Links of the Day:
- How does a manager not pull his pitcher after giving up 10 runs? 20? 30? 40? 50? Even 60?
- Evan Longoria agrees to a 9 year 44 million dollar contract, but don't let the length or money fool you, the first six years are the only guarantee and that's only at 17 million. Essentially the Rays paid for three free agency years at roughly 9 mil per.
- Jeff Passan on the Mickey Mantle 565 foot homer.
Pic of the Day: Mackowiak with a bat.
