Wow, Twins are having a busy month!  Unexpected Correa trade, now an all-star trade for a good young pitcher.  Fun for my brothers-in-law!

While fans love the hype of prospects in trades, remember this:
In 2018, pitcher Justus Sheffield and third baseman Miguel Andujar were the New York #Yankees' prized No. 3 and No. 4 prospects in their organization.
They were designated for assignment on the same day Thursday.

Cardinals home games will be even less fun to watch on TV in 2023–Chip Caray is leaving the Braves to become the Cardinals PBP guy.

He's definitely now on the right side of the Cubs-Cardinals rivalry.

That will be an interesting physical exam.

Right now might be a good time to buy low on Clevinger.

Congrats to Scott Rolen on making the Hall of Fame.  Too bad for Todd Helton that he fell just a few votes short.
