Prospectus Triple Play: Astros, Brewers, Athletics. "If [Adam] Everett improves with the bat, he could be a real asset. If he doesn't, the Astros may end up with the next Rey Ordonez--only Everett would be earning those Gold Gloves. " (Baseball Prospectus)

Mugs: "I was sad when my Jays scrapped [the four-man rotation]...See, the Jays are shelling out roughly $100 million a year less to their players than the Yankees are. In order to compete with the Yanks, they need to be lucky and they need to find different and cheaper ways to win. Four starting pitchers are cheaper than five. So, yeah, it was a gamble, but it would have been different and I don’t see the Jays beating the Yanks if they do everything the exact same way as the Yanks." (Mugs' Thoughts on Baseball, June 21)

Chris: "For all the negative writing and posting going on out in the world, people forget the Cubs lost 95 games last season. As I sit back and look I am happy with the season so far. We are contenders." (Yarbage Cub Review)

Joe Posnanski: "Most Cardinals fans will tell you that Cardinals fans are the best because they are the most knowledgeable. They understand the intricacies of the game. For instance, when Cardinals pitcher Cal Eldred walked Royals pitcher Jeremy Affeldt on four pitches Sunday, many of the fans booed. They knew, without anyone telling them, that this was not a good move." (Kansas City Star)

Aaron Gleeman: "Okay, so we've established that Joe Morgan often says things that don't make a whole lot of sense. But now, I think Joe Morgan has officially started to lose his marbles." (Aaron's Baseball Blog)

Derek Milhous Zumsteg: "Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Who's got the better Japanese player? We do, that's right, you whiny New Yorkers." (U.S.S. Mariner)

Marlins' Cabrera off to a smashing start. He hit an 11th-inning walk-off homer in his first major league game. (Orlando Sun-Sentinel)

Happy Halladay: Roy wins 11th consecutive start.
Pitching on three days' rest for the first time in his 100 career starts, Halladay (11-2) extended his team-record streak and the longest in the majors in six years.

"I felt the same," said Halladay, who pitched into the ninth inning. "We backed off on some of the work we do inbetween starts and some of the throwing, I think that might have had something to do with it, but I felt really good. I felt locked in and physically I felt as good as normal."
