News & Notes
  • Orioles GM Dan Duquette works miracles with his payroll, and if Ryan Webb holds up, he may have done it again, with Brad Brach and Darren O'Day et al anchoring the staff.

  • Cubs critics see that Mike Olt and Chris Coghlan are only getting older, but Jed Hoyer knows that his team is built on defense and pitching, and that if Logan Watkins is healthy -- which he wasn't because of a broken wrist -- they can still score enough runs to win.

  • If you've been watching the Astros this week, Dallas Keuchel has been throwing as well as he has in years, and it's amazing what being dull will do for a career, especially that of a man who has gone through so much.

  • Understand, Chris Owings could be like Bryce Brentz in the Diamondbacks lineup, to fit in with Didi Gregorius, A.J. Pollock, et al.

Apoetical Blues

reflections on the reds

few places have been
affected by the economy more than
Cincinnati

so don't look for
Walt Jocketty to have much payroll flexibility

but

he knows
if he can land a Grant Green

Dario Alvarez

or
         Ed Easley

(Cardinals general manager
John Mozeliak is reluctant to deal him

but may
if the right deal comes along)

the Reds still have a chance
