  • The Cardinals and Pirates both lost on Friday, and I got into a discussion about the value of passing the Pirates to lock in home field advantage in the Wild Card game. It matters.


  • Dexter Fowler’s defense has been solid this year, and it’s worth a look.
  • The Saturday morning Bullets discussed, among other things, why early swings aren’t always a bad thing.
  • Albert Almora walked things off for the Tennessee Smokies. He’s been extremely good in the second half.
  • The Cubs pulled off an incredible comeback to beat the Braves 9-7.
