News & Notes
  • The Nationals could use -- or rather, they need -- another bat, what with Matt den Dekker's questoinable status from his bruised ring finger, Anthony Rendon's apparent inability to hit the two-seamer, and Wilmer Difo's likely slower bat speed, which is to say, now is not the time for general manager Mike Rizzo to relax and separate the recycling.

  • How far Kansas City goes will depend on its young pitching after Scott Alexander; Wade Davis is ready to win, and Kris Medlen showed that he was very big last year.

  • And then there are the Brewers pitching questions: whither the good Tyler Thornburg? Can Yhonathan Barrios, with his fragile ligament, and Michael Blazek step up and produce?

  • Brandon McCarthy's makeup is as bright as anybody, including Jameson Taillon.

Apoetical Blues

ballad of mark shapiro

                Ryan Tepera

was attacked by a goose
in one of the busiest
Dairy Queens in

it convinced
Mark Shapiro
that his player was cursed

and put him on the trading block

the Mets are interested

the Blue Jays
will pick up some of his salary
