New, 37 comments

There's a whole lot of left-handed news in today's edition. Take a click about a rough go for a starter, overworked relievers, and rebuilding outfielders. We've also got a friendly Cardinal, Baez on the move, Shark watch, and space maps.

  • Ryan Sweeney says he's not ready to be a DH. That's good, since he plays in the NL and doesn't hit quite enough to be a 'traditional' DH.
  • Kris Bryant has solid footing thanks to his parents.

  • Travis Wood says his rough outing was just one of those days.
  • Jonathan Mayo thinks Javier Baez will be the minor league home-run champ, unless he gets the call to the Cubs. Meanwhile, workmate Jim Callis thinks Kris Bryant will blast more homers. I find this to be a fantastic "no wrong answer" question.
