The Morning Edition (August 6, 2013)

From Last Night:

  • MLB hands down BioGenesis suspensions, no new names are big, and A-Rod is the only one to appeal
  • Greinke and the Dodgers edge Wainwright and the  Cards in a potential playoff preview
  • Atlanta beats the Nats despite a strong start for Strasburg, seemingly buries Nats
  • A player returns to the field and the media pays attention in Chicago

What I’m Watching Today:

  • Fully exonerated Gio Gonzalez goes against Teheran in DC (7p Eastern)
  • Battle of the Justin’s in Cleveland, Masterson and Verlander (7p Eastern)
  • Kuroda goes against Sale (8p Eastern)
  • Kershaw faces the Cardinals (8p Eastern)
  • Darvish takes on the Angels (10p Eastern)
  • Felix welcomes the Jays (10p Eastern)

The Big Question:

  • Can we finally stop talking about Biogenisis? 

Apparently, the media says no because A-Rod is appealing so we have to hear about it for weeks. Come on guys, let’s talk about baseball! For every word someone writes about A-Rod, it should be required that they also write one about the Pirates. I’ll start, the Pirates are the only team (entering Monday) who had four qualifying players to be above average on offense, defense, and on the bases using wRC+, UZR, and BsR. Fun!
