These Royals are just not going away. Lotta resiliency with KC

Some useful insight into yet another Cuban defector, this time OF Yasmani Tomas.

Good piece, although the conclusion about the strike zone being to blame isn't as strongly supported as the "exoneration of the shift" data. But the numbers don't lie; the shift isn't to blame for declining offense.

Looks like there's some hope for Chicago. Some...Chicago Hope?
It's happening, #Cubs fans. Javier Baez is expected to join the big leagues tomorrow: http://atmlb.com/1mg7lUS

Keeping up with all these moves is exhausting! What a day!

And yes, I'm not happy at all that the Phillies didn't make ANY moves.

"At this point, the odds look good that the Phillies will have paid Ryan Howard $125 million to be less valuable than a guy they could've found in the minors and paid the league minimum."

So with the second half set to start tomorrow, here's how I think things will shake out.

NLE: Washington
NLC: St. Louis/Cincinnati*
NLW: Los Angeles
NLWC: Milwaukee/San Francisco

ALE: Baltimore
ALC: Detroit
ALW: Oakland
ALWC: Los Angeles/Seattle

NLCS: Washington vs. Los Angeles
ALCS: Baltimore vs Oakland

World Series: Washington vs Oakland

Champions: Oakland A's

*conditional on if the Cardinals get David Price. If so, then I think St. Louis takes it. Otherwise, I'm going with Cincinnati.

Yikes. Waino is getting lit up. 3 extra base hits in the first, including the Miggy homer. Kershaw could be in next inning.
