I thought so too. If Boston is picking up Peavy's entire remaining contract then that probably explains Chicago's kinda weak return.

The Nationals have been a huge disappointment this year. Not that I care, but they're an absolute trainwreck right now.

The trade deadline sucked.

biggest trade was the Astros trading RHP Bud Norris to the Orioles for OF LJ Hoes.

Oh, and the D-Backs pretty much gave Ian Kennedy away to the Padres, they got a few relievers for a guy who nearly won the Cy Young a few years ago. Kevin Towers is a pretty awful GM.

Meant to post about this earlier.

Did anyone see the BS that happened in the Bucs-Cards game? Burnett complained about a call and then ump nearly charged the mound on him. Umps are just the absolute worst.

Well, I think I can finally stop worrying that the Pirates will collapse and miss the .500 mark.

Casually watching a very good, very critical division battle with playoff implications (seeding) written all over it between STL and Pittsburgh. I already had prior knowledge that PNC Park was regarded as one of the league's best stadiums, but sitting through the bulk of an entire game (at home, obviously, wish I was in person) solidifies that popular opinion.

The city of Pittsburgh in general a fortune enough to have a franchise as epic as the Steelers are as it is, not to mention in possession of the NHL's best player (commonly accepted as) ... if only the Steel City had a solid baseball franchise to complement it all. Sure, the Pirates are playing great this season, but they haven't made the post season since 1992 (consequently, being the same season they traded Barry Bonds).

The game just ended; pretty epic regular season game considering the stakes in the balance. Always been a fan of underdog teams, and since I was in my teens, I've been slightly cheering for the Pirates and majorly the Royals. Nothing significantly gratifying, but it's kinda cool to see the black & gold ARRR'z finally doing something other than being the cellar of the NL Central (which they shared with Cincinnati for many seasons minus the recent success of the Reds in recent years).

Now if only the Royals could finally do something besides finishing around .500 - typically starting the season strong and falling off sharply shortly after the All-Star break, rinse and repeat year-after-year it seems. We keep hearing from the analysts, experts, etc - "this is the year Kansas City gets it done" ... "Kansas City has some of the best up-and-coming pitches" ... "the Royals are ready to excel" blah blah blah. I'll believe it when I see it.

It's my understanding Kauffman stadium still provides one of the league's best experiences for the average fan compared to the rest of the league respectively, but isn't it one of the oldest active ballparks? I hate when franchises talk about renovations, upgrades, etc. - but that tells me a bandaid is being used when you might as well just go ahead and heal the entire wound. Granted, living in the RW things aren't that simple, but it'd be nice! Didn't Kansas City get a "renovated" Arrowhead stadium too? Damn, where you are KC? Open the checkbook already! Tech N9ne is somewhere shaking his head, LOL.
