I'll get that WSJ article if anyone really wants it, but the most relevant stat I've seen is that Tebow is striking out in almost 50% of his PAs at AA.

Although I'm not sure why they didn't put Solarte at SS and let Russell play 2nd. Solarte has actually played a little SS at least. But whatever, who really cares at this point.

Walking off on his own probably wasn't the best idea, but adrenaline does some fucked up shit. He looks like he's pretty toasted to me.

I bet Altuve is going to be a monster in this Yankees/Astros series. He has pride and when you have pride you play better when you're facing the best player at your position.

In another installment of ESPN's "Do the White Sox exist?" Buster Olney is getting roasted on twitter for saying Mitch Moreland and Justin Smoak deserve to be in the All-Star game and over Jose Abreu.

Absolutely nobody on the Jays deserves to go to the all star game besides MAYBE Pillar but he is good at stuff that doesn't get you there and even so there are shit loads of people ahead of him.

The Hiroshima Carp just finished a game. 10th inning, they were down 4-7 in the bottom of the inning, got it tied, and with the bases loaded, the Lions walked in the Carp's winning run. Ha - what a shit way to lose a nice extra inning lead.

I can't argue that. I'm not familiar with what the issue is. I know it's his back but that's pretty vague.

Fastball has been declining every year, gives up a lot of home runs, can never stay healthy. He could pull a Verlander and bounce back, but as of right now it's not looking too good.
