So glad the Braves don't have to see Capuano anymore this year. Soft tossing lefties seem to give them fits and Capuano has owned them lately. He was cruising along to another 8+ inning, 1 run >5 hit game. They chased him in the 8th, tied the game 3-3, and put together a two-out rally in the bottom of the 11th to win 4-3.

Of course the f***ing Nationals won again. 70-49 through August 17th and still 4 games out of first.

Heyward is on pace for about a 25/20 type season. He's on 20 HR and 17 SB right now and has 61 RBI.

Very refreshing to see James McDonald get back on track tonight and toss 6 scoreless innings.

Either was @ the plate. It was a back & forth game and all kemp said was " let's go dre!"

The dodgers were chirpy all night though and it's hard to fault the plate ump he was probably a little unhinged by the dodgers from the get go.

It wouldn't qualify as a crash and burn to me. There's still a ton of games left. 6 games is a small least in that time-span. Now if they had like 20 games left with 6 up and lost it, then yes.

There's no excuse for that though. You can't have rabbit ears as an ump. Umpires are a necasarry evil, not an important part of the game

Although his bat is powerful enough to overcome those defensive shortcomings, Cabrera's defense put a large dent in his overall value. Then just 24 years old, it was unlikely that Cabrera's athleticism would improve enough to handle the position long-term.

To the general surprise of, well, everyone, the Tigers' new third baseman has been ... decent. At the plate, he has been his typical MVP-caliber self; no surprise there. In the field, he hasn't been as bad as expected. He looked awkward, especially early in the season, but at other times he's shown athleticism and agility.

His range rates below-average for the season, but he's started double plays very efficiently and he's made a few heads-up plays that saved the team a handful of runs. Overall, Baseball Info Solutions' DRS system estimates that he has played average defense thus far.


Cabrera deserves credit for holding his own at the hot corner, and it's helped the Tigers keep runs off the board. Boosted by the acquisition of Omar Infante, the entire Tigers infield seems to be holding it together. However, given his history, it's unlikely Cabrera and the Tigers can keep this up for the stretch run. In addition to Cabrera's past defensive struggles, Fielder (career minus-81 DRS at first base) also has had his share of defensive struggles, although he's held them in check this year (minus-6 DRS would be the second-"best" defensive season of his career).

Cabrera's body could wear down from a full season at third base and that could potentially take its toll in the field or even at the plate. If the effects are felt at an inopportune moment -- say, during any of the Tigers' seven remaining games against the first-place White Sox -- it could cost them the AL Central and a playoff spot.

The Cubs have signed Starlin Castro to a 7 year/60 million dollar contract extension.

Good deal for both sides. Although Castro is having some what of a down year, he's going to be very good.

I believe that's the same umpiring crew from the Kemp incident. Don't understand why the umps need to instigate a reaction out of escobar in that situation...
