They’ve Adjusted to Trevor Story

They say you can’t predict baseball, but that’s nonsense. You can’t predict all of baseball, but you can definitely predict some of baseball. One of those predictions that any one of us could’ve made: There was no way Trevor Story was going to keep that up. It was so obvious that even saying it would’ve been empty. Pointless. The prediction was essentially implied by the...

A huge key to being a big league outfielder is having a strong arm. Colorado Rockies outfielder Gerardo Parra showed his off Monday night in Cincinnati, and the Reds’ Jay Bruce was his latest victim. Bruce sent a ball into the gap in left-center in the fifth inning, and at worst, Bruce had a stand-up double. But the ball got away, and Parra seemed to have misplayed the ball off...

Jake Arrieta’s dominance reaching more historic levels

The “friendly confines” of Wrigley Field have been just that for Jake Arrieta. Conversely, facing the Cubs ace at the old park on the north side of Chicago is quite the unpleasant experience. On Saturday, it was the Colorado Rockies who were rudely greeted by the wrath of the 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner. Arrieta went eight shutout innings in a 6-2 Cubs victory — making...
