Home cooking is so nice. The Angels return to the Big A and resume winning. Matt Shoemaker resumes pitching decently.

Tyler Skaggs, David Freese pace Angels to 9-3 win over Astros

The ball was in play, closely guarding its future plans while it dribbled meekly down the third-base line. Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs turned away. If he was going to lose a no-hitter on a swinging-bunt single in the fourth inning, he didn’t want to watch. The ball decided to turn foul at the last second and Skaggs exhaled. One pitch later, he lost the no-hitter on a line-drive...

St. Louis Cardinals: A look at the weakest position going into the 2014 MLB Draft

Last week, I brought you a look at the revamped shortstop position that has added several new players in the last 12 months. While that position is bottom heavy to an extent, there is a lot of upside. Enough upside that would allow the organization to look in other areas when it comes to the draft.
