    D-backs get JD Martinez from Tigers for 3 prospects.

    Seattle Mariners: 2nd place in the AL West, only 1 game below .500, and needs more wins to catch 1st place than the AL worst-record, dead last Chicago White Sox.

    Thanks for the video - they were talking about it on the radio this morning and I had forgotten to look it up.

    Marlins 22 runs on 22 hits, Rangers 10 runs on 10 hits, playing time 4 hours and 1 minute. Adrian Beltre was ejected in the 8th. The umpire told him he needed to be standing in the on-deck circle. So he picked it up and dragged it 10 feet to where he had been standing. The umpire didn't seem to think it was funny.

    One of the Padres was standing mid-way between the on-deck circle and the batters box the other night - the umpire didn't say anything and deGrom didn't seem to care. Moving the on-deck circle seems like a reasonable response though.

    Nats hit 8 HRs today, including back to back to back to back HRs, the 8th time in MLB history that's been done.

    Had you told me back in the spring that by this late in July, the Padres would be 6+ games better than the Giants... I would've thought you were a special type of crazy.

    Atlanta even 1/2 game ahead of the Mets is almost as surprising.

    Blue Jays won on a walk off grand slam by Steve Pearce. Yes, that happened Thursday. But it happened again today.

    End of July power rankings:

    Team I'm most surprised by is still the SF Giants. When this season started, I'd never have guessed they would reach the 20's, let alone #30 out of 30. o_O

    Apparently the Mets are close to dealing Addison Reed to the Red Sox for 3 minor leaguers.
