How Good Is Your #4 Starter?: Jeff Sackmann, of The Hardball Times and Brew Crew Ball runs the numbers and concludes: back-rotation starters suck. But you might be surprised at how bad they generally are.
Sanchez tosses a no-hitter against the Diamondbacks.: Everyone who thought the Marlins would be in the wild card race, raise your hand.
Cricket explained from an American perspective.: I've always been a bit baffled by cricket, and news reports of matches do little to help. If you've ever wondered what's going on, this explains things pretty well.
On Meeting a Legend.: The Baltimore Sun's Rick Maese has a lifelong dream come true when he meets The Champ.
How to build a winner.: Doug Melvin, the man who signed A-Rod to the largest contract in American sports history, has been quietly building a winner in Milwaukee on the 25th largest payroll in the sport. Using the Minnesota Twins and Billy Beane's Oakland A's as models, Melvin has amassed deep talent at reasonable prices. Can they make the postseason dance this year? Some say no, but even if they don't, it's a great time to watch baseball in Milwaukee.
Mitch Albom is a terrible writer.: Documenting the ways Mr. Albom stinks, by Morrie Schwarzenegger.
Deion Sanders on Moss.: "Randy is the kind of dude that he's like a beautiful woman who can't cook, doesn't want to clean and doesn't want to take care of kids." (2nd item on the page, more inside)

258!: Ichiro breaks Sisler's record of hits in a season.
Rob Neyer makes a boo-boo: To continue the theme of ill-considered reactions, Neyer gets angry at a book, flinging it across the room and dissing the book anonymously on Amazon. Then he gets outed. Another perspective.
Ben"DL move waiting to happen" Sheets strikes out 18 in a win over Atlanta, the most in the majors in three years. This performance puts the Brewers back over .500. Especially in the strongest division in the league, does this mean the Brewers have turned the corner?
Woo-hoo!!!!!!!: The Seligs are beginning the process of selling the Brewers! Praise God! Holy sh*t! This is the best day of my life!
Clemens un-retires.: The Astros have signed him to a 1-year deal.
Goddam Brewers.: Ulice Payne is leaving. Uecker gives a mixed message about the ownership. The politicians want answers. We haven't had a winning season in twelve years, and haven't been to the playoffs in more than twenty. Can anything be done to save Milwaukee baseball?
