Bob Myers says Golden State didn’t acquire D’Angelo Russell just to trade him

Astros Will Use the Opener Tonight vs. Angels

The bullpen will be used a lot over the next two games. The Houston Astros have found themselves in a position that they did not think would happen. They have a starting pitching problem. After the 2018 season, where they had dominant starting pitching, it’s apparent that they have two holes in the rotation behind the top three pitchers. AJ Hinch has already split Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander up in the rotation with Wade Miley. It was expected that Brad Peacock was about to rejoin the rotation, but he had an injury setback meaning he would not start today. The Astros went into the...

James Paxton is on the mound to kick off a four-game set versus the Rays in the Bronx. The Yankees have started the second half on a positive note, as solid starting pitching and timely hitting led to a series win against the Toronto Blue Jays. Potential trade target Marcus Stroman threw a quality start yesterday, but it wasn’t enough against Masahiro Tanaka and the Yankees bullpen. Now the Bombers will welcome the Tampa Bay Rays into town as they try to extend their lead in the AL East.

Game Thread 7/15: Dodgers at Phillies

Is momentum a thing? No? What about winning a series, is that still a thing? The Phillies came back from the break looking no more effective than they went into it. The result? A series loss to the Nationals is two fashions exemplary of their two issues: absentee offense and bullpen instability. They scraped out a win in game three, and hopefully they can ride an on-fire Maikel Franco through four games with the (ugh) Dodgers. A couple wins here would go along way toward making this team look like it deserves a wild card spot. CONVINCE US.
