Peavy eats innings.

My Tigers are looking like a professional ball club once again.

I hope Peralta is not on the list Monday because we need help on the infield without him being sat down for 50 games.

Peralta is gone... :p  and after the next 4 games the tigers will be in second place... lets go tribe!!

I wonder what the overall batting average is for pitchers in the NL?

It can not be very high.

I heard a compelling argument for the AL and the DH.  Mostly about more offense and extending hitter's careers.

I don't know what to think about the Reds. They can't get a big hit when they need it and they can't beat good teams. There's a chance they could still make playoffs but they had better start beating some good teams or they'll be at home come October. It's almost as disappointing as last fall when they left San Fran up 2-0 and lost the next three to lose the series.

Ruffchaser - when the Cards were at the Pirates last week they did a comparison of the Cards/Pirates/Reds records against above .500 teams and below .500 teams.  As I recall, and I could be wrong, the Cards record was worse than the Reds against teams with better than .500 records. (The Pirates had the best record of the three against above .500 teams. Go Bucs!)

My point is with the injury to Molina and multiple series against the Pirates/Reds, and series against the National, Dodgers and Braves, the Cards might be in for rough stretch. Don't count out your Reds yet.

211 Games he got, but will continue to play while he appeals. Does he get paid?

Assuming his suspension is similar to Braun's regarding pay he would not be paid. Not that he needs it.

A-Rod (hole) is appealing his suspension, quite likely because he feels like he'll never be able to come back and play at the big league level after serving such a long suspension. He will be paid while he's playing, but no players are paid while serving a league suspension. He is the only one of the suspended players who has decided to appeal their suspension.

What's interesting is that a number of clean players have been coming out and publicly calling for harsher penalties for those who cheat by using PEDs and lifetime bans are what some of them are saying should be the penalty for a second offense.

Also, the players' union has been silent on this whole episode; that's telling.

Yeah, finally. After listening to the guys on MLB and on FOX Sports (esp Orel Hersheiser and John Kruk) it seems to me the vast majority of the players who are clean have finally had it with the ones who are dirty.

 All those big names get all those long suspensions and the union sez nothing. Good. Finally. Get rid of the bums and lets play some ball!

If he walks away , that frees up huge money that the NY Yankees could use to replace him . They won't admit it but they want him to go . They know without PED's he's just a below avg player . As disappointed as I was when we lost what I thought was a sure thing bringing him to Boston , I sure am glad now .

How 'bout those Dodgers, with fourteen straight road wins? Wow!

And the Tigers are on a tear right now. I wonder what tomorrow will bring from the commissioner's office...

I can't believe the Dodger turnaround in the last month, from the cellar to first in the division!!  I can officially start bleeding blue again!!  :<img src=:'>

I'm not a big fan of the NCAA but if major league sports would adopt some of their penalties, things like no post season games and forfeiting championships, I'm betting the teams would take a more active role regarding drug use and behavior.

The union stated they wouldn't defend people that had overwhelming evidence of PED use. As a good faith measure and to lessen the likely hood for appeals Selig's office informed the union of the players and the proposed suspensions so they would know how to proceed. I believe the MLBPA's advise to everyone was to take the suspensions and get them over with. I believe that's why they all accepted them except A Rod. I'm sure they recommended it for him as well but he's just an idiot.

I heard the Yankees were trying to get involved with the discussion between the player's union and the MLB front office and Selig was livid about it. I honestly think the Yanks want A Rod gone for lots of reasons and they'll take it anyway they can. I'm sure they would have been happy with the suspension he received but would have been overjoyed with a lifetime ban.
