The Twins are in the midst of 35 games in 34 days heading into the All-Star break and they need pitching. They lead the American League Central by one game.

Opportunity. Someone is going to hopefully step up and get hot and realize there’s a need for more depth in the rotation in terms of competitiveness and consistency. If I was young and saw what was going on here and I was a starting pitcher, I’d be hungry. We talked about shaping up the rotation a couple weeks ago. I didn’t think at that point we’d be running the guys out there that we are, but there have been some injuries and different things. It’s reality.Paul Molitor

The Tigers have scored 13 or more times in six of 13 games in June

The Baltimore Orioles have a -54 run differential on the road and a -2 run differential at home

  • Run Differential = -56

Phillies’ starting pitchers have made it through seven innings 13 times in 65 starts.

Injury Updates

Cam Bedrosian is ready to be activated today, but it is unclear of the role he will play in the bullpen.

Bedrosian will pitch in the back end of our bullpen (I will) try to get his feet settled and get him an inning or two to get back into the major league flow, A lot of guys in our ’pen are pitching to their capabilities, which is one of the reasons we’re hovering around .500. Adding one more player with his upside is going to be a huge boost for us.Mike Scioscia

    Buster Posey felt sudden pain in his surgically reconstructed ankle after hitting a home run last night but it sounds like he may only miss two games. Grab Wilson Ramos if he is still available in your league..

    Matt Harvey allowed another three homers over four innings last night. He is suffering from a tired arm. Who knows what the Mets will do with him. Cargo is benched..

    I wore my Mets hat out the first night I was in Philadelphia, and when I told that to GoFigure, she said, "Mets in Philly, no good. Philly is a total homer town, home teams only. If you aren't sporting home colors, there's no good interaction." Then I tried to talk to a girl at […]

    Cam Bedrosian will not be activated today as expected because he is ‘not ready’ to face live batters. Is this guy soft or what is the deal? Just when you started to like Gerardo Parra, he hurts his neck and sits somewhere in between the bench and the disabled list. Expect him to hit the […]

    Everyone knows that when an MLB grand slam is hit, Papa John’s gives 40% off the next day with the code PAPASLAM right? Last night there were seven, the most ever in one day.

    The guy who got Mr. Met fired feels real proud of his four second video, telling everyone that he was not the one heckling things at Mr. Met about 'yo momma'. I think I will heckle him until he blocks me or flips me off, then i will call his job and get him canned […]

    Phillies GM Matt Klentak contradicted manager Pete Mackanin yesterday by saying that the Phillies are committed to giving Maikel Franco more time to snap his slump, Mr. Met got fired for flipping off a fan yesterday and James Paxton is the seventh-hardest throwing starting pitcher in baseball history

    Last week Pete Mackanin benched Maikel Franco for two games, but instead of talking to him, he waited for Franco to approach him. Last year he did the same thing to Odubel, who never showed up to talk about it because he thought he was getting rest. WTF kind of communication is this?

    Joe Maddon isn’t ‘ready’ to give up on Ian Happ even though he is 2 for his last 21 and struck out four times last night. Is this the same as not giving up on Kyle Schwarber as the leadoff batter? That worked out well. The question is when, not if they will give up […]
