  4. Strasburg's quitting (tobacco) ... but who cares?

    Rob Neyer

    Rob Neyer

    From the Department of You Never Know, here's Rob Dibble yesterday: It all depends on which camp you fall in with. The All-Star Game, even with 34-man rosters, the new DH rule, and the re-entry rule, even with all the crazy changes, is still a game ...

  9. Lannan's fate just mildly shocking

    Rob Neyer

    What the Baseball Gods giveth (Stephen Strasburg's right arm), the Baseball Gods taketh away (John Lannan's extraordinary run of good luck). And so the Nationals' Opening Day starter is going down. Way down. The Washington Nationals have sent le...

  13. NL pitchers hit, but reluctantly

    Rob Neyer

    From the mailbag, garden-fresh: While watching the Strasburg game last night, did it scream out to you, like it did me, that the NL needs to add the DH? During his first AB in his first game, Strasburg didn't run out a guaranteed hit. Even Costas s...
