    Tim Anderson DFA'd. Amazing how some guys fall off. He was a star player. He hurt his groin and tore a ligament in his finger and he's basically been Martin Maldonado with the bat since.

    Honestly part of why I don't want to trade for Luis Robert. Don't trust anyone from the White Sox even if that is totally unfair.

    Psst....Their pitchers (besides maybe Rodon) coincidentally all lost spin at the same time when MLB implemented sticky checks and it broke their pitching staff. Not sure what happened with hitters.

    I’m guessing Verlander’s season is at risk.

    Please, I don't want Yordan competing either. It sucks for baseball if they don't, but honestly I don't care about the HR derby anymore. Too many participants have struggled in the 2nd half of seasons.

    Avoiding jail time?
    Or maybe being banned by MLB?
