Note to @MLB trade deadline "bubble" teams: As of July 1 last year, every eventual playoff team had a record better than .500.--Fox Of course, if you are a game under and have had a lot of injuries, it is not impossible. It's rare, but it can hap...

Taylor Jungmann 4ip, 4h, 5r (4er but the error was his own), 2bb, 6k in his Double-A debut after a three-week break.--Adam, MLB.com Glad to see the BB/K ratio is back to normal. Hopefully, the rest will return with more work.

The Vertical is reporting that the Bucks have extended GM John Hammond through 2017-18, and after that expires, he will remain with the organization as a consultant for just hired assistant GM Justin Zanik, who will take over as GM.

MLBTR does such a good job of reporting trades and rumors, and such a horrible job when they try and go in depth on anything. Spending 2/3rd's of the piece talking about teams not on Braun's list he just updated is not just a waste of time, it's p...

Nobody cares how you wear your cap when you have a sub 1 ERA.

This seems like more of a publicity stunt than any type of strategery. As Rotoworld correctly points out, if he's such a good hitter, have him DH when he'd not pitching, as he might only go a few innings and leave the team without the DH for sever...

Nothing says desperation and losing more than "let's have a team meeting." If they worked, good teams would have them after every game.

Hillary still leads most, but Drudge has one with Trump up 4. Nothing surprises me at all in this election, as Donald has defeated all previous rules. That said, since Trump got enough delegates, all we've heard is Clinton friendly stuff happily ...

Al,  What number are you using for Wisconsin population? Seems high. Robert I googled it. The US Census Bureau said 5.75M for WI, 319M for the USA.

Record travel for the 4th of July weekend. Busiest days are today and Monday. 43M in USA, 920K in WI. That's 13% of the country and 16% of the state. I would assume much of this is because so many WI residents either have a family owned "cabin" ...

A week ago, the Rambling wife went to a movie with some lady friends of hers. I gave her my Marcus card to scan, as we get points and a variety of offers for each dollar you spend (most are pretty lame, such as "get a large popcorn if you buy a me...

I have received a couple emails in the past week from folks linking up Twitter and online message boards. Basically, to paraphrase: I'm unhappy with Stearns and Counsell, though I have no reason to be. We don't understand what they are doing. Wha...

Maldy starts today. Cue the casuals wondering if he's been traded. The thing is, it's much like the clowns that constantly predict the end of the world...eventually, they'll be right.

We're in the very best of hands.

I watched a whole documentary about the history of beer on Netflix. Beer used to have incredible value because the water was often full of bacteria and caused illness and death.

This is why we must have the internet.

This is why Governor Walker turned down a few million in federal money. If there was money to be made in high speed rail, someone would build it. When it's a boondoggle of mammoth proportion, they go to government and lie about how much it will c...

Senator John Barrasso says the U.S. needs a better strategy to battle terrorism.--Fox I fixed it for him.

Wonder how long Craig will go with Guerra if he keeps getting guys out...his high pitch count is 108.

Brewers are 27th in UZR, the defensive metric I prefer, which has them at -6 runs for the season. The 2nd most popular metric, DRS, has them as 9th, and are 16 runs to the good. The main difference is that DRS takes shifts into consideration, wh...

Today was Kindness Day (snicker, guffaw), so some Brewers' players, front office folks, and various reps went out in the community and gave away tickets, bought people lunch, and so on. Mark and Debbie A went out with Ryan Braun. Those thinking B...

Funny, when I glanced at the AAA boxscore last night, both Kyle Lohse and Neal Cotts pitched against the Sky Sox last night. Lohse can opt out and supposedly, many teams are trying to convince him to do so. With specialization so prevalent in the...

I noticed this too. He's called names because he's a Republican. He's been in the public eye for 30 years and the word "racist" never came up once.

We all know guys that sell their sports picks are, at best, more salesmen than experts, because if they could pick 55% winners, they would just bet the games and not bother selling them. However, Deadspin is fiction disguised as news. Their only ...

I giggle whenever I see media that prints mostly half truths and rumors get very concerned about "ethics."

We're in the very best of hands. Trump couldn't dig any more dirt out of the hole if he tried. Rock bottom was hit years ago.

As if we needed one more.

I don't know what Meghan's talking about. They're just a JV team.

I see the president made a statement about the death of Pat Summit. I guess this proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Summit was never a police officer or member of the military.
