That's alright. So did the Braves a week or two ago....at home. Definitely the lowest point of the season so far.

Unbelievably terrible sequence for Sox against Rays. Daniel Navas dumb ass somehow managed to not score from 2nd on a DOUBLE over the rightfielders head. Then on the very next play, Nava is called out at home on a should of been sac fly, where he was CLEARLY safe.

You advanced stats guys, what do the numbers say about Simmons defense? Is he the best defensive SS in baseball? I mean I know he's elite, just wondering if the advanced numbers show him as the best. He made two sick plays tonight that saved runs. I'm starting to think his range starts at the second base bag and just extends all the way to the stands down the 3B line. With Chris Johnson's horrendous defense at 3B, who knows how many games we would've lost if we just had a league average SS.

Simmons has 6 WAR on defense alone through 150 games of his career. That's insane.

If he can ever develop into even a 120 wRC+ and .350 wOBA offensive player he's going to be one of the best players in baseball period - maybe even the best.

phillies third base prospect is being called up today cody asche, looks like michael young is on the move. also the phillies are asking boston for their top prospect xander bogaerts if they want lee. glad they're asking for a good prospect this time instead of getting raped like they did last time they traded him.

It's good that MLB is finally doing things that could make a difference in limiting PEDs(personally, I don't care what the players do, but if it's against the rules, at least enforce them) however, it's a joke that it's Selig still as commissioner, and trying to act all hard on PEDs considering how much he profited on them and how happy he was to do so. Selig should have been ousted as commissioner a long time ago. Guy is one of the biggest hypocrites in sports and really a coward who tries to deflect blame for how rampant PEDs were in the 90s until the mid 00s.

Melky and Colon have already served their suspensions according to MLB. The SD player you're referring to is probably Everth Cabrera (i'm guessing). Not sure why he is going to avoid suspension unless I'm forgetting that he's already served his suspension...

There's virtually no chance of that happening. If you are the braves you are praying he becomes a 90-100 wrc guy. ( which would make him a ~6 win player his d is that good

Yasmani Grandal? That's the only other one, and he makes sense as he has served his ban...
