that dependency on the long ball.

AA just needs to sign Shea Hillenbrand to a one-week contract.

If some back-of-the-envelope math I just did is correct, Gwynn averaged a strikeout every 23.576 plate appearances.

Mark Reynolds would have to avoid striking out in his next 27,626 plate appearances to match that.
Well, at I guess he could take a swing at that..
He swings at everything else, so why not.
One would think after ten years in the bigs, someone would clue him in to the fact that leading the strikeouts per season stat is not good for a hitter...So glad to be rid of his ass. Prado is twice the hitter he ever was and Goldschmidt makes Reynolds look silly.

Should do it now, losing 2 of 3 to a bad Reds team is worthy if a rumble.

That's the best game I can remember seeing Tillman pitch. I saw him pitch in the minors too. Especially in Yankee stadium. Tanaka battled strong for 7 innings and the Yankees bats were left in the clubhouse. Congrats on a good series Baltimore. It's going to be tight down the stretch.

Lincecum just threw another no-hitter.

Lincecum threw 6 hitless innings against the Cubs earlier this year too before getting pulled. He's the shit.

As far as I can tell, Tim Lincecum is now one of three pitchers to have multiple Cy Youngs and multiple no-hitters to his name, and is by far the worst of them (the others being Sandy Koufax and Randy Johnson). God bless the Padres offense.

I'm seen this comment around the internet and it's pissing me off. Of course it should count. A no hitter is a no hitter, and they were playing against a Major League baseball team. To discredit an achievement because of the team it was against is crazy.
