  5. Disappointing Sandoval homers thrice

    Eric Karabell

  9. What's wrong with Justin Verlander?

    Eric Karabell

    Chicago White Sox outfielder Alex Rios did something noteworthy Tuesday night, tallying six hits in as many at-bats, while adding a pair of stolen bases and an RBI. The oft-overlooked Rios is rightly owned in all leagues, and good for him; he's provi...
