NICK CASTELLANOS NEWS

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, Sep 4

Joe Nathan appears to react to booing fans and looks like an idiot

Nathan walked the first two batters he faced in a non-save, 4-run-cushioned situation, and the first out he recorded was a seed to left fielder Don Kelly...

Monkeys riding dogs chasing goats just isn't that weird anymore

They have inquired on guys such as Joakim Soria, Joaquin Benoit, Neal Cotts, Jonathan Papelbon, Antonio Bastardo, and surely many others that we don’t know about. If you’re following things closely then chances are you sit on one side of the fence...

And the biggest problem to be found with the offense...
