I can't even imagine the parents grief.

I'm also feeling bad for the player.  He's gotta feel like crap too.

The team is from the town of Liberal, Kansas.   

Read the many heartfelt comments.   And then consider the yahoo who couldn't resist sniping at the name "Liberal".  There's a time and place for everything but I can't recall anything more objectionable than what this guy said.

I think they deleted it, some people are just stupid.  When Keith Law tweeted it out he described it as Liberal boy and I was wondering why he would describe him that way.  140 characters can be bad sometimes.

Maybe they should have just described him as a Seward County boy instead.  Of course, there'd probably still be Twitter complaints from people who hate Alaska.

Liberal, KS boy or Kansas boy would have worked.  I certainly didn't keep me from clicking on the link.

Phillies are 12-3 after all-star break.

Takeaway:  even bad teams get hot and good teams get cold.  162 game season.

The Braves fell down 6-0 against the Giants earlier tonight, but now it's 6-5 in the bottom of the 7th.  Go Braves.

Glad we played the Mets when we did.  I think we're probably going to need every one of those 7 wins.

Zach Godley, with 6 shutout innings against Nats, and Welly Castillo homers again.

1.50 ERA for Godley and .538 slugging for Castillo.

Oh, forget it already.

Giants with three consecutive 2 out hits in the top of the 9th to regain a 2 run lead.  Sucks that the Giants have such a weak opponent while the Cubs have to face the Pirates.

Pierzynski!  2 run homer to tie the game with 2 outs in the 9th.

Come on, Maybin...walk off.

If Godley can just keep up that 98.9% LOB%, the Cy Young is in the bag. Castillo makes me a little sad.
