We are going to lose a Jonathan Sanchez start? Nooooooooo! Wow. There isn’t much in the world that sums up the 1980s quite like that. Last night’s game will be rescheduled and it will start over.

As the reigning Cy Young award winner and having been through the
arbitration process twice already, the Tampa Bay Rays' David Price is

The way everyone is talking about it, the NL world as we know it is coming to an end in the not-too-distant future. That is because everyone is speculating the the NL will eventually have to adopt the DH.

No longer will managers actually need to think about when to lift their starter for a pinch hitter...
