The Cubs should not trade for Nicholas Castellanos

Photo by Mark Cunningham/MLB Photos via The ballclub could use a bat, but not at the expense of defense. The Cubs are on pace to score 821 runs this season. That’s good, but that total ranks just fifth in the National League. They could use some offensive help. Thus, this rumor posted Sunday is of interest: The Cubs are among the teams showing interest in Nick Castellanos. They probably want to move Jason Heyward to center, add Castellanos RH bat in right. This one has some teeth.— Chris McCosky (@cmccosky) July 21, 2019 Nicholas Castellanos can hit, no doubt about it,...

Kevin Gausman dominates as Braves down Nationals 7-1

Photo by Logan Riely/ Josh Donaldson and Ronald Acuña Jr. homered to back Gausman. Kevin Gausman gave the Atlanta Braves exactly what they needed with a dominant performance to help lead them to a 7-1 win over the Washington Nationals. The Braves got things started quickly against Nationals starter Joe Ross. Dansby Swanson worked a one out walk and then moved all the way to third as Freddie Freeman blooped a single into short left. Josh Donaldson struck out but Nick Markakis came through with a two out, two-run single to put Atlanta in front 2-0. Ross would settle down from there...

Final Score: Giants 3, Mets 2 - Walked off again

Photo by Jason O. Watson/ Once again, the Giants beat the Mets in extra innings. For the third time in the last four games, the Mets were walked off by the Giants in extra innings, falling 3-2 in the twelfth. Steven Matz was solid for six innings and home runs from Michael Conforto and Amed Rosario put the Mets up early, but the offense went totally dormant after that and the bullpen eventually cracked. It’s debatable whether this makes the loss more or less frustrating, but the Mets didn’t even have a ton of opportunities in this one. They managed only five hits and four walks while...

It now seems fashionable to want to see the Steelers fail

Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports The Steelers may be a traditional powerhouse, but they’re one that hasn’t won a title in a long time. They’re perceived to be on the downturn, and that is why it’s so easy for national pundits to attack them at every opportunity. In case you haven’t noticed, the Steelers aren’t receiving a whole lot of love from the national pundits this offseason. That’s right, not many are predicting Pittsburgh will be much more than mediocre in 2019, with the average win-total sitting at around 9.5 or so. As for those national pundits, it seems they...
