The Morning Edition (July 29, 2013)

From Last Night:

  • Fernandez goes 8, K’s 13, walks none to lead the Fish past Cole
  • Ross narrowly out pitches Corbin to win in AZ
  • Cingrani and Capuano pitch to a draw before Puig sends everybody home
  • Wood shuts down the Giants, who waste a nice start from Lincecum
  • Gordon’s 12th inning bomb lifts the Royals
  • The Nats unload on the Mets, win 14-1
  • Lester leads the Sox to a 5-0 win
  • Toronto walks off on Houston
  • Jeter homers in his return, Soriano leads the Yanks to victory

What I’m Watching Today:

  • David Price tries to stay hot versus the Sox (6p Eastern)
  • Weaver faces Garza (7p Eastern)
  • Beachy makes his 2013 debut (7p Eastern)
  • Jacob Turner goes against the Mets (7p Eastern)

The Big Question:

  • Are the BioGenesis suspensions coming today?

Reports have the suspensions coming down this week, likely all at once. We’ll see which players are actually affected, which rumors were wrong, and which players have kept their names out of the press. The impact on the pennant race will be real, but likely not substantial because a given player can only have so much impacted over 55 games. Teams will scramble to find replacements, but the impact will be unpredictable. We’ve had months of speculation that was absolutely unnecessary, now we’re actually going to see something happen. Stay tuned.
